Get draw­ing with Affin­ity Photo for iPad

Bob Byrne puts the app and Ap­ple Pen­cil to the test, by il­lus­trat­ing comic pan­els.

Affin­ity Photo for iPad is clearly an un­ri­valled photo edi­tor – and it’s hard to ar­gue with its one-off price of £19.99 – but how does Serif’s app fare when it comes to cre­at­ing il­lus­tra­tions from scratch? For this ar­ti­cle I’ve put the app through its paces while draw­ing and colour­ing a full comic page.

Just to spice things up a lit­tle, I de­cided to cre­ate this page far away from my usual stu­dio mess, us­ing Affin­ity Photo on the new iPad Pro 10.5-inch with the Ap­ple Pen­cil. It felt great to be truly mo­bile and to work when­ever in­spi­ra­tion struck: in the back of the car on the way to the su­per­mar­ket, a hos­pi­tal wait­ing room and (of course!) a cou­ple of dive bars.
