Get drawing with Affinity Photo for iPad
Affinity Photo for iPad comes with plenty of drawing power – here, Bob Byrne puts the app and Apple Pencil to the test
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.
