As you may. or may not, know I have been spending the last couple of days playing with my new stylus and different apps for drawing. i now have six different packages that are all made to draw/paint on the ipad.... and you really need them all.... for the same reason you need watercolor pencils and color pencils and markers... they all do the "same" thing, only different. The great thing is only one of the six I have costs more than $4.99! IDraw costs $8.99. It is really hard to complain about the price when it does so much of what Coreldraw and illustrator does! It really is amazing that they make apps so cheap! Why????
Today I played with Sketchbook Pro. There are two features that make it today's favorite.
The first is that is has a mirroring tool that, when switched on, you only have to draw one side and the other side gets drawn at the same time. I am a lover of symmetry so it makes me very happy.
The second fun surprise is that it has a Copic color palette! it actually has 3 different palettes and the Copic one is buried underneath the others so you may never discover it if you aren't a button pusher! Unfortunately, the one weakness on almost all maps is the lack of documentation! pitiful! But, thankfully, I am a button pusher. :-)
I guess I might as well mention that I'm also using a new app ($2.99 ) made for writing this blog... sure hope it works :-) we shall see.
