  • Posted to Has anyone switched from sketching on paper (or sketchbook) to an iPad?, Aug 13, 2020

    It's been mentioned here already but getting Procreate changed everything for me. I too had the same worry about lag, pressure, texture, paper-feel etc but after using procreate for just a few days I was hooked. I started to really enjoy it once I'd found some brush sets that I really liked using (it's really overwhelming at first). I use these ones most: https://gumroad.com/dizzytara and also these less frequently but they're still very good: https://www.maxpacks.art/. There's loads out there. The dizzy tara brush called sketch oval is my favourite for sketching with because it's better than the built in pencil brushes and has a great shading property when used on the side.

    Fantastic, thank you so much for your input. Adding pre-defined scaling options (such as the Golden Ratio you favour) was actually an idea we thought might be useful and we hadn't considered the experience of a print-based mental model person coming to it so that was great insight. If you have any other suggestions or questions when using it I'd be very keen to hear them, Thanks again

    I really liked the little demo on your home page even though I'm pretty dead inside and find a few of the quips it replied with a little twee (I want to uninstall Slack everytime it tells me to get more sleep...). One little thing that stalled me as I was signing up to have a go though was the link to your terms of service was broken. Not sure if anyone else has had that but it did stop me from signing up as I just wanted to see what you'd do with my email address. Very interested to have a play around with it though. Well done.
