My new toy is the iPad 2. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of it. It’s a tablet with a touch screen with a billion apps. One of the reasons that I wanted the iPad is because I can draw on the tablet from anywhere and get sketches to my clients with ease. I can do a quick sketch using Sketchbook Pro made by Autodesk, and then email the sketch directly to the client. No more scanning!
I’ve been drawing by hand for years so drawing with a fat finger or a stylus takes some getting used to. Nothing will ever replace drawing by hand on paper, but for the most part it feels pretty natural especially with the stylus. (I’m not a fan of drawing with my finger.)
Here are some photos of my process.
