All of my recent practice drawing from photos with the iPad has paid off. I finally was able to bring the iPad to life drawing today and could use it in the live session. The time constraints made it tricky to feel comfortable and using it while my colleagues were using traditional media felt a bit strange but it all worked out. When I’ve used it on my own without time limitations, I could experiment and explore the Procreate tools and interface. In the live session I felt a bit nervous, constrained and self-conscious. But for the first live effort with the iPad, I felt pretty good about the overall results.
All of the drawings started out with the “Willow Charcoal” brush creating a loose overall shape of the pose. Then the “6B Pencil” brush was used for line work. Finally a combination of both tools were used to add additional color and tone until complete.
