first scribbles in sketchbook pro

Here is the work in progress so far. Some observations:

Sketchbook Pro has some great similarities to the old Fractal Design Painter application, like the hue-value-saturation wheel. There is not a lot of difference between each media option, but it’s fun to play around with different line widths, sharpness of line, and opacity. And this is excellent for a $6 app.

Using my finger to draw/paint on the iPad is fun, but not very exact. I keep wishing it was like drawing on a pressure-sensitive tablet, but nothing except my finger works on the pad… I will keep trying pencil-like objects to see if they work, and practicing.

On the work itself, I first flattened it a bit by drawing outlines in yellow. Not a lot of tonal progression yet… more like tonal spray! Luckily I can keep working this layer or try again with another.
