Sketching digitally definitely has some pros and cons. The pencil tool in Paper53 using the Apple pencil creates such a likeness (above) so that it is difficult to tell the type of media.

In the above work, the pen and fine liner tool are also used for details and finer work. This allows for example for cross hatching and line work to feature in certain areas.

In other areas, shading with the digital pencil allows a softer and more subtlety in tone. The sketching still is worked and reworked similar to a drawing on paper.

What do you think?

Currently I have been working with drawing using the ipad pro and the Apple pencil.

The type of control and effects are just soooo different from using just a usual stylus or your finger. A fully charged pencil shades with various tones and is sensitive to pressure too.

The image above is a work in progress – just starting to explore the potential and the tools available. Currently, Paper53 is my desired “paint box”. Check it out here.
