Should I buy an iPad for art? I want to draw at work during down time, as well as without a PC. Is there any better alternative?
12 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Yes Samsung tablets. They have Krita and Wacom tech. Procreate is overrated as hell.
>but I haven't heard of any that match the iPad's quality.
Xp pen magic drawing pad, hiion kamvas studio 16, and wacom mobilestudio all shit on the iPad.
not op but what ipad do i even buy? i definitely want one that supports the gen 2 pencil
Get a pro. According to google 3rd gen is the oldest pro model that supports the gen 2 pencil. Buy the best model you can afford for better cpu, don't worry too much about storage space (you can just encrypt you chit and put it on cloud storage). I bought new but definitely look at the used market.
>you chit
your shit*
Also make sure you get a 12.9. The other one would feel too small to draw on imo

Got back to doing figures again after not drawing for a while, there are a lot of things I need to work on (e.g. not losing the energy of the pose, nailing down proportions and overall not making them look like ass).
Need to get around to actually doing the Steve huston figure drawing course stuff and then consistently doing studies after that,

Tried doing some more figures and, when trying to do reference drawings I keep fucking the relationship between the ribs and pelvis. Thinking about it the problem was a mix between messing up the lines used to measure the body (The head to pelvis is supposed to be 3 heads tall, but I make it 2-2 and a half for some reason), making the size of the pelvis way too small (pelvis is supposed to be 1 head tallish but I made it half a head), and lastly, while attempting to lay down the lines for both the pelvis I kept confusing myself about if the line is supposed to be where the bottom of the pelvis, the longest part of the pelvis or the top of pelvis.
will make sure to do some more figures.

Advice frog here (I'm a gigachad artist who's worked professionally, some of my pieces have had 50k+ likes on twitter)

No, drawing more isn't gonna make you a better artist. Rote drawing is the absolute worst form of learning. It teaches you how to freehand curves and straight lines, but past that it doesn't really teach you anything.

10 minutes of quality observation and studying is worth more than a lifetime of rote drawing.

For example: how many hours of drawing are you gonna learn the main muscle groups that goes from shoulderblade to arms (one of the most important places of anatomy to learn)? Some people have drawn their *entire lives* and never learn this. However, 5 minutes spent reading Uldin Zari's Anatomy for Sculptures and you gain this knowledge.

Sure, does practice matter? Yes. But guided practice and being mindful of what exactly you're trying to achieve with this practice is often the most overlooked skill in art education.

99% of artists should just draw more.
There are a few people who have been drawing ungodly amounts every day for years and didn't improve, these are outliers. Everyone else should be drawing more often while employing different techniques.

Even if you had a fool proof way to get better, you still have to DRAW to make use of it. Thats what JUST DRAW means. Draw first, then find your specific answer to your specific problems, then keep drawing. There is no way to get better that does not involve drawing.
We should change it "Just Draw Better". Draw something, think about whats wrong, and draw again better.
not as catchy
and it would filter retards anyway, so I'll stick to 'just draw'
op is absolutely right. Anyone that has actual talent will tell you this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dqwTjIS0l4

of course it doesn't hurt to do some preliminary sketches etc
hou a fagggot
