Procreate and the Apple Pencil

I recently upgraded my iPad and treated myself to the Pro with the Apple Pencil. I have never tried doing any sort of digital art but on the recommendation of another artist friend, I thought I’d try. So much fun! The app I bought for drawing is called Procreate and it lets you simulate a whole bunch of media: painting with different brushes, drawing with a range of pencils and ink, calligraphy, and technical pencils, pastels, charcoal and crayon even. If any of you has the iPad Pro and pencil, give this program a try. It’s 9.99 in the App Store and worth every penny. I will not be hanging up my sketchbook or canvases any time soon but this is a really fun alternative. Here is my first digital drawing – a tree!
