Play in the snow!
We have no “weather” in San Diego outside of sunny, and slightly less sunny. So To do a painting of a robot having fun in ths snow, is all I would imagine it would be!
Those of you that follow me, may remember I purchased a (short lived) Surface Pro 2 to see if I could use it as my mobile creative production machine. Although I could see the potential, it runs Photoshop, stylus, pressure sensitivity, I felt the money required to buy one, was just way to high for the pitfalls. So after a day of use, I returned it and went back to the drawing board and bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 (a mouthful!). I picked up the 32GB version, and for good measure I got the Wacom Bamboo Feel.
Now, of course there are limitations to Androids creative apps, I own Sketchbook Pro and like it, but felt it was too different from Photoshop so I searched on.
I did some more digging and came across a program called Artflow. I downloaded the free version and quickly started tinkering, the UI is pretty solid, with some quirks (eye dropper being nested two clicks deep), no lasso tool (that I have found yet), the positives are layers, exporting as a PSD, exporting JPG and creating a higher resolution file at 4096x4096. So after a quick drawing, I bought the full version for $6.99 to unlock some brushes and features.
This is the first drawing I did on the tablet, and I hope to do a lot more and get better! I am pretty happy so far. Stay tuned for more updates!
