It’s been a long time since my last post. My life has taken some unexpected turns, but my love for sketching remains intact. From now on I intend to post much more regularly, upload more videos to my YouTube channel and much more. I am now living in north Texas, so I’ll be sketching a lot on location as I get to know my new surroundings.
Lately I have been using my iPad a lot for work so I’ve been getting much more comfortable with it, to the point I have been using it a lot for sketching on location. Digital sketching has its challenges, but I’ve gotten to appreciate its numerous advantages.
I can take it anywhere, even to museums where ink or watercolors are not allowed. I can have all the colors that I want. Digital graphite does not smudge and does not need sharpening. I have unlimited pencils, pens, markers, brushes at the top of my finger. And I don’t have to scan afterwards to share online.
For sketching on location I use an app called Tayasui Sketches Pro. Very simple but pretty impressive. The pens, pencils and the watercolor brushes work really good. I have really enjoyed using the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil with this app for sketching on the go. Here are some of my sketches with it.
