procreate stuff

Mostly WIP's as I've been jumping back and forth multiple drawings. I think I'm getting the hang of coloring on procreate as well.


Working primarily on iPad Pro in recent weeks have made me realize how I missed the 1 to 1 drawing experience. Wacom tablet on PC feels just abysmal after switching. Quite strange that I initially didn't completely enjoy the iPad experience when I first bought it this January. It could be the iOS update or Procreate update since I distinctly remember feeling drawing on the iPad clunky and unpleasant. No matter, it's now superb and I can't stand drawing on a regular tablet.

Also it's given me quite a bit of boost on my ability to plan and sketch. I've always felt that I had good eyes for catching what works and what doesn't. But that ability couldn't always be used at full capacity on PC and Photoshop due to how its UI functions. Zooming in and out on PC felt more like teleporting in and out to different zoom levels which lead to disconnection in the mental image of the piece. With iPad zooming is seamless and smooth, helping my brain retaining the image consistently, which ultimately helps seeing what's right or wrong with the art I'm doing.

Anyways, enough of sucking Job's digestive tracts. iPad Pro and Apple Pencil is good and I fully recommend it. I am definitely switching to iPad for all my future works full time and I'm gonna use my PC for primary functions iOS can't really do.

Aaaand naturally since procreate records all drawings done on it automatically, stuff you see will go on youtube once they are finished.




This one I just got a craving to draw it one night and started working on it. It's one of those 'artist girl in a room' piece.


Continuation from that nintendo girl piece. I like the direction so far. I will eventually color and finish it.



This one's redraw of that riot police girl. Some of the major problems of the previous version was that the perspective was fucked and I had trouble with the character anatomy. The recent anatomy study I did seem to have greatly helped my overall art quality. I was able to push perspective here for more dynamic pose. Gonna finish this one too.


And few random sketches and paints below.





That is all.
