Wherever you go with a smartphone, you go with a camera. Oh yes, you can shoot everything in sight, but really you can’t beat the freedom of sketching to express what you feel about what you’re looking at.
A photo is a record but a drawing is a memory.
You see more intensely when you draw than when you simply snap a photo of a subject.
Sketch on a tablet, phablet or phone and you have a full studio toolbox with you as well as a camera.
Expressive colour makes mood moodier
Most mobile drawing or painting apps include a rainbow palette of colours, literally at your fingertips – without the fag of carrying a paintbox or bundles of crayons.
Notice the variation in thickness of the blue person’s hair.
Is it possible that the new(ish) brush tool in Ideas on the iPad Mini really does have touch sensitivity? The brush did certainly make a thicker stroke the harder I pressed with my finger. (But not when I tried with a stylus.)
I haven’t heard anybody boasting about a wondrous new pressure sensitivity in Adobe Ideas, however.
Maybe it just took me longer to press harder.
Sigh. Still only speed sensitivity for touch tablets then? (Except for Android Galaxy Notes with the S Pen stylus, which really does have Wacom pressure sensitivity, even if only limited.)
