Sketching in the Digital Age
When my boyfriend first told me he was getting a tablet, I thought he meant a Wacom Bamboo tablet, which you use for sketching digitally. That wasn’t what he meant, but I have found that I can use it to make digital sketches, as long as I don’t mind using my finger as my writing instrument. (He did buy a stylus, but it got eaten by a couch. And he got a Bamboo tablet for Christmas, though I haven’t tried it yet.) Sketching via iPad doesn’t have the flexibility of sketching on paper, mostly in terms of being able to layer colors and blend, but it’s fun to play!
And a bonus: One problem that I encounter with filming videos for my online classes and youtube channel is light: I have a huge studio with giant windows and plenty of light, but since I live in New England, pretty much the land of darkness, I have to film anything before about 3 pm or the lighting just isn’t right. With the ipad though, I suspect I can film anytime I want! Score!
