Since I moved to Paris about about 4 months ago, I haven't had access to a Wacom Cintiq or tablet of some kind to use. I have been wanting to keep up on my hand skills and get some renderings done that I've been putting off. I have been wanting a tablet that I can take with me on my daily commutes for sketching. When I was living in Germany, I tried out the new iPad pro and pencil. I almost bought an iPad Air a year ago when Adobe came out with their Ink & Slide kit, it looked to be almost worth the price. But after trying out a friends setup for a little bit I was left wanting and cramped. So I was really amped to see what iPad pro could do and how it compared to a Wacom. It has an amazing feel to it, and I think Wacom is in trouble. They have been the industry leader for so long and finally Apple is a contender. Fast forward a few months and I finally caved and had my sister bring one over on her trip to visit me. I downloaded every sketching app that was recommended, So I have 7 sketching apps and I have been trying them all. My favorite so far is ProCreate, it costs a mere $6. I'm not gonna go through all the pro's and con's of the device, there's a lot of content out there already on the subject but I will say it goes head to head with a Cintiq and holds its own. Its super light, and its portable! The sensitivity of the pencil is exactly what I was hoping for. I was a little bit intimidated by the thing for about a week because of the learning curve of all the apps. But after working with it for a week, it fits perfectly into my workflow and I don't even need it to run adobe creative suite. There is an app called Duet Display that allows me use the iPad as a second display with a regular lightning cable. So I even have a dual display now and it works flawlessly. I have been able to get caught up on renderings as well as sketch for two hours everyday on my commutes on the train. It may be pricey but its still $1000 less than a cintiq and it doesn't require a mess of cables that need to be drug around. Another app worth mentioning is Astropad. It allows you to connect the iPad to your mac and you can use it as a second display to sketch in photoshop and illustrator. I bought it and used it for a week but decided its not necessary for my needs and got a refund ($20).
