A photo of the tools I use to give a better idea of what I'm shouting at when the drawing doesn't go right. In no particular order:

  • Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch (needs a clean) - Oldskool Bamboo back when they were still tablets and not iPad styli. Disable the touch function unless you like headaches. Was an upgrade from the even older Graphire 3 tablet from way back yonder. Photoshop was and still is the go to program - that default circular brush, too good.
  • Wacom Intuos (not pictured, it's lying around somewhere) - I can't even remember which generation it was, but it was a pretty bad purchase. The size of the tablet made it unwieldy both in terms of desk space and for how I was used to drawing digitally by that point.
  • iPad Mini 2, Adonit Jot Touch 4 - The newest shinies and what prompted this entire post really. Far, far cheaper than a Cintiq and portable to boot. The accuracy and pressure sensitivity of the Jot has been pretty impressive so far. Also Procreate may just be the best thing ever.
