Alice in the sun

I knew I had to draw this one quickly. The afternoon sun would soon disappear and it was time for Alice to have a walk. I grabbed my iPad, created a new canvas, chose a 6B pencil and drew in black. Then I created a new layer under the first one, and added the greys. Working on one layer for the line and a separate one for the shading is really useful if you need to make corrections — Alice’s paws that twitch in anticipation of a walk, the changing angles of the shadows — but you just have to remember which layer you are working on. The other wonderful thing about the iPad: no scanning or photographing of the image. Alice appreciates that too at walk time.

    When working on the iPad, do you use Illustrator or another app?

    Do you have any demos of procreate on the ipad? I have no idea what it is.

    I can feel the warmth from the sun that Alice seems to be enjoying! Hope she enjoyed her walk, too.

    Harrley was enjoying a sunny spot today too, but I only took a photo.

    Yes remembering which layer you on is tough

    I’ve never drawn using an iPad, mostly because I don’t have an iPad, but is it easy to master? I’m thinking of getting a used one to try.
