For this quick torso study, used the charcoal brushes in the iPad Procreate app. The Procreate brushes and its customization provide a good simulation of traditional media.
(Thanks to reference photo from nikaross of Friends of Felines Rescue Center, Defiance Ohio). Drew and painted a beautiful Ragdoll cat (“Badu”) on iPad using the Procreate app, Nomad brush and Bamboo pen. I’m starting to settle on the Procreate app among a few painting apps I’ve tried on the iPad2. Its minimalist interface doesn’t distract from the drawing, painting process. I like getting a textured feeling on the canvas with its brushes which can be customized by importing your own textures; it’s an area for more exploration.
