My First Sketch with Apple Pencil & Procreate

February 24, 2017

A couple weeks ago I was finally introduced to the new and revolutionary Apple Pencil.

I was surprised as soon as I arrived in LA Harlan said, “You gotta try this”. He quickly booted up Procreate, flashed out the Apple Pencil and drew a few lines showing me what it could do. To say the least, I was mystified.


I scribbled a few things, to find myway around and to getting the hang of gliding the Pencil on the iPad. The response between the two is almost immediate and the process felt somewhat similar to the way I sketch. However the surface of the iPad is not the same as sketching on paper. Very slippery, I had to make an effort to control what I intended to draw. I soon found my bearings and started to explore the way to hold and navigate the pencil, and of course to understand the different types of lines Procreate can produce. Quite revolutionary technology to a Novice like myself. Anyhow I though I would just stick to simple sketching, instead of trying to explore Procreate’s other numerous capabilities. I love it…!
