Thank you! Yes, your point on “tactile happiness” is so true. I don’t feel “connected” to the art like I do when I see ink flowing from a marker or paint coming off the brush. Using it doesn’t require patience. I guess it’s similar to using film vs. digital cameras. I can kind of get the same look, but learning through physical mistakes helps me along faster.Well, I think it looks fantastic! Very similar to what an ink portrait would look like, I believe. But yeah, it's digital art, so while the end result is definitely nice, it might not square with that tactile happiness you may get using different medium during your creation.
Sure would be easier to pack along for a trip.
I did a self-portrait using procreate for the iPad. I’m not sure how I feel. It’s faster, and easier, to create on the iPad, but it’s a different satisfaction compared to using actual pen, paper, paint, etc. but, it’s so much easier and faster. And, you can undo!

I have heard a lot about that app. Haven’t tried it yet. I think I need to stop jumping around from one thing to another. I’ll blame it on pandemic boredom syndrome. I have yet to finish/master anything lol.
Not finishing/mastering anything yet.. jeez, do I hear that. If you figure out how, please let me know, too.
Definitely give the app a try. Since you’re used to using a digital pen, you’ll probably take to it faster than those that don’t. At least that’s how I felt, since I have a Wacom board for photo editing. The app itself took me a bit to get used to, but I’m finally starting to find my groove.
I love that I can add layers AFTER. So often I forget to do that upfront. I also love that I can add layers for literally everything, because OCD. So, for my self-portrait, I had a layer for my hair, my eyes, my nose, my mouth, etc. Then, I could work on them all independently without fear of messing up any of the other ones. Definitely helpful. I want to start looking into other brushes, and possibly creating my own. But, that’ll come with time.
