Time Lapse Drawing with the iPhone 7 Plus using 3D Touch

So yesterday I had a new test. 

3D Touch

So Apple has this feature that in their iPhones since the iPhone 6S. That feature is called 3D Touch.

Won’t go into too much details but, it allows you to apply pressure to the screen with your finger and the screen can register how much pressure you are applying. 

Autodesk Sketchbook

So with Autodesk sketchbook app for the iPhone you can apply pressure with your finger and control the stroke size. 

This was such a cool feature that I found. I don’t know how this will pan out for everyday drawing but just trying this out was really fun.

Check out my video trying out the app with only my finger and utilizing the 3D Touch feature in the iPhone 7 Plus.

Background struggle

staring4

I hate to admit it but, backgrounds are a major weakness of mine  i always put them off so much.

So as a task i will begin to work on better backgrounds  i believe with better backgrounds will come with better products for my store.

Worst case scenario i could always find someone I could collab with.

So stay tuned and hope i can conquer backgrounds

Art Work Station

My workbench.

Before I have gone through several laptops and galaxy note tablets trying to get the perfect workstation.

2013

In 2013 I found the best working station for my amount of money.

So I grabbed a surface pro. Yeah, the very first one from 2013. It had been holding up well for photoshop tasks and processing animations.

HDD

Although there are some limitations.

Hard drive space is lacking on the 64gb. I have only 4 adobe suite products installed and auto desk sketchbook.

To compensate for the lack of storage I save all files on a 64gb SD card.

Cloud storage through adobe Creative Cloud also helps keep all of your work backed up and accessible through all of your devices. You could use any cloud service for that like google drive or Dropbox. I use them all.
Performance

Still performs like a beast.

Basic operations re performed easily.

The CPU loads up so fast!

Even till this day the load times are very good. I can open an application in seconds thanks to the solid state drive.

OVERALL

Great device for simple tasks. Great for basic drawing and painting applications. Adobe flash doesn’t hold get held back because of it.

When you get into intense layering in photoshop or in illustrator u may run some problems.

I have not done any 3D animation. But I eleven when I did a high powered PC would struggle with processing animations in a reasonable amount of time. So I’m sure the surface would lag.
If your budget is very small go ahead and pick one up. You can find one easily on amazon. Just follow this link:


If your budget is higher. Go ahead and buy the latest and greatest surface pro 4 or the surface book. You won’t have any issues with those. You can find them on the link below.

First stage of my drawing.

I have created the character and the next stage will be blocking in the scenery.

I don’t usually add too much scenery to most of my drawings so this time I’m really going to focus on it.

Pinterest will be one of my best friends for a bit until I finish my project.

This will allow me to increase the quality of my store so that I can sell a better product.

So that will be a big part of this project this time.
