Before anyone gets carried away, I know mobile tablets aren't the same as pen tablets. I have an intuos 4 at home. But with my phone broken and my laptop no longer mobile, I was looking into android tablets for drawing and shows.
Have any of you bought a tablet for drawing on the go? Whats the best option for pixel accuracy and performance?
Hi, this is my first post on /ic/ so I hope I'm doing it correctly. I bought an android tablet recently (Galaxy Tab A) for several purposes, but mainly art. I haven't bought any others, but I heard the Note 12.2 is good for art as well. Definitely get one with an S-Pen, you'll want the pen pressure.
I am very happy with my purchase. I have a Cintiq Companion and while it's more fully-featured, this is much more convenient to bring around and easier to hold up while painting in the open. Also, as android apps are based around the touchscreen, you won't have to use a keyboard, unlike the cintiq companion, which has shortcut keys but Photoshop isn't built around a touchscreen, so either way the workflow is slower.
I have used a bunch of programs, including sketchbook pro, infinite painter, layerpaint, serious paint, artrage and clover paint, among others. The one I found to be the best is Clover Paint. This is due to it's amazing amount of customization options. You can map pretty much anything to any button, and you can create and edit your brushes to a higher degree than any other android art program. (It has a lot of extra stuff, for example adding perlin noise to a brush to make sure each one is different). Unfortunately, it has the steepest learning curve and the UI is butt-ugly.
Artrage and sketchbook pro are quite similar to their desktop versions (of course, they're less sophisticated) but ArtRage lags a lot, so I can't recommend it unless you paint slow. Sketchbook Pro is nice, but it feels lacking in brushes and the workflow isn't as quick as Clover Paint. If you want extreme speed in brushes, you can get LayerPaint, but it's quite barebones.
By the way, if you're into animation, I recommend RoughAnimation and if you're into pixel art I recommend Pixly.
I hope this helps! Attached is a picture I painted in Clover Paint and touched up in a few seconds in Photoshop. By the way, does anyone know of any android painting communities?
Ah, sorry, I would like to correct something I wrote. I said the workflow with the Cintiq Companion is slower, but that's not true. I just meant that without a keyboard, the cintiq companion gets much, much more cumbersome to use, at least for me.
>>2343780 Thank you so much for your detailed post. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou.
I'm researching the tabA now. It seems the tab2 is the newer model but may not include the same pen features as the artist model. Trying to find out how many levels of pressure it detects as well, I've heard 1000ish is fair
I started to do traditional art, and want to get pictures on my computer and also post the art online in a portfolio.
I assume the best way to do this is scan the pictures, but can anyone recommend a good scanner for this? Never used a scanner and have no idea what are good brands that don't fuck up how the drawing looks when it gets scanned (e.g. washed out colors, etc...).
If it matters, money is no issue, but I don't need an industrial device that costs me 2000 dollars obviously... Something high-end for home use is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Personally I would reccomend an Epson all in one printer. The ink a little bit pricer and it comes in cmyk cratridges. And you'll have to not forget to print something now and then to avoid the ink from clogging.
But with the right paper they can make some very nice prints. If your biggest concern is scanning then i dont think it makes much of a difference how expensivr you get. I mean you dont want a rubbish scanner but from my experience most scanners are the same and you'll almost always have to photoshop, gimp, whatever and have to touch your scans for cleanup,...

I'll join, will share brainstorm school foundation course files, as those are great examples an theory (not videos) we should make a rank system inside the group, with a fixed % of participants to promote to next rank weekly, because to mix different skill levels won't help anyone giving a fixed amount of feedback to other participants should be mandatory
Currently watching the masterfully made BBC doc the power of art, makes me want to post some great and classic works of the greats. Please feel free to post any of your favorite works of renaissance or post renaissance works of art!
I made that picture a while ago, I'm surprised someone saved it. I believe there is some truth to it. Did you save it from here or from elsewhere? I'd like to know how far it may have spread if at all.
So I'm not much for being any kind of visual artist, so I asked a buddy of mine to draw me a cartoon for an album I'm working on. I have absolutely no idea how I should go about editing it or even attempting to color it. Any suggestions/help?
Hey /ic/, I'm a senior in college right now currently living in Canada and seeking an art college not teaching shitty modern art, but technique, etc. Does anyone know if there are any art schools in Canada worth it here? If not, any ateliers? Is it even worth it to spend the money to go to one? If you've went to one, what were you experiences?
>>2343278 What type of art do you want to create? Unfortunately there's not much in Canada, but your goals/interests will help decide where you attend.
I did Sheridan for illustration but left because it wasn't teaching technique and stuff and was very conceptual and editorial. Their animation program is okay, it's not as good as the reputation is but is better than other options in Canada.
For ateliers, there's the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto, but to be honest it's one of those places... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
An important thing to note is that literally no one will ever ask to see your art degree, so unless you like being in debt for no reason, ateliers are a good option, or even community colleges can be pretty good quality.
And there's always self teaching obviously. You need to build up a lot of willpower and the ability to critique your own work, but you can get very good on your own with the amount of resources on the internet.
