    Yeah, recently I got out my old DS Lite and doodled around with Colors! Man, this really is the way to go...very much like a Cintiq in your pocket. I think I'm going to start using it again.

    I'm dumbfounded that no other portable manufacturer has picked up on built-in pressure sensitivity...even Nintendo never exploited this feature in their own device!

    A couple of weeks ago I was playing around with Colors! on the iPod Touch. At first I didn't like using the accelerometer to control pressure but I think I'm getting the hang of it now.

    Sorry, hadn't checked back here in a while. I'm doing well & keeping busy enough. No, I haven't tried Colors! 3D yet b/c I don't have a 3DS.

    Just one example...
    This thread predates the explosion of cheap tablets.

    Today's tablets don't have pressure sensitive screens so I thought this device was very interesting:

    What they did was put pressure sensitivity in the pen instead. Naturally, software has to be written to understand this. The website has a short list of currently compatible apps which includes a paint program called ProCreate.

    bought at rage for ipad as i know the pc/mac version...it's okay but abit too laggy and zoom only goes up to 800%.

    so...tried out sketchbook express from autodesk as it was free....much better speed and more zoom too!

    so went on to blow £1.49 on the pro version!

    That's cool!

    I'd love to get a tablet, either iPad or Android based, but I'm still waiting for one with real pressure sensitivity. But the pressure sensitive pen described above may get me to buy one sooner if more apps start supporting it.

    In the meantime, my old HP tm2 with the Wacom pressure/touch screen is still working great. I still can't understand why HP would discontinue this wonderful convertible--for me it's been the perfect tablet PC for drawing with. Last month, I found it can even run ZBrush perfectly fine.

    Anyway, I finally got back to drawing Brudders on the tm2 again. Will let you know when I start posting the latest strips.

    Yesterday I did some new doodles using AKSketch (the charcoal sketching program mentioned a few posts back) on my iPod. It might sound odd but this is the first drawing program in which I actually prefer using my finger to draw with. I'll post the doodles when I get a chance.

    Here are a few more ASKetch doodles I did:


    My daughter.


    Not my daughter.


    A cat.

    All drawn with finger on iPod Touch. Surprisingly, this is the first drawing app I've come across in which I prefer using my finger over a stylus. Must be the 'smudging' aspect of drawing with this app.

    having an ipad i got art rage and sketchbook pro for it....and today went ahead and bought pro create..wow...very fast..feels really slick just as you'd expect a desktop app to be like, much faster than art rage for example and can export to jpg, png with alpha and layred psd file - res is 1920 x 1408
