Digital calligraphy
« on: January 20, 2018, 03:32:38 AM »
It's quiet around here, so I thought I'd post something.

Does anybody else use a tablet for calligraphy practice? If so, what apps do you use?

I use Calligraphy Art for IOS on an iPad Air 2. I've been thinking of upgrading to an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, but its a little too pricey.

I do not, but edit later in Photoshop for good pieces. How do you like practicing on a tablet? I bet the tactile feel is completely different, does it throw you off or help you learn better because it is different?

The tactile feel is not so much different as it is absent altogether  :D

That said, I find switching between tablet and pen-and-paper to be fairly easy. The tablet works well for maintaining muscle memory, and also (because I can undo and erase) developing design ideas I guess you could call it rapid prototyping  ;) .
