    Hi. I recently switched to the ipad pro too. You might want to give Clip Studio Paint a try. It is VERY complete and in some aspects (I think) superior to Photoshop. Plus it can open and save in .psd

    I use a Cintiq at school and I tested the iPad Pro, but I ended up buying a Surface Pro 4
    I love it! It's an actual laptop so I can use the full Adobe Suite, but it is still portable enough that I can bring it anywhere
    I'm an animator and it's doing great, I'm currently doing my end of the school year film on it
    I definitely recommand it to anyone that like using heavy software but don't want a huge (and crazy expensive) screen tablet

    I've heard there's a problem with file management with iPads, and a person is forced to use Internet to transfer files. If this is true, could a person use a Bluetooth USB drive to store the files from the iPad?

    Hola Fran, por las razones que presentas, eso de poder llevarte tu studio para cualquier lugar para trabajar y la movilidad, creo que deberias mirar las microsoft surface. Por el precio de un Ipadpro obtienes un pc completo full specs y puedes usar photoshop, y en la parte del uso es igual de transportable que un ipad solo que con hardware y software de verdad.

    I bought a Cintiq a year ago and I know that frustration… The cables all over the desk, not being able to carry it wherever you go etc. I've been working with photoshop for ages and that was my first reason to get a Cintiq. Don't get me wrong, I love it but sometimes just the thought of having to connect all of the things and create some space on my desk to start using it's enough for not doing it (yes…kinda lazy…)

    I love Wacom Cintiq 27''! It's a huge, massive, heavy beast XD
    I've seen one of them once at a local show/fair. Really gigantic D:

    A more practical solution, but a bigger investment, should be the next generation of this kind of tools. Speaking of Wacom products, there are the old Wacom Companion (discontinued but still on second hand markets) and the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro.
    They're stand alone pen computers, like Cintiq but without being forced to connect it to a pc as a monitor 😀

    I know there are others trying to develop and sell something similar, first of all Microsoft with the Surface Pro series.

    Lovely illustrations in there!! Glad I found this video. I’ve owned 4 Cintiq’s over the years, and it has been essential to my work as a 2D animator. But I find the iPad Pro being a much lovelier product overall. I connect to it. The (bigger) Cintiq is more like a work station. For drawings I much prefer the iPad Pro. But for animation and video, the size of the bigger Cintiqs, and computer programs still have the advantage in my opinion.
    Looking forward to your next video!

    Gonna talk a bit about my Cintiq-Experience so far. (I don't own one, but the place iam working at does, so I use it daily)

    I've been doing digital art for aprox 5 years, study design at the moment, and make an internship at a film company. I personally only have a Intuos 5m, it the first and only tablet I own. I've used Photoshop since the beginning, and do so to this day. I love the way you can customize your workspace, and get to everything by shortcuts, of course iam also using the keyboard a lot. The Problem I've experience with "smaller" tablets (smaller than like Din A4 in active area) is following:

    I theory you only ever train your drawing arm on a small space => for the intups 5M thats aproximately Din A5, which is not very big. Of course you can zoom in BUT you still never draw very "big" in the real world. This has a major flaw! Since you're pretty much forced to zoom in all the time for more detailed work, especially on lineart, you are loosing the whole image out of sight, and you are also not drawing a connected piece of art, but only little junks of it part by part. Let me get this straight: You are not training your muscle memory the same, as if your were to draw on a piece of paper, and have to draw pretty much "in one zoom setting" all the time. That is biggest problem for me drawing on a small tablet, where you have to zoom in. (Same applied for Small Cintiq pretty much. The one big advantage of a cintiq should be a "As-close-As-Drawing-on-Paper- Experience" as possible. With a small cintiq it is necessary to zoom in all the time still, if your working on a "virtual" big canvas.

    So since I've been drawing life figure drawing on big sized paper, like 50×70, doing big strokes out of the arm (alway draw out of the arm, even with small detail) I found that a small tablet is not an enjoyable experience anymore.

    At Work we use a few year old Cintiq 22HD, the "budget" big one, so to say. It does not have the best stand, and at first I thought, my arm would die on me, drawing at a 45°Angle all the time, and holding it up, BUT actually i got used to it fairly fast, and I never drew that nice ellipses and shapes to base my drawings on. At the Moment I have to draw a lot of perspective stuff and it helps tremendos to have a big canvas to draw on, and even doh, that the tablet has parralax, you train a lot how to do fast strokes with your full arm, that will help with traditional drawing aswell. On the other hand drawing on a small tablet with zoom all the time, will not help too much with traditional drawing. The only thing it did for me was, to get quite fast at drawing, due to the fact, that that wacom generation generates wobbly lines when doing a slow stroke, and that just looks bad. So I got quite fast. But I got way better since I use this 22HD at work, and It also makes the process faster, due to more intuitive "hand-eye-coordination".

    I know some people that have quite messy sketches. Yea right, thats a bad habit from drawing with the Computer to early, and having all the ways of "doing another layer", but it will never be time efficient. There are also people, that i know, that have a Cintiq 24HD and 90percent of the drawing-process happens just in the middle 15% and they move the canvas all the time. Dont do that. Rather imagine it was a piece of paper, and draw on the whole canvas.

    Well thats a long story for me, but I hope it got the point across for me. I will most likely purchase a cintiq as soon as possible, and as soon as I know it does perform properly with my computer, due to its age. If you only want to colour and paint a tablet without monitor at a reasonable size such as the cintiq M is quite good, and fun especially if you do your sketches traditionally first and scan them in. Else linearts can be a bit of a pain. But if you want to do detailed drawing and also practise your drawing skill a cintiq 24 oder at least a big Intuos L is necessary.

    Hope this kindoff helps for those that struggle with that topic.

I just want something superportable and EASY!!! could this PROCREATE app with the ipad fit better for someone like me?

    If you haven't, you should try Adobe Photoshop Sketch! The pencil tool is AMAZING and it has Kyle Webster's brushes integrated. Also, if you do end up needing to use the desktop version of Photoshop, you can tap a button and it will send a full layered PSD to your laptop! (It even automatically opens Photoshop… like magic!)
    Lmk if you have any questions. I work with the mobile apps at Adobe very closely and I'd love to help!

    There's an app similar to Photoshop called Clip Studio Paint. It's subscription-based for the iPad, maybe 5 bucks a month, I think. I use it on a laptop, and it's the closest thing I've found to Photoshop. It's like 50 or 100 bucks to buy for a computer. It's a great program, and a really solid alternative to Photoshop, in my opinion. Thanks for all the great videos!

    Hola Fran!, soy ilustrador chileno también =) me encantó el video y coincido con tus opiniones. Si bien no tengo el ipad, mis alumnos me lo han pasado varias veces y me encantó!. En la casa tengo una Cintiq 21UX y una intuos 4 grande, tuve la 12wx, , y muchos otros modelos antes empezando con la graphire el año 2007. Creo que Apple le apuntó al diseño del ipencil muy bien, especialmente en la punta, amo esa punta sencilla triangular y delgada. con la cintiq el borde que sostiene la punta impide que puedas usar el stylus bien en ángulos pronunciados, y tapa más lo que dibujas, no así el ipencil. lamentablemente no es recargado por inducción E.M. como los de wacom, pero no dudo que se pondrán al día. Ahora como dispositivo móvil uso un Samsung Ativ 700t, que tiene un sensor wacom y uso un lápiz compatible con la Cintiq 18, y me funcionan de lo más bien en Photoshop y Manga Studio. Pero estoy muy tentado de actualizarme, el Procreate viene muy pre-configurado y se agradece. Si bien en Photoshop y MS puedes hacer pinceles más sofisticados, el Procreate lo hace más directo, más sencillo. Me tinca mucho como herramienta de dibujo diario. Pero tal como tu, creo que no es para uso más intenso.

    You are comparing it to the 12" Cintiq from quite a few years ago here, which came with a bit more cable spaghetti than the more recent ones. 🙂

    Though I do understand where you're coming from. I have the Cintiq 13HD and a ThinkPad Yoga TabletPC, with a wacom pen. The Cintiq is more accurate, has tilt support (that I don't really use) and dual buttons on the pen, but I still rarely use it. But, like with the iPad, convenience trumps it. If I had a permanent drawing desk, I might consider getting something like a 24" Cintiq, but for now I use my ThinkPad on the kitchen table, couch or wherever I am.

    B.t.w. you might also want to try out Clip Studio Paint, it's a PC/Mac software, that recently got released on the iPad, designed mainly for illustration and comics.

    I have both setups. To be honest 70-90% of all my illustrations are done on my iPad Pro. The only time I use my Cintiq desktop set up is spending long hours on finishing projects. I moved on from PS between Affinity photo and ClipStudio Paint. Procreate is a great app and it’s limitations are based on the users needs, since I’m a former PS user Clip Studio Paint meets them. In procreate defense it forces the user to do more, with less, to re-learn a way of doing something.
    Astropad is worked great for me, via usb and Luna fusion is only going to make it better. The grainy lag affect varies on your setup, that’s mainly the reason for the mixed reviews. The heavier the illustration, with PS the worse it gets. Also Adobe intentionally makes the product to work better on invidia graphic cards. Apple uses amd/ati, however affinity works great with no issues, but now there is an app for the iPad Pro, so I no longer need astropad at all.
    So use your iPad Pro and explore other options from PS, as a user of that platform for over 20 years, the transition took time, but I don’t miss it.

    The difference its IPAD have a restriction, 4gb ram in the better IPAD, thats turn in small resolution and layers. For example for 5000px in procreate you only have 17 layers available. About procreate vs photoshop, photoshop its not a painting program, if you want a photo editing APP you have affinity photo that its stunning. Procreate its a painting app just like corel painter or sketchbook available for 10 dollars, so its perfect for me I dont have planned pay 1.000 dollars anymore for photoshop or other program, specially with affinity photo and affinity design out there, that its more powerfull than adobe programs.

    you can use the citiq with any application that allows it. adobe illustrator,photoshop,after effects ect. we carry ours everywhere. we have one for home the 27inch and one for travel the 13inch. also,the wacom has different nibs for the pen that gives you a different feel regarding the friction/feel of the pen on the surface of the tablet. at the end of the day,it's all about available workspace, portability as well as compatibility

    I'd like to throw in the option of a Cintiq Companion Hybrid! Mine runs android until it is plugged into my computer, at which point it becomes a display drawing tablet. So, you can use some pretty decent apps with it (I used it that way until I bought my new computer because my old one didn't have an HDMI port). It is still heavy, but it was JUST the tablet and wireless unless you were charging it. So you have the best of both worlds. Very portable. I feel like there might be one that runs Windows, but I don't know if I just imagined that or if it was real.

    Hello everybody (hope someone sees and can help) ^^
    I need some advice. I have a Wacom drawing tablet, but have not have the patience to learn properly to draw digitally with it. As my computer is slowly dying, I consider buying an iPad pro 12.9" (due to portability, ability to take notes and as a transition into digital art) – would it be a good idea? I have heard, that for some it is easier to learn to draw digitally if the drawing area and screen are the same…? Or do I just need to force myself to pick up the Wacom again?

    Procreate IS very limited, it's great for sketches and quick illustrations but for more professional work I'd use Medibang Paint. It has so many more options, feels like you can have a higher DPI, it's all around great for high maintenance/professional stuff. Procreate is also great for professional work, but I just like how medibang feels. Plus, the iPad Pro has a great battery life, portability is great, apple pencil feels great (and a matte screen protector and pen grip make sit feel natural). I'm super happy with my purchase.

    Tengo una intuos pro m que compré hace unos años porque los ipad costaban casi el doble y la verdad es que el dibujar en una parte y ver el dibujo en otra le quita un poco de diversión, además que con el ipad te ahorras una curva de aprendizaje tremenda. Por eso concuerdo contigo, si eres un ilustrador que no pretende fotorealismo ni nada por el estilo, creo que el ipad es una buena opcion, mucho más portable y más versatil.

    The only way I’d get a 13 HD, is if I bought it 10th hand. Honestly though, I really want one. I think that everyone should start on the small Wacom tablets first, because personally I got used to drawing without looking down and it helped me a lot with back pains and neck pains because I’m not constantly looking down. I like using it WAY more than my iPad, I only use the iPad when I’m trying to do a quick digital prompt or something.

    I always felt if I ever do digital, these Wacom tablets are just not good enough. Just now, with the new Generation of iPad Pros I finally got my first 11". Wacom was very unaffordable for me and not versatile of portable enough to be worth saving up. The about 1500€ for an iPad Pro I can now comfortably handle and I feel like I don't have to compromise any more. I never wanted to and now I don't have to. I can read on it (as it's very portable), write on it in college, draw on it in my free time. It's just great all around.

    Comparing a multi-purpose Tablet with a digital drawing Cintiq seems a bit biased. Art wise the Cintiq would work better because it was MADE specifically for art- while the Ipad can be used for hundreds of other things. Personally, I feel like if you plan to buy an Ipad just for art, getting an art tablet would be better. But if you need a tablet in general and plan to use it for other reasons an Ipad would work great for you.

    (also you mentioned the cintiq is better because you can use photoshop? Adobe offers photoshop on Ios devices as well…)

    I'd consider getting an iPad since my workload isn't usually heavy as I don't make prints, and I don't work with thousand pixel canvases at 600 dpi files that will have the machine chugging, but I'm still worried about the machines lifespan. I hear iPads tend to slow down after 2 to 3 years of usage, and while it works better and has less hardware issues than a Cintiq, $800 is still a lot of money to invest (though, I guess it beats $2,500 for a Cintiq 24 Pro, as the HD models from 2012 still harbor the resolution and parallax issues due to the technological limitations at the time.)

    I was 16 when I got my cintiq 13HD, I thought I’d done my research by clearly not enough, I HATE it, my parents bought it for me and I have felt so so bad every since for all that money wasted on honestly, the most useless piece of electronics I’ve ever used 😱
    In about four or five years of owning it I’ve literally only had the opportunity to use it twice without issues, it takes literally hours to set up every time and constant trouble shooting, this is even after I’ve had to have parts refunded and replaced from them.
    After spending three hours trying to set it up last week and having it simply not work, no matter what I did, and finding no solutions online, I’ve finally decided to sell it. No reason hanging onto it and not using it.
    Hoping I can buy an iPad Pro or similar in the future, it sounds so much better

    What storage option did you choose for your iPad I’m not too sure which GB is the ideal size for doing artwork??

    You are so true in nature! Really loved the review. It was like a documentary and feels like you were not scripting for it earlier. Though for the same reason you told same few things repeatedly which made the review longer. Still enjoyed it. Take care 😘

    Hi Fran, I love your videos so much!
    I was just wondering what your go-to brush setting for your favourite brush is.
    I am currently using 6B pencil and I feel like it is too dull for me to draw.

    You Can not compare the iPad to your relique cintiq

    This video actually helped me a lot in deciding. I'm in a similar situation. I previously used Wacom tablets for years and abandoned them to go back to traditional art. Recently, I've been considering reintroducing digital for storyboarding. While I do have a laptop also, I don't really want to be at a desk all day nor tethered to a wall outlet and I'm no longer interested in drawing tablets since I wanted to see the art under my hands. I guess I was leaning in that direction already but seeing this helped me be convinced that the iPad can do what I need. Thanks.

    Probably cuz CINTIQ's are not for MOVING and such and just for putting it on desk and working on it all the time, If you want something more mobile there are WACOM mobile studio's for that

    Using a very old cintiq with a shitty computer vs a overpriced (build in) tablet. Applefanboy much huh? Dislike
