The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a beautiful 3G tablet. Along with the included S-Pen (stylus), it makes for an interesting device for some creative work. The last time I held a paint brush was back in Architecture school, I believe. Last night, I had some creative juice flowing and thought to see how much touch I had lost in sketching and painting.
Here was what I came up with – two rough sketches:
The second one is a face that you should know very well – Iron Man.
Clearly, I’ve become quite rusty. But I should be able to do more of this in my spare time. Perhaps a morning at the beach. Perhaps sunset on a hill. Perhaps Spiderman fighting off the Green Goblin. Whatever, but from time to time, I shall sit down and sketch some more. It should even be more fun starting a running face off with my son who has taken after me in these things.
What app did I use? Autodesk SketchBook Pro for Galaxy. While not pre-installed on the Note Pro, there is an icon that triggers installation. It is just about 12 MB in size. I have only explored it a little bit, but I see that it is an app I will enjoy using. The S-Pen is comfortable in the hand in use and a joy to use for both sketching and painting.
I had fun doing this and will certainly do it again.
