Creating great art with Procreate on an iPad

See how an iPad Pro can be an amazing tool for hobbyist artists as well as creative professionals. Rob Sketcherman, an iPad artist from Hong Kong, will be giving a short presentation and demonstration to showcase the app he uses to create his urban sketches and professional commissions. Join us on Aug 21 to get a glimpse of his processes and take a peek at what an iPad Pro+Procreate can do!

What’s in store for us:

  • An introduction to Rob and his work on the iPad Pro.
  • Why the iPad Pro + Apple Pencil + Procreate make a fantastic mobile digital studio.
  • A quick demo to explain Procreate’s user interface
  • Short demo of how Rob uses Procreate for urban sketching

Regular Features

Apps & Traps – Our essential monthly feature on interesting new products and services for iOS and OS X, brought to you by Dave Whitby.

appleSTEMs – Warren James presents interesting Apple science, technology, engineering, and math software. (On hiatus, while Warren’s free time is on hiatus…)

appleCore – Everyone says that iOS and macOS are intuitive and easy to use. If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Although iOS and macOS are easy to use after you’ve learned how to use them, actually learning to use them can be a bit confusing. Often, basic things are not explained because it is assumed that you already know them. We all know that that’s not always the case. So now the SGVAUG presents an on-going series of short talks about the core elements of iOS and macOS so that soon, you’ll be able to tell everyone, “Of course iOS and macOS are intuitively obvious”.
