Sketch from the Synod Assembly

I spent the day as a visitor to the Minneapolis Area Synod Assembly. It was a special Assembly to elect a new bishop. I was a visitor because I am not yet rostered and I am not a voting member from the congregation. I’m still in no man’s land. It’s nice here in my little world 🙂
So, I was up in the nose bleed section with my iPad, of course, and decided to do a little sketch of the platform. This was done on Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

    Steve, are you using to learn Autodesk? The sketch has an interesting 2d as well as 3D effect- cool! John

      No, I’m just making it up as I go. It is very similar to Corel Painter, which I’ve been using on my desktop for years. I used to learn that program…and everything else on the computer. Sketchbook is cool, but I miss not having pressure sensitivity. But for a tablet experience it is pretty satisfying.

    We have a cintiq lab (on pcs) at the institute and we teach them photoshop, illustrator, painter and I think autodesk and maya on them. We used to put intuos 4 wacom pads in their kits, but we have stopped doing this to bring down the price. As it were, they have 2 intuos pens (an art pen and an airbrush) available at the bookstore for only $49.00 each. I could probably afford one of the pens, but not the pad. However, we can check them out, however, only overnight. I’m looking into buying an Inkling which just clips to a sketchbook and is pressure sensitive. It comes with an attached pen. They were only around $70.00 earlier in the year, but around Christmas, they went up to $190.00 and haven’t come down. Oh, and the lines you make are editable in illustrator and are algorythms. Have you used/heard of these?
