I thought I'd have some fun and draw a cartoon of the Joker. I wanted to see just how good drawing on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would be, using the S-Pen. You see, as a tech user and instructor, I'm always looking for more streamlined and efficient workflows. So, this experiment also consists of me drawing on the Note and posting it and this blog post from the device. I want to see just how mobile I can be. The sketches below were done in Sketchbook Mobile, by the way.
Those of you who have read my previous posts know that I have used the iPad in conjunction with the Jot Touch and/or the Pogo Connect stylli. And also the HandGlider Glove for palm rejection. I was able to create some fun pieces but it always bothered me because it was so cumbersome. I hate to admit it but it was a pain in the ass, having to break out the pen, turn on it's functionality in the painting app, put on the glove like Michael Jackson, and finally be able to start drawing. Pain. In. The. Ass.
The premise of actual and literal palm rejection on the Note 2 is a fact, folks. I can draw in Sketchbook Mobile with the S-Pen as if drawing on paper. And I love the hell out of it.
No more charging pens and wearing gloves. When I want to draw or paint, I just pull the pen from its home in the Note 2 and start creating. Liberating as hell. All I can say is this: me and the Note 2 are having a love affair right now. We're going to get a nice room somewhere and talk about long walks on the beach and knockin' boots til' the break of dawn. Yeah, it's that good.
Me leaving the iPhone and the iPad, after 6 years and 3 years respectively for Android...the Joker would agree that that really is a magic trick.
