Adonit Jot Pro

marvellouslywendy asked:

I'm so glad to print out you use procreate! I haven't seen many people use it and I like seeing the things you postpone about how you use it. question, what styluses have you tried and what seems to be best for drawing?

Thank you! A couple of months ago I bought an stylus named “adonit Jot Pro“ and I really love it. the thin tip and the plastic disk gives me a good view and lot of freedom when I’m working on my drawings. This is how it looks like:


A little tips: If you’re using Procreate, don’t forget to register you stylus in the “Devices actions”. It will make the drawing much easier. 

Good Luck! :)

i’ve tried to jump on the digital notes badwagon a few times, but i’ve found that personally the futureshop/walmart/whatever styluses are just too damn hard to write with and it becomes rediculously time consuming. i’ve just ordered the adonit jot pro, and i’m hoping it’s going to be worth it! wish me luck.

Thank you for giving my anime blog 100 followers! (Actually it is 102, but I made this for when I got 100 followers on my instagram and didn’t have time to make a new one… HOMEWORK) 

I will be doing some more art soon. Ft based possibly. I am in love again with Loke and Lucy and may draw something for them when I have more time!!

100 followers for the blog that gives me life, thank you :) 

bye. *Hides and sleeps far away from all my homework and problems*

Another quick tip for my iPad Artist friends: whereas a stylus may give us the familiarity of a writing tool, the capacitive surface of the iPad responds the same, regardless of what sort of tip you are using. Unless you have a pressure sensitive stylus, the dimension of your line is determined by A. In-App settings, and B. how fast your tip moves. Lines drawn with a stylus will be identical to those drawn with a finger. Keeping this in mind, you may ask “then why use a stylus at all?” My answer would be twofold. Visibility and Comfort. A well designed stylus will get your hand out of the way so that you can see where your mark is on the screen. For that feature I find that the Adonit Jot Pro is the best tool. It has a clear plastic disk on the tip which allows you to see exactly where the tip is touching your screen. If you buy a Jot Pro, pick up a small tube of Arctic Silver too - you may find that the tips skips now and then - a dollop of Arctic Silver on the ball that the disk attaches to will eliminate that problem. The Jot Script uses a precise point - not unlike the tip of a Wacom tablet stylus - and similar in look and feel to a ball point pen. For comfort, particularly when writing, the Script is a great tool, but it is a wireless device, and the one I have has connectivity issues. For me, that makes the Adonit Jot Script unreliable. When it works it is the best of the styluses out there but it doesn’t always work. I don’t mind the Wacom Bamboo stylus, but it is rather pricey, and there are a lot of budget styluses out there that will work as well as the bamboo.
I’ll leave you with a few suggestions about how how you hold your pen.
First, remember that your stylus is an extension of your finger tip. That means that if you hold your stylus close to the tip, you aren’t really using that extension. Try holding your stylus halfway up or farther - it takes a little while to get used to the feel of not being choked up to the point, but it also allows you to be more relaxed in your drawing, which means your lines are smoother (even your tiniest marks).
Remember that you have several pivot points between your fingertip and your shoulder - if you are making tiny marks, moving from the finger joint or wrist may work okay, but the elbow and the shoulder offer much larger arcs,which means that you want to make longer, straighter marks, you’ll have better results if you don’t bend your wrist when you draw.
