Our Favorite Products for the Art Student

iPad Pro for Artists

 

 

As a creative, you know how important it is to keep a sketchpad on you at all times, but it can be cumbersome to create on the go. You have to manage your sketchpad and your copious drawing utensils while also being careful not to leave eraser shavings all over the place. You're also limited to whatever space you're currently in.

iPad Pro

Lucky for you, the iPad Pro has more to offer than just binge-watching Netflix on your bed (although that's an awesome bonus.) Artists can get the most out of the iPad Pro. You can create a fully finished artwork on the iPad Pro and transfer to your home computer for the final touches. And you're not limited to sitting at the drafting table to get the results you want.

Apple Pencil

Combined with the Apple Pencil >, it is an unstoppable force.
Although not as powerful as sitting at a desktop with an Cintiq Tablet in front of you, the iPad Pro is the next best thing with all the mobility. The Apple Pencil works with an almost imperceptible lag and feels just like drawing on a real sketchpad.

  • Storage: 64GB, 256GB or 512GB
