Pencil Tips from a Rome Prize Winner
Want to get the most of your Apple Pencil in Trace? Today, Rome Prize winner, Javier Galindo, is going to show you a few features that will make your Trace drawings sing.
“Forget anything you thought you knew about previous styluses. Draw with the Apple Pencil as you would with any pencil and the rest will come naturally.” -Javier Galindo
Want a line to be bolder or darker? Simply press down and watch the lightness of the line change. Make your line look heavy or faint. Perfect for expressing depth in your drawing.
Want to fill or shade? Simply “Tilt” your Apple Pencil to allow your watercolor brush, graphite pencil, charcoal or chisel marker to be spread wide or bleed deep. It will feel just like a real pencil on its side.
HINT: Lighten opacity slider in pen tool bar for soft shading.
Want to see something really cool? Use the chisel marker and notice the direction of the line adjust with the marker as you rotate it. Can you get more real than this?
Need a mechanical line where the pen maintains perfect width and color? Simply select the technical pen and you will have the exact line you need no matter how the pencil moves. To change thickness simply change pen sizes.
