    Hi. I'm currently using the iPad pro 12.9 1st gen for creating comic art in Procreate and Graphic. It's good, but a bit bulky for normal use - cafes, bed etc. Just wondering if any artists have moved from the old 12.9 to the new 10.5 and whether it's usable or if you miss the space?

    Do not miss at all. The 10.5 is just so much more comfortable to hold and take anywhere. But I guess it ultimately depends on whether you need the extra space to make your art or not. Usually I finish painting on my computer but on the ipad I take it as far as possible.

    Why's it a downgrade when the specs are much better than the G1 12?
    I guess you mean downsized?

    Yes, I was using "downgrade" slightly provocatively!! Downsize is better.

    The pen is so much more responsive!
    Check out a bit later in this video, there you can see how the pen has gotten improved.

    if you mainly work on a desk, then 12.9 is the way to go.
    If you work on a couch/bed/etc then the extra portability of 10.5 is really great.

    I own both devices.

    I suppose it will just involve a bit more zooming in! I put a 10.5 on order, then thought better of it and cancelled. I had a google pixel tablet and the extra few fractions of an inch made quite a lot of difference going from an iPad 9.7 especially for reading comics. I suppose I could get one and send it back if it didn't meet my needs.
