If you’re an artist, you’ll dig this review from Rob Sketcherman. He’s a cool dude from Hong Kong who sketches exclusively on an iPad Pro. Good guy, and he gives a very thorough review of the new iPad Pro. Worth a look if you’re an artist thinking about getting one.

Thanks for posting. I'm a huge Rob Sketcherman fan because of how his urban sketching doesn't "look digital" despite all of it being done on an iPad. Neat artist.

Thanks for posting this video. Made me subscribe to his YT channel. As I will only have about 5 apps on my iPad Pro, I think 64GB will still work for my purposes.

Nice video. I’d say if you’re getting paid to do your art or find one on drastic sale, then I would agree.

For me, it is not worth the price as I am not a professional artist.
For sure, it can be a luxury item if you aren’t getting paid for your art. But even if you love to draw or paint just as a hobby, it can also save you a lot of money in the long run on art supplies. Sketchbooks, paints & canvases are friggin expensive! That stuff adds up! Lol.

That's true if you bought 'em. I mainly draw digitally because even though I like to get my hands dirty when cooking etc. I hate getting graphite and charcoal all over my hands. :p That I can replicate that in Procreate on my 10.5 (and previous 12.9) are fantastic.

That said, I'd want a full blown system for the price of the new iPad Pros. So for me, the value isn't there. That's different for others and I hope everyone enjoys their new iPad Pros and pencils.
