I have been watching videos on folks using the apple pencil and the results are very nice. You seem to be able to really get light and dark lines and well as decent shading. I watched a guy do a few still lives and Just watching how well the pencil worked had me convinced that Id really like to try it. The only thing is the IPad Pro is much too large for me to carry around as a sketch tablet. If they gave the ipad air 3 the same capabilities that would be killer. The IPad Air 3 would be the perfect size for me to use with the apple pencil. Apple please make this happen. Please make it work as well as it does on the ipad pro. The Microsoft surface pro has been out a month and they still have a few wrinkles to work out. Im hoping they add support for the apple pencil for the ipad air 3 so I can stay with the ipad ecosystem. If not then I guess I will pull the trigger on the surface pro 4. Hopefully it will sort out the few issues it has.
