    For those with the iPad Pro and the Pencil, what do you use for propping the iPP when drawing?

    I currently am using the ASK, but I notice if I push with any force, sometimes it collapses on me. I had a Logitech Create, and the drawing angle was terrible when collapsed. The Smart Cover was decent.

    Just wondering what everyone else uses when they draw.

    I bought a cheap imitation smart case on Amazon that works like apples Smart Cover + silicone case in one. I find the 30 degree angle adequate, or otherwise will just remove it from the case if I need to shift it around a lot.

    I'm just debating if I should get something else specifically for drawing. The ASK in drawing angle isn't bad, but like I said, if I put any substantial pressure on it, it collapses, which is really annoying.

    Really depends on your preference when drawing, myself.. I prefer to hold in my hands like a sketchbook and use an imitation all in one Smart Case from Amazon (love by the way). I just fold over the Smart Cover and hold in my hands/arms.

    If you prefer drawing at an angle with your IPP on a surface, then I'd look at the various stands on Amazon and see if something catches your eye.

    What about a wrist rest, the kind they have for using with keyboards? It looks to me like many of those could prop the iPad at the desirable angle for drawing.

    This is the case I bought. It's very sturdy in landscape at 30 degree angle and won't collapse at all. Pretty nice case for the money IMO.

    I would say the Smart Cover in the low position is probably good for drawing

    I love that design. I ordered a Smart Cover knockoff and I'll try that out first but I may get the ParcSlope as a permanent iPP perch for my studio.

    That Parcslope is definitely nice. Looks sturdy. And I like the ridge for holding the Pencil.
