So, been playing around a little my iPad, finally had some time and managed to tear my mind away from my current “system crisis” I have been having lately.
For this who are keeping track, Risus and the Pool are no longer in favor, Savage Worlds has slipped some, and a new contender Swords & Wizardry:Whitebox has joined the fray!
I have been slowly more and more moving away from my laptop and towards using my iPad for nearly everything, email, browsing the web, Christmas shopping, Skype (hells yeah!) and even playing around with some art and mapping.
While so far i have been able to match my own ability on my laptop, i think the drawing capability is out there, I just have to master the application of it through this medium. Will the iPad ever completely replace my laptop, least mapmaking wise, I am not sure yet, but I certainly think it is a viable means to creating content on the fly.
Thus I give you, another map made using my iPad, this time using Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro, a very nice and full featured drawing app. I think i still prefer Adobe Ideas for my usual barebone maps I like to make, the creation process is just smoother, it could be that Sketchbook Pro just offers so many options that it clouds the creative process for me. This map is pretty bare and plain, but still shows the layering ability pretty well.
