Fun With The Wacom Creative Stylus

I received my Intuos Creative Stylus from Wacom yesterday and had a nice evening trying it out and revisiting a few neglected iPad apps. The stylus feels very similar to the regular Intuos pen, its comfortable to hold and is a real joy to use. The pressure sensitivity works as expected in both Adobe Ideas and Procreate without any setup (beyond selecting the pen from a drop down menu within the apps). The nib glides across the surface of the iPad Air without any friction, producing fast flowing lines, perfect for the way I draw.

Even though Tagtool doesn't support pressure sensitivity, working within the app with the Wacom helped me approach the images in a different way, which made for some interesting results.
