Figure drawing on a tablet PC

These were drawn in MyPaint a free paint application for Linux, on a Lenovo X230 tablet running Ubuntu. The whole experience was pretty fun. I picked up the machine from UPS on my way to work this morning, and went to the figure drawing session on my way home. I hadn’t installed any paint applications yet, so I downloaded MyPaint over wi-fi at the studio and started drawing. I spent about half of the shorter poses figuring out a system to change brushes & save my work without leaving tablet mode.

In the end, I’m pretty happy with it as a drawing tool, and this is without much customization or any paid software.

    1. Hi Vivian! Thanks. I’ll be at Sketchcrawl Saturday. Don’t know when I’ll make it to the Drawing Club, tho.
