It's time for another roundup of illustration tools. Just like before, some of these are new to the market while others are new to me. And this time, I have a special surprise for you — an Android app. That's right!
So without any delays, let's get to it.
For the first time ever, I'm including a cargo bag. And this particular bag is durable, lightweight and capable of storing a variety of tools for the traveling artist. There's a huge interior compartment and not one, but three detachable compartments that can be used for all your art goodies.
Looking for a new set of pens? With 58 different colors, these India Ink pens come in a variety of sizes. Superfine, Fine, Medium, Bullet and Brush nibs deliver vibrant watercolor ink that is both acid-free and pH-neutral.
Continuing with the traditional set of tools, the Offex Craft Station Glass Drawing desk makes an excellent addition to any artist's studio. This multi-angle art desk features four removable side trays, heavy gage steel construction and can even be used as a light table. Sweet.
04. Forge, iPad App
OK. I suspect I'm going to get a lot of pushback on this pick, but Forge is a decent app. Sure, it may not be as powerful as some of the other digital art apps out there, but it holds its own. And, quite honestly, I like it. If you're looking for something different, and off the beaten path, give Forge a try. If nothing else, it'll be a nice distraction.
I bet you're a bit shocked at my Android pick. It's cool. I understand. But if you're going to use an Android device for drawing, I encourage you to use this app. With a simple and intuitive layout, Autodesk has (not surprisingly) created a fantastic app for drawing on the go.
Well, that's it for this month's round-up. If you've come across some new tools that you'd like to share, let us know in the comments. I'm always looking for something new.
