Basic tools required for this introduction to digital drawing and painting workshop includes the following:

  1. Either Procreate or relevant Adobe softwares (eg. Adobe Illustrator) and relevant digital tools
  2. Laptop + Drawing Tablet (Wacom/Huion ect.)
  3. Ipad with Apple Pencil/Pencil with pen pressure
  4. Any smart tablet with pencil with pen pressure

Pen pressure is crucial in creating good digital art, as it gives you the option of defining the thickness and heaviness of each stroke as if you are using a real pencil! This adds the feeling of depth to your work, making it more impressive.

Softwares that you can use:

Laptop users – Free softwares like Krita or MediBang Paint works fine. If you have the budget, Photoshop would be the best choice.

Ipad users – Free softwares like Adobe Fresco or Clip Studio works fine. If you have the budget, Procreate will be the best choice.

*Art materials and tools will not be provided for this workshop.
