Life drawing on tablet

I started with the same simple app I used last time and then switched to Autodesk Sketchbook which is much more powerful and feature-rich. While screen size and stylus precision remain natural limitations of this medium, now I feel like it's my own skill (or more correctly lack of it) that restricts me, far from being capped by application possibilities. Fun.

There was another person with a tablet in the class today - first I though that was iPad, but the screen was even bigger. When I took a closer look later it turned out to be a tablet PC running ordinary Windows and Photoshop. Apparently it was also pressure-sensitive making it an ultimate drawing machine.

Sketching in Richmond

I tried to sketch on my phone before, but that my first attempt to draw on a tablet with bigger screen. I was better than I expected, but the application which was the best one to use with phone turned out to be less convenient with more screen real estate available. The worst was the lack of adjustments for brush size, and I also realised soon that the style of drawings was defined more by the application than by myself.

It's definitely worth giving it another go with a better app. Any suggestions?
