And in digital artist news - multiple epiphanies! Two, to be precise. The first is my belated realization that now that I can create EVERTHING I need purely in Procreate, it would pay to look at how the art file sizes are in the other apps I use. You see, even though I do almost all my art in Procreate on my iPad, I still export as a Photoshop file so it can them be read by Clip Studio and then archived in Clip Studio form. Due to inertia I never fully realized that, just possibly, this is dopey. And looking at the file sizes - it is. The biggest files are, in fact, Clip Studio files. Notably smaller are the Photoshop files. But uniformly the most compact, by a good margin, are Procreate files. Example: Clip Studio - 2.5 MByte, Photoshop - 1.7 MByte and Procreate - 1.1 MByte.
Is there a reason to save the files in a form that downloads slower and takes up more space? Ummm, no, there isn't. So from this day forward it's Procreate for the win!
The second epiphany? I've been wishing for dual monitor capability when using an iPad and I just realized like a dope I'd been missing the forest for the trees. I already HAVE dual monitor capability. And modern Apple device has the same information (as long as it's up in the cloud) and all AirDrop to each other. So all I need to have a second monitor is to have a second iPad. Which I do. So - with zero added expense, wish granted!
Yup, this inauguration day has been a great day all around.
