Another Procreate test. This time I wanted a subject with lots of exposed skin since I do that by stippling little dots of various sizes and density. Very time consuming, but I really like how it looks. I also added some white and dark grey pencil to give it a better tonal range.  I also added a little noise to give the solid colours a more natural texture.

More or less successful I think.

I think this is one place where real ink does have a distinct advantage over the iPad because making dots is problematic with the Apple Pencil or any stylus. That being said, I think you did a great job. I hope you're enjoying it. I've never liked an art tool more than I do the current setup.

There are a few limitations with the stippling. On paper I use technical pens that are really precise, but you just can't be that precise on the tablet. Overall, its pretty close. I had some issues making the pen tip large enough as well, seems like Procreate has more limits on sizes than Sketchbook Pro does on some pen sizes. I am more than a little apprehensive about the photo uses of the tablet but in July I'll put them to the test!
