The Nomadbrush

Nomadbrush

Finally, after a month of waiting, now the Nomadbrush is in our hand!
Let's answer the first question: IS IT GOOD?

Analog & Digital

Trying with several paint app: ArtRage, Auryn Ink, SketchBook Pro & Brushes. Bottom line: it's a different experience. It gives me a 'floating' sensation, compare to pointing-finger that always pressed to the iPad screen. And I still need my finger for some task like choosing the color, brush or save the file. Takes time getting used to paint with this digital brush.

So is it good?
As an amateur painter myself, I do enjoy painting with Nomadbrush. Although the result is different - the painting experiences are also differ from one app to another - the feel is almost the same compare with traditional brushes. My favorite app is Auryn Ink.
Yes. It does feel good.

Another question: HOW IS IT COMPARE TO ANALOG MEDIUM?

Don't expect that this Nomadbrush will bring the same traditional brush experience to your iPad.
Both are different. Both are good. With the traditional painting medium, you can feel the texture of the paper, the wetness of the water, the swinging brush for thick-thin stroke.
With iPad & Nomadbrush, those sensations are gone. Flat, cold, virtual. But it's another new sensation & dimension. Each app has uniqueness & user-interface. Each app has different approach for painting. And this Nomadbrush takes you beyond than finger-painting.

Put this brush in your hand & you'll know.

Auryn Ink and Nomad Brush was most definitely the best combo on the iPad for me. I do miss the tactile feedback with traditional watercolor though. At least with Auryn Ink, there's less of the hassle with setting up :)

Indeed traditional medium is not replaceable. The pure destiny for watercolor is wet & dry on a paper :D
