    I am surprised people haven't posted up anything on Sketch Club.

    They have a pretty good Alchemy rip off going.

    It was mentioned, but in a comparative way. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...8&postcount=50

    Is there anything on the Android end? I'm trying to decide between Ipad 2 and the new ASUS Transformer Prime, but I only found Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop Touch on the Android marketplace, while Ipad has all these awesome apps made for it.

    Also I hope any of these apps allow to keep some sort of color selector ON the screen all the time, preferably in it's own toolbar and not hovering over a painting area, or allow to pick the color off the painting.

    iPEN Active Stylus

    iPen is from a Kickstarter project that looks extremely promising. It is a active stylus that works similar to wacom digitized pen tablets. It has pen recognition that starts to work as soon as the pen hovers above the screen - awesome. It doesn't have pressure sensitivity yet, but it will once the iPEN 2 gets released (doubly awesome ). All apps don't work with it yet, but most of the art apps will and there is a list on their site that shows which future apps will work. The pen itself will be about $60, which is a fair (not the cheapest), but fair price. All in all this looks like great news for ipad artist. Check out the site and info HERE

    And or check out these videos








    * edit the retail price is $89... hmm still fair.

    The Adonis Jot is my favorite. The Jot can skip from time to time, but I've found two very effective fixes on the adonis jot's site that makes it EXTREMELY more sensitive and eliminates the skips.

    I used this fix and I'm happy with it.

    But this fix might work better for those that want a looser jot tip than what the first solution (that I like) offers. It is the solution of using a thermal compound on the tip.

    ByZero Active Pen stylus

    ByZero looks great too, but, the iPen has more support. It already has partnerships with the makers of Artrage, Procreate, Sketch Club, and Ibis Paint (all great drawing apps) and it's about $70 cheaper. However ByZero does makes a pen very similar to the iPen and it's available right now on Amazon. If you got money burning your pockets than maybe you may want to get this. Although, waiting for the iPen may be a better option. I may end up getting both to see which one performs the best.

    From what I understand it's an API issue that won't allow pressure sensitivity on the iPad, it's not something that can be necessarily be programmed into a stylus. What you want is Apple to allow the API -

    Clearly you can do it with a private API but it's against Apple's rules.

    Yeah, you are right about this. I don't know, it could be a ploy to get people to buy their pen, but the question was asked in the pages FAQ. Question: "Does iPen come with pressure sensitivity?" Answer: "No! But we plan to have pressure sensitivity feature available on iPen 2." So either they know something we don't know or they are misleading the masses. Whichever it is I'm still going to buy it. The Jot is the closest so far to a decent ipad stylus and this one looks like the next best thing pressure sensitivity or not. I just hope it works like it's being advertised.

    Talking

    Personally, I prefer the Zero Stylus pen. Designed like a broad stroke pen, it can be quite handy in outlining designs or even if I'm just doodling on my iPad.

    When is the open due out? I think I could go with the Adonis jot for now until then. Also looking for app comparisons. Sketchbook pro, art rage, procreate and brushes seem to be at the top.

    I've used all the apps listed. ArtStudio is the most "featured" app, but the UI is atrocious and the app is slow.

    My top pick is procreate. Great for drawing and painting. It uses a custom paint engine to take advantage of the GPU. Smoothest UI and actively developed. A big update is due to hit anytime now. I bought it when it was 7.99 and it was the best money I've spent on an app.

    btw, I like the Cosmonaut and Nomad Compose Styli, but they don't seem to be what you're looking for.

    I'm still waiting for all the "theoryware/kickstarter/prototype" pressure sensitive styluses to come out.
