    Stylus Grips

    I'm specifically using the Apple Pen, and I find it's fairly slippery and a bit small for my hand. However a lot of grips designed for the Apple Pen specifically are automatically marked up 2x because of the brand name. Anyone have recommendations for grips they've used with Wacom or Cintiq styluses?

    more serious answer: I personally don't use grips for wacom as I find the intuos stylus fatter than drawing with most traditional tools, but have you tried overlapping thick rubberbands? A friend with dexterity issues uses that and they cost pennies.

    Cannot help to ask whether it is doable to do digital art with a crappy stylus with unspecified pressure sensitivity, no buttons, on a tablet that does not run industrial standard software? Or do we have another wannabe who thinks spending $100 on a pencil makes you a professional artist?

    Not sure what you’re talking about. I get a very wide range of pressure and tilt sensitivity on my stylus. I use a lot of Adobe products on my tablet, everything links to Creative Cloud if there’s something I need done on the desktop version, and there’s lots of nice art programs that can export to psd or other file formats. I used have a Wacom pen with buttons but I didn’t like the feeling of it. The main draw for me was portability with my tablet now.

    But I mean, fuck me for having preferences for specific tools I guess?

    That's a weird thing to complain about. #21stcenturyproblems
    It's possible to do digital art with a mouse, it'll just take longer.
    Heck, there's still a market for pixel artists.

    Do you tell that to everyone who owns a tablet pen? Do you also tell traditional painters that they can use a paint roller?

    Y’all are acting like I’m insane for wanting to make a small customization to my pen, as if artists haven’t had a variety of brushes and pencils for hundreds of years.

    @Modi, thanks for the links, those are more in line with what I was expecting to pay. Most of the ones I saw recommended were $40-$50. It’s nice that they ship to Canada too. I might order a bunch of the cheaper ones and see which feels best.

    If you cannot help someone with a legit request, just move on and keep the snark to yourself.

    Sorry, no.
    I had quoted eezacque since I was responding to them, but it looks like that disappeared.
    A good chunk of my reply is missing also...

    Whether professional digital art is doable without industry software or a pricey tablet.
    Shorter answer: yes, it can and has been done with a mouse and open-source stuff, but it becomes a time/detail trade off depending on type of digital art.
