The possible future of digital art has begun

Digital drawing on tablets like the iPad seems like the future, or part of it. And Wacom seems to be aware of that. Which is why they are incorporating their stylus technology on tablets like Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. And other tablets. And recently. They released the new Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2. The second generation of their drawing Stylus. Which offers an enhanced nib over its predecessor(see the picture below). The stylus allows you to draw on the iPad directly. Which seems like a great way to draw on the go. I personally plan to buy one myself when I renew my iPad :)

From what I have seen so far. The Intuos Creative Stylus 2 seems like a serious thing. it connects to the iPad using bluetooth. And has a battery life is up to 26 hours. It is compatible with the iPad Mini, iPad 3, and iPad air or later. While offering 2048 level of pressure sensitivity. Which the same to the sensitivity offered in Wacom Intuos pro line of tablets(reviewed here).

I am an anime artist, and huge fan of digital art. I love drawing with pencils too. But I rarely do that anymore nowadays. Since some aspects of digital art can be tricky, I try my best to explain the concepts as easily as possible.
