I did not read any directions.
I signed up and entered the correct WiFi numbers.
Then I uploaded the three apps that the girl at the Apple store told me were good for illustrators: Procreate ($4.99), Tayasui Sketches (free), and Adobe Photshop Sketch (free), and one I found myself called Amaziograph ($.99), and after trying them for about five hours last night I am happy to say I am very happy with the results.
The learning curve is practically nil, and the results were better than anything I was ever able to create on the Cintiq after a year.
|I love this thing.|
The iPencil is the perfect weight IMHO, and the tip can draw microscopic dots to super wide background fill, and everything in between. Charging is amazingly fast--fifteen seconds gives you thirty minutes of use.
I have to give some accolades to the apps too. The additional $6 I spent turned this thing into a drawing machine. Yes, I just got it yesterday and of course I have not run the gamut of drawing situations, but I can only compare it to what I had been using in the digital world and the ease of use and results can't be beat.
The iPad itself is a great size, light enough to use on your lap, and unencumbered by any cords.
I'll keep you updated as I progress and improve as I use the iPad Pro.

I was up all night using this thing, and although I am tired today, I am looking forward to using it again today.
I'll be checking out some more apps this week--I'll post about them soon. Off to draw!
