To collect them nicely in one place inshaAllah. For my convenience as well as yours.
And miscellaneous bits in this album.
I like using pen and sketchbook paper (blank, no lines). I have one of those 3-in-1 printers to scan pages into the computer. Colours are usually added in Photoshop, but I also occasionally use watercolour pencils (as watercolours, ie. wet) and grey brushpen.
Recently I forced myself to try iPad doodling. It works fine, even when using only my finger, but zooming is essential. Apps I may recommend are Penultimate (sadly no zoom ability), Bamboo Paper and Inkflow (also there’s Inkflow Plus, the paid version. Inkflow free has no colours, so sometimes I colour the doodles in Procreate). I’ve also heard of Adobe Ideas and many other paid apps but I haven’t tried them yet because I’m looking towards free options for now. The main convenience in using an iPad is with sharing the notes online. Suuuuuuuper easy compared to manual scanning and editing. Perhaps once I’ve gained more experience in iPad doodlenoting I’ll write a dedicated blog post about it, inshaAllah. But in the meantime you can hear from others who are more experienced in this, eg. Sacha Chua, Linda Saukko-Rauta and Rachel Smith.
I’m always a learner and always trying to improve. Pray for me and others who are trying to use what we have for the benefit of the world! Thank you!
