Review: Drawing with the Microsoft Surface PRO

I’ve often wanted to do more digital illustration work. However, the thought of being chained to my desk in the deep, dark hours of the early morning, scribbling away alone is not all that enticing.

Having the power of a desktop environment and being completely mobile is very appealing. I have used my iPad and a variety of apps to do some cool pics out and about, but ultimately, iPad apps lack the sheer power of a full blown Photoshop or Illustrator.

Whilst I am still trying to wrap my head around Windows 8, I find the potential of the Surface Pro with its stylus and ability to run creative desktop programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, zBrush etc very attractive.

Now if only I could get my hands on one.

In the mean time, I found this useful video which demonstrates the abilities of a Surface Pro and it’s potential for illustration.
