Alberto Lung reviews lots & lots of art supplies… which is why I love his blog – Lung Sketching Scrolls.
He recently reviewed the new Rhodia dotPad and had this to say: “The pale violet dots with 5 mm interval provide pretty effective guidelines for more technical drawings and architectural renderings, yet they are unobtrusive enough for general sketching. Thus the dotPAd works nicely as a drawing tablet with a bit of optional reference guidelines for writing in a straight line should they be needed. Good choice if you find the classic grid lines too distracting.”
I have to admit, I may not have thought about using the dots as reference points while drawing – what a great suggestion! Click here to read his full review, which includes lots of pictures (which I love) in typical Alberto style!
