Happy Valentines Day! …digital drawing, 2/14/22. CK

 Happy Valentines Day! …digital drawing, 2/14/22. CK

Rant:    I’ll complain again- I drew this with ipencil on iPad, and I still cannot control the two. Pencil slips all over the slippery surface. Or I frequently touch something by accident and get whisked away or make a horrible wrong mark. What is the advantage artists so rave about? What am I missing? I just don’t get it.
