Well this bloomin Pogo Sketch Stylus took absolute age to arrive, but its finally here! Worth the wait? Absolutetly! While its still nowhere near as accurate as a good old fashioned, well sharpened B pencil, it is a lot more precise than my chunky index finger! It feels more akin to drawing with an unsharpened 8b I think.
Anyway, decided to have a play last night in front of the telly and this is what arose. It feels a lot cleaner than the finger paintings (but it is still very, very rough) and has in some ways allowed for some more fluid movements as I’m not constantly trying to see under my finger tip.
My only concern with this Pogo Sketch is that while it works, I fear that the sponge nib has a limited lifespan, as while I was using it on this illustration, a couple of bits of it fell off, so I’m guessing that it will last about a few months with daily use.
I’ll post up some more sketches over the coming weeks.
Hope you like it :)
