Best stylus for sketching and painting on ipad

by karnsumans / March 28, 2013 6:49 PM PDT

Hello everyone!

I am into painting and sketching. Now i want to switch to my Ipad for this. I tried doing it with fingers as apple suggests but found that i need an stylus immediately.
So here i am looking for a help choosing one.
I am supposed to draw very fine lines and work with colors, i am not intended to use it for taking notes,
So it does not matter whether its efficient for taking notes or not.
Please suggest me a very efficient stylus for sketching and painting.

Thank you so much for your time.

The problem with ipad painting is well discussed.

It's a touch screen so you have a pretty hard time getting that exact pixel to turn on and there are other issues.

In my opinion it's not the right device for fine line drawing even with a stylus.

Definitely the best stylus for iPad

There is a new stylus called the Jukestyle stylus. It's worked great on my iPad and actually works better that all the other ones that I have tried. It's less than 4 inches, includes a pen, and is only $10!

Before making your final decision, definitely check it out at http://www.jukestyle.com
