I have seen the @shadowdrawapp Twitter handle appear quite a bit over recent weeks and finally took some time to sit down and try it out. Well, I wasn’t disappointed.
The regular app contains a mix of free tutorials and in-app purchases. A year ago this kind of app wouldn’t have appealed to me but Keynote line drawings and Apple Pencil have converted me.
As a leftie I found some of the tutorials a little tricky but after 4 or 5 I got the hang of it and learned to adjust my lines and hand accordingly.
I think this is a great intro to drawing and will be adding it to my curriculum this year. The ShadowDraw Academy app is just for schools and features subject specific drawings like maps for Geography.
Below are a couple of my first (and very rough!) drawings. You can download the apps from ShadowDraw here
