Now, I still use tradional material to paint my art. Equipment can't make good art if the user has little training. Training, because artistic skills can be learned, never an in-born thing. Jim Lee has been doing this for decades, and probably has experience with Wacom tablets. It's not a surprise if this really looks good. I also tried drawing with my Note 2, drawing the portrait of Arya Stark (Maise) and you can see the result for yourself: It's fun. I'm glad Apple has finally stepped up in contributing equipment for artists who will use the iPad Pro lineup for drawing. I finally have a reason to get an iOS device.

That's some damn good art work for a pad and pencil, let alone a tablet.
