Choosing the case for your iPad is quite important. In fact, I haven't found the perfect case yet, however, there are some things to look out for. Avoid cases that has a frame that protrudes above the screen, an edge or lip will hamper your pen and hand movement. For example, with this case, my finger hits the edge, it catches it, and makes it difficult to draw smooth, fluid lines. Here's another case that's quite common. It has these fingers that protrude above the edges.
These also catch. So, we want to avoid that as well. A good case should lay flat on the table and not rock. It's very difficult to draw on a wobbly surface. This case, while it has a very smooth, open surface, tends to rock, and as you draw, your lines won't come out as straight Here's another one, which wobbles quite a bit, even if you open it up, it still has a wobbly surface. Ideally, you want to choose a case that allows you to adjust the angle from zero to about 20 degrees.
This case, you can fold the cover up. There we go. It gives you a nice 20 degree angle. That's important for your arm position. But, it's a little too wobbly. I want something that's very stable. Another important aspect is one that doesn't have a large protruding flap like this one here. You need to rotate that tablet into the best position so that you can draw perfectly straight and smooth lines. And with a case, with a cover that is too open, is too large, it gets in the way of things.
That will really hamper your drawing. Now, money doesn't have to be a factor when choosing your case. A little research goes a long way. Keeping these things in mind, you'll be able to find a good iPad case that works for you.
