Why am I standing next to this table? In a word, ergonomics. If you're going to do much sketching on the iPad, you'll want to maintain the best posture and using the best techniques to prevent back pain, neck pain, and repetitive motion wrist injuries. Now, compare my posture to what you've probably seen many times in a classroom or at a coffee shop, you'll find people hunched over their tablets or devices drawing or typing. Note that my forearms are parallel to the ground, my spine is straight, and my head is facing forwards.
My wrist is at a comfortable angle, and I'm holding my pen in a relaxed grip. Now, standing is actually the best posture for sketching. It also allows your spine the movement it needs to function properly. However, you may not always find yourself in a situation where you can be standing. In those situations, it's even more important to maintain a straight, upright back posture. Tilt your iPad up 10 to 20 degrees. Try keeping your pad at more or less perpendicular angle to the surface. Adjust the angle of your iPad to meet your wrist and pen, not the other way around.
The basic idea is to adjust the iPad to accommodate your proper posture, and not the other way around.
