Fueling Creativity: My daily tools – Ngaira

Over the years, I have found that having the right tools is essential to creating art that is both engaging and fun. Let’s dive into my digital art toolkit and explore some of the tools and software I use to bring my artwork to life:


iPad Pro M1 & Apple Pencil

The iPad Pro M1 and Apple Pencil have revolutionized my digital art process. The iPad’s processing power allows me to work on complex projects with ease, while the Apple Pencil’s precision and pressure sensitivity give me the sensation of using traditional art tools. Their portability means I can work on my art anywhere and any time which adds to the convenience. I use a screen protector for my iPad called Paperlike which provides a paper-like texture, reduces glare and fingerprints, and is durable for daily use. It is also an essential tool to my digital art setup. 



As a digital artist who primarily works on an iPad, Procreate has been a game-changer for me. It’s an essential tool that I rely on daily for my creative process. Procreate’s user-friendly interface has made my digital art process more intuitive and less daunting, allowing me to focus on my creativity without any technical distractions.

I also love the extensive range of brushes and tools that Procreate offers. The variety and quality of these tools give me the flexibility to experiment with different styles and create unique effects. Its layer system is also incredibly useful, enabling me to work on different aspects of my artwork separately and make quick and easy changes as needed.

For Inspiration

I love to browse online resources like Pinterest, Artstation and DeviantArt for inspiration and community. These websites are like a treasure trove of creativity, with millions of artworks to explore and artists to connect with.

My digital art toolkit is like a paintbrush to a painter or a pen to a writer. It’s what helps me bring my artistic vision to life and create artwork that is both fun and engaging. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or just starting, having the right tools can make all the difference in the world of digital art. So go forth and create, my fellow artists!
