Since you wrote that your daughter feels more comfortable
with the mouse. There you could try if she likes
vectorgraphics programs. There are some really beautiful
painterly Vector programs
This two are free:
- Creature House Expression 3.3
- Microsoft Expression Design 4
But, sorry you must search the Web a bit
to find them. Because both are older Programs,
still usable. Runs fine on Win 8.1 by me.
As an alternative you can try Affinity Designer.
It is an inexpensive vector program ( 60.-), which
also has painterly vector brushes such as Expression
and Expression Design. Affinity Designer has also a
very good bitmap part in it, with good brushes.
You would have the best of both worlds. You can use
these Bitmap Brushes also for vectorgraphic shading.
For the Ipad Part
iPad Air 3rd gen Pencil 1 / vs newest iPad with Pencil 2
As an Pencil 1 will be fine enough, but the newest iPad have
an more powerful Processor. So i would spend the
Here a Link to Brad Coboy Channel with some Reviews
of Ipads from an illustrators view. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebradcolbow
Im not really an Expert for iPads, but i would say 64-GB its ok
I own an iPad Pro 12.9 64GB with an Pencil 1 and dont run
out of Ram. Have also some Experiments on drawing with
a Cintiq Display and an Wacom Pencil and find the Apple Pencil
far more better.
But an Ipad have a few more advandecs over an Cintiq.
It has an build in Computer, you can use it for other things too.
No Time waste on booting, its instand on.
The painting Apps are very cheap
if you compare this to PC painting Apps.
Biggest minus for me.
The Data transfair between Ipad an PC
its cumbersome even that the iPad has
now an Data Manager and USB Sticks Support
The best way to do this is per iCloud or per Email
because of Files corruptions.
Some ipad painting Apps i recommend
I hope this will help a little and i wish you
to find something that you like.
Have a nice day.
