Using iPad and Procreate to Paint

I have been wondering if I should go ahead and buy a professional digital drawing pad like the Wacom Cintiq.

I have been trying out digital illustration on my iPad using Procreate to see if I like the feel of it. I love the ease of making corrections and changing color palettes. Layers are fantastic, and the never ending color choices are so much fun!

My hesitation to buy a Wacom is due to the price, but I think if I go for it, I will be much faster in my illustrations, and can get working on a comic strip that I have been thinking of...and so much more. 

Here is a pencil drawing on a manila envelope that I completed in my four hour wait for a new drivers licence at the DMV. At least I had access to a pen and something to draw on! Isn't it funny how little sketches can inspire! I had to see if I could make something more of it with Procreate.
