Disney Artists Test iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Chance Miller, writing for 9to5Mac on the iPad Pro’s latest appearance:

Disney’s team of designers used the iPad Pro to sketch a variety of different characters from Disney classics, including Olaf from Frozen and Mickey Mouse.

The testing seemingly went well for Disney. “Let’s order a bunch,” product manager Paul Hildebrandt said at the end of a Periscope stream showcasing the device. In a separate Periscope steam, Disney animators Jeff Ranjo and Jeremy Spears used the iPad Pro to draw caricatures of each other.

Videos shared by Disney employees (via Periscope) show that palm rejection when using the Pencil appears to be as impressive as Pixar artists described it. You can view one of the videos here and take a look at some drawings below.
