The new Maglus stylus brush tip – Painting from dawn to dusk


How many pictures could you create in a day?

We sat artist and animator Fergal Brennan down, equipped with nothing more than a brush-tipped Maglus stylus and an iPad (using Procreate app), in front of the ever changing light outside his window. His singular goal was to complete 5 minute sketches from 7am to 7pm.

How did he get on? Wonderfully! He managed to produce 65 very beautiful sketches. We were so impressed, that we convinced him to composite them into a 30 second animation, complete with soundscape. The result can be seen below, highly evocative and available to be enjoyed by anyone who would like a 30 second stroll down Sandymount Strand in Dublin, Ireland.

We hope this helps you as Maglus users see the value in our new Brush Tip. Fergal was very impressed with it's durability, as well as it's frictionless meditative draw. We don't think for a second that this is a replacement for what is available from a real brush and canvas, but it does have very real advantages. It's convenient, responsive and allows for all sorts effects, as can be seen in the individual sketch videos near the end of this article. Our absolute favourite advantage though, is how easily the results can be shared with and enjoyed by those important to you.

The design team spent many months designing, developing and testing the Brush Tip to give you the best experience possible; we hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it.

The bar has been set! Let's see what you can do!
