Nose ring oil

Portrait of María G. inspired by a photograph on Sktchy. Digitally painted with Procreate on an iPad Air 2.

Recently noticed that Reflector no longer worked for mirroring my iOS devices’ screens to my iMac because of an iOS 9 incompatibility. Since the upgrade to Reflector 2 was pretty cheap I did that and decided to do a test recording from my iPad.

The updates I’m enjoying the most are:

  • Can now record at 1080p from my iPad (previously capped at 720p).
  • Can simultaneously record multiple devices at once.
  • Options to change the background color and image.
  • Can now directly live stream to YouTube from Reflector without using an additional app like Open Broadcasting Software.

Testing Reflector 2 with #Procreate, please excuse the awful painting.

The painting is really rough and needs a lot more work. I was mainly interested and see how Reflector handled the recording than the actual painting.
