Walking by Hamilton Cline at Soma Eats in San Francisco, I noticed his drawing and I politely broke into his day with a few questions. He kindly agreed to an impromptu video. Enjoy! Cc/ @Bronkula

This is the video you should show someone looking into buying a tablet to do art with. "Fucking awesome" pretty much sold me on the Surface 4.
He was so receptive to the questions and he really knows his stuff! Awesome vid!
This is a really nice and friendly interview, almost like a chat between friends! Very well done.
Hamilton- Can I curse? Scott- Yeah Hamilton- It's fucking amazing! This is a pretty helpful and funny video because my parents are gonna buy the same thing he has so I wanted to know how it kinda works with the pen
this is an honest review what we're all looking for...thanks
Judiel Gonzalez
Thank you Scott great informal review, the best way to know how people like a product and how effective the same is for them...
Joshua Reyes
I have i5 surface pro and the sketchable process the brush pretty well.
Anthony Garcia
That was great to watch. Good job with the interview! The dude was really chill and informative.
Raul Leyba
The openness of character displayed from both of you in this video reminds me in the most enlightening way that there are some great open people out there so ready for a conversation and an expression of connection. Thanks for the review but more so thank you for the gentle reminder when life hit me a bit heavy.
Joe Blankenship
Yeahhhhh.... I fooled around with one of these earlier in a Best Buy, and holy shit, I think I gotta get one. In just 3-4 minutes, I doodled out a drawing that looked like it would've taken 30 minutes with pencil and pen. And I have almost no knowledge of the software yet.
Hamilton Cline
Also, I love that this video starts with me saying "vertical video has its place" :D I bet most people never catch that.
Joshua Taft
I have this app, and it works great on a SP4 with i5 and 8Gb ram.

After hours of reading reviews and watching a bunch of videos, this interview really answered a few questions I had. It was just so natural. I still haven't decided on direction in choosing new models but thanks for this interview!
Thanks for posting up this impromptu interview. It's exactly what I wanted to see about the Surface Pro 4, awesome to see it from a younger arts teacher (who seems to know a good amount about the technology too!).

After watching this I bought a Surface Pro AND I am using Sketchable! It's totally changed how I draw! I'm so happy! Thank you both for this video!! My DA is alive again after almost 10 years of no new submissions! <3

Hey, Infinite Painter for Android (and IOS) can rotate canvas (and do all kinds of stuff), switched to it from ArtFlow, 's pretty cool. On the video itself and Surface Pro 4 - looks cool, though the delay when painting/sketching actually seemed very noticeable to me. Especially considering what artist said, that he used much smaller canvas size there.

so cool that you guys did this
peter stringer
would you be able to do animation on a 4gb ram surface pro 4... 2d animation not necessarily 3d?
Imran VP
Absolutely beautiful review/interview! Perfect questions and an absolutely perfect responses! Sold!
Eric Pellegrini
I was worried the pen was going to lag with that thick brush at 2:20. Very impressed it doesn'tEdit: Quick correction. The galaxy note 3 has a 1920x1080p display. That isn't more pixels than the Surface.
Joe Валенсия
Thinking of getting myself the sp4 core m, but I'm not sure if it will perform the same when it comes to drawing/rendering.
A youtube video with useful information and no f-bombs? Who permitted this?!!
What program is he using?
Rabeel Khan
I feel so great after this video, great info will be getting the surface pro now
Vilius Valuntonis

J Christopher
I've used both and have to say the the iPad Pro is better for me artistically.

lol note 6
this is soooo honest! I'm looking into getting my own in a few months to get further into digital art and I'm hooked! I've got just a question, I've already seen most videos on how some programs work on this thing, but does anyone use Krita with their tablet?
Orlando House Jr
he tried to get at that note, and the guy properly shut him down
Syed Umair
This man is pretty intelligent!!
Finally , someone that buy what he need, not what he want. gret vids...

Not so classy Dude
Is there a sd card slot so u can put in like 500 gb memory?
d prince
what was the application?
I've been lusting after a Surface Pro for a while now, and even longer so after a Note, all for the sole purpose of drawing. Thanks for the video!
What’s the name of the pen?
This was a great interview. I think i might be sold on getting the SP4 for drawing.
Just got the new Surface Pro (2017) and was looking for a good art program that was NOT subscription based.  Hamilton, you sold me on Sketchable!  Love your work btw :)
nice interview.. both interviewer and subject.. informative.. well done!
What are the specs of this particular surace pro?
Really good interview for a random meeting.
Note 6? thats something ive never heard of
The Surface Pro looks impressive if you lean towards the Windows OS as a digital artist.
K Pierre
i want one for drawing now!!😍😍
Cool vid and cool guy.
da creativegenius
im a Sketchable Fan ever since first trying it!
Behind You
This guy is very informative. I wish to see this hardware with Mangastudio or Photoshop. I always finish my work on the program. ;)
Zaselim Gaming Videos
which model is he using in the video
Thinh Da Asian
you should fix your captions at 1:26 , when he said "app". The caption said a dirty word
dheeraj reddy
which software is that?
Im getting this for Christmas and I'm excited to try this, since I draw myself.
Liam Wilson
NO LAG?! AWESOME! Omg that's so cool! I want a more hands on approach with my artwork using digital devices! Does the sp4 work "Efficiently" on adobe Photoshop / illustrator, i noticed he had it on his Dock at the bottom?
Uwe Mobil
Great demonstration. I need MS SP 4 and that Sketchable-SW, I guess my daughter will love it.
Kafaloto Feao
I can't afford the i7 core processor. I'm getting the i5 instead and am really scared of lag. Welp.
•BFM Productions•
Nice guy. And explains things well.
Mario Rojas Jr.
+Scott Cate Great Interview. He is very good a drawing specifically on the Surface Pro 4.
This is awesome! I was looking into a different drawing tablet because I've tried a wacom one without the screen. I don't like the feel of it at all. So I'm looking into the one's with the screen but they're expensive lol so this is half the price and does a lot more than a wacom tablet. I'd rather invest in one of these.
