Hi Laura! I’m in the same situation and came out of lurking to give my two cents
I think the V would be very suited for what you seem to want to use it for (drawing on the go? Outside? Heck yes!) I myself am not going to buy an Ipad pro because I need to be able to do some 3d modelling as well as drawing/painting and I also don’t want to have to spend significantly extra for a pen and a keyboard. (And do not want to invest time learning new software)
Spec wise the V looks very solid to me, you would be fine with the i3 model probably. I myself use paint tool sai for drawing, it is about 50$ and makes really smooth lines, great if you make comic-y or manga looking stuff. The biggest advantage is that it is very easy on your computer and doesn’t require much to run.
Important for drawing is the pen sensitivity, the V’s pen has 1028 levels of sensitivity, which is good enough. It is lower than my current setup (2048 levels) I think it will affect line quality, which would make it more difficult to make clean lineart. (That is difficult either way though) if you aren’t used to anything right now, it’s really just a matter of practice. (I can eleborate about line quality, however it’s getting p long now, so ask me about it if you want to know )
Anyhoo, I hope this helps!
