Finger painting on iPad mini Posted on Monday, June 3rd, 2013 at 8:03 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple Incredible. lucascott Total fake. We all know you can’t create on an iOS device. Ballmer and Gates told us so James Baker As the iPad is only for content consumption, this is clearly a slightly-disguised MS Surface, where I can get real work done with my additional Type Cover with Trackpad™. Because how else? http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder James! Nice to see you here. mdelvecchio consumption only? http://twitter.com/andymarx Andy Marx What app is the artist using? Box of Cotton Swabs ArtStudio. http://www.iphoneclan.com/artstudioipad/ djbressler But, I still can’t remove the battery. http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder It wouldn’t work if you did djbressler Good point. Billy Razzle Amazing. CAugustin Phew, using the iPad mini for that seems tough to me. Impressive. The small screen isn’t meant for that kind of endeavor http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder Really? Seems perfect to me. Ah, that’s a wink, isn’t it? CAugustin I really think the iPad mini was not meant for that. But I like to see people using it nonetheless. I personally prefer the bigger screen for more “creative” tasks, but that’s me (and I prefer the Retina display). http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder Fair play. http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder Wow!!!! MrPhotoEd To all who say you need a stylus to work effectively on a pad or smart phone, I say check this video out. Just a thought def4 That was amazing. http://www.fantastic-realities.com/ SamuraiArtGuy Fascinating. And as an some-time illustrator, I am particularly intrigued to see that the artists applied that same Renaissance classic technique of building the image with sepia/umber undertones then applying color over the base image. I have to say that I am impressed, “iPad as media consumption” device not withstanding… go software. Stil have my eye out for a precision stylus, but this is still encouraging. http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder Top insight, just there http://jshmllr.com/ Joshua Adobe’s Napoleon and Mighty will be quite the design once it’s released. Be sure to check it out. http://www.theuniversalsteve.com SSteve People who can create images always amaze me. I’d have a hard time drawing a horsey. http://diskgrinder.tumblr.com diskgrinder Haha! Try this then: draw two lines, just that. Years from now when you see it you’ll know exactly what you meant. Moeskido Interesting how the artist lays down most of the color only after the depth cues are there. http://www.fantastic-realities.com/ SamuraiArtGuy As mentioned, that is a classic Renaissance painting technique, as opposed to the more modern technique of direct impasto. I’m spoiled working in photoshop, where I can bust stuff out in layers, and tweak endlessly…. Moeskido Shows you how little I remember from Art History class. And how much I wish I’d taken more of them.
