Painting with an iPad

A few weeks ago I joined the masses and bought an iPad. I got it pretty much for client work and as a way to show my illustration and animation portfolio around. Anyway, I heard through the AMI about this awesome app called Procreate, and I had to share. It’s essentially a miniature version of photoshop for the iPad, you can swap out brushes and textures, mix colors, work in layers, and play with flow, opacity, and line weight just like in photoshop. Returning to my all-time favorite topic of sea otters, this is my first painting using the app…I didn’t spend too long on it, it was more of an exercise, but I was excited to have done this basically just with finger paints.

  1. very nice 🙂 …i love painting on the ipad too, though i miss a little that the touchscreen is not pressure sensitive… you might want check out artrage and sketchbook for painting too. artrage has wonderful brushes, feels more like real world painting… have happy ipad painting

  2. Nice. I’ve been debating an iPad or a new laptop. Since Jackie has a new mac laptop I think you have convinced me to go the iPad route.
