A new set of paintings have emerged from the attic!

June 24, 2010

I have been painting most of the week and have produced a sequence of paintings based on my experiences in California. You can view them here at Flickr.


screenshot of iPad zombie painting.

Thought I would post the final screenshot of the zombie since the video doesn’t do the colours justice. This was a fun thing to play with today. By the way, if you have an iPad you can take screenshots by pressing the power and the home buttons down together. The display is really second to none.

first mess around with sketchbook pro on my new iPad!

May 31, 2010

This is the first proper experimenting I have done since buying sketchbook pro for my new black slate of joy. Have to say that the program is quite versatile in terms of an on-the-go sketch and paint program. It doesn’t begin to touch Corel Painter or Photoshop for ease of use, but for the way that it turns my iPad into a budget cintiq pad, I am well pleased. I am looking forward to being able to think and draw and paint on the move, then email the results as layered Photoshop files (nice option there) to my studio and use the images later to work up possible images from.

I am using a stylus to do the painting. I bought it from eBay. It is called a Pogo Sketch. It’s a simple aluminium tube with a spongey blob on the end. It works quite well, although a little unresponsive. It makes up for this by providing me with more accuracy and with the “feel” of drawing.
