Just wanted to say that I LOVE my iPad! Since getting it, I downloaded ArtStudio and have been drawing/painting like a madman!

Here's some I've created:

Awesome stuff. I don't know you, are you involved with any dev teams? There are probably a whole bunch around here that'd pay decent money for artwork like that, even if it was done on an iPad.

You might have seen me around on the boards, I visit frequently everyday, post less though...

Not involved with any dev teams and am not an artist by nature, I'm actually an application developer...

Thanks for the feedback! :)

As I was drawing, I used the ArtStudio Export feature to export to my Photo's. I was messing around with the slideshow feature with dissolve and it actually looked cool when it transitioned.

I'm using natures grown stylus... my fingers! :) I thought about getting a pogo, but I'm actually used to drawing by finger now.

It was hard to believe that it was painted on iPad.
Thanks you put video from the process.
I'm even more happy as it was painted in my app, ArtStudio :)
It's the best of the best.
This image is a great promotion of ArtStudio.

Wow, great to hear from the deveolper of ArtStudio! You have written an amazing application and it's worth far more than the amount you're charging right now!

I've said it time and time again, best $0.99 I've ever spent! :D

Not buying until they fix it - although if you have an iPad, you might want to snag it now before they realize.

The Bowser drawing took me over a week to do, lots of shading and detailing needed.

The CQB took abbey a week to do. It's amazing how m ouch detail is packed into such a little figure! Surprisingly, the damn boots were the hardest part to shade and detail out!

The other 2 paintings took about 2 days each.

Trying to decide what to start next...

I would consider checking out Art Studio if I saw a hands-on (or finger-on) video of similar work being done. That's impressive how well the Mario one turned out after starting with such a simple sketch.

It's funny, I posted some of my stuff on another forum to show off iPad art and someone contacted me wanting to write an article on my stuff. I didn't take them too seriously, but they actually wrote something! :D

*EDIT*

Oh and Sylwester, I should be earning some sort of commission for praising your app as much as I do! I be sure to mention it whenever anyone asks what App I used since I haven't had the need to try out anything else on the App store yet! :)

That definitely sounds like an ad. Are you completely unaffiliated with Artstudio? If not, then i may have to try it out in spite of the low star ratingS it's been getting in the app store.

@ Random Guy - They were done 2 days on and off, mostly at night after the kids were in bed and I needed some down time.

@ Grubjelly - This is the Internet so you'll have to take my word for it - I am not affiliated with ArtStudio, just a user.

After picking up my iPad, I was really wanting to try out an art app to see if I'd like it or if would even be worth it on the iPad. I kept leaning towards Brushes or Sketchbook since there was so much talk about them. I even started a thread here to see what other's thought:

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=901326

I ended up getting ArtStudio since it was only a dollar (I've spent much more on games that I hardly ever get into!) and I really got into it.

I've still been tempted to try out the other's, but have gotten used to what's available. There are some tools I wish it had, but I'm able to do what I need to with it. At this point, I know where things are and how to adjust brush settings so if I jumped to another app, I'd have to start all over again.

I don't know what more to say, I like the App and praise it for what it is.

Sorry, i watched the YouTube video, read the blurb on the sketchy "obamapacman" blog, and am still not convinced. There's no way to tell in the video that fingers and the art program you are endorsing are what were used.

A real-time, hands-on video of art studio being used to create that or similar works would be convincing.

You've got trust issues. If you don't believe him, make your own mind up. It's a dollar, I'm sure you won't die in the gutter just because you didn't make it big in the art world. The way you're talking makes this sound like a massive conspiracy when there's really no reason for it to be.

Why "massive conspiracy"? Isn't that a bit of an exaggeration? All I said was that the video wasn't convincing, and that the linked 3rd-party blog (not the artist's) seemed sketchy. If this were accompanied by a real-time video of someone making those or similar works without a stylus, then this 99 cent app would seem more compelling.

@Grubjelly - I wholeheartedly understand you being unconvinced about this, but I really have nothing to prove. I linked to the obamapacman blog because I was genuinely excited to see my stuff published on someone's site, I thought it was cool and was excited. If something you created was put up by someone else, you would be excited too. Since then, I've been shocked to see articles about my stuff on Appadvice and on, one of my favorite sites, TUAW.

I don't have a personal blog. The closest I came to this was a site on wordpress called DSIblogger. I have a flickr page with my stuff and that's it. I started this as a hobby and really have nothing to prove. I started this thread here to honestly show off my stuff because I am proud that I did something that I thought looked decent.

I really don't feel the need to post a video of me drawing for hours to prove that I did something or not. I don't make money from this and don't intend to. It's a hobby I just got into, nothing more, and is something that I'm enjoying. I can't help but to give credit to the person who built the tools that I use, it's well deserved.

Hours wouldn't be necessary. Just a few minutes of the the real thing (using only fingers, as you said) would be convincing; one knows it when one sees it.

As for the appadvice article - they just skimmed the net and latched onto the same obamapacman blurb linked above.

By you repeatedly emphasizing your lack of formal training and exclusive use of this one app, skepticism was fairly invited. The "i really should be paid for endorsing this product so much" statement that you made earlier didn't help the case any.

It's just that there's absolutely no reason to believe he'd be lying yet for some reason you're suspicious. It'd be like me starting a thread saying "my wife's just had our first child" and you replying with "pics or it didn't happen".

The appadvice article cited above seems like an "expedited review" in disguise. Notice how there are two artists named and given equal coverage, but only the app (artstudio) claimed to be the only ipad art app used by the first artist is named, and appstore-linked at the bottom, whereas no mention is made of any apps used by the second artist.

I'm not talking about that review, but rather their "article" entitled "Artists are using the ipad to create their next masterpieces," (http://appadvice.com/appnn/2010/05/the-ipad-for-artists/) which names and lists samples by two ipad artists, yet only mentions and appstore-links the one app "Artstudio."

Well, I actually managed to score enough quiet time to record something. This was done in 10 minutes of rushing, but I tried to mimic the style of my daisy painting to show what brushes were used. The daisy painting took about 2 days to finish, this one was done in 10 minutes. Drawing under pressure is hard!

Also, I realized after the fact that I should have put the camera on the other side. I use my right hand to draw and my left to select tools. Oh well, I'm not making another one, but you can see what's going on.

Here's my latest one, a portrait of my cat Smokie. This was done on an iPad using the ArtStudio App.

I really had a hard time trying to figure out how to paint the fur, but am more than happy with the results.

Surprisingly, the ear was probably the one of the most difficult part since it is so plain looking at first site.

I really am proud of this painting and think it's true to life!

I'm not a trained artist at all. I have always had ideas and am finding the iPad perfect for getting those ideas out.

I actually think i want to do more fantasy art like my last one. It was really fun to draw and wasn't something that had to look exactly like an object or person in real life.

quick question, is it possible to create very large (300dpi) images in artstudio? either directly, or exporting a file which can be enlarged on the computer (ala the brushes app).

i love painting on the ipad and am looking for new art software, this one looks awesome :)

ArtStudio for iPhone always costed $3.99.
ArtStudio for iPad always costed $0.99.

I never changed the prices for ArtStudio

Max canvas size for iPad 3/ipad 4 is 2448*3264.
It means you can create 10.9*8.2 (in inches) image with 300dpi quality

Awesome artwork !

I would love to see a macbook pro with retina display and a wacom digitizer built in... the ultimate artist dream machine?

I'd consider myself creative, but this is my awful attempt at drawing on iPad!


Maybe I lack patience, the correct app, or both...:(
