IF: stripes (made with ArtStudio app)

© 2011 Sylvia Liu

This week, I experimented by making this illustration entirely on my iPad. I used the ArtStudio app, a fun, intuitive Photoshop-like program that allows up to five layers. It has special effects, like the tubular paint used for the bars, and filters like the "noise" added to the background. It was unwieldy drawing only with my fingers, so I'm going to investigate getting a tablet pen. Let me know if you have a good recommendation for one.

Many people have discovered the art of making art on an iPad. Here is a collection of excellent paintings made on an iPad, and another compilation of twenty more interesting ones.
