When making art I think it is important to know your Art History. Art Authority is an iPad app that has over 40,000 paintings and sculptures, organized into eight period-specific rooms. It is displayed like a gallery and is very easy to look use. I think it is one of the best educational art tools out there at the moment. Check out the video below.
So I said I don't use an iPad for drawing however David Hockney does. "Hockney is one of the world's most acclaimed contemporary artists". After decades of making art he is still as innovative as he always had been. Recently he had an exhibition at Institute for Contemporary Culture (ICC) called Fresh Flowers which featured "approximately 100 iPhone drawings displayed on 20 iPods, as well as an additional 100 iPad drawings on 25 iPads." I still think that the ipad needs to have pressure sensitivity because I know how amazing the artist is and was disappointed with how the images actually looked turned out. Judge for your self…
So Everyone always asks me "Why don't I use an Ipad to draw?" Well mostly it is because there is no Pressure Sensitive on the Ipad.
Introducing the Worlds First Pressure Sensitive Stylus for iPad… JAJA. It is made by Jon Atherton from Brisbane, Australia.
This can not only be used on the Ipad but other tablets too. I can't wait to get it. It is still at the prodotype stage which is why it is on Kickstart.
If you want to buy it early before it comes out, there is still a few days left to to support it just click here. I decided to suport them by getting the blogger rate so I should get it early and when I get it in the mail, I will do a review on it.
