Photoshop on my Mac

OK, I’ll stop…

I’ve been meaning to do this forever – since before I got my iPad and would have had to use iPod art.

Brushes App for Steve Sprang on the left, Typedrawing App for Hansol Huh on the right, both on my iPad. Photoshop on my Mac to pull it all together. They’re the developers of the Apps I’ve drawn them with. Wouldn’t it be nice for Apple to celebrate all of us?

Would have liked to put this all together on my iPad. Does anyone know if any of the Apps let you not only scale and rotate layers, but also distort, skew, etc., as PS does?

Art Rage on my iPad, with a little help from photoshop on my mac to move some elements around between yesterday and today.

2 sessions over 2 days (so far) – I’m guessing about 5 hours total at this point.

It’s gotten more substantial, but not necessarily more Gringovitch… still having lots of fun though!

For my first serious go at Art Rage I chose a familiar subject who also made life easier by having facial hair, a closed mouth, and dark glasses. Interestingly I see I’ve given him too long a nose, and placed his glasses way to high up on his face – familiar errors quite common in my portraits 10-20 years ago. I kept thinking his ears were too high – the problem was too much middle of the face.

Anyway, what about Art Rage? It’s fun, great effects, slow going, still figuring out the interface but it’s better than the desktop version, wish there wasn’t so much lag when drawing, hope for larger exported files in a future version.

Does anyone know if there is a way to dry the paint already on the canvas? I know I can specify insta-dry paint before I draw, but how about indicating that I want all the paint already down to now be dry?

Be thankful even of those with whom you disagree.

And while we’re on thankfulness – so thankful for this community!
