iDraw: Chalk Me

'iDraw: Chalk Me' digital iPod Touch self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) I made this with ChalkTalk, yet another drawing Ap on my iPod Touch. Its selling feature is that you can draw together with another user over WiFi. It has better colors than the other Ap I know for doing that, Whiteboard. In addition, even as a stand-alone Ap, it as three excellent features. First, the line it makes is an interesting chalky line, and the quality of the line is affected by the speed with which you draw it - slower drawing makes a more solid line. This was done with the free version, where I had to take a screen shot to save the image - I'm hoping hte final image quality will be better now that I paid my three bucks. Second, like only Sketches and iDoodle2 (so far as I know), it allows you to change backgrounds without changing your drawing, so you can draw on a photo, as I admit I did here, and then take the photo away. Third, it has a smear/blur tool for smoothing your line or blending colors, which I don't *think* I've seen anywhere else.

I'm starting to publish some of my detailed feature comparisons and reviews of these iPhone/iPod Touch applications, check them out!
