    Artist apps, tools, demos, & links for the ipad

    One of the main reasons I wanted an ipad was the ability to use it as a digital sketchpad/canvas...
    & as a replacement for my design notes & drawings in my moleskines. I also want to use it as a portable portfolio.

    I would like to draw onto a photo while discussing & changing ideas with a client.
    I would then like to be able to bring those sketches/paintings back to the studio & export them into PS, Painter, etc.
    I would also like to find a small vector program that exports to AI.

    So I started a list of app/product review links that I will be checking out... As, I am still waiting for my 3G ipad, I am using this time to develop this list.

    I have not tried any of the apps, so other opinions would be nice, as I am searching for ones that are fairly well recommended & worth the money & time.

    If you have other artist links & apps that you as an artist recommend, please add.

    I am a bit of an artist, but never did the digital thing. I would like to see the output of these in the future and see how it compares to classic drawing, painting etc....

    Just seems to me that the tactile feel of the medium be it paper or canvas of whatever would be missed.

    You are correct, w/ digital art the feel of traditional media is definitely missing.

    But it can provide many advantages for preliminary design & compositional layouts for later paintings... you can move elements within the compositions without having to redraw every time... communicating & adjusting ideas with clients is easier, etc... & I hope the ipad makes field work a little easier too.

    I am a constant doodler, idea & note jotter & a professional artist working in real media for large-scale commissioned & public art projects... but I also work to improve my digital art skills so I am able to move my art into new materials & areas... & though I still paint & draw in the old-fashioned analog style.. I love working in the digital realm too & canít wait to explore that w/ the ipad.

    -------------------------------------

    If some of the art done by iphone & ipod touch artists are any indication, I think what will be done on the ipad in the future will only get better.

    Thanks DKS for the useful info and for posting a link to my early attempts at the iphone brushes app, I got the ipad right away and got the brushes app about 3 weeks ago and have been playing around by drawing people on the subway here in NYC, and took the ipad with me to LA where I did some museum studies with it. Last week I filmed myself finger painting from the model that was in my studio for a three hour session, I also webcast the session on ustream which was a blast, Had a great time demoing the app and iPad to folks all over the world. Anyway, I posted a quick paint from the session on you tube yesterday and I thought you might dig it.

    here is a link to the youtube clip.
