    The apps both free and paid versions are mostly for kids which is great for the kids to keep busy in the classroom or on their family road trips.

    My question is that I wish there was an app for adults like the one on PBS tv channel with the wildlife artist Bob Ross.
    Do any of you iPad users know if there is an artist's app more suited for adults please ?

    The worst thing you can do for a beginner is to give them cheap tools.

    I'd add ArtStudio to that list.

    Each app has it's own strengths. None of them are so difficult to use than a beginner (not a young child) can't be using them quickly, and discover the extras as they go.

    SketchBook and ArtStudio are good all around tools with layer support.

    Art Rage specializes in imitating physical media, and also has layers. As much fun as it is useful.

    CPencils specializes in imitating color pencils.

    ASKetch is a unique B&W drawing program that can be used to duplicate anything from charcoal to graphite, and some weird stuff that would be difficult to do with pencils.

    I've hear of most of the other's in DougRogers' list, but have no personal experience with them.

    Yes, I have Art Studio also. In a folder of 'secondary' apps. I prefer the focused 'single' purpose apps to Art Studio.

    I recommend ArtRage, I use nothing else and the results are amazing even for the beginner.

    Thank you for the feedback. Maybe I should have been more clear.

    More adult-like apps that show how to draw wildlife, cars and things that most men would enjoy drawing?

    More of a how to instructionals?
