    We have been reporting how innovators around the world have been using their iPads in ingenious ways all the time. Remember the iPad diary and its magic locket or the iPad cash register. This time, we’ll take you to a field that isn’t traditionally related to technology – art. But as we advance in the new millennium, technology has started infiltrating in every single sector of human activity.

    Meet Japanese artist Seikou Yamaoka – who has posted some videos of himself creating beautiful drawings on his iPad. To do so, he makes use of the ArtStudio app and a lot of swaps. The videos found on the Internet are only a few minutes long but Yamaoka actually spent five hours working on his digital masterpieces. He created with his magic fingers the exact replica of Johannes Vermeer’s famous painting. In another video he “paints†a Japanese girl.​​

    The images amaze the viewers with the complexity and degree of detail displayed in them. Every portrait seems more like an actual photograph. Yamaoka is not a stranger of creating art on Apple devices. He previously worked magic with his fingers on the iPod Touch using the same extremely cheap ArtStudio app.

    The little software can be purchased by anybody who wants to try their hand at art for just $2.99. And if you think Yamaoka is only a digital artist, you should also check out his other videos. For example, the one where he uses watercolors to paint the portrait of a Japanese girl wearing a traditional kimono.
