    I'd love to learn too, but I'd have trouble drawing a straight line with a ruler...

    Ok, this isn't really working like I had hoped so I'll just tell you the trick. :D

    All the good drawing apps support layers. Import what you would like to draw into one of the layers. Then switch to another layer and draw over the original picture until you have a good outline. Finally delete the layer with the source image inside and fill in the details and shadows of your drawing.

    With just a little technological help, anyone can do it!

    Another tip is to zoom in a lot, and use light colored pens.

    You didn't wait for enough responses - I'll bet there are more artists here. I took tons of art classes as a kid, and I've already downloaded a few sketch programs. You're right, the trick to drawing with computers is zoom - much better control that way.

    I have another one, but no way to upload it from the iPad. How lame!

    Hm...maybe there is an app for that.

    There is a lot more to this than a few tricks.. You've got some real talent.

    I could know all the tricks in the book and not come close to producing anything as good as these..

    Thanks for sharing.

    Made some improvements. You always look more like an "artist" if you use a few bold strokes.

    Thanks for sharing those beautiful sketches. I'd love a tutorial. I don't have the talent if a goldfish when it comes to drawing, and the don't even have limbs.

    I've been wanting to get some apps to work on my digital drawing, I just haven't gotten to it yet because I didn't want to buy some crappy apps only to realize I could have gone with something much nicer had I done a lil research.

    Wonderful sketches!

    Are these portraits of real people or just merely sketches ?

    I can draw technical stuff like cars, planes, buildings or spacecrafts. When it comes to drawing people or animals, I suck!

    A YouTube tutorial will be great :D

    Hehe, you should try it. If you import the image to the first layer, it is easier than you think.

    Oh my, a YouTube tutorial...

    I use my finger only, and I end up locking the rotation thing on the iPad and rotating the iPad around a lot. And of course I make a lot of mistakes and undo a lot.

    I don't know if I'm ready for that level of video editing - but lets see what the new iPhone 4 brings :)

    These are real people that I found on google impages.

    Here is my latest:
    [​IMG]
    Edit: Oh, and if someone can tell me how to smooth the shadowing in the app, I'll buy you a cookie.

    (P.S. Someone is bound to notice that they are last edited in Adobe Photoshop. The contrast and brightness looks totally different on the PC than in the iPad, so I tweak and rotate it there. They are made using only my finger and AudoDesk SketchBook Pro for iPad - at least until I can find a stylus in Switzerland.)
