IPad is one of the most important technological innovations that has captured the imagination of public in the last decade. It is noted for its ease to carry and use when compared to a laptop. Users find many innovative uses as there are potentially hundreds of thousands of applications or ‘apps’ available in the iTunes mega store.
Applications like Paper, Procreate and Sketchbook Pro are used by artistes to draw on iPads. From portraits of known personalities to birds and animals are drawn by different artists. Some express their creativity by drawing Nature while some others focus on buildings. More creative expressions are also drawn by artists from all around the world. Make no mistake about it; they are not easy to draw and that makes the real-to-life modern pictures even more attractive. Kyle Lambert, Michael Acosta, Dennis Huff, Nikolai Lockertsen, Christianna Pierce, Laurent Canniccioni, Edward Ofosu, Veronica Minozzi, Susan Murtaugh and Salnavarro are some of the noted artists who draw on these applications. Some of these artists have created adorable masterpieces on multiple platforms.
While Paper can be downloaded free from the store with basic functions, additional tools will have to be bought. Procreate will cost $5.99 to download and it was the winner of Apple Design Award in 2013. SketchBook Pro for iPad can be downloaded from iTunes at $4.99 and it is the lightest application among the three with the app occupying only 33 MB of your iPad space.
