iPad Art

I have been having a TON of fun lately drawing on my iPad. I’ve had my iPad for about a year now, but I’ve only used it to doodle occasionally. I finally decided to sit down and really see how far I can take a painting on this device. I’ve been very happy with the results.

Here’s a few more drawings I’ve made so far:

I started a Flickr set where I can keep all my iPad paintings. You can go there if you want to see all my drawings so far, and others I may post in the future:

Harry Potter Gouache Painting Process

Ron and Hermione

Most of my illustration work is digital, but sometimes I get the hankering to just sit down and work with actual PAINT so I decided to get out my gouache and make a painting just for fun.

Well, I’m a BIG Harry Potter fan and I am super excited about the last movie coming out this weekend, so for my fun little painting I decided to paint two of my favorite characters and cutest couple ever – Ron and Hermione.

My sketch is just a small thumbnail in my sketchbook. I didn’t even bother refining it; I just scanned it, blew it up in Photoshop, adjusted the color, then printed it out on a piece of heavyweight bristol paper. I then taped it down to a board and painted right on top of it.
