First Iphone Painting

zdepski's first iphone painting in the Brushes program
Here it is. My first BRUSHES image - nothing spectacular
The image screen is very, very tiny to work on, but you can zoom. I started this monochrome sketch with my meaty index finger, and finished with a new POGO sketch stylus pen for the iPhone. The stylus is the way to go. It's like using a slimline pencil, at half the length of a full size pencil. I'm able to save the image at 6x the original (320x480) which can give a good springboard for a full Photoshop or Painter11 project. I see the possibilities here... To work directly - anywhere, uploading a full color drawing/painting will be a boon to my work flow.

Below is my Quicktime movie make from the same Brushes file. The file records every stroke, and is able to save a Quicktime, at various speeds. This one is saved at the fastest playback. Nice interactive feature, yes?



Let me know what you think of this idea. I'll do a few more, and try to include them as part of a broader Photoshop and/or Painter project.

Oh... my wife bought me the stylus pen Christmas - I just told her she did. This is my Ghetto Cintiq project - current cost: $24.50

Wow! At least it makes a little more sense to me now and I'm beginning to see the possibilities--I am tres IPhone apps challenged--I am IPhone challenged--I am challenged.

Nice job Paul! I find it so tricky to draw with the touch screen.

Love this. I think the playback is a new art form in itself.
