By DarrenIngram_dot_com TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 25 July 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
Here is a book that managed to impress and depress. Through this hefty book you get to learn about creating artwork on your iPad or iPhone and over 65 expert artists give you a step-by-step run-through as to how they made their images.

So you cannot fail to be impressed by the skill shown, yet you might be depressed like this reviewer when you consider your own pitiful attempts and the sheer gap between what should be achievable and what might be achieved. For their creations the artists used fairly common, popular apps such as Sketchbook, Collage and Hiptamatic. This book, however, shouldn't just be viewed as a help aid for those who like to compose artwork digitally. Those who like holding a (traditional) pen or brush might still learn many "analogue" techniques at the same time.

The explanations given are relatively short but to the point. It doesn't spend a lot of time teaching you how to use the featured applications but focusses more on the actual techniques, specific tools and an approximate workflow. Yet the art-gifted user might enjoy having a go and honing their skills as they try and follow in the footsteps of the masters.

It is possible that this reviewer has overly fat fingers, is just talentless at art or both as it is truly amazing to consider that somebody could finger paint a delicate looking sports car on a tablet. Looking at many of these pieces of art, if framed and on a wall, you might be hard pressed to know how they were made. This is one of those books that, should you have a need for it, then it would be a jolly good buy. The casual but curious art lover might stand to gain a fair bit too, yet the price tag could be a little off-putting for a casual read.

Have just finished reading this intriguing book. Most impressed by the diverse artists in this book who present their talents and skills in this not so new medium. Inspired by the nature of creating and sharing with others on the web...the sharing seems to be an integral part of the process and the generosity of the artists is very heart warming. Baffled and excited by all the new apps available but this book skillfully guides you through endless choices. Usually get out my paint box and brushes when I'm on holiday but this time I was glued to my ipad. Don't think for one minute you cannot draw or paint........you can !

As a professional artist I am always fascinated by the way that other creative people use different media and techniques.
Over the last few years there has been an explosion in apps and software aimed at the digital artist, and as this has found its way onto tablets and smartphones, it is really interesting to see how various users have taken this technology 'out and about' to do their creating in unusual places.
This book shows the work of a number of creatives, working in a fantastic variety of styles and techniques. It also has some "step-by-step" pages, so that you can see how certain images are built.
If you are already creating on a tablet or phone then this book will be of interest to you I feel sure.

I was looking for a book to give me some ideas on how to get to the next level with my iPad drawing/painting skills. This is THAT book. Very well written, it is a step by step approach o n how to use he most diverse apps. A lot of different techniques and ideas. NB: this him will not teach you how to draw. It will help you getting accustomed
with different techniques. Really enjoyed the artist gallery and the thorough review of useful apps
