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.
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.
with different techniques. Really enjoyed the artist gallery and the thorough review of useful apps

Not as good as I expected. I also own iPhone Obsessed by Dan Marcolina and iPhone Artistry by Dan Burkholder and find these much more inspirational and helpful.Published on 30 July 2013 by MR R A BAILEY
