IPhone Sketches

Here are three more. These were done on the IPhone with the Zen Brush app. I really enjoy the simplicity of it. You simply deal with size, and brush type. There are only three shades, plus an eraser. However, there are a couple of downsides. The undo command can only undo a single stroke. Also, you can't zoom in and out, which makes drawing on such a tiny screen difficult. What you see is what you get.

I did get a stylus though. Because the stylus for the IPhone has to replicate a finger touch, it is bulky and still isn't very accurate. However, it does help.

I am still enjoying the convenience of drawing on the IPhone. I still need to take the time to do a few color pieces though. We will see what I can get to.

IPhone Sketches

Just for fun, here is another quick sketch from the Iphone. This one was done with the Sketch Club app.

IPhone Sketches

For the sake of getting something I could use to test for mobile development, I finally upgraded my electronic leash and now have an IPhone (grumble, grumble). On the bright side, it does have some interesting drawing and painting apps that I have been playing with. There are five that I have been using. They are Brushes, Zen Brush, SketchBook, Adobe Ideas, and Sketch Club. Each has it's own strengths and weaknesses. However, they are all kind of nice. Here is a little image I did playing around with the Brushes app. I am also including a video (It has a built in recorder). Forgive the poor accuracy of my line work. It is hard to finger paint pencil lines. I did just pick up a stylus though, and am experimenting with that. I am looking forward to getting back to painting as well. video
