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.

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.
