iPad Daily Drawings With SketchBook Pro

Back in May, my husband and daughter surprised me with an iPad for Mother's day....... and I've been playing with it ever since.

I play Words HD, and read New Yorker, watch Netflix instant movies, listen to Pandora, Tweet, play Sudoku, see what is going on on Flipboard (great app by the way).

I also downloaded four drawing applications - Inkpad (vector based app), OmniSketch, Procreate and SketchBook Pro. The last three are very similar, yet each is different. So far I have been playing most with SketchBook Pro. Slowly I am trying different features - layers,  brushes  (I have downloaded many several sets of free brushes by SketchBook Pro), erasers, and free transform. The application has also text tool (I haven't used it yet), mirror tool (if I draw on one half of the iPad a mirrored drawing appears on the other half etc.

Tonight, when my family and I went to our friends for dinner, we were fooling around with my iPad and everyone really liked SketchBook Pro. My friend loved my whimsical drawings and asked me if I would be so kind and make him a background for his computer. He didn't care what it would be, he just wanted background with fairly light colors - sort of like Easter colors. As you see above, he got a drawing with two little creatures to the side and a lot of empty space in-between for his desktop icons. He was so excited to have something very different.

Below, you can see my other drawings I did while practicing in my drawing applications.

 My very first iPad drawing (above) was done in OmniSketch app.

This drawing was my second one, it is called "Potatohead", since it resembles potato (SketchBook Pro)
