Paper 53 drawing app

Barien with the flu

I found on Flickr the funny drawings of Ellis Nadler the Paper53 drawing app. This app doesn’t have endless possibilities like the apps Brushes, Procreate and Inspire Pro. Though Paper53 does have limited possibilites (no layers, no image import, fiveand pencils, it does give very beautiful results.


Layers tutorial

I did use layers, but didn’t understand it really and couldn’t control them. I found this YouTube video with a good explanation, which helped me a lot. I used layers extensively in this drawing with the Brushes app.


Exploring the online iPad drawing resources

Monmoli for jkpp

If I go to the app-store I can find a lot of drawing apps. Which ones are interesting enough to explore? Julia Kay is my first source to go to. She leaves wonderful iPad information on the net. On YouTube there is a 2010 video in which she explains together with Valerie Beeby 20 apps in 50 minutes. On Julia’s Flickr account she wrote also about her favorite apps.

I also signed up to the iPad Painters Facebook-group, led by friendly Kate Barber. All kinds of interesting info is posted there, like an article about the 5 favorite apps of Sumit Vishwakarma.

This drawing is made for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party (JKPP), my first drawing made with the use of layers.


Paint a fish to safe the fish

Me, my daughter and her friend painted a fish to support the Paint a Fish campaign. This campaign aims to restore EU fish stocks for future generations. You can add your picture to their gallery and help build a big virtual stock to tell EU leaders to take action to refill our seas.

We made the drawings with the Brushes app and then uploaded it to Paint a Fish site, you can also make the drawing online, with the paint-a-fish online tool.

I found this through the Facebook-page of the Dutch Campaign for Drawing.
