    Cheating Digital Artists

    Hi

    I am new here so hello.

    Anyone with experience throw some light on this artist. Using ipad apps and says no photography is involved whatsoever. The guy in the turban (check the eye and shadow on the turban), the apple store image. Is this not filtered/ photoshopped or plain photo manipulation in some way?

    LINK REMOVED

    Thoughts appreciated

    Thx DB

    I don't really know. . .

    But her old Santa guy with eyeglasses is a much better digital painting.

    Well, obviously they're done from photos, but I see no reason to doubt that they're hand "painted." They don't look filtered to me.

    Also, I must say, it's seems kind of skeevy to start an account here just to anonymously call somebody out, especially to link to a Facebook page, which is a bit more personal and interactive than a plain website. If you're looking for a witch hunt, you've come to the wrong place.

    I like the pastels further down and the life drawings. Go find someone else to pick on.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Hey,
    These are pretty darn sweet for using pro create. It's a cool app. Been playing with it myself...thanks for the link. I've been looking for lots of ipad artwork for a while now...

    Now here's a real discussion. Pretty darn sweet for pro create, for a chunk of horse crap, for a dull rock. Why use it if has such limitations? This is a real question. A sketchbook has no such limitations why use something so clunky? Maybe it's just the old guy in me.

    Procreate is a pretty likeable app for iPad. Most people though, will clean up their images in PS and it also depends on the iPad you're working on since different versions have different resolutions.

    It work better if you have a more precise stylus, or pressure sensitive one.

    Well, as I'm not so educated as yourself and I respect your words. But, wouldn't limitations force you concentrate the task at hand. To force you think rather than have all the tricks and tools that photoshop has? I mean, you could say pencil and paper is just as limiting. You only only have those two sorts...pro create has a few brushes, and colour.

    I can understand why you say what you have and I respect that. After all I'm only experimenting with different things being at my level and I really like using procreate and I like those images that have been linked by the op.

    I doubt they will, it looks like a hit-n-run. If they do come back, it will most likely end badly anyway.
    I'm removing the link.

    No doubt. These things have a way of doing that.

    It always makes me feel slightly disgusted when I see people slating others' art for no other clear reason than their own jealousy or bitchiness.

    There is a difference between limitation of skill and limitation of material. If something can never make a very thin line and you want a very thin line then why use that something. I was only responding to the many posts on many sites about the limitations of this program. I am sure it's getting better and may soon be an interesting tool but it's hard enough to learn to do what we do without throwing up artificial un-scalable roadblocks. In the beginning, sounds like the Bible, I tried things like photoshop but "it" couldn't do what I wanted it to. When it could then I happily used it.

    I completely understand what your saying. I love debates that are constructive like this, but in the end art has only one mean, and I like to think that's "everyone to their own" right? If you prefer sketchbooks in a traditional manner, fantastic! And in all honesty, there's nothing more pleasurable to look at than traditional skills. If someone else favours an ipad or photoshop, then I'd like to think that's cool too. By no means, a pencil and paper is still probably the best thing to improve skill. I just find pro create, and more recently Art Studio a hell of a lot of fun....and that's what it all abut for me, just fun after work in the evenings and hopefully one day I will be at a good level.

    I haven't tried ProCreate yet, but I kinda like the Art Studio and Sketchbook Pro apps... For me the two things that otherwise clunky drawing apps are really good for are 1) having a color sketching tool handy at all times (since I don't always have a full set of kit with me but I do always have my phone,) and 2) I can draw in the dark.

    Actually, drawing in the dark is probably the best feature for me. It means I can sit out late at free summer concerts and I don't have to stop sketching when the sun goes down.

    Maybe in nine months time, it'll produce lots of miniature pro creates.

    ArtStudio, Sketckbook, Brushes 3 are pretty good (though I'm still raw at digital painting/drawing).

    For the android phones I found in the market, Infinite Design & Infinite paint. Both are pretty good.
