iPad Portrait by KnavesAndKnots iPad Portrait by KnavesAndKnots
Well, in case anyone wonders what I've been up to - here's some work from my iPad. I STILL don't have a working laptop (been without it for three months) so I don't have the precious CS5 and intuos tablet, but I got bored of not being able to upload anything here!

On a related note, I apologise for the quality. Elements of the hair and shading were somewhat limited by working with the iPad, and when I sent the image from my iPad software to the computer, something funky happened with the colours (which I've tried to correct...) - I don't know if that's just the difference between the screens or what, but it's pretty annoying.

Also, tiny tiny image (compared to Photoshop canvas)! So don't zoom in on this thing, it's just pixels xD

What else? Oh yes, I'm actually rather proud of those lips. They're good, for me. Probably the best lips I've drawn/painted. And FEAR THE EYELASHES - pretty weird, huh?

If anybody is interested, I'll try to post this alongside the March 2012 version of the same picture, as one of those kick-your-own-ass meme things.

- Made with iPad (1) and ArtStudio software (it's free! I'd recommend for anyone with an iPad) - no refs - 10 hours or more.

How do we do meme on iPad?

Well, I prefer to do memes on the computer - but if its a meme here on deviantart, I would just screenshot the meme, open up my screenshot in artrage (which is the app I used at the time I drew this), crop to get the meme without the rest of the screenshot, and copypaste or draw my artwork in as appropriate to the meme.

I hope that helps? It's been a long time since I used the ipad.

Wow. Just wow. Most people that I know who have iPads play stoopid fruit ninja! This however, is your money well spent. :) Love the rendering and the detail. You have a brilliant control while coloring on touch screen. And a very enormous stock of patience. ^^;

My draws on my touch screen phone make me look like The Hulk is trying to draw. :shakefist:

Thank you for your lovely comment! Yup, art is just about all I use my ipad for! I haven't tried drawing on my phone - it's an ancient iphone (the very first generation, I think) and I haven't found an app for it. But I bet it's hard! Such a small screen.

Those eyes are charming, she is like a fluffy snowflake! Very nice painting, but you need to practice some anatomy if you don't mind me saying. This could be perfect if you would have made some studies from life.
Great work, keep it up!

Thank you. Oh - I know! The nose is very poor, the worst bit I think? Anyway - rest assured that I am always studying anatomy and drawing from life to improve :)

This is so coolie~! I really love how smooth all the shadng is! And on and iPad, wow! Her eyelashes, for some reason, really makes this a great picture, in my opinion~ They're so different from stuff you normally see! I really like them~ Amazing job! <3

Mhmm, the eyelashes are...unique, I guess! They look odd to me (so used to seeing eyes framed by dark lashes), but I'm really glad that you like them :) Thank you :love:

I feel like such a stalker, commenting on various works of yours, but I had to say something about this one because the colours are incredible! I love the contrast between the red lips and hairband and the white hair and lashes, and the blue of the eyes is gorgeous too! Fabulous!

:heart: Strange but beautiful. I like the white eyelashes. Her lips are really well done too. You've been looking at tutorials for this right? please tell me you have. Also that nose is so dimensional, really good and rounded face too. For an ipad this is just amazing. :heart:

Thankies :love: erm, tutorials. Not so much, I've looked through some on colour theory and skin tone, but I've made biggest leaps by studying other artists and a bit from watching livestream. I've really looked hard at what shapes of shadow and light my favourite digital artists use to describe form - that helped instantly and miraculously with the lips, and has improved the overall face structure. I'm still finding noses a bit hit and miss, my shading is still trial and error on the nose! What else? Oh yes, I wanted to improve eye realism and detail (this piece isn't the best example possibly) so I've drawn my own eye over and over xD but tutorials not so much - just real careful study of how my heroes have drawn faces.

Thank you, I'm so glad you like it! (And share my fondness for those lips!) ArtStudio definitely comes with my recommendation - for a free app I think it's quite versatile. I hope you enjoy using it :)
