Jim Lee bought an iPad this past weekend and he walked everyone through on his twitter page with the work he created. He picked up a sketchpad pro and started sketching out on this new piece of technology immediately, drawing the Catwoman to the right.
If you've ever seen Jim Lee draw anything in person, he makes it look WAY too easy. However, he is pretty good at giving everyone a small walk-through of his process on the ne w iPad though, especially with an upcoming Joker sketch(es) he created. (Pictured below)
A Catwoman rough done w/Sketchbook Pro on iPad. Medium: Fingers & 1hr
The rough is the first sketch in the gallery above. This product, like almost all computing products, is not without its problems, as the iPad seemingly crashed on Mr.Lee a couple of times.
Gonna start a Joker headshot real quick on my iPad. Hopefully the Yankees keep this game alive :) while I sketch ... Joker rough, this is my base colors. I build from here w/ details&textures
So the second sketch is a complete redo of the first, from memory. Jim's final product turned out pretty cool, as he mentions on his twitter page, he zooms in and out while sketching for more detailed areas, and the program has great use of layers. He seemed to be switching back and forth between his fingers and a stylus.
Awww crap. Sketchbook just crashed. Lost unsaved changes. Grrr. Must periodically save... Lost an earlier version via crash. Chasing the dragon now... Man after the crash could not capture the initial vibe I was going for
Aside from the occasional crash (save often), Mr Lee's work is rock solid wit this new product. No, it's nowhere near as cool as his old work, but you have to remember, this is pretty much finger painting on the iPad, and also, it's his first go at it. the only problem I have with this is that why hasn't Jim Lee been drawing any comics? That and I could care less about the iPad, but it is interesting to see what creative people can do with it, and maybe that's why I hate the iPad because I am simply not creative enough.
Looks better smaller--my fingers make for clumsy brushes--back to work that pays
What do you guys think about the iPad art? Has anyone else, who owns an iPad, tried this out yet?
