Brushes app on iPhone.

And here is the video of the process..

(Strange, actually I painted the lantern first and then the background!)

Brushes app on iPhone 3G.

Edit: Vimeo seems to be better to upload videos in portrait format. Youtube doesn’t do that!? is a lot neater as well.

Still experimenting with Brushes app. I like the way some brushes behave. And IMHO Sketchbook-mobile app has better usability characteristics. Especially the Brush size and opacity puck. And double tap a corner to reset zoom option —I have disabled zoom reset option in Brushes –it is quite annoying!

Autodesk has regularly updated their mobile sketching and painting app Sketchbook-mobile with feature additions and other enhancements, keeping up with Apple’s announcements on new iOS versions and iPhone upgrades. But I have to say all these new features and enhancements has made it quite slower as well (on older iPhone, and iPod touch devices). Sketchbook mobile lags quite a bit in iPhone 3G; just enough to make it uncomfortable to paint in anymore!

Few days ago I downloaded the famed Brushes app. It has fewer features than the Sketchbook-mobile app, but it’s responsive and fast on my outdated smart phone. Besides I like the video feature in Brushes app. Later maybe I’ll share my painting process (so that you can tell me how I can improve! :))

Sketch book mobile on iPhone 3G.

Recently I tried sketchbook mobile on a friend’s iPod touch (the previous gen.). It was really fast and responsive. They say the new one is 2x faster.. My iPhone 3G is officially old. I can’t update it anymore without slowing it down terribly, neither can I use newest generation apps. Most of ’em are slow. Sketchbook mobile is quite slow as well. I think I have to upgrade, or find something better & bigger to draw on!

The Daily Sketch 32 (now I am just too ashamed to call it “Daily” anymore!), is of a yellow-bell-flower from our garden.
