I used charcoal, paint and the smudge tools (drawn with my finger) in the Art Set Pro app.
Occasionally, I try out some art apps on my phone. I began this in Autodesk Sketchbook on my Motorola phone. It has a 5 inch screen, just enough room to do a bit of sketching. I draw with my finger, rather than use a stylus. As on the iPad, I can expand the picture area... Continue Reading →
I began this work on paper, using a black fineliner "Artline" pen (brushed over it with water) - which has long been a favourite drawing tool.
