How to Be Good and Geeky One Step at a Time

Using The application Ink Artist for iPad

I have been looking at a number of art applications for the iPad . I started with the application Procreate which I found to be good application for drawing with. We also looked at the application ArtStudio which has more tools and is the one that is probably my current favourite. Then there is also the application ArtRage which is more painterly in its approach, to the extent that you can mix colours on your virtual canvas. This application Ink Artist is more suitable for drawing as it has a number of line styles that you can use. These lifestyles are adjustable with opacity, size and the pressure to give you different types of creative and expressive lines.

These lifestyles are adjustable with opacity, size and the pressure to give you different types of creative and expressive lines.




Cartoonists and caricaturists

I feel that the application would be most suitable for caricaturists and cartoonists because of the types of lines that are possible with Ink Artist. You can have lines that will either start with a tapered end and go through to a wider line, or the other way around. You also have lines which are textured with a random shaping to the line, either making it kind of jaggy or softened with that jitter. It is possible to use these sorts of lines to build up text areas by applying lines with lowered capacity over the top of each other. A couple of the lines of are made up of dots and shapes, which again would be good for creating areas of texture. You don’t get an airbrush tool so this is where these types of lines would become useful.

Is it a vector art?

The lines were now drawn seem to be vector drawings because they are very sharp still even when you zoom in a really close. It will be interesting to see how these drawings work out when exported to other vector-based applications either on the Mac or for the iPad. I would like to try one of these drawings out from Ink Artist to see how they look in application like a Vector Designer on the Mac. You can export out to PDF as vector art.

A free app With in-app purchase

How to use Ink Artist

With the free application you get up to 2 layers for your drawing, which may be enough for the simplest of drawings. You can buy an in app purchase, the cost is €1.79 to have the ability to create up to 20 layers. If the application or fur is still working on this application to improve it further, how will expect to see other brushes added at a later stage, either as free or as in app purchases.

Simple application with some help information

The author of the application, going by the wording in the help file is not English or English-speaking as a first language. In a professional application you would expect to see good English spelling and grammar. This information is good enough that it will allow you to get started and explore it for yourself and create some fun expressive art. Personally, I like the application for drawing although for day-to-day use ArtStudio is still my favourites with pro creates coming a close second. Certainly I can recommend that it is a iPad drawing application worth trying out to see if it fits in with your artistic drawing style.
