iPad Art: Just Another Fairytale

Just Another Fairytale

This week’s featured iPad art piece is titled ‘Just Another Fairytale. My daughter helped me choose this one. She was looking through images with me and liked quite a few. Then she spotted this one and she absolutely loves it – and the selection process was no longer a contest.

This was created by Cheeky Raffy using the Procreate app.

I’ve featured Cheeky Raffy’s iPad paintings here several times before. He’s become one of my favorite iPad artists. I love the way his images are not just beautiful, but always have such a sense of whimsy and fun to them. And the way there’s always so much going on in his works, so many little things you spot as you look closer and longer at one of his images.

My daughter appreciated some of those same things – and just found it a gorgeous image.

You can see more of Cheeky Raffy’s great work at his Flickr stream. He’s also a regular contributor at the iPad Insight Flickr group and at our Google+ iPad Art community.

iPad Art: Tio Salamanca from Breaking Bad

Tio Salamance iPad painting

This week’s featured piece of iPad art is this stunning portrait of Tio Salamanca from the hit TV series Breaking Bad.

It’s the work of Michael Acosta, whose work has been shown here several times. Here’s what Michaal had to say about the image when he shared it to our iPad Art Google+ community:

DING Hector ‘Tio’ Salamenca from the show “Breaking Bad”- done on my iPad using the app Paper by FiftyThree. This is another contribution for Raheem Nelson’s upcoming Breaking Bad project.

I think the portrait is incredibly life-like. I can just about hear the ding ding sound of Tio’s bell when I look at this. It’s the perfect reminder that the final episodes of Breaking Bad start airing just a week from today.

iPad Art: Woz Portrait

Woz iPad painting

Today’s featured iPad art is a painting of Apple’s co-founder, Steve Wozniak. It’s titled ‘Portrait of Steve Wozniak at Work Today’ and was created by iPad portrait artist David Newman.

Newman does iPad portraits painted from life and this one was clearly a thrill for the artist himself, as he’s been an Apple user himself since 1984. That’s already a nice backstory for this image. It gets better though, because Woz himself loves the result. He told Newman:

It really is the best picture or painting of me ever!

It’s awesome to see a lovely tribute to one of Apple’s founders, done on one Apple’s latest, greatest devices. You can check out more of Newman’s great iPad portraits here:

iPad Art: Summer Mobile

IMG_6851

This weekend’s featured iPad art is this striking image titled ‘Summer Mobile’.

It’s the work of Helene Goldberg, or hgberk on Flickr, painted with the ArtRage app on the iPad.

I’ve been a big admirer of Goldberg’s work for a long time now. I love how much depth there always seems to be in her abstract images, and also how her use of color always works so well with the theme of each image.

Even without seeing the title, this one clearly says summer and all the happiness it brings. It’s such a happy image.

iPad Art: Cats

My Cat by Brian Le Lion

This weekend’s selection of lovely iPad art is all about cats, large and small. First up is the image above, titled ‘My Cat’. It’s by Brian Le Lion, created with the Art Studio app. I haven’t owned that many cats, but this looks like a sort of epic cat stare that all of us can recognize.

Here’s another iPad painting that captures a classic kitty pose – this one is ‘Hey There’ by Cheeky Raffy, create with the Procreate app.

iPad Art: Puente de Triana, Sevilla

Puente de Triana Sevilla by Pilar Humada

I’m about as artistic as a lump of coal, but I’ve always appreciated great art and admired the heck out of those who create it. Given my huge interest in the iPad, I’ve been fascinated to watch as a growing number of both traditional and ‘digital’ artists have embraced the Apple tablet as not just one of their tools, but as their primary canvas in recent years.

I’ll share some great iPad art here each weekend, and I hope some of you will become fans of it too, or better still be inspired to create your own art on the iPad.

This week’s featured iPad art is titled ‘Puente de Triana, Sevilla’ – and is a view of the Triana bridge in Sevilla of course. I love cityscape images and especially those that include a striking bridge like this one. This was painted on an iPad by Pilar Humada – using the Ibis Paint app.

I only just discovered Pilar’s iPad artwork a couple of months ago and she is already one of my favorite iPad artists. You can see more of her superb artwork at her Flickr photostream.

iPad Art: Father’s Day

Fathers Day

As of last night I hadn’t yet chosen an image or images to use for this weekend’s iPad Art post. I often have some ideas on the theme for the weekly post but leave my final selection until Sunday morning. Well, this week that approach couldn’t have turned out any better – because I spotted this striking image in the iPad Art Google+ community that I run.

I think it is just perfect for Father’s Day – especially since these are the words that accompany the painting:

Holding your hand, I can cross river of fire…… Happy Father’s Day….

This iPad painting was created by Google+ user Rohit Bhardwaj.

I hope all the dads out there are having a wonderful day.

iPad Art: Seascape

Seascape

Here’s another example of wonderful art created on an iPad. Sticking with this weekend’s summer theme, this is another image that brings to mind all the best of being near water or out in the water.

This one is titled ‘Seascape’ and was created by Helene Goldberg, using the ArtRage app. I’m a huge fan of Goldberg’s work. It’s often abstract and always has fascinating colors.

This seascape image is enticing and serene all at once, and it also brings back lots of good memories of lazy afternoons on a catamaran.

Check out more of Helene Goldberg’s incredible iPad art at her hgberk Flickr photostream. And of course take a look at our iPad Insight Flickr group for lovely iPad art and iPad wallpapers.

iPad Art: Hello Summer

Amanda by Pilar Humada

Today’s featured iPad art is a double-dose of images that will make you want to head for the nearest beach right away. Here in Austin, Texas we’ve already reached the time of year where temperatures are at the ‘touch the steering wheel, burn the flesh off your hand’ level – so a beach sounds awfully good to me.

The painting above certainly doesn’t make the beach any less appealing. It’s titled ‘Amanda’ and is the work of Pilar Humada. It’s hard not to find that image just captivating. The woman and the location look equally beautiful and peaceful. OK, maybe not absolutely equal, but close.
