Tools and Accessories for Creating Digital Art on the iPad

iPad Pro 11 inch   Review: The iPad Pro 11 inch is an essential tool in my creative arsenal. Its ample storage capacity (I have 512GB but 250GB should be ample for most needs) allows me to work on complex multi-layered projects in Procreate without worrying about running out of space. What sets it apart is the perfect balance it strikes between size and portability. The 11-inch screen is large enough to draw intricate details, yet the device remains lightweight and compact, making it ideal for on-the-go creativity.   Observations: https://amzn.to/3tHqfTo (Amazon)     On this page I use affiliate links and may earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase through my links, at no extra cost

Not all AI art is generated with words or a one-click process as you’ll discover with Janis Brandenburg Lee who talks us through how she uses WOMBO Dream AI art app as part of her chain of apps workflow. Over to Janis…   Controversy aside (because the arguments will go on indefinitely), I have found a way to use Artificial Intelligence in my artwork as more of a tool than a means to an end.  I choose simple subjects, such as crows, or trees or bees, as opposed to humans because I find AI represents humans in a most inhuman way.  I would hate to think I created a piece of art just by pushing a button because I feel

Hi, I’m Nicki FitzGerald, UK artist, author illustrator and teacher based on the South Coast of England. Drawing inspiration from the everyday moments in life, I stir in some imagination to create collages and painterly photos incorporating both digital and analogue techniques into my work experimenting with photography, paint and paper on an iPhone and iPad.
