How To: Create Amateur Drawings on Your iPad

by Devanshu Mehta

I bought an iPad a couple of weeks ago, and the #1 use of it has been to draw. Now, I’m terrible with my hands– with pencils, brushes, paint, I make a mess. With the iPad, I may still be horrible, but I don’t get bogged down with the tools. I enjoy myself. And I’m satisfied. Which is more than I could ever say about oil paint. Crayons, on the other hand…

Anyways, I created two videos to demystify the process. I don’t make the claim that either of these drawings are any good, but I want to reach out to people like me– people who loved to draw but hated the tools- to pick up one of these devices and enjoy themselves. Let all the years of pent up art-rage out. (Here are all my drawings so far.)
