How babies are made...

Like they say "fly too close to the sun, promise too much, and you're just as likely to tumble out of the sky as deliver on your potential." That is what I'm just about to show you.

I'm going to show you how to work on a digital piece layer by layer not with a desktop or tablet, but with a little iPad. This work was created with the wonderful model Masuimi Max on the Artrage app.

Yes, drawing on the iPad can be difficult with it's lack of pressure sensitivity and Appose to what every one says is only a minor obstacle! Drawing on an iPad does have a learning curve but it is an affordable option to purchasing a $2,000 Cintiq 21x, Modbook, or a tablet pc. I do stress the word "option"  although great,  if you have money burning a hole in your panties it's definitely not a replacement. Before attempting to draw on an iPad keep in mind that it's not the tools that make the artist but how the artist uses the tools he has.

This is the first layer... The background. I know, it basically looks like hammered sh*t but hey it's a foundation
Next we throw in a couple of groovy planes, some smoke, and a flag
Now we add this wonderful lady aka Masuimi Max, Throw in some clothing, more smoke and grass, and some dirty highlights...

And BAM sucka! 
There you go...  I hope you found this post helpful in your quest to create that ultimate masterpiece. If you would like any advice on helping you with your projects please let me know.
