iPad has become the affordable alternative to bulky computer hardware and over-priced software for beginning digital artists, commercial illustrators, and fine artists alike. Procreate is the $10 application that, along with the iPad, duplicates many traditional drawing and painting techniques. Professional artists/illustrators are already delivering their work for publication, on line, without leaving their studios. You can print your art on a conventional color inkjet printer, send your file out to FedEx/Kinko's for color laser copies, or send out for archival giclée prints. You can connect your tablet to one of the new low-cost digital projectors, and project your ideas to paper or canvas (imagine being able to move, enlarge & reduce elements and experiment with your composition and color, even before you put paint to canvas!).

This workshop will help you understand digital drawing and painting. We will share with you workflows that will bring your artistic vision to completion.

LARRY LEE-An early adopter of Photoshop since 1990, has been responsible for creating spot illustrations for Scholastic Publications, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, digital illustrations for Popular Science Magazine, and 3D product designs for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.

Buzzwords You Should Know

RAM: It means the amount your iPad can remember before it starts to forget stuff. More RAM is better only if you are a professional illustrator and are used to applications like Adobe Photoshop. If you just want to make nice paintings and beautiful drawings, don't worry about RAM.

GB & TB listings: This listing is more important.

  • GB (or Gigabytes): The more GB you have, the more drawings you can store on your iPad. You don't want to run out of space in the middle of your your drawings or paintings. Every week you should back up your files and periodically erase older artwork to make more room on your iPad.

  • TB (or Terabytes): One thousand GB (Gigabytes) equals one TB (Terabytes) so this is a lot more storage space. I think it is more space than you need for artwork.

  • I recommend a minimum of 128 GB for most iPad models.
