drawing on your phone.

I have a tendency to find some new creative outlet and become completely obsessed with the experimentation process of finding a new way to create art. Lately I have been dabbling with little drawings on my Samsung Galaxy S2 Andrioid phone.

When I first got this phone a few months back, I downloaded approximately 8 drawing and painting applications. Some were okay, and most with a lot left to be desired. The selection of brushes, finished image size and quality were definitely lacking. Then I found Sketchbook Mobile by Autodesk. I was able to “fingerpaint” by building up and saving layers, much like in Adobe Photoshop. You are able to your preferred drawing tool and customize the stroke and opacity to suit your needs. I freakin’ love it!

The three drawing above were drawn by finger in about 12 layers over a three night period per drawing. I found that drawing with a touchscreen stylus was more frustrating than helpful. The best part is, each finished piece can be exported as a .PNG for the highest dpi and they even look pretty great printed.
