Finger painting on the iPad
We've speculated before about what artists could do with the iPad's bigger screen, and here's an answer. In the video above, portrait artist David Kassan uses the Brushes app to create a painting from a live model. I don't know what the fingerless gloves are all about, but you can definitely see how the iPad helps -- he can make bigger swipes across the screen, match colors with the extra screen space, and run touchups on a few different parts of the work at a time.
According to the video's description, the whole thing took about three hours, and the end result looks great. I like one of the YouTube comments on this one, too: Who needs a camera on the iPad, anyway?
