"Wicked"



I "painted" (drew?) this on my iPad in Omnisketch at the doctor's yesterday--I had an interminable wait--read some, played on the iPad some. It was for the Monday Artday challenge, "Wicked." Then I fooled with it briefly on Photoshop--not to change much--I added the flames in the background, deleting the plain red background and some of my drawn flames. I'm not very good with the iPad. But I'm trying to learn. I made a print of it for Willie's pocket. Oh, and I replaced my spider with an upside down black widow. I just couldn't get a spider on the iPad, the control isn't fine enough (or I'm not). The top one is the one I printed for WIllie, and the bottom, for those inquiring minds who want to know, is the original from the iPad, unchanged.

This is so cool!

It's pretty awkward and not very cutting edge in the art area, but maybe they will have better programs soon--it was fun, anyway. I'm enjoying it in spite of its shortcomings.

Thanks, Steve--I'm just learning but it kept me entertained and having fun.

Thanks so much, Richard!!! I should post more of my work. I appreciate your kindness. I am not very good at it yet--hope I get better!!

Balookey, I have yet to be able to view this. I tried on both the iPad and on my big computer.

You-Tube used to work great, but now it doesn't--maybe I need to download something.

That's weird—it works fine for me. I just tried iron the iPad which I'm typing this on and it worked fine. Some older YouTube clips don't work on the iPad because they were only encoded in Flash, but all the current stuff works, including this one. It's weird that you'd have a YouTube problem specifically. It almost sounds like the site is blocked or something with your Internet connectinon.

I have no idea--it used to work fine. I would LOVE to see it, and I see there are other similar ones, too.

But it just sits there and won't play.

It may be a temporary problem with our carrier, Comcast. They were down last night--we had a huge storm.

I am still behind catching up. I hadn't seen your message, which must have come in the day we left for vacation, until last night.

I am saving the link (and I have it on a tab at the moment) to try later.

Thanks for thinking of me.

Last night, I downloaded sketchbook Pro onto the iPad, which works pretty well--it was $7.99, have you tried it?
