The extraordinary iPad art of Nikolai Lockertsen

Nikolai is an accomplished artist. Having worked for many years in the film industry as a matte painter, both traditional and digital, it's no real surprise that Nikolai was drawn to the iPad right from the start. We spoke to Nikolai towards the end of last year, and it was clear that despite some initial reservations he is finding the iPad/Brushes combination to be a satisfying medium.

Nikolai has recently shared some of his iPad painting videos on YouTube and we just had to bring them to your attention.

Just watch as Nikko builds the structure of the scene, fills it will such exquisite detail and then lights the scene in a way that draws the eye to the perfect position on the painting. We can't think of any other iPad artist that has mastered this process with such finesse. Nikko's film industry background really shines through. Amazing work indeed!
