'Morgan Freeman' by Kyle Lambert

When a painting looks like a photo, you know you are looking at a something special. 285,000 brush strokes and more than 200 hours went into creating this astonishing likeness of Freeman. As a technical demonstration it's unrivalled. However, it's Kyle's inspiration that really appeals.
"One of the big reasons I decided to do this painting was to inspire other budding artists to embrace digital art. A friend of mine who is a school teacher explained to me recently that whenever he plays one of my painting videos in class, his students become noticeably more engaged and excited about creating art. The idea that more people are engaging in art because of something that I have created is amazing to me."

Macworld | iWorld 2012 to feature the iPad Sketch Station… and you?

Our good friend and probably the world's most famous iPad artist, Kyle Lambert, has asked us to put the word out about the iPad Sketch Station, a special area at next year's Macworld | iWorld designated to showcasing the skills of the iPad art community - yes folks, that's you!

A unique opportunity

We know that our readers are amongst the most talented iPad artists out there, and we are certain that some of you must be planning to attend Macworld 2012 in San Francisco this January. Here are the details of the event and how you can help:


iPad Sketch Station - Macworld | iWorld 2012

This showcase provides an opportunity for talented and experienced iPad artists to draw art at the show on their device and have it displayed on a large plasma screen for our attendees to view during the course of the artist's execution.

Our criteria is that we are asking potential artists to bring with them their own iPads and applications (many of these artists may be utilizing an app known as Brushes), and provide a minimum time requirement of one (1) hour to sketch one or several different renderings that will be projected. Seating will be provided for comfort, of course, at the iPad Sketch Station.

Our attendees viewing the art will likely be interested in being able to walk away with one (or more) particular drawing and our Show Management team will arrange to have these drawings printed for attendees to have as a keepsake.

If your contacts are interested in participating, please ask them to email me at donyoung@idgworldexpo.com with the following information:

• The app used to create your art

• Genre of art

• A link to samples of your work

Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Being stuck over here in the UK and without the necessary resources to purchase 2 transatlantic tickets (if you have any spare, you know where to send them!), we are rather hoping that some of our American readers might be able to pick up the baton.

Be sure to let us know if you intend to participate. We think it represents a fantastic opportunity to showcase your talent and to meet other iPad artists!

Check out the full details of the 2012 Macworld | iWorld on the official site.

iPad Workflow for Comic Art by Kyle Lambert

Can you create a digital comic using just the iPad? Kyle Lambert (one of our favourite artists) thinks so.

Macworld recently published a brief tutorial from Kyle on what the iPad workflow might look like for creating your own Comic panels. You can check it out at Macworld.

Whilst you're there take a look at some of Kyle's other tutorials on topics like iPad Colour Mixing, iPad Blend Modes and the very useful Exporting iPad Art.

Kyle Lambert on the BBC's 'The One Show' (UK only)

A quick heads-up for our UK readers. Kyle Lambert, an accomplished artist and iPad painting expert who we have featured on many occasions, will be appearing on tonight's episode of the BBC's The One Show as part of a feature that 'looks at the technology that's making a splash in the art world'.

How to Paint on the iPad

Continuing what seems to be a theme here over the last few days, we have found another look into the Creative process with a video entitled 'How to paint on the iPad' by Kyle Lambert

We have featured Kyle's work here several times before but this video we found particularly interesting as it explains a bit about the techniques he uses to create his amazing art on the iPad.

Learn how to draw Buzz Lightyear with Kyle Lambert

Kyle Lambert has created an impressive gallery of iPad paintings over the last few months, many of which we have featured on these pages. In this video tutorial Kyle demonstrates how he paints cartoon characters, namely Buzz Lightyear from Pixar's Toy Story series. Though the tutorial has been made using a Mac, much of the skills on display are transferable to iPad painting.

Kyle Lambert, an ambassador for iPad art

It's hard not to be impressed by the artistic talent of Britain's very own Kyle Lambert. We featured his work here on numerous occasions and for good reason, his iPad artwork looks about as organic as it gets with the current tools available.

Today Kyle has decided to share some of his recent comic artwork. He has skilfully put together an impressive video highlighting his Hulk and Doctor Who comic work.

Kyle is great ambassador for iPad creativity, be sure to follow him on Twitter and expect to be regularly impressed.

Kyle Lambert's 10 out of 10 iPad paintings

UK based artist Kyle Lambert posted on YouTube yesterday the last in his series of 'Ten Celebrity Portraits in Ten Days'. These have all been painted on his iPad using just his finger and the wonderful Brushes app.

Beginning with Cheryl Cole and ending up with Rusell Brand, via Madonna (in the video above), Megan Fox, Will Smith and David Beckham plus others, this series really shows off Kyle's fantastic artistic ability. If you would like to see the whole series here is a link to all 10 videos.

Kyle Lambert's work, among others, also helps to demonstrate how the iPad enables visual artists to create wonderful content, given the right combination of talent and iPad app.

As we mentioned in a previous post, Kyle has been getting quite a bit of media attention recently which is also helping people see the iPad as more than just a 'consumption' decice. Kyle's Beyonce image painting video currently has more than 290,000 views on YouTube.

We would like to congratulate Kyle on his series of celebrity portraits and look forward to seeing more of his work on the iPad in the future.

Don't forget to check out what other talented artists are creating on their iPads amongst the more than 2700 pieces submitted to the iPad Creative Flickr group.

Dear iPad, you've got a friend in Kyle Lambert

Kyle Lambert his been working his iPad magic again. Kyle took just 8 hours to produce this lovely iPad painting of Woody and friends from Toy Story 3. He used the powerful Brushes Viewer application to bring the entire painting process to life so he could share it with the iPad painting community. Thanks Kyle, amazing work!

If you have not yet been bitten by the iPad finger painting bug then be sure to head on over to the iPad Creative Flickr group for inspiration.

The artistic 'Halo' effect

Surprisingly, over the weekend we have seen numerous mainstream media articles that feature the artistic skills of iPad owners. For now this mainstream coverage seems to be mostly limited to artists that paint using the iPad. As both the breadth of creative apps and user base expands we are likely to see music creation get similar recognition on TV and in newspapers and magazines, but for now we are extremely excited to see artists like Kyle Lambert getting media attention for his beautiful iPad painting of Beyoncé.

Mainstream coverage of iPad art is likely to draw people to the iPad that would otherwise pass it by. A creative halo effect of sorts.

Be sure to follow Kyle on Twitter and join the iPad Creative Flickr group for many similar examples of what the Brushes app has enabled artists to produce.
