'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."

"Happy Ogre" by Andy Ellis in Procreate

Andy Ellis is an Illustrator who loves using Procreate to capture ideas and pre-production sketches on his iPad. Andy recently posted a review of Procreate on his blog telling us why he prefers using it over other apps, which is an interesting read.

The video above is one of Andy’s recent illustration sketches but to see more of his work be sure to visit his portfolio site too.

Video: Fantasy Speed Painting with Procreate

It is always fascinating for us to view and examine the creative process and how others use apps like Procreate on their iPads. With that in mind, we enjoyed this video by Danny Glasgow, we hope you do too.

'Winter Night' by Nikolai Lockertsen

Just stunning! 

Nikolai is probably the most telanted artist on the iPad scene right now. What's more, Nikolai often provides videos of his paintings. There's so much to learn here!

Urban Robot by Nikolai Lockertsen

"Took some time, but had alot of fun" - Nikolai

Just stunning! Niko always tells a story, and does anyone else paint light quite like Nikolai?

iPad paintings of Andrey Malikh

We've been fans of Andrey's iPad paintings for quite a while now, but some of his recent work is just superb! There's plenty more on Andrey's Flickr account.

Procreate updated, now supports 4K (yes, that's 16MP!) canvas sizes


Things are moving so swiftly on the iPad creative scene. Just over a year after Savage provided an HD canvas in Procreate, version 1.7 embraces the next step in high-end display sizes, 4K.

It's hard to believe that a thin tablet computer costing as little as $329 has the power to support touch painting at 60fps on a 10MP canvas, or 16MP for the iPad 3/4, but such is the speed at which the iPad is pushing into new territory. The latest version of Procreate features a wealth of other new feature - go hit the update button now.

As an aside, we are thrilled to see the stunning artwork of Nikolai Lockertsen featured within the app and on the Procreate web site!

iPad Art: 'Dad n Son' by Nikolai Lockertsen

As you may already know if you have been here before, we are big fans of Nikolai Lockertsen and we have featured his work several times in the past.

This image stood out to us though because it is not quite in the normal vein of futuristic/other-worldly art that Nikolai usually draws on his iPad.

Painted using the Procreate app, for his son Felix who has just turned 4, 'Dad n Son' is a beautifully detailed and touching portrait of the most magnificent example of Father and Son.

As Dad to a Son called Felix who is also 4 years old, it struck a chord and I just had to share it with you.

Nikolai added his picture to our iPad Creative Flickr group, where you can find more than 20,000 other images created and/or edited using an iPad. Be sure to check out the fantastic artwork there and feel free to join the group and add your own artwork to the pool.
