Fulfilled Dream by Charlie Greenberg using Zen Brush and GarageBand

Charlie Greenberg is an author, musician and all-round creative fellow. Charlie has recently been trying his hand with Zen Brush – a interesting Japanese brush painting app from PSOFT – and GarageBand, combining the results of each app into one pleasing video.

It's good to see this trend of combining the output of several iPad apps into one creative piece. There are still significant gaps in the process that can often only be filled by reverting back to a Mac or PC, but those gaps are likely to shrink significantly as Apple beef-up iOS and introduce its iCloud service later in the year.

On a related note, the developer of Zen Brush, based in the Japanese city of Sendai, is offering iPad owners a chance to support those effected by the recent earthquake through their Zen Brush Art Book app. It's well worth a look.

Zen Brush, a simple ink brush tool

What Zen Brush by Psoft Mobile provides is a simple but accurate simulation of an East Asian ink brush. While we wait patiently for the full ink and wash painting experience for the iPad, Zen Brush is a good start and with a choice of backgrounds/borders and the option to share your artwork on Twitter, we think Zen Brush will appeal to those looking to sharpen their ink brush skills. It's also worth noting that Zen Brush is a universal app, so it will work on your iPhone or iPod touch too.
