My recent message to my fellow iPad Artists " Folks..so why should you look into paper seriously? Here is one reason: it imitates not just the natural flow of colors but also natural "mixing" of colors. Going back to the basics of primary color ( red blue yellow) and secondary derived color ( purple green orange) you will see that paper53 simulates that behavior. None other apps do that.. The closest I could go is the water color brush blending in Artrage. However it still lags behind paper. These guys have done great job with the algorithm
Tip: use the "add" layer blend mode Tito get the fire/ flame effect.
Follow below steps:
1. Use the flame brush and make Radom scattered strokes with orange color
2. Then lock the transperancy of the layer and paint some random strokes of red color. ( since the transperancy - pixels - are locked, red only happens on top of orange color)
3. Duplicate the layer
4. Change the background to black.
5. Most important: now change the top layer mode to "add". You see the magic :-)
6. Using airbrush paint some glow affect in a bottom layer.
7. You are done!
With growing tablet market and flux of art apps available today, there is a big interest among kids about using iPad or android tablets for painting and drawing. Sumit Vishwakarma did a live iPad art show in local James Franklin Smith Elementary School during their spring carnival event organized by Parent-Teacher Association. Sumit was really impressed by the enthusiasm shown by kids for this new medium of art creation!
