Tetsuo speedpainting on the iPad

I have been wanting to get into digital art for a while as I have always been awed and inspired by the talented digital artists out there.

While painting on the latest Wacom cintiqs would have been ideal. The most accessible way to get into digital art in recent years have been with either two-in-ones like the Microsoft surface or tablets like the iPad or MediaPads. Companies like Apple, Huawei and Microsoft all have quality pressure sensitive styluses on the market. Even the base iPads which retail for around $300 can support the Apple pencils. And this is what I used here.

Akira is an iconic animation film and Tetsuo is one of my favorite characters, this is about 3 hours in and still a work in progress. Obviously, there is much to learn and practice before I can get anywhere near decent at digital art.
