This is what I end up doing post MDAC !

It's been almost 12 days since MDAC summit at the Pacific Art League,  Palo Alto,CA. It was a wonderful experience for me. Got to meet a lots of interesting artists and also got to try, explore and create art with new apps. My particular favorite ones were iColorama session , Collage session , Portrait session using Sketch club app and 3D Printing demo. I have been hooked onto all these apps  ever since the summit and I have been voraciously creating art with these apps. Here is the proof of the pudding !

Title: The Mythical Fairy
Medium: iPad Painting
Apps used: Sketchclub

Note: I generally shy away from portraits as this is not my forte. The above painting  was my first attempt using sketch club and I pretty happy with the way this painting turned out. Since I mostly paint abstracts, I liked the way this painting turned out ( it gives an abstract feel to this painting). I created this painting at the MDAC summit's portrait demo session.



Title: The Pink Flower
Medium: iPad Pinting
Apps used: iOrnament and iColoram



Title: Rise of the Planet of the Reptiles !
Medium: iPad painting
Apps used: Fractile Plus, Sketch club, iOrnament, iColorama and 123D Sculpt


Note: For the above art the  title needs no introduction. I wanted to create a collage of all my new found favorite apps into one painting except of Fractile  Plus App off-course. 


Title: Super Moon !
Medium: iPad painting
Apps used: Artisian and iColorama
 Note:  The above painting is created from a photo that I took of the super moon that was visible last weekend. When I posted this painting in the iPad Artists  Facebook's  page,  I never expected that this will receive so many likes.


Title: It's a Tornado !
Medium: iPad painting
Apps used: Fractile Plus, iOranament and iColorama

Note: I had mentioned earlier (refer to my Tornado post in my blog) that I am creating a series of Tornado pantings. Well, this is another one in the series. Some how Tornado's  and fractals fascinate me, so you will see more soon. 


Title : Dancing Yoda
Medium: iPad painting
Apps used: Artisian and 123D Creature


Title: RIP-- Robin Williams
Medium: iPad painting
Apps used: Artrage and iColrama
Note:  The above painting is a quick doodle on one of my favorite actors who passed away yesterday.  When I posted this painting in the iPad Artists  Facebook's  page,  I never expected that this will  also receive so many likes.

I am yet to make friends with Procreate and Skribl. Will eventually get there. Meanwhile my friend and also a great artist made a video of the MDAC summit and posted it on Sunnyvale Art Club's facebook page. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIoNMwl1B8o

Thanks for saying "Hello" to my blog. See you all soon with another post. Until then take care and have a creative day !
