Black Iris


I made this with Sketchbook for the iPad, using this photo. It was one of my first attempts at iPad art, using a photo and tracing over it. I was trying to get that effect of when you are doodling in class with a ball point pen.

Most of my attempts at iPad art involve tracing a photo. As someone who once attended art school many years before, I have never lost that feeling that it is somehow “cheating” to trace a photo. Good thing I’m not being graded on it.
