An artist paints incredible portraits on iDevices


Some people have what we call an “artistic streak”. I am not one of them... The best I can do is form uneven lines and wavy curves on Draw Something. If you are like me, then you can only be envious of the digital work by Seikou Yamaoka.

It’s an artist whose tools are only Apple’s iOS devices, the Art Studio mobile app, and his... fingers (not even a capacitive stylus). This app is available on App Store, with a cost of 2.7 euros for the iPhone / iPod Touch and 4.5 euros for the iPad. From 2010 to this day, he has made several portraits, with that of Steve Jobs himself, among those!


But wait. Even more impressive than his already amazing digital paintings, are the time-lapse videos he has created (22 so far). In each of those, he shows the entire design process for each portrait, from a blank canvas to the finalized work. This gentleman also has a Facebook fan page, where you can get news about all of his work.
