    Question iPad-created comics?

    How long until we have full-length comics that were created entirely on the iPad (or some other tablet device)? I think that would be kind of cool.




    Also, 1000 posts! Yay me!

    congrats on the 1k!

    As far as Ipad created comics-- I think we're a way off there. I think they just announced Photoshop Express for the Ipad-- So, you've got professional software that's capable of doing it-- but, I'm guessing the pressure sensitivity of the Ipad's screen has nothing on a Cintiq.

    If you're talking about a professional standard comic book-- yeah, not yet.
    For a fun webcomic or something of the sort--I'd imagine it's do-able now.

    That said, to go through every stage of production on an Ipad seems like it would be a huge waste of time...
    Hell, just writing the script-- I'd hate to do that on a touchscreen.

    The thing about the iPad is that it's not a creative tool, it's more of a consumer tool.

    I think this has to be repeated to any critic.

    Not necessarily. Check out the iMovie iPhone app.

    Brushes and other apps aren't consumption, though it's nowhere close to a Cintiq, a digital layered finger paint app is a production app, with some real cool Flickr feeds coming from it.

    It's primarily the best consumption platform though.
