David Lu has just posted images of the iPad work-in-progress version of his Vellum drawing application for the iPhone. Where the iPhone version of the app included only 3 modes (graphite, ink and scratch), the new iPad application appears to feature more elaborative brushes including pencil smudge which looks absolutely fantastic – see images below.
To follow the development, check out David’s flickr stream. No word on the release just yet.
A simple drawing app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It aims to make drawing on a small touchscreen feel natural, by reducing complexity and interrupting the user as little as possible. The tactics employed include: reducing number of menus to a bare minimum, using the speed of one’s gesture as a substitute for pressure, applying time-based effects to the marks made on screen, allowing overlapping marks to take on new qualities, and offering a tightly edited set of tools.
