iPAD skin designing can be fun and with a nib and watercolours it would appear! This is an illustration I have just done for my Australian agent for a small Facebook competition they are running. I don’t usually take part in these, because I’m often too busy, but have squeezed this one in.
iPAD skin: Luckily I got the idea very quickly. I really wanted to do a dragon. A dragon that wasn’t scary and fiery, but maybe a bit daft-looking and fun. I always like to see if I can inject a little humour too and so added the bird startled by the sight of a dragon. I decided to use ink and watercolours, and had a lot of fun with wet-in-wet and splashing the water colours around. This helped create quite a nice patterned and colourful background. Below I am showing the illustration on it’s own and in the iPAD skin template.
