We have some fantastic apps to make art on the iPad and Here is a quick look at a few of them. For drawing and painting you have to love Procreate and Pixelmator for iPad. For serious creativity with photos and filters there is the excellent iColorama, I love the watercolour brushes of Tayasui. Working with layers in Pixelmator for iPad and Autodesk Graphic is fantastic. ArtRage is a super app for emulating the analogue painting experience.
