Meet the Juice Cleanse

I downloaded an app a while back called Procreate -- it's what all the serious artists use to illustrate, paint, create, whatever on the iPad. For $10, I purchased it, too.

People have a cow about paying $10 for an app, but seriously -- one trip to Starbucks or an iPad's lifetime of creativity?

The program is impressive, but the learning curve is steep. While it waits in the wings, I've discovered a few other apps that allow for me to get used to the idea of digital illustration -- both of them from Adobe.

While Adobe products also have a steep learning curve, the uphill climb hasn't been too rough. It's given me a chance to practice creating little characters -- for some reason, I've been drawn to giving inanimate objects some life.
