BACK FROM THE DEAD

WHAAAAAAT?!!?
I know, It's been THAT long since I updated. Well, there is a reason for that. I think along the way I just got bored of my style. It was literally 2 years of not drawing. Little to no drawing anyways. It wasn't until I bought a little tool that gave me MORE confidence in my drawings. Gave me a complete and total fresh start. An iPad. What you see under this, are 100% complete and total iPad paintings and drawings. No outside influence. It's now my weapon of choice. I don't know what happened, I wrestled with the thing for a year and finally I realized what it could do. UGH I'm rambling. Anyways, sorry for the obscenely long absence, I had to do a COMPLETE and TOTAL overhaul both mentally and artistically. ALL criticisms are welcome. 
                I hope you look forward to a lot more, there is a dump truck of other stuff I will post shortly.

Ok, all of these on the ipad? What apps for drawing/painting are you using. Are you using a stylus pen? How are you acheiving the thick to thin line? I thought the ipad pens couldn't do pressure sensitivity? or does it fake? Anyways i'm totally rethinking purchasing an ipad because of these images...tell me more?!?!

YO DON FLORES WHATS UP LOVE YOUR BLOG OKAY LETS GET DOWN TO BUSINESS..... Alright, So here's the deal. All you need is... an ipad 3 or 4. The only apps I use are Arte Rage, Sketchbook Pro, and Pro create. ALTHOUGH, there are some SWEET apps coming out now. So do some homework. And for the stylus, I do have a pressure sensative one. I use a POGO COnnect, its pricey, and a bit weak. I already went through one, but then again I'm a klutzy idiot and dropped it like 60 god damm times. Also, get a 13 TARGUS stylus. they are actually AWESOME. If you take the plunge, it will take some time. It took me a year to REAAALLLLYYYY Learn how to take something from start to finish but nevertheless, it'll pay off. They stylus' have a REALLY FAT TIP. I only like it because it keeps my lines SUPER LOOSE. It literally saved my drawings. It'll run you up a fair bit, like, 800 in total maybe? Anyways, anymore questions I'd be happy to ask. LOVE YOUR STUFF, Man...
