this surely has to be soemthing of significance, art created on a phone?

I have thought of it but never actually thought it could be done, and to a good standard aswell, lovely wings. The patterning is very realistic on them,I think certain key features like that really enable people to connect and identify images like these.

Mine is an iPod Touch, not a phone, but the same programs work on both. And they're making new ones for the iPad.

This was made using Brushes, and there's a number of other programs. I also have AutoDesk Sketchbook Pro.

You can see the few I've posted online here.

And thanks about the wings, Marco: I like the little luminous speckles and splotches.

Just a quick thought, have you ever considerd doing a flying trilobite with wings like a gliding snake or sugar glider? Were the wings are membranes of skin stretched out between two appendages on either side?

Hmm, I've started one like a helicopter, but no, that hadn't occurred to me.

Good idea, Marco!
