Ways to Create an Image with iPad

Here's a list of different apps we can use to create or adapt an image with an iPad. Some apps have been reviewed by Susan Stephenson at www.thebookchook.com

Review: iPad App, Assembly

What is the iPad app, Assembly, all about? "Assembly is an iPad/iPhone app that we can use to create an image. I think it’s a great app to use in an educational context because it means kids are making their own images rather than navigating the minefield of finding an image online, and ensuring they have permission to use it."

Children's iPad App, EyePaint MyDIARY
EyePaint MyDIARY is an app by developer, Curious Hat. I've previously reviewed Curious Ruler by Curious Hat. Basically this app offers kids several templates. Once the child taps on an area in a template, the camera button appears and whatever texture, pattern or colour the child aims at, appears in that space once the button is clicked.

Moku Hanga

You've discovered the fascinating art of Moku Hanga, the Japanese method of wood-block printing. Breathtaking landscapes, beautiful women, and busy cityscapes can be transformed into this exotic art known for flowing hand-chiseled outlines and brushed on color.

The Moku Hanga app, Moku the Japanese word for “wood” while hanga is known as “print”, allows you to create an artistic wood-block print from any picture or snapshot — no need for time consuming carving — the artists from JixiPix do all the work for you! With the power to fully customize your Moku Hanga, you can create a masterpiece artistic enough be part of printmaking history!

The outlines in Moku Hanga are extremely eye catching, replicating a hand chiseled relief-art. Using sliders found on the adjust tab you can control the smoothness, width and strength of the chiseled outline to fit your composition.

Presets are also available to give your project a quick start. Choose from a range of bold chisled outlines, and bright to subtle color combinations. If the preset colors chosen for your work are not to your liking, there is the option to alter your palette colors. Once the desired color is achieved complete your artwork with an artistic edge or paper. In printmaking the final image does rely on the choice of paper; whether it is kozo fibers or rice paper — this will add an artistic quaility to your print and complete your Moku Hanga.

Moku Hanga Features:

•The Multi-Block style uses 5 blocks of color pulled from your original image then divides the colors across your artwork giving the look of carving a separate woodblock for every color. The cool thing about this style is the ability to "Randomize Colors" throughout your artwork and the ability to replace any or all of these colors, using the full-spectrum color picker. You can achieve simple to exaggerated color results using this process.
