Finger painting on the iPhone and iPod has become something of a phenomenon. I've been painting digitally for a long time, all I've ever use on a computer is a wacom pen and tablet. Then I discover how to paint on ipad with finger, stylus. But today I just discover something that might be super cool! A brush, an actual brush with bristol for ipad. It’s made with a long handle and soft bristles.
I have not try it out yet because it is still not available until Feb 2011. I think it should be fun, but I wonder how responsive and precise it would be. I would suspect that it would probably be a bit harder to handle than a stylus. Just like when you handle a real pencil and a brush, I can get more precision easier with pencil. But on a brush, it takes a while to get it to behave the way you want it to. But anyhow, I am really excited.

I cannnot wait to get my hand on this brush! Sweet right?

Yea that's pretty cool. I think in a way ill prefer to use a pen over it because of the diffculty factor. But then its for an ipad not pc so thats pretty awesome in fact.

Also thanks for the download :D

@ Knuckle & Chris Yeah, just had a small talk with Jim Scott (the guy who made sketch club app) then I have a second thought, I just realize that pen stylist probably has more precision than brush thingy. Brushes are good when you have do deal with real wet thick paint or ink on the bristles. Moreover, you can be accurate because when it is wet, the tip become more pointy. But brush with out paint, I cannot really see the point. I will try it out anyway because of the cool factor. ;-)
