That Creative Rush

Astropad: A New Hope

TheTechRabbi

[vimeo 119822837 w=500 h=281] Welcome to Astropad from Astro HQ, a digital drawing tool that gives us a new hope in how inspired artists create. The touch capabilities of tablets, specifically the iPad have transformed how lovers of drawing make art. The past twenty years have seen amazing advancements in how digital art can be produced. Beginning with the Adobe Creative revolution of the late 90's, to Wacom's tablet technology of the 2000's art could be digitally created and refined, but still had its limitations. Fast forward to the creation of the iPad, a screen you could touch, which provided the means to develop incredible artistic apps like Paper 53, Autodesk's Sketchbook, and my personal favorite Tayasui Sketches. These apps have taken classic artistic processes and opened up a whole new world in how we mix together works of digital art.

Now its time for the next artistic leap forward

In comes the Astropad, which takes a massive leap forward in how we facilitate the artistic process. Astropad gives you the manipulative touch power of an iPad with the computing horsepower of a Mac to creative your own masterpiece. Artists can now use the iPad to zoom in, refine work just like drawing on paper, while keeping your Mac focused on the bigger picture.

Astropad retails for $49.99, with an educational discount for teachers and students for $19.99.

While its still a fresh technological approach to art, Astropad gives me a new hope in what is possible.
