For a while, computer generated art was just those hidden 3D optical illusions which many revered but others loathed (I, for one, have still never been able to see any of the hidden images, despite multiple hours spent fixated and frustrated).

Naturally, they weren’t for the traditionalists, who – funnily enough – preferred traditional methods of art creation: the trusty paintbrush, a well-sharpened pencil, a photo/film camera, or simply clay and a pair of hands.

But the tides have turned. Technology continues to whizz by us so fast that the artists’ paintbrushes have yet to dry, and it does seem that more and more art is now being created on portable devices, particularly tablets like the iPad Pro.

It’s clear to see why, too. The clarity and control an average Joe artist can now have on computer drawing apps would have been unprecedented just 15 years ago. For professional artists and designers, the iPad Pro is becoming a must-have piece of kit.

To show you what we mean, we’ve gathered together some of the most incredible images drawn on the iPad Pro.

James Jean

When a well-respected visual artist (heralded for his work for DC Comics, Prada, Rolling Stone, ESPN and more) got his hands on the iPad Pro, we knew the outcome was going to be outstanding. James Jean is considered one of the top fine artists working today. This was created using the Apple pencil.
