If you already use an art app for envisioning variations in your traditional art or for creating digital art, then you already know how much fun it can be. However, if this is entirely new, you can discover its joys and usefulness by seeing this demo. You can learn a lot either by just watching, or by bringing your mobile phone or tablet and experimenting as you follow along.
