If you're thinking, "How can I use physical accessories when I'm producing digital artwork?" To be honest, that's a really good question. Surprisingly, there are some neat little tools and peripherals that can be used with the iPad HD and your art applications in order to help you boost and hone your creative talents.

Boxwave — Capacitive iPad Stylus for painting on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch

If you really want to get started producing hand-drawn works of art then you'll need to make use of a good stylus. A stylus will act just like a pen or pencil but is made specifically for touch-screen devices. The best stylus I have come across so far is the Capacitive iPad Stylus that you can buy from Boxwave. This stylus has a rubber head on it that is rounded, giving you a great angle to see the line you are drawing as you draw it. The shaft of the pen is made from a sleek tubular metal that is easily held and has a decent weight to it. It also comes with a small clip that can be attached to a case, shirt pocket, belt loop, or a variety of other things.

The Capacitive iPad stylus measures 4.25 inches in length and around 0.25 inches in diameter. The point isn't exactly "small" but its rounded edge will allow you to see virtually anything under it. This also comes in handy when using drawing applications and changing to a variety of different brush and pen sizes, you will find that this pen functions very well and glides effortlessly across your device. This makes the Capacitive iPad stylus a must have for anyone who is serious about drawing on iPad. It also works very well for touching up photos via Photoshop Touch.

The Flow - By Joystickers - paint brush for painting on iPod touch, iPhone or iPad

The Flow for iPad
Let's be honest, making a watercolor or an oil-painting via the iPad probably isn't much fun with just a pen stylus. You want the feeling of a brush in your hand and "The Flow" can give you just that. This nifty little paintbrush is made by Joystickers and functions incredibly well with Apple touch-screen devices. The grip on this brush is very sleek and shaped just like an artists brush. It has real bristles that move effortlessly across the iPad's retina display to give you an amazing painting experience. This is the perfect tool if you are interested in creating "paintings" on your iOS device and it matches the brush strokes of a real painting very well. Because it is bristled at the end, you get that "painted" feeling.

There isn't really much else to say about this nifty little tool. I wouldn't recommend using it for drawing though, stick to rigid stylus pens for that. This is a painter's tool and should only be purchased if you feel like painting.

Cosmos Two-Way Portable stand for iPad

Almost every aspiring artist makes use of an easel, why should digital art be any different? The folks over at Cosmo seem to think that iPad users could benefit from one. This Mini iPad Stand looks like a table top easel with three adjustable legs. This nifty little fold up device is incredibly portable and can fit in almost any small bag. The device measures 7 inches long and 1 inch wide when its fully folded up (about the size of a normal candy bar). But just because it folds up doesn't mean its cheaply made. This stand is made with steel to ensure that it is very stable when holding your precious tablet. It can hold a variety of devices in both portrait and landscape orientations. At only $19.99, you'll have the perfect little portable easel with you at all times, no matter where your creativity may hit you.

Future Tools for painting on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch

There are a variety of iPad, iPhone and iPod painting apps and painting tools that have been developed and will be developed in future. Taking simple concepts and improving on them in order to give artists better tools to create with. In the near future we will see stylus of all different shapes and sizes, paintbrushes in a variety of shapes and bristle types, and we will see easels that stand up tall for artists that wish to paint while on their feet.

The rising popularity in digital art proves that the art world continues to evolve. In the years to come we may live in a world where "paper drawn" creations are considered archaic, and painting with actual paint may seem silly to some. If you're looking to satisfy your creative appetite but want to try a different artistic medium than maybe digital art is your calling. If you get good with it, the iPad HD can save you a mass of money on art supplies. With all of the general interest in digital art, developers and creative companies are taking notice which means that things are only going to get better.
