Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable app for hobby artists
I was recommended both this app and its sister title app (The Artist Magazine) from a friend.
Very simple to download (I downloaded straight to my iPad within Newsstand but it works on other non-Apple devices too). It comes with a free copy of the January 2012 issue too so great if you want to have a proper look at the issues first.
This title is aimed more at hobby artists (as opposed The Artist which I thought was for more experienced artists) and had a number of step by step guides, which is great for beginners / novices.
Overall this is a fantastic app and I'll recommend to other artist friends of mine.
It’s a con. It’s just an invite to pay for the magazine. While I accept that the magazine should cost, I think they should be honest and charge on the page in app store
Easy to read and to navigate around.
I enjoy my use of this very good art guide and tips magazine. It is easy to navigate around each issue and within my library.
