At the rear of Sony's CES 2013 booth this year something truly inspired resided: beautiful works of art created on touch-screen tablets.
Artists David Kassan and April Wong spent the majority of their time at the show drawing portraits on the Sony Vaio Duo 11 hybrid tablet PC and the Sony Tap 20. To create the fascinating digital images, Kassan and Wong used ArtRage, a feature-rich drawing program for Windows, Mac, and iOS devices.
I watched as Wong -- who works for Sony's retail arm in California -- created a beautiful female subject with each swipe of a special digital pen (included with each Vaio Duo 11). The canvas option within the program produced a wonderful paper effect for her to work with, and I couldn't help but feel awe as she blended colors as if they were real paint. She spent about 30 minutes drawing this girl, with most of her digital creations taking around that long or up to an hour to complete.
