The Maglus Stylus Brush Tip – Painting from Dawn to Dusk

You spoke, we listened! Maglus users were keen to learn more about the Brush Tip and what exactly it can do. The post below was originally shared when the Tip launched. But it was so good, we thought we’d share it again! PLUS…Read to the end to get a FREE Brush Tip!

CAPTURING IRELAND

How many pictures could you create in a day?

We sat artist and animator Fergal Brennan down, equipped with nothing more than a brush-tipped Maglus stylus and an iPad (using Procreate app), in front of the ever changing light outside his window. His singular goal was to complete 5 minute sketches from 7am to 7pm.

How did he get on? Wonderfully! He managed to produce 65 very beautiful sketches. We were so impressed, that we convinced him to composite them into a 30 second animation, complete with soundscape. The result can be seen below, highly evocative and available to be enjoyed by anyone who would like a 30 second stroll down Sandymount Strand in Dublin, Ireland.

And the Winner is…

Chris Davies!

Paula here, that’s me in the image above with Chris’s winning entry printed on the wall of our Dublin office. Welcome to our space. Here is where the magic happens!
This competition has been lots of fun, we even got some artwork for our walls from it!

We were thrilled with the amazing response and the high standard of entries we received from our ‘Drawing Competition’. Our overall winner was Chris Davies and his excellent entry – ‘Beaky Blinder’.┬áHis ‘Beaky Blinder’ image reflects his local – Birmingham & Black Country. He turned a Wren into a character from TV show ‘Peaky Blinders’. He created the image using a Maglus on Procreate App for iPad.

We thought it was a really clever and unique idea. Well done Chris!

Helen Adams and Yvonne Foster claimed a well deserved Second and Third place.
