Layers painting styles are all different. And great.

So Layers, the iPhone painting app that lets you stack, has been out for over a week now and for me it took some time to adapt to its possibilities as well as to realise that it’s not Brushes plus layers 🙂 Others have also struggled a bit but have nonetheless come up with beautiful pieces. So far I’ve seen some new styles emerge.

Comic-style

Thierry Schiel, ‘ …strongly influenced by french comic artists of the 80s’, came up with this amazing comic-style panel:

In my case, it turns out that Layers allows me to work from foreground to background, from character to scenery which is fun if I want to concentrate on postures:

Another great piece by NetworkShadow:

Mixed-media-style

With its 8 different brush tips, Layers also seems good for a mixed style, like ThreeFive Canvas using markers and crayons together:

Dry-media-style

Many of Joseandrés paintings have this amazing dry brush quality:

I also love Matt Connors‘ art:

(BTW Matt shares some great background stories about his paintings over at Just iPhone Art)

This is just a small and incomplete selection, so make sure you dive into the Layers pool right away.
