Fascinating and he doesn't have to wait for the paint to dry! Of course, this could also been done with a stylus and PC..but it might freeze in the middle!

I don't know if you've created any artwork with a stylus, Tabor, but in my experience there is a massive difference between drawing on a tablet while you look at a screen versus looking and drawing simultaneously at the same surface.

It took me YEARS to learn pen-like control of my stylus/Wacom combination, whereas it took me about a week to learn how to feel comfortable painting on my iPad (I use Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, though, instead of Brushes -- I've love to see someone do a head-to-head comparison!).

Of course, some artists with really comfortable budgets get to use those Cintiq tablets that are tablet/display all in one, but I've never been that lucky. My office only supplies me with the non-display version of the tablet.
