CopyIt - An Essential Tool That Every Illustrator And Artist Should Have

in Productivity (F)

[] Brisbane, Queensland/Australia - Independent developer Nigel Green has announced the immediate availability of his latest update to CopyIt - The Grid Drawing Method for iOS. Using the same technique Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh used to retain proportions, CopyIt is an invaluable tool for artists and illustrators. With the latest update comes the addition of 5 filter effects and a new user interface. The 5 new filter effects are: Negative Color, Greyscale, Negative Greyscale, Outline and Negative Outline.

Not only for artists, CopyIt can be used by anyone holding a pencil and paper and an iOS device. A grid is placed over an image that is loaded from the user's Photo Album, breaking the image down into small easily manageable work areas. Adjusting the grid size to suit the subject, the user then draws up the same number of grid squares with a pencil on another medium such as paper or canvas. Referring to each square in turn, the user copies what they see. If a different size result is desired then the pencilled grid is drawn larger or smaller on the medium than the original grid size on the device. All that matters is that the contents of each square are copied to scale.

Several artists have commented on CopyIt and how it has helped make their work easier. One user said "This should be in every artist's box. One of the best prep tools that any illustrator and artist should have... I've cut my prep time in half" and another said "This is the best of the apps for drawing gridlines. As a professional artist, I find it useful on a daily basis".

"I am pleased that so many professional artists are finding CopyIt to be an essential part of their workflow" said developer Nigel Green.
