Check out this awesome stage-by-stage run through of the creation of iPad artwork 'Boat Trouble' by Nikolai Lockertsen aka Nikko. As one of the leading iPad artists in the world, Nikko also works as a matte painter, concept artist and art director in TV and movies.

We will leave the fate of the boatman and villagers down to your imagination.
