Nikko Creates Awesome Artwork With His IPad


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. In fact 'Boat Trouble' looks like something from a SciFi movie and we really want to know what is going to happen next. Will the monster crush the village? We will leave the fate of the boatman and villagers down to your imagination.
