• Susan — I love the final bowl of fruit. You’re so talented. Are you familiar with Jacquie Lawson greeting cards http://www.jacquielawson.com? When you receive on of their e-cards the images open up just the same way. They are based in the U.K. but you could just as easily do them.

    • Hi Jeannette, What a very kind thing to say. I am familiar with and am a great fan of Jacquie Lawson. To be honest, I hadn’t thought about that as a possibility. I will take that under serious consideration. 🙂

  • Rick Salas

    Wow, this is a really amazing post that network marketers can use in business. Problem is that so many people never take time away from their busy schedule to see what some apps can do for them. This explains everything in an easy way that people can clearly understand. Thanks for the share Susan!


  • Gina

    You might just talk me into getting that app! I don’t like paying for them… so I have been delaying. 🙂 Very well done.

    • I have definitely gotten my moneys worth. It’s pretty inexpensive on time cost with regular updates. Check it out. If you have any questions my consultation fees are really cheap… as in free… LOL

  • I love watching how you put your drawings together. I never tire of it. 🙂 The finished products are always fabulous!

    • Ahhh, Thanks for such a nice compliment. It means a lot to me. PS: I’m planning more of this type of post in the future. 🙂

  • Susan Oakes

    Love the way you show how to do it with the explanation as it makes it so much easier to understand what to do. Jeannette mentioned the ecards and I think you could earn money with your drawings or even showing others how to do it.

    By the way I can’t seem to log into Disqus when commenting here.

    • Hi Susan, Thanks so much. It is certainly something to think about. I’ll check to see if there is an issue with Disqus. Thanks for the heads up. 🙂

  • Jo-Anne

    I found this to be very interesting but now I want an orange…………….lol

  • Hi Rick, Thank you. I had hope that It was made clear enough. I am so glad you found it to be the case. :-), Susan

  • Lubna

    Susan, you make it sound so simple. Alas, I have two left feet (when it comes to dancing) and lots of thumbs (including a green thumb) when it comes to creativity like this.
    PS: Am having trouble posting again, retrying

    • Hi Lubna, Ah, I think you more creative then you think. You draw beautiful pictures with your words… just saying.

      Sorry for the trouble, not sure why. We will check it out. 🙂

  • What a good idea!! Would try it out if I had an iPad:-)

    • Hi Catarina, I bet you would have fun doing it too. 🙂

  • Simply amazing, Susan. I would not have the patience to create this! You are very gifted. And after viewing your wonderful art, I’m suddenly hungry – off to grab some fruit!

    • Hi Natasha, Thanks for visiting. I am so glad you enjoyed my creations and will come visit again very soon. 🙂

  • Doreen Pendgracs

    So very cool, Susan. Thanks for showing us the process, layer by layer. That is truly fascinating, and encouraging to those of us who have no artistic talent. (that would be me!)

    • Hi Doreen, You’re so welcome. It has been such a fun discovery and endeavor for me. I’m very pleased you enjoyed it. 🙂

  • Too bad I don’t have an iPad.

    • Ah, you have the a ability to create beautiful things through your craft. 🙂

  • I love the colors! So cool and creative. I want to create my own. Now all I need is an iPad. I have a Droid tablet now so no iDraw for me 🙁

    • Thank you. You know, I believe there are vector drawing programs for a Droid tablet that would be great fun to try. 🙂

  • Oh….That’s so pretty Susan. Now I think I need to have an iPad too. 🙂

    • Thanks Priti, When I create am image it feels like drawing on paper when using my iPad. 🙂

      • Guest

        That’s great, even I love art…will definitely try one.

  • Priti

    Oh….That’s so pretty Susan. Now I think I need to have an iPad too. 🙂

    • Thanks, I do love my iPad because of this. 🙂

  • HB

    This is totally cool! I love how you explained the process and the different layers. I didn’t know that was possible. It also helps that you have some talent. LOL

    • Thanks HB, The layering along with coping and pasting a created an image is one of the many features I love about a vector drawing tool. 🙂

  • You are very talented when it comes to drawing online! Great compositions and great re-use of the objects in different manners.

    • You made me blush…I very much appreciate the compliment. 🙂 This was a fun post to do. 🙂

    • You made me blush…I very much appreciate the compliment. 🙂 This was a fun post to do. 🙂

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    That’s amazing! Sadly, I can’t draw at all and doubt technology would help me. But I do have an ipad.

    • Thanks. Give it a try, you may amaze yourself. The programs are cheap and fun to use. The best part is, if you don’t like what you’ve created you can delete it. 🙂

  • wendy mccance

    Wow, you have so much talent. I love how you showed the step by step process. Very cool.

    • Ah, thanks. It was a really fun project. My illustrations have become a halmark of my blog. I plan to do other demo’s like this from time to time in the future. 🙂

  • pranaynigotiya

    hi Susan, this post shows the creative side of your personality and definitely looks interesting and fun. Also the step by step explanation by you is appreciable. Will try it on my sisters ipad.

    • Than Pranay, It is really fun and challenging at the same time. Have fun with this and let me about your creations. 🙂

  • Bethany Lee

    Wow! This is the first tutorial I have seen, Susan, and you do a darn good job!! There’s a lot of work in that bowl of fruit. 🙂
    I don’t have an iPad, so I won’t be able to try this, but it was pretty cool seeing what you do to make your art. How cool is that? I bet you could have a whole blog just on this.

    • Thanks, I had thought about making this into a blog but it’s very labor intensive and I am still developing my craft and skill set. Who knows, I may figure it out and make a go of it.

  • This is very cool! I don’t have an iPad, but maybe I can create the same effect on my desktop?

    • You can. iDraw has an iPad version and a Desktop version as well. If you give it a try, have fun with it.

  • Anne Stone

    Lovely clear demonstration, I love the finished pictures. I am currently fundraising for an ipad for my autistic daughter, if I get one we’ll have to come back and read all your demonstrations.

    • Thanks Anne, Good luck with your fundraising and getting an iPad for your daughter. 🙂

  • Janelle

    Cool. We are thinking of getting an iPad, actually.

  • Susan, I just heard about Idraw and when I googled it, you popped up. How nice is that. Within the next couple of weeks I’ll be back to check on parts one to three. This is so clearly illustrated that I’m sure I’ll be able to learn how to do it.
    PS – do you need an iPad or can I do this on my laptop?

    • How cool it that Lenie. I’ve not google myself that way so this was a nice surprise. If I can offer some help, don’t hesitate to reach out.
