In my view, to really turn my iPad into a professional drawing tablet, I need an app to do one of two things: Allow me to work directly in Photoshop or Illustrator - If we're talking real work, then I almost don't even want a new app. Let me use the iPad's awesome technology and UX to draw with the professional tools I already use, just like a Wacom tablet.Give me vector or give me death - If a professional drawing app wants to live solely on the iPad, that's fine, but it has to churn out vector art that I can export to Illustrator.

Art Glossary: What is Mark Making? As you explore painting, you might hear art professors, painting instructors, or book authors talk about 'mark making.'
