Animator Shawn Harris' clip illustrates how versatile the app is--it looks simple, but there's a singing skeleton, a ballerina dancing in the snow, a drawing of Snoop Dogg and spray cans painting the frame with color.
Harris drew individual frames and recorded each separately, then emailed them to himself, opened the file on a viewer application then exported the sequence as a movie file. "Each time I lifted my finger from the canvas a new frame was recorded," he said. "Thirty brush strokes later, and I created one second of video. About 7,000 strokes later, i would have a completed music video, so I kept drawing," he explained.
