The Samsung Galaxy Note series were not the first devices to come with a stylus, but they were the first to truly make the feature popular on a modern platform like Android…

seriously? they don't look amazing. come on phonearena. there are far more beautiful sketches in the gallery of one android sketching app (forgot the name, will search). there should be a few note 3 users who've posted their creations there.

There are much better collection than what they gave here. Infact that's some bad sketches!

Samsung Pen.UP app.


You can side-load the pak to any device and view the gallery. Amazing collection.

They aren't really that great. I've done better with Procreate on my iPad.

Art is subjective, and your ideas of what constitute either good or bad art are merely your own opinions.

Really nice! I have both the Note 1 and 2, and although I'm not an artist, I have dabbled on doing some doodling on my Notes. I have seen other people make short comic strips from their Notes by taking screenshots of their artwork and uploading them (each screenshot is a comic panel). When the Note first came out, I remember people calling it gimmicky and just plain too big, but the Wacom S-Pen and large screen size is perfect for doing drawings and sketches.

All 10 together don't come close to the Morgan Freeman drawing on the iPad.

Agreed, this was a pretty shi**y list IMO. There are far better sketches out there with the SGN series phones.

I've done better on my iPad Mini than most of these. I copied one but some of these are also copies and don't look good.

But on the same hand how many hours were spent making that drawing on the iPad vs the time spent on these drawings? I'd hazard a guess at hundreds of hours on Morgan Freeman vs a couple of hours on these. Check my earlier reply to savagelucy for done of my drawings on a Note2 & Note10...most took me a day or two but one of them took me a couple of months, can you guess which? I'd bet you can.

I believe the first note was unveiled in 2011, not 2010. 2010 was the year the first Galaxy S was launched

Absolutely, thanks for the correction.

Even the worst drawing was made by an artist who has skills that far exceed mine. Props to those who can turn the Note screen into a personal canvas.

Exactly. I can't create art that good with a pencil and paper. I can't imagine trying on something like a screen.

It's not as hard as you might think...check my reply to savagelucy earlier for some of the stuff I've done on a Note2 & Note10...most of them were done in a day or two with the exception of the fairies which took a couple of months

One reason why the note series is simple a plus to smartphones. Smoothness is over-rated.

Not one of these pieces is "amazing"...

These are some sketches I've made on either a Note2 or a Note10.1...while these are pretty neat as art done with technology, which many people seem to think are mutually exclusive, I think even I've done better than a couple of these (not knocking these artists in any way, just pointing out that there are amazing works if at out there that PA could've chosen that would've better pointed out how awesome this device series is)...mine were all done with the Autodesk Sketchbook apps...either SketchbookMobile or Sketchbook for Galaxy.

Nice drawings! I can't even imagine how much time that takes or how frustrating it could be with that stylus.

It's surprisingly frustration-less...it's almost the exact feel of pen/pencil & paper minus the actual paper texture. The warriors & fairies were done on a Note10 whereas the others were done on a Note2 & with the exception of said fairies, which took about 2 mos to finish, most of them only took a day or two while I was at work showing off the tablets/phones.
