Camera Lucida is different from other drawing apps. You don’t draw directly on your iPad or iPhone. It uses the camera feature to create a translucent image on your device that guide you through the drawing session. You’ll need to set up your iPhone or iPad (see video) so the camera displays your sketch paper fully on the screen of your device. You can then pick an image from your photo library and apply the filter that best aid you in your drawing. Adjust the opacity just right so you can see your drawing utensils right on the screen of your device. Now, you just need to trace everything you see on the screen to complete a drawing. If you have any interest in drawing, be sure to pick up this app during its one day promotion!
