iPad painting is still in it's infancy and I think people need a lot of exposure to it before it's widely accepted as a legitimate medium. Generally feedback for my work is overwhelmingly positive but some will just be from the school were it's not "real" art. To them I would have to argue that it is. The iPad makes some things easier (layers, materials, undo, blending) but it is not easy to master. I literally had to relearn how to draw to use it effectively. It takes talent to do it well. If my iPad was a crutch or if it somehow did the work for me I would be cheating myself as an artist.
