A pair of fresh Apple videos demonstrate that its tablets can be tools for professional artists. They show the complete creative process of several advertising posters for Apple TV+ shows done on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil.

Watch them now:

The first is called “How I Made a Dickinson Poster on iPad Pro.” In it, illustrator Janice Sung discusses the inspiration and creative process for a print ad about Apple’s show reinterpreting the life of poet Emily Dickinson.

Sung uses her tablet from beginning to end. “I’ll start by sketching on the iPad Pro, thinking of different poses that best suit Dickinson, and from there I’ll blocking in looking in the colors, figuring out the lighting,” she said.

Apple’s second video released today has the team from Phantom City Creative making two posters related to Apple TV+’s sci-fi epic, For All Mankind.

Apple says this video demonstrates for watchers “the creative process of two poster art professionals, and how they took an entire show and put it into a single image with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.”

Both Dickinson and For All Mankind are Apple TV+ exclusives. This requires a subscription to APple’s streaming service at $4.99 a month but includes access to a range of other original shows.
