    Hello fellow MacRumors members! I recently discovered a fun way to spice up my iPhone- drawing on it! I draw on it in pencil and it all washes off. I keep a clear case on it to preserve the drawing and prevent it from smearing. I'm currently still rockin' the Charizard. Hope you guys enjoy! I'm sure I'll get my fair share of "are you crazy?!" comments :D

    WOW!!! Really nice work. Did you just use a normal pencil for this?

    Wow, that's actually pretty cool. The pencil doesn't scratch the metal though?

    Just a normal mechanical pencil, yes! Also Dean, the graphite is way too soft to scratch the aluminum :) It's super soft when you draw onto the surface, I love it.

    Wow, nice idea :) I don't have a iPhone5, but I might try this on my MacBook Pro, seeing as it's aluminium too. Only problem is it smudging off :(

    Wow, that's fantastic work (especially the Charizard one). It never occurred to me that I could draw with pencil on the aluminum. Maybe I'll start doing this.

    Question though, how do you clean it off to put a new design?

    Erase it, clean it water ... you can even lick it.

    I'd probably go with the water one though.

    Real nice, especially liking the shading done to the apple logo. Do an entei next, the charizard looks fierce.

    Nice to see so many Pokemon fans here! I actually didn't shade the logo, that's just the reflection :) Thanks!

    That is some awesome artwork. What a genius idea. Wish I was that talented. Keep posting some more of your work. I am sure there are a lot of people around here that would enjoy seeing it.

    If someone I knew was that good at drawing I would definitely try and get something drawn then put back protector on and pray it doesn't smear.


    Amazing work.
