Sooooo, I know Mustang was hoping to get a sense of how this kinda thing stacks up to a Cintiq, but it looks like it might be awhile before I can fill you in completely.
The only thing I can glean so far is that if the precision is always going to be the same as what I was getting from the Wacom app, a Cintiq is definitely an immediately appreciable leap forward on that front. There's a similar-but-different kind of disconnect when it comes to precision with the iPad and a regular Intuos tablet on PC, in that you're never quite 100% sure where your strokes are going to end up- but on the iPad it's more down to the hardware not really being built to do that, and on the Intous is more down to your own mental ability to translate tablet space into monitor space with accuracy (if that makes sense). With a Cintiq, the accuracy isn't perfect, but the hardware is good enough that it feels more like most of the time if you get a stroke wrong it's on you- your hand slipped, your head was in a different spot when drawing than when you calibrated it, etc.- rather than on the hardware.
Once the apps get up to speed I think the iPad will make for a decent little painting sketchbook, but I think for straight-up drawing I'll stick with pencils and paper, just because that precision doesn't seem to be quite there yet. (And I struggle enough with drawing accurately already, with my sloppy-ass butterhands.)
Maybe a process of doing a sketch in pencil, taking a photo of it with the iPad and painting it from there might be an interesting way to try to have it both ways- I'll have to try to experiment a bit.

canvas size in pixels, dpi, brush type, etc.? I'm thinking of working wholly digitally.
Can you also recommend resources for working wholly digitally?

How do I know if a picture is good enough for a portfolio to apply to an atelier program?
And should they only be life drawings? Is copying somebody else's drawing frowned upon?

Audacity would be my first guess. Depends on your setup though.

If you were talking about a charcoal pencil, then just buy a bag of single edged razor blades and a sanding pad. That's about all you need, really.
