Extraordinary!

After years of using Zen Brush I think Zen Brush 2 is extraordinary. An amazing art program that does one thing extremely well: mimic the real-world flex and bristle spread of a sumi brush. The responsive and expressive nature of Zen brush is even more amazing with the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. The added benefits of the 5 “UNDO's” and DRY brush of version 2 makes it an outstanding addition. I love the ability to Save and Load previous drawings, add to them, and save as new artwork.
The ability to Export (Save) as PNGs with Transparent backgrounds makes it ideal for use in Procreate, Concepts, or Affinity Photo (for iPad) and use the brushwork as layer to use with layered color artwork is AWESOME.
In fact, the ONLY thing missing from this version of ZenBrush 2 is the ability to import art from Photos and use it as a springboard to create other artwork. (A single transparent layer would be perfect too.) but at least the ability to import from PHOTOS would be greatly appreciated. GREAT WORK Zen Brush team!!

Amazing program, I really enjoy it, but...

I didn’t use the original Zen Brush, so I can’t speak to that version, but this is a really strong painting program. I really love the “feeling” of the brush distortion as the the pressure changes with the Apple Pencil. I have been looking for a program like this for a while, even with ProCreate available.
THings I would like to see included in the next update would be having the addition of a pre-wet paper option, to allow the ink to drift a little or interact with the other strokes on the paper. Also, I appreciate the original colors being red and black, but what I would love is a small pallet of colors, like a medium box of crayons, maybe 16/24 colors each with the 3 options of opacity. Later on in a further iteration, adding mixing for custom colors, but now just adding a wet paper option and and a couple dozen colors would be fantastic. Great overall app.
