Editors' Notes

From quick conceptual sketches to fully finished artwork.

Used to be my go to app for art, but new update has made me rethink


The new update which adds a lot of new brushes and changes the interface is alright. The new brushes are interesting and fantastic, but performance issues are major. Every brushstroke takes about a second to load. I think it’d be better if all the new interface was dropped and instead built into the old one. It’s really shaking off a lot of my old habits, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but this new overhaul seems unnecessary. What happened to quickly being able to rotate the canvas and going to the gallery with a pinch of a finger? And what happened to autosaving? I personally think it’s all taken a bit of a nosedive. Please bring back the old features that made this app so great, but definitely keep the new brushes and textures. Let me know if there’s anything being done to fix this.



I have only just started drawing digitally and I have to say this is way better than any program I have come across, it’s simple, easy to use, and while photoshop may have more shapes and options, this has far more brushes and textures, I would choose this any day, not to mention you can link this app to your devientart account and upload directly from the app!!, the only thing I am a little disappointed over is the fact that you can transfer work from one device to another, that’s the only thing missing to make this app perfect.
