Customer Reviews

Realistic brushstrokes, minimal content

Josh, App Reviewer

I am delighted by this app it's feel it is tremendously realistic. A wide variety of paper types, frames, backgrounds yet not so much of brushes and colours. I think for this app to be perfect if just a few more properties were developed under each brushes, colours to pick from that match the canvas or work space. Besides that awesome work worth every penny!

Great app for Chinese traditional painting artist

Tao xu

Finally. I got my Chinese traditional brush on iPad pro. I am So excited. You can draw Chinese painting and writing Chinese calligraphic work now. I waiting this long time ago. Thanks app developer .

Just one thing is need more Chinese trading painting color ,then will be perfect.

Bit disappointed


I liked the first Zen brush, so the increased undo functionality was appealing. But I have to say I prefer the feel of the brushes in the older version, the flow and line quality. For the price this app delivers little extra functionality (for those without a stylus). And everyone is asking for a zoom option, please add!
