Ratings and Reviews
This is, by far, the best art app on the App Store. I've been looking for a good digital art program for ages, and this one is my favourite. It gives you a good amount of tools, layers, colours, and other useful features, and the finished product looks amazing. I also like how this version doesn't press you over and over to get the full version. It's just like, "Hey, if you want more canvases and layers and stuff, just buy the full version! :>" It doesn't constantly remind you and take away vital tools. My only suggestion is maybe make the canvas less pixelated and blurred? It's hard to draw small things on such a pixelated canvas, and when you export them they look all blurry, like you pulled them off of Google images or something. But other than that, excellent game! I will be buying the full version once I have the money.
I love it!
I've been using this for digital art for a while now, and it's amazing. I like doing anime because I have no life and this works well with that! You can zoom in really far, there aren't brushes that you have to pay for (not that I really use that many brushes...) and they have filters! :0 Though in the free version you only get three layers, you can still work with that! Sketch, outline, throw away the sketch and background, then colour! You don't really need seventy million layers at once, just merge them! It's pretty much a mini Painttool Sai, which is helpful, since my jerk brother broke my laptop. Though you will have to play around with it to find a few features. But awesome overall.
Does exactly what I needed!
I JUST started using it and it wants my feedback, so: We couldn't get 1 year old to stick hands & feet into paint to use the prints on paper. We were able to get a quick pic, though! I was looking for an app that could convert these pics to LOOK like painted hands & feet and this app's doing it! I'm barely familiar with it and have figured out how to use the various brushes/methods of application and some other basics. It allows you to flip the image horizontally & vertically, so I'm doing this for each hand & foot in diff colors and I will have enough saved to create my project! It will look real, but it will be better than if the 1 year old cooperated since I can tweak it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
