Amazing app but something changed it...

An artist.

So I am quite an editor And as well I do digital art. I've been looking for quite some time for an app that I can edit with that is free and gets the job done with editing, and finally I found one! It was Ibis Paint X, I love editing especially with an app that doesn't call for money, until I found out for the new update. The new update threw me off... From when erasing and all the brushes have changed which I do not like. When erasing the brush gets bigger which I do not like. For smaller areas you would need to go down in a straight line (like If you were in a street) and the street went onto the houses and you just need a little brush to get some of the little paint off the houses, well that used to happen... But now you can't, the brush will be small then get bigger and bigger, so that's what I do not like. As well as the brushes, the brushes... Ah let's see here, well the brushes don't have their same style anymore really, like the Pin dip and the Airbrush they both have the dark opacity Now instead of when back then the airbrush would Be lighter and all and you could go over and over again until you like the opacity you get. Honestly I think this app is awesome and amazing, but I just hope they can fix this so when making art, things won't bother you as much. So this is why I am giving this app a four star out of five.

I’m simply stunned.


I have been on a search for an efficent, free art program for a while. Some backstory: I am an aspiring young artist, and I have yet to get a drawing tablet. I experimented with several art programs on my laptop, such as FireAlpaca, MediBang, Gimp, MS Paint, etc. But without a drawing tablet none of them are useful. I have an iPad, so I decided to look for an art program that I could install. I stumbled across ibisPaint on a social media platform, and I couldn’t beleive what my eyes saw. Free. Available for apple devices. So I installed it.
My artwork and life has never been the same again. I gained friends from the artwork in my locker, done in this program. I’ve gained followers on that social media platform, and I’m at 300+ now. For just my artwork, done using ibisPaint. It’s so simple, and it’s free, I can use all the brushes freely (watching those ads is always worth it!) and transferring traditional drawings to digital is easy. I’ve recommended it to others plenty of times. This is a program I’ll always use, even when I get a drawing tablet. Infact, I will make sure I get this program on the drawing tablet I get.
Six stars out of five.

Lot To Offer!


This app really does have quite a lot to offer as far as choice of pallets and patterns and raw-pure creativity. There are a few things that could be improved and added, however I haven’t seen a comparable app yet that is-FREE! That’s what sets this up and out the most from any other one in the App Store. The fact that it is a free download and you can have access to their entire broad range of brushes and schemes and tools all by watching just one advertisement. Literally just by watching one 30second advertisement unlocked everything for 18 hours! That’s pretty fair, actually it’s more than generous. It did take me just a little time to figure it out and how to use it but it became a breeze after just taking a few minutes to figure out how it all worked. Really good job to the creators and definitely do look forward to experiencing what these developers do with this app. Is it for everyone? Well you’ll have to download it and give it a shot. Who know you might be like me and get surprised by how well this app functions. Definitely recommend using a “pen” or stylus because it enhances everything quite perfectly. 👍
