Would appreciate English subtitles

I love and use the app almost daily, but the majority of Pixiv Sketch is Japanese speaking and I cannot understand what is written in posts or Sensei’s daily challenges. This makes it a bit difficult to talk to other users or participate in Sensei’s challenges. Otherwise the app is great and I’m happy to be able to post artwork and see others artworks from around the world! :-)


Great practice.

I’m a college graphic designer and this is a great app for posting quick sketches whether you are finished or not and if they are good enough I post them on my patreon - ZRAIARZ


Easy enough to use on cell phone

Tried a few drawing apps. This is by far my favorite. More selections of pen type and color. Even eraser has the same options as the pen and it's really helpful with shading.
