The Most Realistic Painting App

This is the most realistic painting app in the App's a shame it isn't being developed anymore 😞. The list of bugs is long, but it has incredible potential and phenomenally realistic output.
I've been looking for a painting app that emulates real paint and its 3d quality, which is both stable and well supported and outputs in high Rez. At this point I've already spent about $50, and I still don't have what I need:
$4.99 Tayasui Sketches+
$4.99 Inspire
$9.99Inspire Pro
$6.99 Art Set Pro
$4.99 Pixelmator
$ .99 Procreate Pocket
$5.99 Procreate
$free MyBrushes Pro(iPhone)
$2.99 MyBrushes Pro(iPad)
$ .99 ASKetch
$1.99 ArtRage(iPhone)
$4.99 ArtRage(iPad)
$2.99 Sketch Club
Other apps are good for illustrators and cartoon artist, but they all have a flatness in their end result(which isn't a bad thing), Minus ArtRage(low Rez), Art Set Pro(even lower Rez). I appreciate that this doesn't have layers, just like on a real canvas. It helps to commit and really challenges the artist. Hopefully more people will get this app so that the developer will continue supporting the app again, cause it really has potential.

Intriguing, Seductive, Incredible

No it isn't perfect, but it is absolutely delicious, and it has a tremendous amount of potential. This is a seriously ambitious and intelligent app.
I am a painter, BFA from RISD, MFA from Pratt, and I am wowed. Psykopaint is pure pleasure.
The effects are beautiful, both when working from a blank canvas, and when painting with a photograph. What has been accomplished is impressive. I like the color picker, palettes and the brushes.
You can used your own photo, pulling color from the source image, following the form with realistic, adjustable brush strokes, exclusively, or draw and change color, and the composition. The fluidity of the tools for drawing and painting is remarkable.
It is usable, as is, and with the additional in-app brushes purchase, it is terrific.
Initially, I was skeptical about the cost, but after trying the tools out, within the app, I was happy to buy them.
The developers are sincere and responsive. This is a fine piece of work, and a very intriguing app.
Bravo to the creators.

Simply beautiful.

This is a beautifully designed app, especially for art students or those who treat art as a profession. It is calibrated very well, follows your finger strokes accurately and hence, allows you to produce splendid works.

The main reason why I haven't given it full stars is because I believe the file size is much too large! I understand high quality apps usually require more space but I believe one app occupying up to 800mb is simply too much! I hope this can be improved on in the near future.
