Definitely recommend it

So hard!!!!

I loving drawing by hand but sometimes I like drawing digitally and I don’t have a computer that can properly allow me to draw with a good free painting program. This app I feel offers enough features to fill my needs and after using it for three days while working on a character from my book I’m writing. I’m honestly enjoying it.

Having the layers really help because I can start out with a sketch first without taking hours and hours.

I saw myself reading other peoples reviews saying they couldn’t find the paint bucket tool. If your using IOS it’s easy to find. But I never used that tool once and I only using the pencil, high lighter and spray to fill in my work.

Apps nowadays make you pay to actually have the full thing or it’s litter with adds ruining the experience. This app however! Is 100% free.

With that being said, if you have experience with digital art, I would definitely say this app is for you. Simple to understand, very well handle and just food in general.

I don’t take the time to sit down and write a review but this app deserves it.

Where’s the Paint Tool?

Breathe The Memes

I haven’t been on this app for about a whole year, but coming back to it, I have one question: Where’s the paint bucket tool? It’s really useful, and I don’t know why you removed it. If it’s not removed, then where is it? Trust me when I say this, but I LOVED this app when I first got it, but now, after two years have passes, I have no idea what is happening with the ap. It was fine before the updates where there! Sure the collaborations and hashtags were great, but was it really necessary to remove the paint bucket tool? It’s now really hard for me to draw. Just one more thing before I end this: Are you able to add “Correction” like how MediBang and Fire Alpaca do? It would be really helpful for the app! That’s all I really need to say.

I love it, some problems


yes, i realize that the process in updating the app takes time but it has been about month since i was last told to update Sketch when i go to do collabs with other people i get notifications saying " Sorry This sketch was created in a newer version of sketch, please update the app to open the sketch." Also using IOS a new software was added to the app i happen to be missing features like the paint can and ellipse tool overall the app is amazing and I will continue using it!
