Most amazing drawing app

I’m not a very serious artist but I do enjoy drawing, and want to become more serious. This is such a great app, it has all the features I would be looking for in a drawing app, and is extremely realistic. Watercolours spread, it recognises pressure of my Apple Pencil, and the paint is textured. I am very impressed, as I have also seen other people’s art, and it is flawless. I highly recommend this app, it is fantastic. ⭐️👍👏. If I may suggest one thing: It would make it even more realistic if watercolours could blend? Just a suggestion, not an improvement. Love the app, thank you 👏👏👏

Very intuitive!

I absolutely love using this ap. Don’t feel the need to keep buying art books and it’s an awesome bridge to sketch and flesh out concepts to then send to the computer to edit designs if they really need it. A couple of things I feel would make this just a bit more user friendly would be if there was a lasso tool and if there was a way to combine projects together to help with organising the projects screen. Other than that, I love the app and a must get for any beginner to advanced designers/artists.

Absolutely awesome

If you're into sketching and drawing, this is the app for you. It runs perfectly on my iPad pro and Gen 2 Apple pencil. It's probably better than using real pencils and paper in my opinion.

It's a lot more compact, lol. I can take quick sketches, at the drop of the hat, without sharpeners, arrays of pens and pencils etc. Not to mention the money I save on paper and consumables.

I like it that I can use it to work on complex projects, see where the issues are as I draw, then confidently redo that project on real paper or whatever medium I choose, knowing exactly what I'm up against.

I'm not sure about the acrylic brushes and paint, again, I guess it is good for seeing if certain ideas and colour combinations will work before you break out the brushes and paint, but painting isn't my cup of tea, so I really can't accurately comment about that.

In summary, it is a great app, and you won't be disappointed
