This is an OLD VERSION from 2011, please see the NEW App 'Art Set 4', tap the LOFOPI link for more details..
This stunningly beautiful app is like having a virtual art set right inside your iPad. Paint and draw via the photo realistic interface with tools that look and feel like the real thing.
Art Set gives an alternative to complex and mechanical like paint apps for all to enjoy - artist or not! But simplicity comes without sacrificing quality, from pens to pencils, paints to pastels, each has been carefully crafted to produce natural results in real time.
The 3D textured oil paint gives amazing thick gloopy strokes or thin delicate detail via virtual pressure sensitivity.
Sparkle and glow with special metallic and fluorescent colours. Build up subtle tones and textures with oil pastels, wax crayons, coloured pencils and marker pens. Add fine detail via multitouch pinch and zoom. Choose from different paper colours and textures, or import your own photos.
The blending tools give you many ways to mix and smudge colour around on the canvas with varying effects. Create anything from smooth gentle gradients to roughly textured scratches and splatters.

Ratings and Reviews
A joy to use
Art Set is the most intuitive drawing and painting app I have used so far. I have tried quite a few drawing apps on my iPad, and this is the one I always come back to. It is simple to use and the drawing and painting tools feel like their real counterparts.
Nice but buggy
This promised to be a fine introduction to art with the Apple Pencil. My kids and wife love using the Pencil and this app, and we've all spent a good amount of time doodling, smudging and scrubbing away at the screen - often with some pleasingly convincing results. But on the iPad Pro I am sad to report that it is a buggy mess.
The app routinely crashes when you simply switch to it. It will regularly leave you staring at a spinning wheel while presumably doing something very complex and important in the background.
Opening old documents randomly gives write errors where the image in question is left in some weird limbo where the only thing you can do is delete it. Worse still is the confusing "Could not open: Could not close the currently open document" modal errors which cannot be dismissed (or, rather, you *can* dismiss them, only for them to immediately reappear).
No, sorry, I'm not paying to unlock this. As much as I would like to.
Wax crayons look real and colour seems real enough
The standard art box even has the names for the colours and thats 1 touch that you don't see had this app for a while Wax on wax off :I'm always thrilled when I open my Art Set
