Express your artistic side without filling the spare room with easels and art supplies. Art Set 4 turns your iPad into a digital canvas where you can use felt markers, oil paints, watercolors, and more. Each feels true to life: Watercolors glide with a swipe of your finger (or Apple Pencil), while oil paints build up with each stroke.

I’ve used a lot of art programs, including Photoshop, Corel Painter and Procreate. The lack of realism of the brushes has bothered me. It feels like this program has brought back some of the joy of painting for me (without the mess). I especially like the squishy and subtle versions of oil paints… the various depths of paint is nice. I also like the watercolors. They have some of the watery “bleed” that they do in Adobe Fresco, though I haven’t figured out the rough edges and splatter in the pagoda demo painting, which I really want to do. Please more colors of metallic paint, and maybe some non-glitter metallics and brighter light metallics, maybe some “crazy” stuff like “rusty paint” that gives a chunkier texture or a paint with light dusty speckles in it… also some more subtle palette colors like the skintone colors and versions of those colors as saturated darks. I would love more watercolor brush types. I would recommend this app to any artist who wants to do natural-looking media on iPad. It has more brushes that have realistic effect than any program I’ve seen. It is clear that they didn’t just create a brush engine and then try to recreate every media through that engine, but actually tried to figure out how to give each media type as authentic a look and feel as they could.

So many way to make great art!

I am loving this app. At first I didn’t understand how powerful it was. The paid version is really awesome and for the price, worth every penny. I cannot believe how many options and how flexible this app is in allowing me to do things I would value in procreate and sketchbook pro but, with much richer paint textures. I love the 3D paint textures and the ability to create depth with the paint and not just the shadows. Please keep supporting this app. It really is wonderful and I hope that more people find it and enjoy what it offers. There is so much room to be creative. I am also enjoying the ability to import photos, the cut function, the layers, the layer settings, well…there just so much to work with that it’s so easy to be creative and also paint with what I think are the hands down BEST paint textures I have been able to find in an iPad app. The textures is what got me to purchase the app, the other capabilities are what are keeping me using it everyday. There is also a help section where they have posted an easy to read documentation. Once you go through that, the app becomes soooo easy to use and figure out. I also wanted to add that yes, you can make a square frame and the sizing is flexible which I love.
