Ratings and Reviews
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.
Awesome drawing and painting app
I have tried several drawing and painting apps but keep coming back to this one. (I have not tried Procreate or Adobe Fresco but am eager to. Anyway, I am writing this principally to address the complaint several people have voiced about only having two layers. I'm not sure it they are using a demo version, or maybe it used to be that way, but I have 15 layers in a drawing I did yesterday and it still runs smoothly on my iPad 7th or 8th (don't remember) gen basic model with 1st gen Apple Pencil.
It also handles watercolors, inks, oils more realistically than any other programs I have used thus far.
If anyone from the creator company happens to read this, one feature I would love is water. As in: put water on your brush (instead of paint) and apply to "paint" on the "paper" to lighten/dilute/blend it. App has great and pretty realistic watercolor blending, but would be nice to get effect with "water" on the brush in addition to paint for when the paint is already on the "paper."
Also, would be nice to have text descriptions of paper types (e.g., Bristol, Strathmore rough watercolor, etc., etc.) in addition to (not instead of) the visual samples provided.
Keep up the great work!
Still exploring..needs gesture Undo
I’ve been using this app now for a few weeks and I’m enjoying the nature of the full suite of tools. There’s much to explore and endless hours of experimenting ahead. For now I’ll say I’m truly enjoying it. It’s great for conceptualizing as a designer and I can see spending hours with each tool just expressing with the different types of media.
The tools are lag free (iPad Pro 12”). The only “request” I have that I can’t seem to live without at the moment is a two-finger (gesture) tap erase function, which has become standard on many of the top art apps competing with this one. It’s just second nature at this point for many of us using Procreate or Paper to 2 finger tap to erase, so I find myself having to look for the undo button. That can become frustrating after a while if your hand is at rest and you are trying to achieve a certain style that requires accuracy with more editing (it’s just tedious and poorly located as a touch button). I did look for a way to set tools as hand gestures and found none at this point so I’m guessing it doesn’t exist (would be happy if I were wrong). Otherwise, this is an amazing app, far better than the other 3D paint apps out there. Worth it and will bring hours of enjoyment for mixed media designers or art lovers.
