Amazing app! Suggestions
This art app is so great!! I’ve been using it for about a year now and I love just about everything about it. I’ve used other digital drawing apps in the past (like Medibang), but this is the app I found the highest liking to. This app is so, so good, and I’m definitely going to be using it for a long while.
There are some things that could be added to this. One thing is a pen tool. Not the actual brush, but the tool were you can tap, make points that you can shape to lines curves. This is a great tool for line art and could be VERY useful to users on here. Another thing that could be added is for users to be able to create their own selection of brushes. We can only have one already created pin at a time, but a lot of us mix different brushes from other pins. Like I almost always use the Inking Pen, Fountain Pen, Colorless Round Brush, Hard Eraser, Hair Brush, Airbrush, Pencil Pal, and the Synthetic Round Bristle Brush in each of my works, and they almost all come from different pins. It would be helpful if we didn’t have to go searching for certain brushes each time we want them.
This really, really is a great drawing app, and I definitely recommend it to people who may or even may not try it out. I hope my two small suggestions help, as they could be helpful to other users and myself. I love this app so much! Can’t wait to see what other great things come out of it.
Love it! But please add tools
I absolutely love this app! It’s by far the best free drawing app out there... it has so many tools and features, and preset colors are really handy. It’s also really easy to edit with, surprisingly. So it does more than just draw with a little help of copy and pasting of layers. My phone has a pretty small screen, (iPhone 5s) but with a stylus, it’s actually pretty easy to draw real art. And it has so many brushes. And the app runs super smoothly on my phone. And a bonus, no annoying ads. No in-app purchases. I absolutely love that, and is yet another reason why I love this app. I also really love the design of the app, once you get the hang of what it can do it’s so easy. And the clean minimalist appearance is really nice. My recommendation for future updates, there isn’t really a way to just blend colors. Sure there are brushes with that affect, but it would be so helpful if there was a blender that just blurred the colors together instead of smearing them; a brush that isn’t supposed to resemble any real-life brush. If you could add that it would be so helpful! Also when I save a drawing to my camera roll, the quality is reduced from what it was in the app, So normally I just screenshot my art instead. But if you could fix this issue I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for this amazing app. I definitely recommend.
My favorite art app :>
I have used lots of art apps but this one is my ultimate favorite :>. I really like this app and I use it a lot for my art. I’m not really sure the reason I like this app so much, it might be because it has a nice loose/free feel like the way I draw. All I know is that different artists have different styles and like different art apps (if they use art apps), so look around and find an app that works for you! Just keep trying and you’ll find what works best for you :>.
Just some suggestions for things to add to this app are an option to have a grid on the canvas to help you line things up (if this is already a feature and I just can’t find it then sorry, I'm being dumb). I don’t know why, but when I draw on paper with grids or lines my art looks better than on paper without a grid. I think it helps me line up my art and see where I should put parts of my art :>. Another thing that would be a great addition to this wonderful app is the “fill” option filling in lines that are on a separate layer. I like to keep my layers really separate (like, REALLY really) so it would be great if this was a feature :>. It doesn’t need to be, though, just a suggestion.
Thank you to the fantastic developers and the company who made this app, I really enjoy it and hope you keep up the good work!! :D
