At the beginning of each day, Draw Every Day gives you one blank canvas and a prompt. You have 24 hours to fill that canvas up with an ink drawing. The next day, your drawing is frozen, saved, and a new blank canvas and a new prompt appears.

Every day is a new prompt, all year -- so you'll never run out of new ideas.

Draw Every Day forces you to take it slow and steady, and records your progress over days and weeks -- as time goes on, you'll see how far you've come!

• Simplicity

Draw Every Day has 6 highly-tuned drawing tools, tweaked by professional artists. You can spend your time drawing, not hunting for the perfect brush settings.

Most teachers and ateliers recommend learning to draw before learning to paint. Draw Every Day lets you learn the intricacies of black and white without the distraction of color.

For a real ink experience, you can turn off undo, redo, and the eraser tool -- every mark can be permanent, just as if you were using india ink on paper.

• Great for daily challenges

Participating in a 30-day drawing challenge like Inktober, Drawloween, or Mer-may? Draw Every Day is a perfect tool to keep yourself on track.

Pie in the sky

I went looking for a daily art prompt for sketching and this is even better than what I had been hoping for! The "one and only one daily canvas" aspect is amazing for focusing me on a simple goal, and being able to see a calendar of my success is very rewarding.

(If I could ask for one improvementin the tools, it would be to have an eraser that erased pencil marks but not ink! But I do also like the simplicity of doing everything with the smooth brush at varying widths, so I'm not fussed.)

Just what I was looking for!

I’ve been meaning to draw at least a little once a day for awhile now, and honestly. . . -it’s delightful!

Some days I take 5-10 minutes to draw as a little creative retreat. Some days I end up spending a full hour or so. I am impressed with this apps ability to serve both artistic intensities well. Basically, I forget I am using an app and focus on making my art.

The tools are intuitive so no learning curve. No distracting dials or settings, nothing gets in the way of my creative process.

BONUS: The daily prompts are a nice touch when I have artists block and a blank canvas staring back at me.

I already feel some pride and accomplishment looking at my calendar gallery view. Looking forward to seeing how I grow as an artist over time now that I am practicing daily.

Draw every day

Somewhat hard to draw with fingertip but this would improve with practice. I do like that they suggest a different pic every day!

Developer Response ,

Glad you’re enjoying it! When I draw using my fingers, I often use the stubby, messy brush; it’s low-fi, and keeps me from getting hung up on fiddly details my fingers can’t quite capture.
