i’ve been drawing digitally for a few years, and have been experimenting with drawing apps ever since. however, i keep coming back to ibisPaint. it has a flexibility and very user-friendly interface that can be tuned to your tastes. i’ll admit, the many functions and options available to me was intimidating at first, but it quickly became simple and easy to use after i took a moment to explore the app. in my many years of using ibisPaint, i still haven’t discovered all of the things you can do as they keep adding new things.
ibisPaint is a staple drawing app for many artists, and it’s not hard to see why. it’s easy to figure out and the program itself is very cooperative and foolproof. additionally, one of my favorite functions is that all brushes can be unlocked for 18 hours by watching an ad, which is incredibly generous compared to other apps. in others, you would usually need to buy the full version to unlock the really useful functions (most of which ibisPaint offers initially for free). the team also has a tendency to actually read the reviews and reports, which has been helpful on multiple occasions. they’re is extremely efficient, so if there’s something you have an issue with, chances are it’ll be fixed soon ^^.
in conclusion, ibisPaint is one of the best digital art apps available on mobile devices. i would definitely recommend it to all artists, no matter the skill level. thank you developers for making a great app!

An honest opinion

I’m very new to digital art but I’ve picked up pretty fast and am already taking commissions. Out of all the programs I’ve tried this one is really stellar. It gave me everything others lacked such as more brushes and brush customization, paint bucket tool, merging layers etc. At first I will admit that I was a bit confused because of all the options on the interface but really you get so used to it after really drawing with it. The only time it crashes is when I input a image that the app deems too big, however it’s not a big issue because I can simply adjust the size and it works perfectly (plus it auto saves my work when it did crash). Some of the brushes can be very laggy but really they’re perfect for what I need. The ruler options are also very very handy. Really if you “cant draw” like the negative comments are saying I believe it’s a user fault, maybe they are on a wrong or hidden layer or maybe their opacity is down. I love this a lot. If ur reading this I recommend the download. a big plus is for just one ad you unlock all the locked features for 18 hours, unlike other apps that bombard you with advertisements and lock off everything. Bravo developers I can tell you care about this.💕 Definitely recommend downloading if you’re new to digital art. It introduces you to all the tools and for me even works without WiFi. And I was surprised to say that it’s auto recorded my whole drawing?? That’s SICK. Great great job🎨✨

One of my hobbies is testing drawing apps, and I have had at least 7. I’ve drawn in everything from Notes to Procreate by Apple, but they don’t compare. I got it yesterday, and I already know the functions, and have made better works on here than anywhere else. It’s easy to use, free, and the only ads there are are tiny ones either at the top or bottom of your screen. No videos. It’s incredible. You get amazing brushes, and all for one ad. And you don’t need to spend money just to enjoy the full extent of ibisPaint. So over all, five star review, will not disappoint. (Ok maybe it will I don’t know your style)

Edit: It’s been a while since I first got this and first posted my review! So here is a little update to my thoughts:

It’s always updating! Some annoying things with the eraser and bucket tools have been fixed and all the brushes have been adjusted and some were added! It’s cool to see how much they pay attention to what people need from this app. Editing photos is an easy process, instead of having to do it in the photos app or Photo shop. Anyway, still a five star, I haven’t found any problems with it. But I do think that they should add a settings area in the main page, and a toggle that can turn on or off the function that makes it so when you go out of a drawing or your device dies, you can’t use the ‘go back’ button. I’m not sure how these sorts of apps work, but if that is possible, please make it so.
