August 8, 2011 - OmniSketch listed by PC Magazine as one of The 100 Best iPad Apps.
OmniSketch is listed in the iTunes Essential Paint & Drawing Apps section.
OmniSketch is a procedural drawing tool that allows you to create stunning sketches with very little effort. A procedural brush is a brush that uses a mathematical algorithm to draw patterns. These patterns can interact with lines that have already been drawn to produce amazing effects. The speed at which you draw will affect the look of the brush you are using. The brush algorithm can also be adjusted to produce different effects.
Now you might be reading this thinking, “There are already a large number of really good painting and drawing tools so what does OmniSketch bring to the game?” Instead of standard brushes and pencils, OmniSketch’s brushes use mathematical algorithms to draw patterns which interact with previously drawn lines to produce a cool sketch with detailed effects.
One of the coolest OmniSketch features is its mirrored drawing mode. You can opt to have your strokes mirrored across your iPad’s screen (top and bottom, left and right or both options) to produce really stunning designs.

Ratings and Reviews
Most unique collection of procedural brushes
OmniSketch has been on my assorted iDevices for years, and it runs just fine in iOS 10. It has quite an array of interesting effects brushes, especially if you add the geometry set.
While it's useful as is, I'd love to see at least an image layer added so that I could fit use pre-existing art or photos as a reference. As other reviewers have noted it would also be helpful to have better color controls.
New Brushes are nifty
If you like the old brushes, you will find that the new brushes are good too. While I only find 4-6 of them unique and fresh, in Omnisketch the application of the brush effects is the challenge and what makes it a special art app. I am happy with a .99 cent value of the brush set- but I think Omnisketch still lacks some essential elements of art app- such as being able to use layers and a tool that allows you to reselect the proper color you are using instead of trying to pick it again from the color wheel. I sincerely hope that in the future layers will be added, and I'd be happy to buy layers if that's what it came down to. Until then, Omnisketch is on the top of my list but can't wear the crown- this little artist makes too many mistakes and fixing them is frustrating without layers.
Unlimited creative potential to go where art has never gone before. Could use a slight updating...
