comfycal ,

Need ability to assign shortcuts and gestures + image reference feature!!!

I’m a new iPad/ tablet user trying out different art apps. So far! I’m loving the experience with Pastela because it reminds me much of Paint Tool SAI, a drawing program I’ve been using for 8 years.

i only wish for the ability to change and assign shortcuts, plus a built-in image reference window. Thanks

💖✨💖💎💖✨Better than Ibis Paint! Love the ability to add your own custom brush shapes!

I love how compact this app is! I cannot stress how important it is to have the ability to add your own custom brush shapes and not be stuck with default shapes. It’s got a good system for blending. Maybe some abr brush support in the future and a reference window that can add multiple images? And a palette section? Keep up the good work! 💖💎💖💎💖

Great but not friendly.

It’s an amazing drawing app. Compare to others this is far superior however every app has it’s own flaws. I kind of wished this app was versatile towards other devices because as a apple and android user, I would love to be able to use this app on both devices. A friendly suggestion, please consider adding this app to allow android users to have their fun too not just the apple users.
