Simple but fun

I tried so many apps like this one but I never had the encouragement button. It helps when you’ve been stuck and feel that your drawing might not be up to par with what pixiv wants. As long as you are not offending anyone you are able to use pixiv and their sketch app. Thank you development team for making this button for the artist impaired and the ones who are just starting out. The layers I didn’t try but is it limited or not? If it is unlimited I need to use it more. Have fun making great masterpieces and keep up the good work everyone!

Would appreciate English subtitles

I love and use the app almost daily, but the majority of Pixiv Sketch is Japanese speaking and I cannot understand what is written in posts or Sensei’s daily challenges. This makes it a bit difficult to talk to other users or participate in Sensei’s challenges. Otherwise the app is great and I’m happy to be able to post artwork and see others artworks from around the world! :-)
