Good app but no English translation feature

This is one of the BEST simple drawing apps. It’s not overloaded with features but every tool provided is really purposeful and useful. It is free and comes with a community! I enjoy this app a lot as it has improved tenfold over the time I wasn’t using it. All the brushes are of great quality and the layers seem limitless. There are so many export options and it’s just fantastic. At times I feel a bit lonely though since there is no English translation so it’s hard to see what the sensei’s challenges are. I hope they can at least provide that one word in English too. I would just like a translation feature like Instagram or Twitter has. Otherwise good app!

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!
