Create art that moves by painting with physics and beautiful special effects.
Share your art as a video, GIF, or even livestream on Periscope or YouTube.


•Quickly create magical animations where drawings, photos, videos, text and emoji interact as dynamic “sprites”.
•Draw amazing effects like fire, snow, rain, and water on a blank canvas or on your own photos and videos.
•Use any image or text/emoji with your brushes to draw stained glass flower emojis, make it rain pandas, or flash neon captions.
•Brushes utilize shaders, lighting, and normal mapping so paint strokes reflect and catch scene lighting.
•22 brush style effects from particle emitters to traditional Watercolor, Impasto, Ribbon, Fountain Pen, Pewter, Metal, Comic, etc.
•Drag a sprite on to the palette to instantly create a new brush texture.


•Animate your art with physics. Make your sprites burst into asteroids, follow specific paths, orbit around sprites, disappear in a black hole, or tilt with your phone.
•Paint Photons to add light directly to your art and fling them to change illumination across your scene.
•20 physics-inspired motion effects from Fermion to Neutrino, Graviton, Gluon, Positron, Electron, Wind, Black Hole, White Hole, Pulsar, etc.


•Draw overlapping brush strokes or drag and drop multiple sprites onto each other to combine them.
•Useful gesture controls such as two finger tap to conveniently pause/resume physics so you can easily paint and align sprites.
•Directly change sprite layering with a simple, seamless Corkscrew gesture.
•Draw box edges to contain your moving sprites to specific areas.
•Make hidden art where your sprites pop-out from hyperspace when you tap a Wormhole.
•Share your scenes as photos, GIFs, or broadcast a livestream.


•Canvas pans and grows automatically so it is virtually unlimited, making space for new strokes automatically.
•Draw continuous brush strokes to any length, without your finger hitting the screen edge.
•Canvas automatically wraps moving sprites as they hit the screen edge.
•Create soundscapes where sprite collisions generate rhythmic sound patterns.
•Shake your phone to make sprites move and collide to your beat.

PRO FEATURES (Coming Soon)

•Layers. Create layered compositions effortlessly.
•More brush styles, physics effects, and sound effects.
•Live filters for background video and images.


Art is the ichor of culture.

Art tells our stories, memorializes our past, portends our future, warns us when we go off course, and propels us forward. Art makes us smile, laugh, cry, empathize, understand, remember, and dream.

Great art abounds in nature, in caves, in our museums, galleries, buildings, and cities; in our parks, schools, and neighborhoods.

The greatest art, however, is the art within you.

Whether it’s a quick sketch, a funny doodle, a rich composition, a witty comic, the art you create is special because it is personal, original, and authentic. Every piece adds to the masterpiece of your life.

Spriteville’s hope is to nurture the art within all of us.

Spriteville keeps composition close by — within the reach of your pocket — providing a mobile canvas that is instantly available whenever inspiration strikes. Instead of canned selfie effects and trendy style transfer filters your friends have already seen, Spriteville lets you paint with physics giving you the power to quickly create one-of-a-kind animations where drawings, photos, videos, text and emoji magically interact as dynamic “sprites”.

We developed Spriteville over the last four years to make animating with mobile digital ink as quick, easy, and expressive as typing.

We hope Spriteville helps you entertain friends and family, express your stories, explain your opinions, elevate your messages, and extol your love.

We hope Spriteville helps you create dynamic art that moves the world!

Be creative.
Be original.
Be authentic.
Be yourself.

Team Spriteville.

Very cool. So many features and effects. Still discovering new things every time I use it. Best to keep things simple but that’s hard when one can do some many cool things.
