Ratings and Reviews
Best App you'll use!
Dear readers and future costumers,
As a reviewer and rater I rate this five stars. First it's amazing! You can make pretty artwork and honestly it makes you artwork look likes it's about to go in the gallery. Second, there is a sketches community so you can look at others beautiful artwork. You can make folders for your work! It's only my first day and I have made ten beautiful bold drawings! Third, they help you use tools such as watercolor, paint brush, and much more by creating videos for the tutorials. They feature other apps which I think is brilliant. Fourth, there are fun daily activities you can draw! For me I'm not much of a artist but now I look like a masterpiece artist. This is why I named this review the best app you'll ever use! Thanks for your service and stay safe! I love sharing artwork with the nation! Also, they now let you have a stylist pen you can buy and draw with for the app! It's amazing! Buy this! I'm not much of a drawer but this is the best app ever and it makes me look like a pro at art! Love this and five star rating app!
One of the best drawing apps!
This is probably the best (and mostly only) drawing app on the appstore.
It has given me a liberty to make stupid doodles whenever i want and that’s something I didn’t have before. But it can have some improvements. First off, when you drag drawings you can share them, send them to another folder, or delete them. And while this is useful, the manual also says i can move them inside the folder, but all i can do is order them in order of edition or creation. Can you make it so that you can move drawing wherever you want plz? Also a suggestion i have had for a long time is a option to use pixelart, that may sound dumb, but it would a lifesaver. Also can you make the pencils 100% pixelated? The blurry pencils may look nice and scene less but when using the filler tool it looks ugly and leaves you with a white outline. Also in the second layer the transparency is just white, making the cut option useless. Speaking of transparency, when you turn a drawing into a picture all the transparency is lost and turned into a white void, making using one drawing on another very dificult. And also i get that this is part of the Pro Version but i would love a colorpicker and multiple layers. And the option to choose when to turn an image into a foto.
Anyways appart from that this is the perfect drawing app. 🙂👍
My favorite drawing app, but it’s getting frustrating
I’ve had this app for a few years now, and I recently purchased the pro version. At first I loved it- the wide range of new tools and mechanics seemed to be worth the relatively low cost, but lately the app has been getting increasingly glitchy. Most of my problems stem from the layers, as I’ve seen a couple of other people mention. Every now and then, whenever I was working on a particularly large project, I’d get a warning about there being too many layers. Usually I’d merge or delete some and move on, but as of late I’ve been getting this message even with only a few layers, and when I do try and do something about it, it ends up doing strange things to my work (deleting something on one layer and replacing it with what I tried to get rid of, redrawing things I erased when I try to resume working, filling random layers in completely black and then backing up so that I can’t undo it, just to name a few). This kind of thing has started happening even without a layer warning. I’ve tried looking up anything I could do to fix it, but the most common response I could find was to download the latest version of the app, which as far as I can tell I’ve done. I love this platform, but I can’t handle worrying every moment about whether or not my hours of work will be ruined without warning.
