Interface is simple
Loads of brushes
All necessary effects
Loads of textures
Loads of tutorials and examples
Very intuitive interface
Can export in any format Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The selection tool is little cumbersome to use
There is no brush that is good for filling colors. There is always some gap.
There is no fill option
And often even the fill color does not fill the edges. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you like the traditional paper and pencil style, then there is nothing better than Procreate. Go for it.
Even if you don't know drawing, but have some imagination, you can do well. There is plenty of help while drawing and expressing your imagination.
You can do storyboard within procreate on a layer and then draw your actual thing on top of that layer
The alpha lock, clipping mask and masks work great and are excellent to use.
You need an apple pencil - from any generation for sure to comfortably use procreate.
The canvas size and the number of layers depends on the resolution and RAM of your iPAD.
I strongly recommend Procreate and it is very affordable currently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I have drawn loads of props and characters and I animate them. I specialize in creating animated books from children books. Procreate is a tool that I go to often to get the best textures and realistic effects.
I have drawn several night sky elements, desert elements, animals, fishes, characters all with ease. The shades and textures come out nice and colorful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I've always loved Artrage's incredibly simple and accessible user interface - you can literally just get painting straight away, so it's ideal for somebody who rarely uses graphics or painting software and just wants to create digital art quickly and for fun. And for those who do frequently use digital painting software, Artrage's powerful tools look so much like traditional media that I'm still always impressed every time I do a drawing or painting at just how good it looks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I dislike very little about the software - occasionally I have trouble exporting images if the canvas is too large, and also it's obviously not as advanged as something like Photoshop in the editing and effects department. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It's an absolute must try - so inexpensive and it just looks so outstanding! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
For colouring illustrations I usually do turn to Artrage first as I can achieve a really good, individual look in far less time than in other software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I love how lag free it is to use. Love the real estate you can as an artist to create. Plus its free! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Wish it was updated with more brushes but now that it's free I can't complain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Just download it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I've become a better artist because of the software Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I don’t like how small the words are when I’m trying to use it on my phone . I have to keep zooming in . It’s so much better on my computer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I don’t have to use photoshop for everything and there’s already templates there for you to use when you need ideas Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It's a very interesting application, but in my opinion it's still green. There a lot of interesting solution, the aquarelle brushes and oil are very nice - but you'll have to use with them some time to start drawing as you want. The interface is very good and intuitive - at this point they are very OK. interacting with paper texture is also a very good option they add.
Overall it's a very nice app to draw in, I think if they will fix the issues with vector brushes i'll start to use it much more, much more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Vector brushes have end errors, like little artifact on the end of the line - that a soft issue and i think they will resolve it soon - but for me that's a problem, because brushes are very good, i would ude that app much more if not that.
It not supported Nvidia Quadro video cards - that is on my base laptop (it is touch and pen support - i work in Photoshop on it) - only on my iPad pro ... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you are looking for a realistic looking paint on digital it is definitely the right choose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
it recreate the best realistic brush effects like oil and aquarelle - when i need a realist fast result i prefer to do that in Fresco vs doing that on paper.
IN fresco we start to draw direct in vector (illustrator it is not very advance in drawing) and that give us much better result raver that vectoring the procreate file - it is about small details - but the small details make a very big difference in preparing a landscape for a wine label for example.

Krita is an excellent image editor and is very useful for preparing the images for our posts. It is straightforward to use, really intuitive, and its features and tools offer all the options we could ever need.
Also, Krita allows us to customize the entire interface so that I can put my favorite tools in an accessible place. It has many easily configurable options, even with the right-click, which helps save time in editing.
Furthermore, it is quite light software, so I can edit images without experiencing lag, and being compatible with practically any format, I can export my work as I need it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It is an open-source program, which implies that anyone can use it for free, but this has a negative part, and that is that it continually has updates that can bring usability problems (although it is not frequent).
On the other hand, although it has many functions and tools, some are still missing, such as the draft funds, but someday they will include it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you need to make image edits but cannot pay for other programs' licenses, Krita is an excellent option. When you use it, you will notice that it has many tools that will allow you to edit any image like a professional, easily and quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We need to edit simple images continually, but other programs' licenses increased our budget, so Krita became the perfect option to solve all our problems.
It is a great editor that allows us to make the designs we need, and we can also export the final art in any format without problems. It is an application simple to use, flexible, intuitive, and quite powerful when it comes to editing. So I always recommend it to my contacts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Clip Studio Paint makes illustrations very easy even for a beginner. Tools are very self explanatory. There is a tool to make every job easy, unlike adobe illustrator which has a steep learning curve. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
You have to download stock images/wallpapers from the cloud and it does not always work. sometimes tools and things stop working and you have to figure out what the issue is on your own. not good customer support for this program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I strongly recommend Clip Studio Paint to all levels of illustrators, even the novice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I am able to draw and format comics with ease with this program. It makes your work very clean and professional with ease. it has all the functions of adobe products but with less of a learning curve. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I like everything about PaintTool SAI. It doesn't use nearly as much GPU as Photoshop does (this means you can see the brushstrokes as soon as you press down your tablet pen, without any delay) and the brushes are just much easier to use than photoshop brushes. To this day I still don't know how to blend colours in Photoshop, but it is so much easier in PaintTool SAI. The user interface is very friendly and supports PSD files as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The only thing I dislike about PaintTool SAI is that it doesn't have the range of features compared to Photoshop when it comes to Image editing & grading. But it doesn't mean I can't just export it into Photoshop to do it. The other annoying thing is that sometimes the software can't support PSD files and won't let me save my artwork, it seems to be a bug that always catches me off guard and I will have to re-install the app to fix it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Everyone I know who use PaintTool SAI will agree that it is much easier to use than Photoshop. I tend to create my artwork in PaintTool SAI, and then export it into Photoshop to grade for a final polish. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
All Painter brushes give the feeling of painting in real life. Its color palette, and the ability to extrapolate the colors from a reference photo, make it ideal for reproducing landscapes without losing the artistic touch. Each Painter tool is designed to faithfully reproduce its real world counterpart. Even the canvases are designed to create more complex textures, such as that of watercolor paper, for example, or a canvas for painting. The end result can only be truly excellent and, at high levels, it will even be difficult to recognize a painting made with Painter, from one made in a traditional way.
Its perfect compatibility with Wacom pens and tablets makes the work flow truly natural and spontaneous, especially with regards to the thickness or inclination of the stroke. With Painter it really seems to paint in a natural way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The work area is quite elaborate, if you don't have a very large screen, the many windows may seem too close together, which can be annoying. In addition, the selector for the brush size is rather boring, a "window" system, like the one used by Photoshop, would be simpler. In addition, if Painter is closed while a screen tablet is in use, it will no longer be visible on the primary computer screen even if it opens correctly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
If you want to draw as you have always done, in the most natural way possible, Painter is the most suitable product for your needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Being able to draw directly in Painter speeds up the creative process considerably. Nowadays it is the only software that can provide pencils really similar to the real ones, thus allowing you to make basic sketches with very high precision, and thus avoid wasting time later in boring corrections. In addition, the ability to easily correct errors makes it preferable to traditional design. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
First of all I would have to say that I lovethat I can draw and create on an unlimited size canvas that is so fantastic! I can't tell you how many products are tried that this has been the limitations to my creation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I guess I have to say the one thing that I hate the most is that this software is quite expensive especially for an entire school. Of coarse, as a teacher I must get the software approved for purchase before my colleagues and myself are able to enjoy such a wonderful product. There are so many other software products that are needed, as well (for a 100% special ed curriculum), that continuing with the more expesive option just didn't quit out way the benefits of switching to asimilar but cheaper (or free) program.

There were many many many benefits of Mybrushes Paint for Mac. we utilized it at my school daily not only to allow for the therapeutic benefits that are provided to our students allowing those with fine motor difficulties to create masterpieces like my student's peers with stong fine motor skills and control.

I can draw portraits of people and make signs for anything. I create sketches of signs and display them what it would look like before the are made. It is a great way to see them in real time and avoid mistakes after the sign was printed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
There are a range of tools I really like in draw plus. The best for myself is the pen tool. This allows you to create Bezier curves. You are able to change how you want the curves, straight, curved or automatic. This allows me to create cartoon style drawings with ease. The really useful thing about the pen tool is that you can join the shape up and it allows you to fill it in. The colour pallettes within this software have different categories. You can choose specific tones of a colour, a theme or a gradient style. Furthermore, you can add textures and styles to your fills. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
It is only specifically a drawing package. If you insert images within here it does not let you alter them as you would expect in an overall graphic design package. Adding text can also be difficult. Once you have added it, it can be really hard to manipulate and edit. Furthermore, there are 2 types of text tools the artistic text tol and a frame text. However, it is automatically set to artistic text which makes sub par styled text. The cutout studio allows you to cut out images and create transparent backgrounds, however it descreases the quality of the image. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I would recommend you look at some YouTube videos so you can fully get the most out of this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I am able to create some amazing 2D cartoon designs. I am then able to conver these images into animation within the same package! I am able to create stop frame and keyframe animations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The most helpful thing about Epic Pen is that it automatically creates an overlay over my desktop, where I can edit, draw or highlight things, I even leave notes sometimes with Epic Pen.
