What is it about?
ArtStudio is another option for those wanting to create artwork on their iPad. The app includes 30 brushes. These include pencils, brushes, a wet brush, an eraser, a smudge tool, an airbrush and many more. The app also includes a text tool to add captions or other text to your painting. The app also includes 17 drawing lessons. These are great for those that still need to learn how to draw effectively. The app will also simulate brush pressure to help your paintings look more realistic. The app can also insert various images onto six different layers. The app includes many more features and is a great alternative to the essential apps.
For those who...
- Want something that is simple but still provides powerful tools
- Need a mobile art studio
Not for those who...
- Are not artistic
- Need an app for taking notes, not drawing
Why we love it
ArtStudio is a fairly simple app that is easy enough for anyone, even non-artists, to understand and use. However, if you do require some serious drawing tools, this app still provides quite a punch.
ArtStudio for iPad is $4.99 but there are more add-ons
