Continuing the AndroidPIT series on apps related to a theme, tested by an expert, this week we have Nina who tested for us drawing and painting software for Android and gave us your opinion.
Nina Pechkovskaya graphic designer. His work has been exhibited in galleries of St. Petersburg and you can also find it on the net (take a look at his website here). Despite her busy schedule – Nina works for the site AndroidPIT Russia – to her we owe several illustrations that she has already made for our articles.
She searched for a while for a painting and drawing app, perfect for her smartphone. She wanted an app that offered as features a significant amount of brushes, colors and options, while remaining a fun, easy-to-use tool. She explains in this article which are your favorite apps.
SketchBook Mobile Express
The developers of SketchBook Mobile Express claim that the app is intended for both professionals and those who want to arouse their artistic vein. To get the most out of the app, Nina recommends using an S-Pen: "SketchBook lets you use very different tools, such as a brush, pencil, sprayer, but the best way to handle them with a pen. You can enjoy all the detail this app allows. "
Nina was also fascinated by how the app responds to finger pressure: her "very well-simulated" sensitivity.
Being able to create filters is one of the great strengths of StechBook: "You can create new filters by starting with a transparent one and then adding a fuller one." A not inconsiderable aspect when drawing is the user-friendly controls that the application provides.
The mirror function is one of the options that most attracted Nina. "It really helps people like me who have a problem with symmetry. This is a very useful option for industrial designers. I have designed a butterfly to show how the mirror effect works perfectly."
Sketch Free allows even beginners to create fantastic drawings. Nina loves the simplicity and intuitive side of the app, although the app is somewhat limited. "If you try to delete something, you can only go back, just once." Our expert was unable to find a way to increase the size of the brushes, but she still believes they are great. Just practice a little bit for the application to become good entertainment.
According to Nina, My Paintings "simple, bright and absolutely crazy." But I must confess: she loves it. And we fully agree with your opinion. Draw something with My Paintings, a bit like adopting the visual language of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. Each time you swipe your finger across the screen, the app picks a different, complementary color, turning your creations into a wonderfully psychedelic world. You can easily add stars, smileys and rainbows.
"I recommend this app to all those who have never had good grades in fine arts," advises Nina. Another plus: The app has no advertising and is microscopic in size (311 KB).
