    Being bad at drawing shouldn't stop you from making cartoons. Try practicing 30 minutes a day. Use a good step-by-step guide specializing in cartoon-style drawing and you will be creating characters, animals and cars in no time. Simple animation options are also included.

    The app starts off on the right foot. I am one of those who can't draw and the app gives you the chance to start out tracing and move on to free hand. You can change the opacity of the tutorial sketches, move them to a floating panel while you're drawing is the main screen or you can turn them off altogether. The app also allows you to work on drawing in one module and work on coloring in another. This is very useful as the two things are very different. One of the best features is the ability to pinch-zoom and move the picture around. This allowed me to use the store and rear to move around the picture making fine adjustments until I had a fairly reasonable picture. Now for the bad. Apparently the app doesn't allow saving even though there's a menu for it. Try as I might it would not save. Secondly and related, there's no way to save a partial work then return at a later time and finish it. There's not even a menu indicating sometime in the future their may be a load function. So, if you don't mind doing all your work in one sitting and not being able to save the finished product (I did a screenshot and saved it). Then this is a great little program to help you learn to draw. Of course no matter how good the program, you have to practice, practice, practice to get where you can do it out of your head without help.

    It's is a great app, if you are a beginner and want to learn how to draw good art. It provides step-by-step instructions so it is easy to learn. It's also not only good for beginners but experienced drawers also. It can give you another approach to drawing. I would recommend this app to anyone out there who enjoys drawing and either wants to learn how to get better, or wants to take a different approach to their drawings.

    Sorry... but I'm not too impressed... Plus before the update, I had most of the drawings downloaded and now I dont!!! 😔😡 if you could do something about this I might give five stars.

    This app is fun for kids. It allows horrible drawers to make decent drawings. One of the problems about this app is the completed drawing example covers the canvas so you can't see your entire picture. This does not really teach you to draw, but allows you to trace to make some cute pictures. There are more than two pictures unlocked for this app now.

    I have not played a lot yet... But I like it so far. The only reason I only gave 4 stars is cause I am still looking around. There seems to be a lot of adds I heard. I will keep on redoing this rate. For all the updates! I think it is great so far, If you need to learn how to draw i 9/10 recommend it! The only reason it is 9 of 10 is because not all ratings are the best I have not seem to run in to any people talk about. But 9/10

    I occupy a stressful role and coming home to this and some tv really helps me unwind at the end of day, and so for that I extend a very big thank you to the designers. >My only criticism is that edges seem to fade or bleed in between using a section, AND please add more sketches, because I’ve used about half of the collection so far!!

    This is probably ly one of the BEST drawing apps I have ever used. It showes you step by step how to do it witch makes it easier that just drawing the whole thing at once! My personal favorite is the Phoenix, it's so cool!! This app is definitely worth getting!
  • Good App Feb 21, 2015

    By MarvelComicsFan
    This app is so good cause it can teaches people how to draw. Whether is beginners to pro that can draw step by step. I would rate this app 5 stars. It also gives you different types of things to draw from Africa to weapon. Add more characters and get rid of the small screen in the left hand corner.

    It's ok. Not sure if I'm actually learning or just copying fragmented drawings. Entertaining though. Wish there was more Landscapes, realistic buildings and city scrapes. Please add! Thanks.

    We like the app. But we feel the difficulty needs to be enhanced slightly, on the tutorials that are given. For young artists, we feel they should challenge themselves more. We would like a feature where you can see the individual steps and try and free hand it on your own.

    I honestly just wish there was more optoins for drawing,like you're brushes and brush size,i also don't like the fact that you can't zoom in at all.

    Okay, the reason I gave it two stars is that the two only available free drawings are pretty good and nice, but the problem is that there are two two - the rest you have to pay! If there were 10 free drawings and the rest you had to pay for, that would be fine. But seriously, TWO? That's just ridiculous. I hope you reconsider.

    The simplest example required a fill function, but there appears to be none. And the examples skip giant steps. There's no way any of the samples were made in this program.

    too many ads, not enough drawings. it's annoying that everytime you click on the pencil, the color/thickness board won't go away unless you click off of it which leaves tons of unwanted dots on my drawing. I would never spend money on it and I uninstalled the app.

    The app starts off on the right foot. I am one of those who can't draw and the app gives you the chance to start out tracing and move on to free hand. You can change the opacity of the tutorial sketches, move them to a floating panel while you're drawing is the main screen or you can turn them off altogether. The app also allows you to work on drawing in one module and work on coloring in another. This is very useful as the two things are very different. One of the best features is the ability to pinch-zoom and move the picture around. This allowed me to use the store and rear to move around the picture making fine adjustments until I had a fairly reasonable picture. Now for the bad. Apparently the app doesn't allow saving even though there's a menu for it. Try as I might it would not save. Secondly and related, there's no way to save a partial work then return at a later time and finish it. There's not even a menu indicating sometime in the future their may be a load function. So, if you don't mind doing all your work in one sitting and not being able to save the finished product (I did a screenshot and saved it).
