There are different brush settings an advanced color palette and in-depth smooth functionality that allow you to rotate crop or scale the images in your creation. If you are a beginner who is just interested in creating cool drawings in your spare time this app will make you feel like a kid in a candy store. If you are a professional or

Once you are finished it will be difficult to tell a drawing created on the iPad from a drawing created on canvas. Get ArtStudio for iPad iDraw In some sense iDraw is eerily similar to ArtStudio except with a narrower focus. This app while expensive is quite simply the most comprehensive and interactive drawing and illustration app available for your mobile device. Created by the good folks of Indeeo Inc. this app combines professional vector drawing and editing with a slew of cool features that they are constantly improving to make sure that the artist can add as much detail to their creation as they wish. Whereas some of the early illustration apps can feel like they are doing most of the work and you are just the guide iDraw is designed to empower the user so that they feel in control of their art and they are exposed to every tool that can help them create the perfect illustration. Like ArtStudio it doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or a professional iDraw is equally interesting and useful for all types of artists. SketchBook Pro If you are an artist especially a sketcher just go ahead and write Autodesk Inc. a thank you note now because their intuitive and aesthetically pleasing Sketchbook Pro app has become one of the most popular apps for artists on iTunes. The app borrows the painting engine from its counterpart for a traditional computer and teams that with a wide range of cool features tons of innovative sketching tools an eye-catching color wheel and an easy-to-use and intelligent interface. The sign of a good art app is that both novices and professionals can reap the same rewards from the product and that is the case with Sketchbook Pro. If you are a novice then you should have no trouble enjoying the cornucopia of artistic tools that you suddenly have at your disposal. And if you are an experienced professional you will be impressed and pleased to find that Sketchbook Pro has incorporated tons of details and advanced tools that won’t make it feel like you are trying to use an Etch-A-Sketch.

Developed by Savage Interactive this app is billed as a studio-grade sketchbook for the experienced sketcher. There are more than 40 brushes that you can choose from a smudge tool to add realism high definition layers and downright incredible functionality. Thanks to their painting engine these developers created a smooth responsive and life- like painting ability that includes pressure sensitivity and realistic stroke movements all while helping you create a sketch in the blink of an eye. Like any app worth its salt you can save all of your works of art arrange them in a gallery or export your artwork to iTunes your email or evensocial networks. Procreate just goes to show that a simple yet effective interface combined with an attention to the details of painting can create an incredible resource for artists. Get Procreate A r t n e a r The saga of Artnear and Artnear Pro is almost as interesting as the app itself. An interactive app that allowed users to quickly and easily find cool art exhibitions or museums near their location Artnear was a huge hit a few years ago before disappearing from the map recently. But take heart art lovers because the apps have been bought from their previous developers and the new developers behind this app are working on re-releasing this once-popular art tool and making it even better than before. A quick glance at their website shows that they are planning on rolling out functionality that will allow art lovers to find a museum or gallery near them find artists with current or upcoming shows in the area and a bookmarks tab that will let you save your favorite spots just in case you want to go back.

Occasionally someone gets a hankering for art. And when they do they don’t want to go search Google for the nearestart museums. They want something easier and quicker which is exactly what Artnear and Artnear Pro will provide. Get Artnear Art Authority If you can spare 5 and you have been feverishly searching for a database of art collections and art information then buying Art Authority should be a no-brainer. Designed by Open Door Networks Inc. with the hopes of becoming a real-world art museum on your phone this app is one of the most beautifully designed apps on iTunes with tons of high-resolution images and some of the most stunning works of art ever created. If you want to just scroll through some of the world’s most famous works of art Art Authority has more than 1000 to choose from. If you want the background story and complete gallery for your favorite artist Art Authority lets you easily search for it. But perhaps the most fun thing to do with this app is just to let yourself go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole immersing yourself in some of the most beautiful works of art and learning the stories surrounding them. It is basically like a digital art museum for your phone. Get Art Authority Typedrawing At first glance this app seems too simple to be included on a serious art apps list but look closer and you will find a simple yet innovative idea that can be a lot of fun for users to experiment with. Most small children would be able to use this incredibly easy typography art app and even serious artists might be able to enjoy fooling around with the different features available. All you have to do is type a sentence or a word and then you experiment with different features colors and tools while using your finger to create an aesthetically pleasing and

The folks at Hansol Huh didn’t just make it an amateur tool though they incorporated shading features a large panel of colors and cool ways to change the shape and size and font of the text. We admit this app probably should be used more for fun and entertainment than the creation of serious and long-lasting art but this is a different take on the plethora of drawing and sketching apps flooding the market. And it has been very popular which means there are enough people that like it. Get TypeDrawing Inspire Pro At this point you probably saw Inspire Pro on the list and said “Oh no not another painting app these things are all the same” Well allow us to respectfully disagree. Inspire Pro is similar to the apps listed above in many ways but it also stands out in a few big ways. For instance Inspire Pro doesn’t care for a large collection of brush tools or multiple layers. What they do care about is creating the best possible simulation for wet paint on canvas. Their focus on this simulation has resulted in what everyone seems to agree is the best color blending capabilities of any app on the market. The fluid interface allows you to work quickly and the dry brush tool makes some for some of the most beautiful and eye- catching color blends. Beginners will be able to use this app but it is truly targeting professional artists who should be able to use the color-blending technology and independent brushstroke technology to create breathtaking art on your phone or your iPad. Get Inspire Pro Moodboard If you love social tools like Pinterest then you will love Moodboard just the same. An app that is eerily similar to Pinterest in that you can basically create limitless numbers of boards filled with pictures and designs and then you can share them with your friends your family or perfect strangers. If the idea seems simple that is because it is. This app

But that doesn’t mean the features that this app does have aren’t great. You can upload photos from the web or import them from wherever you can do some light editing to the photos add some colors some text maybe even a background and then it’s interface allows you to easily sort and organize your different boards how you would like them to be arranged. This app is the perfect opportunity to showcase your inspirational work if you are planning a wedding showing off your design work and sharing your photography. You don’t need to be a professional to use it you only need to have a passion forphotographyand design and art. Get Moodboard Auryn Ink Do you have a burning passion for realistic watercolor painting but don’t have the tools or the resources to go out and set up your own in-home watercolor studio Well then you should probably consider Auryn Ink as an alternative. This award-winning and innovative app blends an intuitive interface with a wide variety of tools that allow you to quickly and competently create magnificent watercolor paintings. The intelligence of the app allows for the user to control the brush pressure effects blend color pigments and take charge of the levels of water dilution or concentration you wish to include in your painting. At points it almost feels like you are actually painting using a brush and canvas. Beginners may be overwhelmed at first because of the sheer volume of tools and options afforded them but it’s easy to use so they will get used to it. Experts can marvel at how this app allows you to come as close to actual watercolor painting as you possibly can without using paper and pen. Get Auryn Ink Art

But if we had ranked these apps based on popularity the simply titled Art would probably be near or at the top of the list. The idea itself is hardly revolutionary. The app is an enormous and constantly updated database of artists complete with their biographies and most famous works. The search function allows you to track down your favorite artists easily and the app even added a quiz section where you can put your art knowledge to the test by matching paintings with the artists who painted them. When compared with some of the more complex apps on this list Art pales in comparison. But there might not be a single better art resource available for your mobile device on the market. This is an app that can be used by serious art students to help them research projects or it can be used by people just interested in learning more about the fascinating world of art and the fascinating people that populated that world. Art In Motion The developers at PDJ Apps must have seen all the other painting and drawing apps available and decided to step their game up because Art in Motion is one of the most graphically enthralling and beautiful art apps you can find on the Internet. If you want to just create a standard sketch use one of the apps above. But if you want to create a scene with moving objects and vibrant colors then look to Art in Motion to satisfy your curiosity. Basically you create and customize small orbs and then watch them bounce around your screen thanks to the app’s innovative Psychics engine. If you don’t feel up to the task of creating your own scene that is fine because Art in Motion already has 20 scenes to give you a head start towards your creation. The interface is slick and the functionality is smooth allowing the user to control every aspect of their scene with just the slight touch of their fingers. Get Art in Motion Art Rage We will save one of my favorite art studio apps for last because Art Rage deserves some lauding for the interactive intuitive and multi-faceted app they have created. Art Rage doesn’t differ tremendously from the apps that we have already listed but it does seem

There are layers so you can add to elements of your painting and an intuitive interface that effectively simulates watercolors being painted onto the canvas. When it comes to the inane details of painting Art Rage made sure that professional or experienced painters would feel as if they had every possible tool at their disposal. But despite all of the tools and features that this app boasts it is surprisingly easy to navigate and use. The paintings can be done quickly if you know what you are looking for and if you don’t know what you are looking for the interface is so slick that you can find it easily. Then as added bonus if you want the step-by-step breakdown on how you created your last painting the app allows you to record your work and play it back. This app is truly awesome for painters and those who love to experiment with paint. It’s like bringing your personal full-service art studio to you couch. Get ArtRage . . .
