Versatile drawing app for mobile

ibis Paint X is a free graphic and design application that was developed by ibis inc for mobile devices. It is a full-featured drawing app that provides plenty of tools that both hobbyists and professionals can utilize. It can also serve as a capable photo-editing solution for quick and precise changes.

Compared to similar apps like Adobe Photoshop Sketch or Procreate, ibis Paint X takes on a unique style that is geared more towards anime and manga fans and artists. It comes with sketch tools and effects that make it easier to create those types of drawings and works.

How does it work?

In a nutshell, ibis Paint X is an app that was developed with drawing and sketching purposes in mind. To be more specific, it is geared towards artists that utilize an anime or manga style. It allows you to add frames, import reference images, and various filters that you would typically see in those works. You even get an advanced text tool function and multiple screen tones to choose from.

Setting that aside, ibis Paint X will serve you just fine as a standard drawing/sketching app, as well. It offers over 2000 brush types of varying sizes and thicknesses that will fit pretty any kind of look you're going for. When it comes to layering, you can add as many as you need, each one having parameters and options that can be set individually like opacity, duplicating, or rotating.

Lastly, you can share your work via images or videos with the community and interact and possibly gain feedback from fellow artists. The app does come with a steep learning curve, though, and it is further compounded by the lack of guides or tutorials for beginners. Also, its UI looks cluttered on smaller screens, and it is really meant to be used on larger devices like tablets.

An impressive drawing app

In summary, if you're looking for a capable and full-featured drawing app, consider giving ibis Paint X a shot. Whether you're a budding artist or a long-time veteran, this option provides more than plenty of tools, options, and features that will satisfy both camps. More so, if you like to draw in the style of anime or manga. Highly recommended.
