i love how people from all around the world use this, and there are many great artists on this app. But there are a few things to take into consideration, when i zoom in on my drawing, some things disapear. i think it is just with the bucket tool, it is in beta so i know there are many bugs with it. But other wise, for a free art app, it's a good one. I suggest trying it out.

It's soooo good! the tools are great! I only gave it four stars, because of one, really annoying, issue. 1. The zoom in. I love how you can zoom in really far with this app, but if you're working with colors, the colors have a tendancy to...vanish?! this is annoying, because if i want to color in an eye with white, and zoom in, the skin color turns white, and I cant tell what I'm trying to color in!

Hi, great app, it's really helpful but I'd love to see the inclusion of how to draw backgrounds. Things like landscapes and more advanced buildings than the cartoon ones you see on here and tutorials on perspective. I understand if that's a difficult task to accomplish but I'd love it if that were to happen. Other than that, I enjoy this app.
