I don't normally rate apps but this was too good to be left unrecognized. I'm a terrible artist but with this app and the feature which allows you to draw over pictures I've become more confident, there are few brushes, but they're awesome . I truly love the way it let's me create something completely different from what I started with. Although it is great, there is a problem with that feature, you can't use normal pics because they're too big and become streched out, and don't look good at all

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you are making most of the app. We are aware of the stretched issue and trying to resolve this. However, in the meantime, you can also try to crop the image so it fits into the resolution frame. Will be sure to inform you when we have a solution for this feature. Thanks for letting us know.

Really good app, though it is lacking some drawing tools at the moment like the fill bucket and the ability to fully rotate the image in some modes. It was kinda hard to use at first but after a few minutes i got used to it. Over all, great app, needs some inprovements but still very good.

The Paintology is an okay app at best. It has only rudimentary features and very little actual control over the brushes, paint and canvas. Also, I did not see any pressure sensitivity or tilt response in the brushes. I used the app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen. Maybe this app is not designed for use on a tablet with an active stylus. I also found that the paint did not lay down on the canvas in a pleasing manner or mix in any way approximating a natural media like oil or watercolor. I do see that there are artists that have created very nice works with the app, it seems to me that it would take a lot of effort to do so. There are other apps that have better response from and control over the brushes and media. This app seems to be better suited to sketching and dabbling.
