    Like the third one, are you really struggling with it?

    • Totally! It’s much less subtle, hard to get gradual transitions and subtle variations in opacity. The brushes are also difficult to fine tune. I’m sure with practice…

    • Thanks – this app is new – I’m trying it out for a student who uses an android tablet. It’s not so responsive as. “Brushes” so I found it a struggle!

    The contrast of sharp and blurred lines gives a dreamy other world feel. …or you’ve set the app on “spooky.”

    • Oh Sam I was having trouble with control! The sketch book pro app is less responsive than brushes. What app do you use? I can’t remember – and do use an iPad or other tablet? I need a few apps for androids as I sometimes have students with tablets other than iPad. X

      I haven’t tried through Android, only ipad. My app is called Brushes, but is not the same or as good as yours. It’s interesting seeing your skill with drawing the eyes, against the play and discovery of the app’s marks. Jeckle and Hyde.

      • Hmmm – I use “brushes” – I thought yours was called something else?
