Loading and saving problems

fish man87
Version 1.25
I really enjoy using this app.
However, sometimes the load menu seems to load a blank canvas, even though I had just saved an image. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
Also it would be good to be able to set the brush size numerically without using the slider, or even to be able to save default brush sizes.

Zen Brush 2 is amazing

Version 1.25
I had lost interest in digital art for some reason. However I’ve just downloaded this app and I feel inspired once again. Thank you so much for this app.

Very nice

Version 1.24
Loved using the app so far. I’m using an Apple Pencil and find finger input really annoying. Needs to be an option to disable brushing with the finger please. Other than that no complaints, very slick.


Version 1.19
Works ok with Apple Pencil but not easy to draw anything concrete


Version 1.18
Really relaxing app. The ink spreads nicely though the dry brush seems a little bit less realistic.
My only complaint is that it lacks full support for my "53" Pencil.


Version 1.09
It's easy to create drawings that resemble Japanese wall scrolls with this program. The ink spreads out and brush strokes look so natural. It's a joy to paint with and the act of creation is the point really rather than the finished art.

Not particularly realistic

Version 1.07
Was hoping for an app that offers a more realistic Chinese brush painting effect, that allows you to 'load' the brush with degrees of pigment on one brush, a technique essential for any realistic brush painting.
At present this app offers nothing like that so doesn't offer any improvement on what you probably get from your existing painting app.
Procreate is still, by far, the best paint app.

Love it

Version 1.03
I bought this app because 'Drawing and Painting and on the ipad' by D seidi recommended or for doing the exercises in chapter one. I'm so pleased I did. The book is good but assume you're new to the technology and art. But, once you're over that it's authority is clear. She isn't a prize winner for nothing. The app has a wonderful feel about it. I drew about 100 Japanese circles and just trashed them one after the other. I could not or would not do that with paper and ink. There is the real strength of this technology in art. You need your flying time and you get it with this app. My confidence in moving the brush around and how it behaves in south the modest price of the app. I'd recommend it. PS for style I use 53, it feels right too.


Version 1.02
Feel so relaxed using this app. Can't wait to try the Apple pencil with it

What a great sequel...

Version 1.0
...was sceptical at first as I already bought the 1st iteration of this app but this version offers a great deal more...the dry/wet stroke effect is absolutely brilliant which allows for more creative options. My only gripe thus far is the tools bar...on a 6+ too much screen estate is sacrificed due to its large size...make that move up towards the screen like the iPad version and issue goes away...otherwise great app!!

a significant upgrade

Version 1.0
Really enjoying the new features and capabilities
