Yeah, instagram is the same as my login name here. There are speedpaint for this picture also.

Yeah, current panels size is ok.

And the current selection/deselection does actually does work immediately in 1 step, if you swipe right far enough. :)

Oh, sometimes apps definitely need manual)

100 layers is a lot, hard to concentrate on them) I use from 2 to 10 most of the time at the same time) biggest number of layers was around 50 I guess.

How many layers do you usually work on?

Grouping layers is a fast way to make lots of layers visible and invisible with one tap.

Speaking of current selection by swipes. It’s not the best realization: swipe right -> select, swipe right ->, swipe right -> select, etc. That’s really long time actions. I’d remove this 2 step action. Swipe right should lead to immediate selection/deselection.

Beta 749

Thanks. That’s much better.

And thanks for light theme for gallery. Big relief for eyes.

Personally, I'm not keen to extremely precise drawing. But possibility to draw ellipse from center point can be quite useful on all sorts of wheels and similar things.

Previous two settings for pencil and finger was just fine. It wasn’t confusing, because it was in different sections.

When I draw I quite often slightly touch screen with the middle of little finger and it registers as a color pick. I guess everybody hold his hand differently, that’s why what is ok for the one is not suits for another.

I tried to duplicate standard brush from mixer category. It was geometric mixer or dust mixer, don’t remember for sure which one. App froze. I restarted ipad. App was still frozen. I uninstalled beta and installed it again. When i tried to open several standard brush categories, app froze. For example rakes. Uninstalled and installed once again. Didn’t help.

Now I installed previous build and it seems it works ok.

I use pencil double tap for eye dropper. And when my finger is tired of these double taps, I use holding pencil on screen. I really can’t understand how people use finger to color pick. It’s so long and uncomfortable. The only moment when color picking with pencil hold can be frustrating is when you work on small details, so you need to turn it off or make delay longer.

I guess dragging is temporary. The best solution is after editing. All of these finger dragging are imprecise and hard to control.

Long press delay from apple pencil settings is removed. So you can’t color pick now with long pencil press. You have to enable color pick with finger. And now you can color pick with finger and pencil in pencil only mode. If I use only pencil mode, I don’t want any finger actions in it. Now I accidentally color pick with palm touches. Very frustrating!

I’d love to share but unfortunately I don’t have any pieces with it that aren’t under NDA right now. However, I found a nice example online. In this piece you can see the hatching technique with straight lines, and you can also see that there is variability in the line weight across strokes (especially in that cheek area under the eye on the right side of the image). I think this piece was done with an actual pen, but I’d love to be able to do this technique in Art Studio Pro, with pressure dynamics added to line mode.

There are many styles, you can find a lot of examples by searching for cross hatching. In my work, I love to use straight lines when hatching.

Btw, I saw that live preview for auto shape came into the beta! Very cool. It seems a bit laggy in this iteration, at least on my iPad Pro 2018. But very promising! Hope it gets super snappy in upcoming iterations!


On close lookup I see small curves on some lines. So it is not made with straight line tool in digital apps or with ruler and pen in traditional. But I see your point about convenient hatching.

Thanks. Not really, these hours were subdivided for few weeks in real time.
