Help / Re: Is it possible to make pixel art with this app?
on: October 21, 2021, 12:22:50 AM
Thanks Andreas. I needed that info. I also needed to check "Hard Edges" before it worked.

Next up: many pixel art programs feature a dithering brush with different dithering choices (see Pixaki). Is that possible to achieve in ASP?

When I use two fingers to pinch-and-zoom or rotate in the reference window, it only works a fraction of the time. The other times, it goes into color picking.

I thought it might be my setting to use the finger as the color picker, so I changed that to "Normal", but the problem persists even after restarting.

It is very streaky. It worked 5 out of 6 times and then it didn't work for 6 times straight.

I then suspected my long press delay setting. I changed it from 0 to 2 and now the reference window works correctly. I can even go down to 0.2 and possibly 0.1.

*shrug* Maybe this needs a fix or just a warning.

I'm on Artstudio Pro 2.1.3 on iOS 13.1.1 on iPad Pro 12.9 2nd gen.

Thanks. Regarding turning off the animation when using a single finger, this is a strange coupling to me. Also, I'm using single finger for color picking, which is awesome.

The animation could just be a separate preference independent of which technique brought up the quick menu.

The new intro video has a nice pencil. Playing the video at half speed, I was able to pause it at 23:16 and see that his brush group is called "Real Pencil Index":

However, I have no such group in Art Studio Pro 2.2.12. Is he using 2.3 beta in the video? Or did he import these? Or is my app instance deficient?

Finger-as-eyedropper is great. Thanks.

In case you missed it, there is a "Tutorials" forum here:

But I realize that doesn't emphasize painting which is what you're asking about.

Borodonte does his paintings in Artstudio Pro on iOS:

Most if not all painting tutorials that use Photoshop should be easily adapted to Artstudio Pro. You can even import the brushes that artists share.


Help / Better pencil

Can anyone point me to a better pencil brush than the ones that come with Artstudio Pro on iOS? I'm looking for something that has a stronger pencil texture and look.

Having an instant color picker would be nice. Currently you have to press, hold and wait. While this is configurable, an alternative would be to have a thumb-accessible button on the side to do this without delay.

I would like the Quick Menu to appear immediately rather than being animated as a growing thing that I have to watch before I can use it.

The ability to add more buttons is great, but I'm not sure why I can't go to 9. The center is empty, but I don't need it to be empty. Adding one more button would increase the commands by 12.5%.   ;D

Help / Paint/draw with transparency
on: September 02, 2019, 12:16:58 AM
I'm coming from another app where in addition to selecting a color, you can also select transparency or "full alpha". Is this possible in Artstudio Pro for iOS?
