Since my last blog post Infinite Painter has undergone a massive transformation. It has been totally redesigned. I am part of the beta testing group and I can say that the developer Sean Brakefield is working very hard to improve this app. I really like all the improvements and changes and this app just gets better and better. It has lots of new features now including better natural media brushes and tools. It has 83 brushes that are split into 10 categories: Graphite, Grain, Ink, Spray, Bristle, Flow, Quill, Harmony, Mixed, and Blend. Basically these mimic pencils, charcoal, ink pens, airbrush, oil/acrylic brushes, watercolor, calligraphy, harmony project brushes, texture brushes, and blending brushes.
Here are the brushes, pens, etc.
The UI has been redesigned and now has a very nice tool bar that can be moved on the left side, right side, top, or side corners. This bar shows the current brush, its size, color, opacity, and the eraser. You can drag the color out and it changes into a color picker, which is very handy. Also if you tap on the color circle the color palette will pop up. You can set it to diferent views such as the sliders, color palette, or the circle.
In the upper right hand corner is the tools menu, layers icon, and basic functions menu. There are lots of tools that have been added. The first row has the transform tool, scissors, fill, tool, gradient tool, and patterns. The transform tool has flip horizontal and vertical, you can move your drawing, or rotate it. The scissors tool will cut out your selection and you can paste it wherever you want. You can also use the scissors to make a custom brush. The gradient tool has three settings: linear, radial, and sweep. The pattern tool has tons of patterns that you can use or you can make your own patterns and save them. There are also several paper textures including canvas, stucco and more.
You can also choose from 4 modes: paint, clone, edit and select to clone pictures or edit them.
Here is an example of one of my recent paintings in the new and improved Infinite Painter. Prints of this painting are available at http://www.artpal.com/ellietaylorart
