Hey folks. I've just finished writing an app called Canvas that lets you paint in an environment similar to the brushes app for the iPhone. It works perfect on my MyTouch, but I need it tested on some newer phones before the full release.
I am also looking for artists who can create something worthy enough to be shown off in the market. I created the eye you see in the screen shots in about 30 minutes (with my minimal artistic talent).
Multiple Layer Support
- There are plenty of drawing applications on the market, but none of them support multiple layers with full editing capabilities (transparencies). Images can be exported as a .psh to save the layers, or exported as .png to flatten it.
- Most apps have a fairly slow and clunky interface for changing brush types or colors. With Canvas, it's literally a two click process, all without opening a separate screen away from the image, which makes everything much more fluid.
Full Multitouch Support
- If the phone supports it, Canvas uses multitouch for both zooming and panning, meaning you never have to leave the canvas to change your perspective. For those without support, there are pan and zoom tools in the palette.
Enhanced Color Picker
- I also wrote an advanced color picker that allows the artist to select a color based on HSV, or specify exact numbers in RGB, HSV, or Hexidecimal. Canvas also allows you to keep a palette of 10 colors that can easily be switched to to avoid the hassle of using multiple colors.
The app is free for a very short time on the market. Search "Canvas" or "com.guynoir.PaintShopPro".
