SketchClub

For sketching and painting with some very distinctive styles. What I like best are:

  • Sketch brushes: these are great for shading
  • Pixel brush: can produce beautiful mosaics
  • Vector brush with gradient: for delicate Japanese watercolour effects
  • Zen-like pens: for very expressive drawings and calligraphy.

SketchClub community website is rather uninspiring but accessible from within the App for easy upload: https://app.sketchclub.com

Facebook page is much more inspiring but still does not really do the App justice: https://www.facebook.com/SketchClubApp/
