There are tons of handy Android apps out there for just about any profession and hobby you can think of. So of course, it comes as no surprise that there are tons available for digital artists as well. In fact, there are a countless number of Android apps that promise features that would interest a digital artist.
So, which apps are the best out of them all? In this article, I will list the four best Android apps to have if you are a digital artist.
Sketchbook Pro/Sketchbook Mobile
A definite must-have for any digital artist, Sketchbook Pro and Sketchbook Mobile are the perfect apps for drawing on the go. To clarify, Sketchbook Pro is for 10″ tablets and Sketchbook Mobile is for anything smaller, such as a 7″ tablet or a phone.
When using either Sketchbook Pro or Sketchbook Mobile you have access to a wide variety of drawing tools, each with multiple settings and brush sizes. Sketchbook Pro and Sketchbook Mobile both also includes layers and supports pressure sensitivity with certain tablets and phones.
Adobe Photoshop Touch
The power of Photoshop now in the palm of your hand! With Adobe Photoshop Touch you have access to many of the same features you would come to expect from Photoshop, such as filters, layers, and selection tools.
Adobe Photoshop Touch also allows you to save your work to the Adobe Creative Cloud so you can access your files on the desktop version of Photoshop to edit them further.
While the main app is designed to work with tablets only, Adobe Photoshop touch is also available for phones under the name “Adobe Photoshop Touch for phones,” which still includes all of the aforementioned features.
Do you often find yourself having trouble picking out a good color palette when painting or coloring a drawing? Color Pal is the perfect solution to that problem.
Color Pal gives you a huge selection of color palettes to choose from. Just select a color you want to use and Color Pal will do the rest, showing you all the color palettes that use the color you chose.
When you pick a color palette, Color Pal will give you the HEX, RGB, and CMYK color values, so no matter what you’re using you can be sure you have the correct values.
Fresco Paint Pro
Fresco Paint Pro is the perfect app for painting on the go. Fresco Paint Pro has many useful features to make painting on your Android device simple and easy, including layers, filters, and twelve different brushes to choose from.
Fresco Paint Pro also lets you export your work to Adobe Photoshop format, letting you edit your painting even further.
