ArtStudio is a professional drawing / painting application. It uses advanced mathematics to attain the highest level of quality, at the same time offering incredible performance achieved through numerous code optimizations. See ArtStudio in action:

Old movie with dolphin:

FORUM/gallery: 4.5/5
"ArtStudio is kind of like the Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop of iPhone art applications: there are many functions that you just wouldn’t be able to find in a simple drawing app, and probably some you didn’t think of." 5/5
"I’ve dabbled in quite a few painting and drawing iPhone apps and this one has 'em all beat by a long shot." 4/5
"When comparing it to Brushes or iSketch, it’s easy to recommend ArtStudio as it offers more features, functionality and value than either of these currently offer."

ArtStudio employs a unique line smoothing algorithm, developed specifically for this app. The application is a perfect companion for professional artists, but it still remains a fantastic tool for beginners - it contains drawing lessons showing step-by-step instruction on drawing various types of images.
