ASKetch is a simple black & white procedural sketching program for drawing with your fingers. It is designed from the ground up to take advantage of the multi-touch interface of the iPad and the iPhone, allowing you to forget about the tools and concentrate on your art. It stays out of your way so you can simply draw. It is perfect for both beginners and advanced artists; from figure drawing to cartoons to abstract masterpieces; easy to pick up and hard to put down.
Features and functionality:
A very fast and buttery drawing experience. Highly optimized to minimize any lag.
Use a two finger tap to show the toolbar.
Three distinct pencils types: use a swipe gesture on the pencil button to switch back and forth between hard and soft drawing modes. Tap the selected soft pencil to toggle between light and dark.
Zoom with two fingers when the toolbar is displayed.
20 Levels of undo/redo. Swipe the undo/redo button to toggle back and forth.
To configure your pencil, use two fingers to pinch and rotate. This resizes the blue focus circle. The smaller the circle, the more focused/darker the drawing will be. The bigger the circle the more pronounced the procedural interaction with previous lines, and the lighter it starts out.
Rotation of the pencil circle changes the line width.
To configure your eraser, also use two fingers to pinch and rotate.
Rotation affects eraser transparency. Pinching controls the size of the brush.
Use of a stylus is not recommended, since ASKetch is optimized for multi-touch gesturing.
