Zen Brush 3 is a drawing app focused on the strong yet beautiful feel of
the East Asian ink brush.
Create subtle expressions with the newly added "water" and "color" functionality.
Providing a simple and intuitive user interface imbued with the Zen spirit,
this app is designed to be optimal for performing Zen art.
The adjustable amount of water makes it possible to create expressions ranging from powerful edge effects to the distinctive texture of Asian-ink paintings where ink gradually soaks in Japanese paper.
Effects which were difficult to achieve, such as "nijimi" (bleeding) where colors mix and smooth "bokashi" (blurring), are now available. The drawing engine based on physical simulation reproduces shades ranging from dark, thick ink to light, diluted ink. Try creating subtle artwork that leverages bleeding to create shadowy depictions and light coatings.
You can now use 30 rich colors along with the black ink. Color can be used in all kinds of ways such as color ink paintings, signatures, seals, corrections, accent color, etc. By controlling the amount of water, you can also adjust the mix of colors in your paintings.
Strokes change according to the movement of your finger, providing a sensation just like a real ink brush. The drawing system that simulates a 3D model of an East Asian ink brush provides even more varied and natural styles of brush handling than the previous version.
Layer functionality was added, providing various editing capabilities. You can now import images, move, rotate, scale or reverse left and right. Furthermore, the improved guide display functionality adds extensive settings ranging from adjustable numbers of characters to divisions and grid display.
Supports pressure sensitive styluses. Pleasant drawing sensation thanks to the adjustable brush pressure sensitivity. The tilt sensitivity can also be adjusted for styluses that support tilt. 3D Touch pressure is available for iPhone (6s - XS). The Windows version supports styluses and graphic tablets compatible with Windows Ink.
