Zen Brush is an app that allows you to easily enjoy the feeling of using an ink brush to write or to paint. It allows anyone to easily perform fluent strokes while not compromising on the fascinating texture of a real ink brush. Create works that radiate the right atmosphere by choosing the best background template from our large collection.
More brush-like than a real brush.
The app includes a new drawing engine based on a 3D model of an East Asian ink brush. Strokes change according to the movement of your finger, providing a sensation just like a real ink brush. An even more varied and deep expressiveness is now possible. More Info »
The beauty of light and shade.
By adjusting the thickness of the ink, you can reproduce shades ranging from dark, thick ink to light, diluted ink. Try creating subtle artwork by combining shadowy depictions and light coating.
Great variety of styles.
Enhance your work’s expressiveness by choosing from a collection of 92 rich background style templates.
Add fine details by zooming in to the canvas using gestures (pinch out/pinch in). Use 2-finger tap to quickly toggle between normal and zoomed display (zoom magnification of 100%).
Use the guide lines as reference for laying out your painting. Use them for horizontal, vertical and central positioning, or as a reference for character size, to help you create well balanced artwork.
Finger pressure simulation.
You can express thickness from stroke strength even without a pressure sensitive stylus thanks to a feature that simulates brush pressure based on the touch area on the screen.
Support for styluses.
Works with a wide range of stylus pens. Supports button shortcut settings, palm rejection, etc. Furthermore, you can adjust the brush sensitivity level (5 levels) in Zen Brush 2 to create your own preferred drawing feel.
