I just bought an Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy S6 lite 2022 version with pen) and wanted to find the best drawing apps. I wanted an app to create vector art such as icons for UI design, and pixel artworks or vector designs to apply to T-shirts and to other things such as canvas or poster art and other objects - anything from wrapping paper to bean bags for my Etsy and Redbubble stores.
It took me a couple of days to find, download and review all these drawing apps for Android (and I'm sure there are many more):
Ibis Paint X
I judged each app on:
Layers? How many
Pixel or vector?
What it’s used for
I found a lot of the apps quite clunky with poor User interfaces and/or not very intuitive. Most artists and designers want an app that intuits similar to real life drawing tools - and for professional designers, workflow i.e. speed are also very important if you want to remain competitive.
I've just pasted in my numbers sheet below because I don't have time to program in a table right now:
For my general purposes, I found that [Autodesk] Sketchbook came in first, and Concepts came in second. They do different things in different ways however, so I think it's worth having both.
Below is the best Autodesk tutorial I found, which got me started quickly
