Infinite Painter: A comprehensive art and drawing tool

April 21, 2012

Lugging around sketchpads and tons of art materials used to be such a pain. Nowadays, art can be done digitally. With the convenience of art programs for computers, and the steady development of technology, it didn’t take long until being able to create pieces of art became possible from the convenience of a mobile device.

Whether you’re passing the time, trying to put an idea down on paper, or simply having fun, there’s an app that artists everywhere are sure to love. Artists, meet your new best friend that you can carry around on your Android device.

Infinite Painter, developed by Sean Brakefield, is an Android app designed to give you a more realistic painting experience. Whether or not you’re a pro in painting, you’ll definitely enjoy working with Infinite Painter. It’s loaded with several features that could mimic actual painting on a canvas.


Infinite Painter packs a lot of features that will surely come in handy to you. When you are drawing or painting, the type of brush that you use is important. This app has several brushes which are carefully designed to mimic the natural brushes used by painters in an actual painting. You’re given six layers to work with and each layer has a variety of options available. You can Merge, Flip and even Duplicate layers.

If you don’t want to start on a blank canvas, you can choose to import an image into Infinite Painter. Whether it’s an image you’ve captured using your device’s camera, an image from your Gallery, or an image from Google Image Search,  you can use Infinite Painter to build it up and even make it better. You can translate, re-size, flip, recolor, or rotate images using the app. Losing what you’re working on is an artist’s worst nightmare, but you don’t have to also worry with Infinite Painter because this app has an auto-save feature to ensure that your work is always saved.

Another great thing about Infinite Painter is that you can work with different types of symmetry, such as X-axis, Y-Axis, Arbitrary Angle, Radial, and Kaleidoscopic symmetry. The app also allows you to preserve the layers so that you can work on them at another time. If you’d like to edit your work in Photoshop, it will be very easy because this app also allows you to save the image with transparency.

To be able to save your work, however, you’ll need to purchase the full version of Infinite Painter. If you use the free version of the app, you can still preserve the layers of your image by saving it as a project file.

You will surely appreciate Infinite Painter’s features because it has a fluid interface that is sure to give you a smooth painting experience. You won’t have to worry about stumbling around the app to learn its features because Infinite Painter provides a tutorial to help you learn how to use every one of them.

If you want an app that will give you a more realistic painting experience you should try Infinite Painter. You can download Infinite Painter from the Google Play Store.
