Another Paper app post.  I'm struggling with whether or not I feel like I want to keep using this app or not.  It's fun.  But the brushes don't play nicely together.  Markers don't color over top of brushes very well, for example.  Colored pencil and pen seem to be the only tools that can go over the top of other tools.  It's a fun challenge, but is it a challenge that I want to take or is it a challenge that I'm forced to undergo because of the limits of the program?

Struggle bus

I'm playing with the Paper app by 53, and I'm using the Pencil stylus.  I'll admit that it is pretty fun, but it lacks a lot of things that I would think very important in a digital sketching app.  You can't color pick, and there are no layers.  You also cannot import pic or photos.

 The Pencil stylus is buggy for me at the moment.  Sometimes I will be painting, and all of the sudden it will smudge or it will erase.

Anyway I did this sketch of a bus.  I named it struggle bus because, well struggling.  

I will keep trying this app out, but I may return it before the 30 days and save for a stylus that offers pressure sensitivity.  We will see...
