What have you found for creating artwork on the Note 2? Specifically using the S-pen.
S-note is ok, but rather limited in settings. S-paper is gimmicky. Other's?

Take a look at: SketchBook & LayerPaint...Snapseed is great for photos. I am still experimenting so I cannot give a definitive answer on the best one.

I remember SketchBook being pretty good from the iOS days. Looks like it's here in the Android universe as well. (For both tablet and mobile.)

I just found brilliant app called 'VirtualTablet'.
It's not drawing app but if you use this app with connected PC, you can take advantage of existing well-known applications like Sketch-book pro or Photoshop.
If you move your S-Pen on your Galaxy Note, this app transfer the exact movement to the connected PC so that you can actually draw on PC.

I think it could pretty much replace tablet digitizers from Wacom.

check it out on Google Play: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e...nnysidesoft.VirtualTablet.lite&token=ZeFIG2at

Wow, Snapseed is really cool ! I just now downloaded and played around with this app. Looks like Snapseed is made by Nik Software. I had once paid $300 for the Nik Color Efex version 1 as a Photoshop Plug-in several years ago, and had used that countless thousands of times to create great looking enhanced images. It's cool to be able to do some nice image enhancements simply using my Note 2 phone versus Photoshop with my computer. Is Snapseed really a free app? I would have paid for this app!

Another really useful Android app to create vector art is Vector Artist
It's kind of like having proper PC vector art software on your android... almost! It saves in SVG which can be used with most vector art software. And also you can share the PNGs on Tumblr or Dropbox (if you have them installed) which is useful.

It works brilliantly on the Nexus 7 so I would presume it would also work great on the Galaxy Note especially with a pen! Let me know! :D

The newest, paid Photoshop app, PS Touch, is FINALLY upgraded - has so many features that there is a huge learning curve, much like the real PS for your PC. But if you are into photography, it looks like it is the definitive photo app at this point. I was so disappointed at the original Photoshop app, it was worthless - but it just went to priceless with the newest version.

Ps touch is freakin awesome. I use it on my note 2 and note 8. SPEN is an invaluable tool with this app. There is a bit if a learning but only because it has so many cool tools. Ive had to watch several vids just to learn what each tool does.

Ever since I purchased my Galaxy Note 10.1 at the start of this year, I have been on the hunt for a good vector drawing tool. I have only a few criteria I am looking for:
  1. Needs to have a Pen Tool
  2. Needs to have a Blob Tool
  3. Needs to import and export as image files as well as vector files.

Those who are familiar with Adobe Illustrator might be nodding their heads in agreement. Here is my experience so far:

InfiniteDesign
On the surface, this program meets my needs. It has a proper pen tool, a free hand drawing tool (not Blob, but I'll take it), and it imports and exports the file types I need. However, the program in it's current state is very buggy. zooming forces shapes to resize at their own random sizing. In fact, if it weren't for this problem, I'd be set! Also, the program slows greatly as you add more detail. this may be a limitation of the hardware though. hopefully these issues will be addressed by the creators.

Vector Artist
A much simpler program, this app has a nice pen tool, a free hand tool (not Blob, again), but no ability to import an image.

ScribMaster
While i prefer this free hand tool the most, it still insn't a blob tool. at least, i don't think it is since i cannot edit a line once drawn, as far as i can tell. there is no pen tool, but it can import and export the file types I need.

I hope this helps someone in their search. I am open to any suggestions of other apps to try.

Thanks!

First try at sketchbook mobile. I'm in love. I had so much fun drawing this. Thus, I totally recommend it :)
