Inspire Pro's Brush Sets
The Best Painting App for iPad
Uniquely available on the App Store, painstakingly designed to be beautifully powerful, and meticulously engineered for iPad — Inspire Pro offers an unbelievably realistic and fast painting, drawing, and sketching experience that can be used wherever you go and whenever inspiration strikes.
Paint it.  Blend it.  Love it.
Paint it.  Blend it.  Love it.
Beautiful, wet oil paint brush strokes are accompanied by the stunning blending effects of a dry brush that will absolutely take your breath away. Use just a bit of pressure to graze the canvas and add a soft blur to your artwork or apply stronger pressure to actually blend existing colors together to create entirely new ones.
Sorcery™ Painting Engine
Sorcery™ Painting Engine
Our proprietary painting engine Sorcery™, developed from scratch in-house, takes full advantage of the phenomenal iPad GPU to render brush strokes with laser-sharp sub-pixel precision, brilliant 64-bit color, and incredibly fast speed.
Ultra Fast Rendering
While most other painting apps struggle to keep up with even a sluggish 30 frames per second on iPad, Inspire Pro's Sorcery™ engine renders brush strokes up to a mind‑blowing 120 FPS and then asks for more.

Intuitive and Compelling Design
Intuitive and Compelling Design
Who wants to read a user manual with hundreds of pages just to learn how to use an app?!? We certainly don't, and we didn't want you to have to either. We spent countless hours designing Inspire Pro so that you can let your intuition guide you and discover how to use the many features of the app naturally, without a manual.

Inspire Pro is easy to learn, yet with every new piece of artwork that you create, you will feel rewarded, but also challenged. As your gallery unfolds and evolves, you will be motivated to take your painting and drawing skills to the next level, encouraging you to truly master the app, like the artists featured here.

Start Something New
Start Something New
Start a new painting by choosing a canvas size from one of 3 preset shapes, or any custom width and height, from the New Canvas menu. Once you choose a size, you can import an image onto the new canvas from a variety of different sources like your Photos or iCloud Drive. Imported images can then be positioned, rotated, and scaled onto the new canvas.
Dual Texture Brushes
Dual Texture Brushes
Thanks to the awesome technology behind Sorcery™ and the power of iPad GPUs, Inspire Pro can render two brush textures at 1024 x 1024 resolution each, simultaneously and dynamically. During a brush stroke, "shape" and "surface" textures are combined on the fly to produce incredibly realistic marks on the canvas for mediums like chalk, charcoal, and pastels.
Canvas Playback
Watch your paintings unfold, stroke-by-stroke, with Canvas Playback. Each brush stroke is recorded automatically while you paint, without any loss of speed. You can watch the video of your artwork at anytime from the gallery or export it at high-quality 1080p. Mesmerize your family, friends, and the world with your Inspire Pro skills and Canvas Playback.
Brush Selection
Brush Selection
An astounding 150 high-quality brushes await you — they are divided into 15 useful sets: Oil Paint, Airbrushes, Spray Paint, Paint Splatter, Graphite Pencils, Wax Crayons, Markers, Chalk, Charcoal, Pastels & Conté, Patterns, Textures, Basic Shapes, Complex Shapes, and Shape Outlines. All brushes can be used as a wet brush, dry brush (blending), or eraser.
Brush Size and Rotation
The size and rotation of each individual brush can be visually adjusted with pin-point accuracy using the large preview of the Brush menu. Inspire Pro automatically saves the selected size and rotation for each type of brush and brush mode independently, allowing you to pick up right where you left off after selecting a new brush, quickly and easily.

Deep Brush Stroke Customization
Deep Brush Stroke Customization
Customize brush strokes to the finest detail from the Stroke menu, with over 20 different settings across many categories. Whether you are setting the pressure effect, paint blending mode, scatter percentage, or the amount of taper a brush stroke is applied with, Inspire Pro gives you full control of how brush strokes will look and feel on the canvas.
Apple Pencil
Apple Pencil
Brush strokes react instantly to the applied pressure, tilt angle, and orientation of Apple Pencil, giving you unprecedented creative control on a mobile device. Use the double-tap gesture with the 2nd generation Apple Pencil to perform actions like toggling the dry brush, opening the Brush menu, or invoking the eyedropper — all configurable from the Settings.

For your next drawing or sketch, give one of the Graphite Pencils a try with Apple Pencil and you'll quickly forget that you're not using an actual pencil and paper.
Pick a Color, any Color
Pick a Color, Any Color
Choose any color you can dream of with ease using the intuitive Color menu. HSB and RGB sliders accompany a large color circle and square to help you explore and adjust colors to precisely find the perfect one. Your latest colors are saved automatically for you in a palette while you paint and you can also manually save your favorite colors to another palette with drag and drop.
Quick Change
Adjust the size and opacity of the current brush using Quick Change, a fast and easy way to change common brush settings without having to open a menu. A simple touch and slide to the left or right from the top of the screen instantly hides all of the hotpsots around the edges and shows you a large preview of your brush, so you can focus on getting it just right in a matter of seconds.
