Being able to collaborate with others on paintings and drawings is a very useful feature, although it's not common for most illustration and design software. Fortunately, collaboration is exactly Drawpile's main selling point. Drawpile lets several users draw on a canvas simultaneously, allowing them to share their drawings and ideas instantaneously with each other.
While collaboration is Drawpile's main focus, this doesn't mean that it is a subpar drawing tool. Drawpile has all of the basic features that one expects from a painting app. It has multi-layer support which can be set to different color and blending modes. The app does not have a wide selection of brushes, sadly, but the brushes that it has available can be customized to create a variety of effects. Like layers, it can be set to different blending modes, but users can also change its opacity, size, hardness, and spacing. Drawpile also has pen-pressure sensitivity support, so it can be used with graphics tablets.
With Drawpile, users have control over the activity in their drawing sessions. Users can join sessions by joining a public one through the server list or by getting a private code from their friend. Once in a session, the host can limit a user's activity. Hosts can lock certain users or layers. They can also restrict actions like image uploading and text box creation. They can also ban users and password-protect sessions.
Draw With Friends
If you have a lot of artist friends then Drawpile is a great way to spend time with them. It's also great for professionals who need to quickly collaborate with a team.
