Graphite Drawing: Acrylic Brush

Graphite drawing now has a brush tool, allowing digital sketchers to draw more colourful pictures.


Graphite Drawing: Now with undo!

Graphite Drawing now has support for undoing changes. However, there is still plenty to do. Here is a list of features that I hope Graphite will have soon:

  • realistic pencil strokes which vary in strength depending on how fast the user moves their mouse/finger
  • allow switching between different tools (pencil, eraser, paintbrush, etc.)
  • opening and saving files from and to local storage and Ubuntu One
  • events view for listing sketches by date
  • sharing through social networks
  • storing sketches in sketchbooks

Feel free to download the source code at the Graphite Github repository.
