I am going to attempt to make a finished painting using the Serious Paint app. So far I have found that the top canvas size in this app is 1400 x 1400. You can adjust the settings on the individual brushes, but I have found that if you tweek them too much you get a serious lag problem. So I think I will use the brushes mostly on their original settings with small tweeks. I like the responsiveness of the brushes when they are on original settings. I will let everyone know how well it goes.

One thing I've noticed so far is a bug on my Note 8. The undo button won't work on it, but it works on my Note 10.1. I have emailed the developers and told them about it. So if I mess up, I just have to paint over the mistake like you do on a real canvas. I can live with it, lol.

I managed to fix the bug by clearing the app data so now the undo button works on my Note 8. I like the effects of the brushes and the blending brushes are like painting with oils. The menu is not as user friendly as it could be. I've found that in order to exit from the app you have to save your work and clear the screen and then hit the back button. If you don't do that the back button acts like an undo button on your painting even if you've already saved it. Also, if you go into eraser mode, in order to get out you have to tap the eraser again, just tapping on the brush button won't get you out of eraser mode. A few things like that keep it from being as user friendly as some of the other big painting apps. Overall, the brushes are smooth and respond very well if you don't modify them too much. It's fun to use and is like painting with oils without the turpentine and messy clean up!
