    Details

    The developers of the popular iLuv Drawing series have applied their step-by-step drawing instructions to the art of drawing people. iLuv Drawing People provides a well-done tutorial that combines audio and animation to instruct even the youngest artist on how to use the app. Included are 22 picture templates along with “blank paper” artists can use to create pictures from scratch. By selecting a template, the user is prompted to trace lines step-by-step to create the picture.

    Once done, the tracing lines disappear, leaving the user-created outline ready for coloring. Coloring tools include a color selector (37 choices), a pencil (3 widths), a crayon (3 widths and a paint bucket option), and an eraser (4 widths, undo and redo, and a clear the page option). Once the drawing is finished, the user can also add stickers (73 choices) and a background (15 choices).

    When the drawing has been completed, users can save their artwork to a Drawing Book, save as a photo, (which saves it to the camera roll for use by other apps), email it (provides it in a .png format), or print it.

    What Diane Liked

    The step-by-step instructions make this an excellent tool for teaching kids (and adults like me) how to draw. This app kept the attention of our 13-year-old, and she was able to transfer the skills she learned from the app to traditional paper and pencil. In fact, I just tested her after a week of not using the app, and she was able to easily recreate the baby drawing on paper.

    The generous amounts of colors, resizable stickers, and backgrounds make this a very fun app to play with and explore. By providing a strong, “Let’s try this,” environment, iLuv Drawing People encourages creativity and provides hours of play time.

    Suggested Enhancement

    We had a great time with this app, so I offer only constructive feedback. One thing we found a little cumbersome was having the undo button available as part of the eraser button option. As a frequent user of undo, I could benefit from it becoming a one-click option, readily available on the drawing screen. We also had a little trouble with “stuttering,” with the lines we were drawing not always appearing immediately. Once we were aware of this, we realized we just had to move slower. The first instinct, however, was to try drawing the line again….again…and again…and again. These multiple tries, of course, slowed the response time even further, which lead to more tries. While totally user error, this resulted in either having to restart the app or waiting several minutes for the poor thing to catch up with the lightning-fast reflexes of my children.

    Overall

    An abundance of art tools and possibilities make iLuv Drawing People an informative and economical drawing class for beginning artists of all ages.
