Paper by FiftyThree has become the reason that I reach for my iPad lately. It’s simply an amazing outlet for creativity that strikes an unrivaled balance between artistic freedom and simplicity. If you haven’t gotten your hands on it yet, you’re missing out.
Designers, painters and even wannabe artists like myself are flocking to Paper and churning out truly outstanding works of art. Today we’re going to take a look at fifty-three of the best Paper sketches and paintings that I’ve seen.
Six tools, nine colors. That’s it. Paper by FiftyThree is an app that’s defined not by what it does have, but what it doesn’t. There are no layers, you can’t change your brush size, and undos are limited.
The impressive part is, somehow this simplicity manages to not only avoid being frustrating, but actually transcend to a point of being refreshingly unique. Instead of being distracted by a million toys and buttons, you’re forced to focus on that empty canvas. The app pushes you to create, not to fiddle with features.
The tools that are available are so incredibly well implemented that amazing artwork seems to fall out of nearly everyone who opens the app. Don’t believe me? Check out the proof below.
