Zen Painter

Zen Painter is a prototype painting app. Painting is generative, meaning brushes will take into account mouse speed and angle of the stroke. Sit back and let go, be creative with how you can control the stroke.

If you draw anything cool be sure to show and tweet me @kartik_2d

Hey there! I saw this game and it is pretty cool. One small question though. Is it made with Game Maker? No problem with using GM and I develop using it too. If it is, then this is a fine example of how amazing it can be. What gave it away? The loading screen. nothing wrong with the default loading screen(I use it too). Just wanted to tell you you are doing a good job! Keep it up.


I'm very much a fan of the attention to stroke speed in this game. It's a lot of fun, and great practice

Very cool idea. I'd liked to see where this goes in the future.

wow!!! thanks for the vid!!

Can you add a realistic brush, and we can set the size


... not realistic


Not realistic, but its fun :D

They should put a system of saving, so to save the progress of the drawing, as well as being able to save it as a jpg file and others, very good work, I hope and keep polishing this!
