If you've ever wondered if there is a Procreate Android version or perhaps a free Procreate version,then, you don’t have to worry too much. If you use the Google platform mobile app, then, you have some applications that can earn your respect in the regard.

If you want to encourage yourself to draw or learn Lettering and go on to express your artistic vein, you can wear it at any time of the day with your tablet or even from your smartphone. We know that the Procreate application is exclusive for iOS, but if you have an Android device, there are a few drawing applications on Google Play, which are worth knowing. Especially if you have a stylus to make the strokes. A stylus is a very useful tool so if you don't have one, you might want to consider getting one to effectively enjoy the best experience with your sketching app.

If you like to sketch, don't miss our selection with the sketching drawing apps for Android.

Here is a list of the top sketching apps for Android:

1) Sketchbook Pro:

Sketchbook Pro is the most downloaded drawing app on Google Play. It is also known as the Sketch App. We are talking about a free alternative to Procreate that is widely used by professionals in the sector. Like Procreate, Sketchbook Pro has a minimalist interface, focused on maximizing the user experience, helping them to focus more on drawing than interacting with menus.The application has pencils, inks, markers and more than 190 customizable brushes, which can incorporate both figures and text.

Sketchbook Pro was developed by Autodesk a few years ago but it wasn't until 2018 that it became a free drawing app. This step helped it gain a huge following over the years. We will be able to download Sketchbook Pro from any Android device and it is also available for iOS. There is even a version of Sketchbook Pro optimized for Windows 10, so we can also have it for PC. This can be very practicalif we need to make the shading or final finishes from a larger monitor.

If you are looking for an alternative to Procreate for Android, we would definitely recommend that you encourage yourself to install Sketchbook Pro taking advantage of the fact that it has become a completely free application.

2) Adobe: Illustrator Draw and Photoshop Sketch

Adobe has decided to put the batteries with mobile devices, and Adobe Illustrator Draw is one of the latest bets of the company. Unlike Procreate we are talking about a vector drawing application.

Adobe Illustrator Draw is also a free Android drawing app. In addition, we will be able to save our drawings in compatible Adobe extensions to be able to open them in other design programs such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. As a novelty, the application has been integrated with Behance and we will be able to publish our work directly on the platform and receive comments from Draw.

Adobe Photoshop Sketch is another free application from Adobe, available for Android devices. This app only includes five customizable brushes and layers with transform, opacity, and blending tools. As with the previous one, Illustrator Draw, we will be able to save our drawings in PSD format to open them later with Photoshop.

Photoshop Sketch also allows us to share our creatives with other artists and graphic designers by publishing our project on Behance. It is worth mentioning that Adobe Fresco could have headed this article, but as of this writing, it is not yet available for Android. Only for iOS and Windows.

3) Ibis Paint X

This is another alternative to Procreate for Android, which is also quite a versatile drawing app. In it, we will be able to make use of more than 800 fonts, along with more than 300 brushes. Like Procreate, Ibis Paint X also allows us to record the entire development process to be able to share it later on social networks.Its interface is also quite simple and easy to use.

4) ArtFlow

ArtFlow is an application specialized in digital painting and drawing. It also has a fairly intuitive interface.Although it is a free application, we will need to buy a licensein order to activate it on all the devices that we have associated with our Google account. The free version includes only 25 brushes, and it will only allow us to create up to 3 layers. In order to unlock the rest of the brushes and some functions, a small payment will be required.

5) Infinite Painter

Procreate may not be available for Android, but we have options that can beat it. Infinite Painter was chosen as one of the 9 best applications to draw on Android by Engadget. It contains a wide range of natural brushes and allows us to create our own. Like its predecessors, it has a minimalist and intuitive interface, perfect for concentrating on drawing without distractions.

Infinite Painter includes more than 80 customizable brushes, and a few tools for perspective, transformation, layer customization, gradients, patterns or filters. Once again, this application also resembles Procreate and has the Timelapse function with which we can record our entire drawing process. Of course, at the moment this application is only free for a period of 7 days.

There are other apps on the Play Store that allow the imagination of artists to come to live via drawing and sketching. The list above is just about some of the best apps available for this purpose. If you have decided to develope a personalized or commercial drawing or sketching app, our app developers at Hyperlink InfoSystem can assist you.
