Pigment – A New Adult Colouring App by Pixite

Pixite LLC announced today the release of Pigment 1.0, the only coloring book app to support freehand coloring, for iPhone and iPad. Pigment’s wide assortment of tools like color pencils and markers, and built-in support for Apple Pencil and 3D Touch makes digital coloring feel like coloring on actual paper. Pigment also stands out with its 200+ hand curated, professionally drawn illustrations, 8 different kinds of pencils, markers and brushes, and an unlimited number of colors to choose from.

Research has shown that coloring and doodling on paper have substantial therapeutic effects by lowering stress and anxiety, and improving relaxation and concentration. By allowing artists to color using finger strokes, Apple Pencil, or a third-party stylus, Pigment can offer those same positive therapeutic effects on the iPhone and iPad — much more so than tap-to-fill coloring book apps currently on the App Store.

By varying the strokes, the coloring tool, and tool opacity and size, each piece of artwork takes a life of its own like never before. The size and opacity of the tools can always be adjusted using the intuitive onscreen controls. Furthermore, 3D Touch enabled iPads and iPhones, and the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil take the controls to the next level by allowing the user to change the opacity using pressure. Using the Apple Pencil, the user can even control the shape of the tip by changing direction and tilt. The outcome is the most realistic coloring experience on a digital device.

Color selection is often a challenge for the coloring book artist, especially when there is an unlimited number of colors to choose from. Pigment’s innovative approach is 14 hand selected palettes of 9 colors, with a shade control for each color. The palettes offer a cohesive combination of colors, a great starting point for anyone. In addition, artists are able to select any shade of any color in the palette instantly by using Pigment’s shade control. Not only does the shade control save time in selecting similar colors, it lets the user access an unlimited number of colors in the simplest way possible.

Pigment also makes it easy to share completed pieces with friends and family by email, SMS text, Facebook, Instagram, and other social networks.

Pigment is a free app with an optional subscription to the Pigment Premium Access service, the key to the entire library of 200+ professionally drawn illustrations and updates to new books. Premium Access also unlocks the saving of non-watermarked, high-resolution images of artwork, up to 4096×4096 pixels.
