The Next Drawball?

Recommended Posts

I posted this in a games thread but I just found this shit:




Drawpile is a Free/Libre networked drawing program that allows multiple people to sketch on the same image simultaneously. It supports the OpenRaster image file format and thus works well with applications such as MyPaint, Krita and GIMP.

I couldn't find it in a search here so I figured I'd post it...  it looks like there are a bunch of public servers, possibly moderated, but it might be a cool way to randomly hang out and draw shit aside from the drawball spamfest.


Has layer support, pen tool, custom brushes, so it's not a terrible quick sketching program.


It also has support for pens / tablets and has various pressure options for different things, so that's cool.  Pretty much anything that works with Windows Ink looks like it will work.  No rotation or tilt support (just tested).


I know there are other HTML5 / browser versions of this kinda thing but most of them are kinda shit.  Thought I'd see if anybody is interested in getting a server going (or oontzing on a public one)?

As a bonus, there are furries.  Coloring tools aren't bad.

So I joined the only room with people in it this late, and there are people actually doing decent manga style sketches there.  We could just host off drawball.net or whatever as a public room and mess with people who showed up while grafftagging the canvas.

I'll try to start a room on their server later tonight and post a link here.   I need to make sure the room won't go down when I log out though, my connection is pretty bad most of the time.

I'd be keen but I didn't grow up with the internet, soooo......, 

This one is really easy.  Just download & install and click a link to a server from the browser and it will open in that;  they use drawpile:// links for their servers.  I didn't have to do any other setup except picking a username, and those are just per-room I think.   The program is pretty standard as far as drawing options go.

Their public server's room listing is @ http://pub.drawpile.net/
