10 June 2021

So many new features this month, and some of them are hotly anticipated. Eraser Ever since the Brush Ninja 2 release the most commonly requested new feature has been to add an Eraser. With the switch to a vector based rendering engine I had to remove the eraser. I felt...

Now you can use Webcam images as Backgrounds

26 February 2021

This week I have added a feature nobody was asking for, but I thought would be fun. Webcam background images. The idea is that you can take photos with your webcam and then animate on top of them. This means you could draw little cartoons of people dancing on your...

Brush Ninja Newsletter

31 January 2021

I’ve wanted a way to reach the creatives who use Brush Ninja for a while, so I’ve decided to setup a newsletter. Previously I’ve had Patreon (which is great for beta stuff), Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram - but I’m only one man and I find it hard to update all...

Surprisingly (to me) I haven’t had many comments about adding text in Brush Ninja. It was a highly requested feature until I added it, and then people used it. But I wasn’t entirely happy. I wanted to be able to edit it. And now that I can move, scale and...

Custom Color Palette

29 April 2020

One of the most requested features is more colors in the color palette. In version 1 I intentionally kept the palette limited. This was for 2 reasons. To make Brush Ninja easy to use To encourage creativity through limitations Having now spent 2 years working on, and thinking about, Brush...

Modifying Objects Properties

20 April 2020

I think modifying object properties after they have been created is a really powerful thing. This will give us the ability to make some much more creative animations. Currently in Brush Ninja V2 you can change objects colours after they have been drawn. I think this will allow some quite...
