Overlay drawing means having an image in your drawing canvas that you can draw over. This allows you to work with images like Paint by Numbers. Over 700 free tutorials for you to try!

This is one of fifty video guides made for the Paintology drawing app, available free on the Google play store.

Paintology, digital drawing for your phone or tablet, just like the real thing!

In this video, I’m going to show you how to use the overlay drawing on Paintology.

First you press the draw button on the home screen, and you will go to another screen that shows various modes of drawing. Press the overlay button.

This will open up another screen where you can pick out an image of your choice that you can draw or color directly over.

Select an image, I have selected this famous homer simpson character to do some coloring. I use the line brush to color it.

You have access to some great tools whenever you make a coloring, drawing or painting.

The one I use very often is the color palette. I use it for this drawing to pick out the exact colors needed for this coloring exercise.

Select the color picker on top of the menu then go to the color you want to pick, and the brush will automatically take on this color. I selected this blue color in order to complete his shoes and shorts as shown.

You continue coloring like this until you have finished the painting.

The color picker is a very powerful tool and we use it to do many paint By Numbers tutorials. In this way you can rapidly improve your coloring skills while you are having fun!

For more information on these, please go to the video guides on color picker and paint by numbers.
