Current drawing apps aren’t too popular as they’re not accessible to the host of many devices people use, chatting’s not versatile or user-friendly enough to compete with chat sites, and their designs look god-awful like it’s still the 90’s. So with what we’re after, there’s insane potential in this project.
This is the interface. I hope it gives you some sense of what we’re aspiring for. It’s predominantly HTML, CSS, and JS with server-client communication in HTML5’s WebSockets, and some points in PHP. If you’re good with any of these, message me here. I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions. And if you’re critical of anything, nothing’s set in stone. It’s very much a by the community, for the community type of project.
Reminds me of paint chat oekaki, which is a java applet. The best HTML5 drawing apps are closed-sourced and heavily guarded, which means those roll-your-own ‘oekaki boards’ suffer in quality as you mention. Heavily outdated.
But this I like! Looks like you can do anti-aliased ‘painterly’ drawings and traditional ‘pixel’ oekaki drawings.
At the moment we’re hellbent on completing the first build with full-duplex drawing. A lot of JS goes into developing the tools. PHP’s mainly account integration and forum features.
In design there’s a separate UI for mobile, and in fact for anybody good with Photoshop or vector graphics there’s some cool stuff we’re keen to create.

@thatotherguy Hi there. I normally would say this in a pm so I’m going to apologize for saying this in public but I think that it will serve as good reminder to all of us.
I’ve deleted your personal information as a preventive. Spammers can use harvesters to read that information and flood you with unwanted publicity. Although that it is a bit of more work, but if you want to provide that information to someone (or a group of members) I think it is better to do so in a pm.
We do have to remember that what we write on the Internet stays forever
Do pm me if you think that I overstepped.
Regarding your project, it definately looks good.and it would be great to see a HTML5 version of it. Love the possibility of changing the type of brush. As with any application, it will take a bit to get used to it but it looks easy to learn
