Mischief comes with a professional stroke representation that brings you multiple pixel brushes and vector scalability.

Furthermore, Mischief provides you with an infinite canvas, making it much easier to work without being constrained by space.

Based on the power of modern GPUs, Mischief provides you with great performance for each of the available artworks.

Moreover, Mischief is very easy to use and intuitive, doesn’t require a manual or tutorial and you can easily get right on the job after starting the application.

All paper styles, tools, pens and layers can be accessed at any given time from the right side of the window, making it very easy to create beautiful art on a Mac.

Version 1.10:

We’ve added three features from the top of our user request list:
Support for applying free transforms to rectangular selections in-place, allowing you to adjust scale, position, and rotation without redrawing
A cursor option that shows the pen size so you can see the area that will be affected when you draw or erase
An option to have the pen width scale automatically when zooming the canvas, allowing you to achieve consistent line widths when zooming in and out during drawing or inking

For more information on these new features, see our updated users guide.
In addition, we have fixed bugs reported by our users, improved memory use during file saves, and made it possible to install Mischief on PCs that have a modified directory structure.
We are now registered Mac developers; Mischief 1.10 has been code signed and verified by Apple.
