Faculty: Faculty of Computer Science

Educational Programme: Software Engineering (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2018

As advanced as they are nowadays, modern graphics editors are yet to simulate all the options available in real-life painting and drawing. While successfully imitating many different painting tools, they still lack the control over colour provided by physical palettes, including the ability to create custom multi-colour gradients. Although rare experimental solutions do exist, none of them targets the increasingly popular Android – a mainstream OS among tablet PCs, that are a basically ideal device for digital drawing and painting. The study mainly focuses on liquid palette imitation and colour mixing. The aim of this work is developing an Android drawing application that simulates an actual color mixing palette and is adapted to hardware characteristics of modern tablet PCs. Presumably, it will improve the artists’ drawing experience. The programme is implemented in Java programming language with use of OpenGL ES 2.0 graphical interface. This paper contains 39 pages, 3 chapters, 13 illustrations and 19 references. Keywords: graphical user interfaces, isosurfaces, java, android, opengl.
