The app has a library of vector shapes that you can scale, colour, duplicate, flip and rotate to create a design, logo or illustration. Transparency and drop shadows can also be added and there are three output options: jpg, png and sgv. The simplicity of using predetermined shapes and lines to create your artwork makes it fun and challenging to use, I like to think of it as a sketch book for vectors.
This is a quick illo created with some of the app's shapes from their special Halloween package. The first pic shows the finished illustration in Assembly.  Then, to add more drama I exported as a jpg and manipulated the file with PhotoToaster, a basic photo editor and effects app.  Happy Halloween!

I'm using procreate and this is my first attempt at using the app. I'll be adding to the drawing every couple of days or so.
