    As the title says, I'm looking an app to do digital coloring sheets with iPad and Apple Pencil. It doesn't have to be free, just support the Apple Pencil and be able to import images from the photos library.

    I tried a few and deleted them. The only two I have kept so far are Pigment and Lake. I'm not sure but I think they support images from the photo library, but you have to pay extra for that. Pigment is good but I don't want to pay a monthly subscription fee. Would prefer it if they also offered the ability to buy individual drawings for 99 cents.

    Those are nice, but I was really looking for an app that I can use with coloring pages found on the Internet, like I think I could do with something like Pixelmator.

    Drawing Pad will do this apparently. I haven't tried it, but I noticed it in the description I skimmed when grabbing the link. So I updated my version.

    Drawing Pad by Murtha Design Inc.

    Pigment is fantastic for coloring and I have imported pages that I have found on the internet and while buggy and prone to crashing on import, it will get them there after a try or two. You can also import from iCloud and Dropbox drives.

    You can also import photos to color, but I find that is a big hit and miss as far as being something you would want to color.

    Edit: Import is likely a Premium only feature, however.

    I tried Pigment, but I prefer Lake. How well does Pigment work with Pencil ?

    Pigment works great with the  Pencil, but I have never tried Lake, so I cannot make a comparison. Sounds like I need to try Lake :)

    Edit: OK, Lake is kinda nice. I do prefer the tools and textures (particular with premium) and some of the nuances of shading with the same color that you can do with Pigment a bit better. But those kinds of things come down to preference.
