Another paint tool is on its way to Meta Quest (formerly Oculus Quest) – VR art studio will launch on App Lab on December 10th.
There has been an influx of VR paint apps over the past year, especially for Quest. Now Art Studio VR brings another option to the table.
Set to launch Quest via App Lab on December 10, Art Studio VR lets you unleash your artist and paint on a virtual canvas in a quaint European setting.
The big difference between Art Studio VR and the other available (and upcoming) options is the ability to paint on an imported 3D model, in addition to the standard flat canvas. You can see images of the 3D model painting in the embedded tweet below from Art Studio VR developer Daniel Santalla.
My favorite part of #ArtStudioVR textures 3D models. Makes the texturing so relaxing 😄

As expected, you can use a variety of different brushes, colors and finishes on your canvas or model, with JPEG and PNG export capabilities as well. To see more of the app in action, you can take a look at the trailer on the title’s App Lab page.
If you’re looking for other paint options on Quest, there are quite a few. Brushwork VR is a free WebXR solution with a surprising amount of features, while Painting VR is available on the Oculus Store and was recently updated with an updated user interface and new features.
For something super realistic, Vermillion features the most accurate translation of the oil painting process yet, but is currently only available on PC VR – a version of Quest is in the works and should be released soon.
