ArtStudio is a very nice application and contains almost everything you could expect from a design program. Tap on the lower-right side of your window to reveal all available tools. Brushes are on the left, and tapping and holding on a displayed colour well will reveal a comprehensive colour chooser window.
ArtStudio allows you to work with up to six layers, which is what most high-end Apple iPad design programs offer.
The app also features a series of filters, and lets you export work as a multi-layered PSD file so you can edit it further elsewhere.
