Final Verdict:

Line Brush is a cool iPhone app to draw on photos. It is great for those who love to draw and paint on photos. The app has really cool pens, pencils, and brushes with real looking strokes which gives an impression of real drawing, painting. The option for adjusting opacity of color and size of brush makes it more comfortable to use app. This app is really worth a try. I really wish they gave an option of a blank canvas as well, in case I need to create a painting from scratch; probably I will do that by just taking a photo of a White paper ;)
