SketchBook for Everybody!

At Autodesk, we believe creativity starts with an idea. From quick conceptual sketches to fully finished artwork, sketching is at the heart of the creative process. You never know when a great idea will strike, so access to fast and powerful creative sketching tools is an invaluable part of any creative process.

For this reason, we are excited to announce that the fully featured version of SketchBook is now FREE for everyone!

We added new features to further help with drawing. We looked at what you use in SketchBook desktop that wasn't in mobile and beyond.
·        Perspective Guides, with 1, 2, and 3 point perspective guides, a snapping toggle, vanishing point lock, and horizon line visibility.
·        Customize, Infinite, and Constrained Grid tools.  
·        Curve ruler, for drawing curves you can’t get with the Ellipse tool.
·        Support for the new Apple Pencil (2nd generation), which includes its double-tap functionality.
·        Support for Scan Sketch for the new iPad.

Thank you for making this app!! 🤩🤩

Hi ☺️ I want to say thank you for making this app! Last night I was trying to draw anime style characters in a notebook, and for about 3 minutes this morning I kind of tried again, but none my pictures are that great 😅. I’ve been wanting to get procreate, but it’s £9.99 so I’m not allowed to. As I said, I’ve been wanting to draw anime, and I found this, which I’ve kinda looked at before, that looked a bit like procreate, so I sent the request for it and downloaded it. I managed to draw an anime-style character that I’m quite happy with (it’s not amazing anime but still pretty good). With this app I’ve kinda achieved my goal of learning how to draw anime (although I’ve just used one of the many ways to draw it) so thank you for making this app and I’m sure I’ll use it for drawing and editing more anime and other things too. Thanks again, and I hope you have a good day!☺️☺️☺️🥳🥳🥳🤩🤩🤩🤩😃😍😍😍😍😇😇😇😇😂😂😂😂😂😀😀😀😄😄😄😄😄😁😁😁😁

Great app!

I use to have this app on my phone and I loved it, however I did find it really hard to use. I recently just downloaded it on my I pad and it’s amazing. You can easily draw shapes, write/draw over an image, and even highlight words! At the moment I am enjoying using this app to draw mandalas, as there is a tool which copies your work into sections so they are so much easier to draw. I also used this to complete a worksheet I needed to complete for school. Not only was I able to write down my answers perfectly in the space given, but I was able to highlight the key terms needed to help me answer my questions. There are many tools, each one perfect for a different thing, including a pencil tool, a pen tool, multiple paintbrush tools (watercolour brush, solid painting brush etc) and many more which can all be changed in size, opacity and some even in texture. Perfect for any budding artist, casual drawer, or anyone working from home😊


Wonderful app although..

This app is honestly great, I make all of my art here and it is generally good. I have an easy time finding all of the brushes and even though the layout is a bit fiddly at first I got it and could use all of the features after about a week.
A few issues i have with this however are:
-When I use the time lapse feature it deletes the time lapse and doesn't save it when i tell it to. This has been an issue since I was accused of tracing and attempted to use it to disprove that.
-The app can’t handle large brushes without lagging
-Sometimes when using the predictive stroke it just completely stops working for a few seconds and sometimes even crashes the app. This also deletes some of the drawing I have done.
-When copying and pasting sometimes little random pixels come up, as well as blurring too. It would be fine if every time i had to use this I wanted a pink and green glitch effect but I don’t so this isn’t a very good aspect.

In all I can see through these things and tell that it is and amazing app but the time lapse problem is pretty bad and i don’t exactly want to delete the app and loose all of my drawings on it only to re download it to get it working again, so I hope some of these things can be fixed.
