I’m Loving it. My Art drive is back 30+ years later..

Being a car nut since playing with HotWheels as a kid, My love for cars grew to model cars and eventually Art. After taking Art in JR High I spent hours sketching various cars which I loved but knew I could probably never obtain in real life. Years later headed to work with my prized Automotive Artwork to share with some Co-workers, a freak thunderstorm swept through my car and sucked all of my work out through the passenger window at 65mph and scattered it into a flooding river along the Highway. Lost forever I was immediately sickened knowing I had just watched every memory and piece of art I had created since grade school to that point in time blow right out of the window. This was way before Smart Phones, Apps and electronic storage. Fast forward to this year 2018 using my iPad Pro for work I discovered Adobe Sketch for field drawings and documentation of construction projects. Bored one night I decided to try to recapture my passion for art drawing a vintage VW Bus for a friend who heads up a world wide social media site using Adobe Sketch. After spending over 8 hours doing my first ever Full Color Rendering I posted it on the site. I immediately watched as the likes began to poor in. I’m now back in the world of art which I once Loved thanks to this Amazing tool called Adobe Sketch.. Many sincere thanks to the creators of this Amazing App....

I wish the both of the apps were combined having to go to separate apps all the time to draw different things is really annoying I wish there was a pencil in both of them I wish that the pens were in both of them really adobe I really wish you would just combine both of the apps by now i’m an artist I absolutely love your program it’s free it’s good I like it I just wish
That you were combined both and also no smudge stick tool really... it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors I can’t have a good fade I know that your app is mostly meant for making logos but I really really wish you would combine both of the apps and add a smudge stick it’s really annoying that I can’t combine the colors or make the colors fade out
So please for the love of God add a smudge stick but I genuinely love the watercolor brushes
And please please just combined and the stupid apps
If you read this developers thank you I know it’s really long but I genuinely want your app to be improved on. me and my mother both use this app and I love it it has a good system there’s layers all kinds of things I genuinely love it. it’s just I wish that you would do things that other things also do other free programs that are more crappy than you. you like one of the best free programs I’ve ever found please continue what you’re doing but please make some improvements and for the love of goodness add a Smudge stick! thank you for reading!

Blown away by the watercolor in this app

Kudos to whoever programmed the watercolor part of this app! This is my favorite painting app by far, and I’ve tried several including the most popular and paid art apps. What keeps me coming back (addicted!) to Adobe Sketch is the beautiful subtlety of how the paint interacts with the surface. Other apps can achieve fairly realistic edges and blending, but with my brush stylus and this app, I feel like I’m painting with watercolor, the way real watercolor works. I forget that I’m working in digital format because the tools seem to work the same way. The paper is “wet” at first and the paint interacts with it, spreads and dries down. Washes interact with each other, and the flow setting is so intuitive, works the same as deciding water to pigment ratio. This app is so realistic I even found myself instinctively lifting paint. Not erasing, but lifting with water just as I would in real life. Love the rest of the app too but I’m especially appreciative of the obvious care that went into the watercolor functions. Thanks!

One wish: it would round out the experience if I could have a palette of preselected colors set out instead of choosing anew each time I change colors, but I get by with the color picker. It’s just a little slower than having key colors already “mixed” and at the ready while I paint.
