Draw anything with a grid 

The Grid method is the easiest way for artists to reproduce, scale up or scale down a reference image you want to transfer to a canvas. 
With a grid you can also adjust a reference image to a different format with different proportions.
Using a drawing grid anytime when you sketch or paint something that requires accuracy, for example still life or a portrait, will sharpen your art skills. 

Select any area of your image as your composition 

Switch between different types of grids: squares, proportional or triangular 

Choose your optimal grid size, colour and thickness 

Convert your image to a sketch to highlight where the lines are

What’s New

Version 1.13

In addition to the traditional grids, Sketch Grid now has a triangular grid which is very useful for portraits. It is also the perfect grid to use if you are working on detailed pictures and need to be more accurate. This method is widely used by traditional French artists.

Excellent; grid automatically splits the canvas vertically and horizontally

This is the perfect grid system for artists. Defining the area over which the grid will be imposed is easily done by a drag button. Pinching the grid increases the number of demarcations. Except for the 3x3 grid, the app applies a centerline grid vertically and horizontally. It's great, but see below.

Update: the shape of the picture to grid can be custom sized to any proportion of width to height. However, there is no indication of what the ratio of width to height is in the grid window that is being defined, making it a little difficult to match the cropped picture in the device with the canvas you are using. It would be great if there is a 1.0 number shown on, say, the height axis, and the app shows what the ratio on the width (e.g., 1.3,) and this changes as the grid window is adjusted. Once the shapes of the grid window and the canvas are matched, the grids not being perfectly square would be less of an issue.

Interface is not intuitive

Cropping tool is too zoomed in, won’t work for my picture. Definitely not worth paying for, will be getting my money back for this terrible app.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. The cropping tool should work with all pictures. If you would like us to try and help you, please send an email to the support address in the app or via the contact form on the web site.

Trick to using this that some don't know

I've noticed that some people reviewing grid drawing apps don't realize that an iPad or iPhone can take a screenshot of the current screen... with your grid over your image! Then you just print it out and you're good to go. This is very much worth the money.
