5.0 out of 5 stars See it in action! October 28, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 8:51 Mins
I do own Photoshop CS6 and Painter 12--but this is the software I prefer to sketch in. Why? Because for me it provides the closest sensation to sketching with traditional pencil and paper.

The pencil tool creates lines that are almost identical to the lines you would get with a regular pencil. If you have a pressure sensitive laptop or monitor (Wacom Cintiq) then the experience is very similar to using a pencil on paper. Download the free trial version and try it out first to see what I mean.

I also really like the simplicity of the interface. The workspace is not filled up with menu bars and palettes. This is really important if you are working on a small monitor or a pressure sensitive laptop with a small screen. Having written that, each new version of Sketchbook Pro does add more and more available palettes and windows, but it is still very easy to keep most of the palettes closed and still have access to the various tools.

Here are some of the great NEW features in Sketchbook Pro 6. Check out the video to see these in action.

1. Additional Brush Libraries! My current favorite is the new "Synthetic Round Brush 2." These brushes are similar to the natural brush feel of many of the brushes in Painter 12.

2. Copic Color Palettes. Makes selecting colors and incorporating slight variations so easy!

3. Brush size can now be controlled with the right and left square bracket keys (the same keyboard shortcut as Photoshop).

4. Layer Blending Modes (normal, multiply, screen, and add)

5. New Color Puck (similar to Painter)

My usual workflow is to start out a sketch in Sketchbook Pro and then I bring it into Photoshop or Painter to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good option for drawing/painting October 25, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been doing digital art for six or seven years now and have used a handful of good programs. I currently have Photoshop, Corel Painter, Manga Studio and GIMP (which is open-source), and have also used Photoshop Elements. So, I think I can give a good, objective review of this software.

First off, this has a rather charming and unique interface that focuses a lot on radial menus, which is kind of a nice change of pace. This makes the interface and screen less cluttered, but everything you need is easy and quick to access. It has a good, solid set of basic tools: pencils, pens, airbrushes, etc. with the addition of a couple of brushes to add texture (charcoal, cammo) which are very useful. Now keep in mind, basic tools can get you all the way to (over very close to) photo-realism if you're skilled and patient enough. After all, look at what artists can do in real life with just a pencil, eraser, and paper. Just looking at some of the work people have done with this program will show you it's capable of some impressive results. But as is often the case, it isn't as much about the software as it is about the artist who uses it. You still have to have skill =)

I won't compare this to Photoshop or similar programs, because those are somewhat different programs. But you could compare this to Corel Painter (obviously this would be a scaled-down version) as well as to the Paint.Net program and Mypaint 1.0 (both free). And I have to mention the open-source software GIMP, here, as well. The price of Sketchbook Pro is certainly fair, but I must mention there are other drawing/painting programs out there which are free. GIMP, for example has fairly equivalent drawing/painting tools but also the photo-editing/filter capabilities that Sketchbook doesn't have. Mypaint and Paint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! October 24, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great program and quite an upgrade from an earlier version I tried a year ago. The part I like best is it has a very robust set of sketching tools. But additionally there are some new paint brushes and pen tools that are fantastic. I started sketching and was having so much fun adding value and color that before I knew it I had a fully rendered painting. It was pretty awesome!

I normally use Corel Painter 12 and there are some similarities between the two programs. Sketchbook Pro has the textures embedded into the brushes like Photoshop. Whereas painter has a paper and texture palette you can dial up or down. I feel fairly confident that I'll get used to this new mode. Photoshop users should have no problems making the transition. Another thing I found lacking was the layers functions. There are only four; add, overlay, multiply, and screen. Painter has about 22 or so and Photoshop has almost as many. There are some functions like darken and colorize that I miss. I love Photoshop's vivid light function. Oh well, maybe in future versions they will include more.

I also really love how logical all the menus and toolbars are. I'm currently using a Wacom Cintiq 12WX with a MacBook Pro so real estate is pretty scarse. But drawing seems pretty comfortable due to the very compact navigation tools and menus. A few tools acted a bit quirky for those of us who use other programs, such as the lasso tool. When you're tracing a shape the two ends are always connected by a straight line which for me will take some getting used to.
