Autodesk SketchBook is the award-winning drawing app from the leader in computer-aided design. Its made for creative professionals, aspiring artists, and anyone who likes to capture their ideas in digital form. Known for its natural drawing experience and clean user interface that gets out of your way, SketchBook has everything you need to create beautiful digital art. The brush engine has 170 default brushes you can customize, so theyll always perform exactly as you expect. Ink feels fluid and smooth, synthetic brushes blend colors in a natural way, and texture brushes mimic natural media.

The SketchBook drawing and rendering engine was designed to use the full computing power of every iOS device (especially the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil). Rapid UI mode gets a thumbs up from our users because it lets your free hand pull up interface elements when needed for the largest possible workspace on your iPad.

The list of tools in SketchBook is vast, but a few standouts that will help make you a better artist include:
• Radial Symmetry: Product designers and mandala makers alike love the ability to draw once and replicate their lines up to 16 times using Radial Symmetry.
• Predictive Stroke: Draw a line and our Predictive Stroke assertive technology will make your line straight. Draw a basic shape and it will make your circles, rectangles, and triangles more precise. If youre drawing freehand, it will add just the right amount of smoothing to curved lines. Dont need help? Turn it down or turn it off.
• Ruler and Ellipse: Perspective is everything in drawing and our Ruler and Ellipse tool will help ensure youre realizing the correct positioning, size, rotation, and aspect ratio.
• Full Layer Support: SketchBook opens and exports Photoshop documents (PSD files) natively, preserving layer names and blending modes.
• Scan Sketch: With a quick snap of your devices camera, SketchBook can transform your paper-based line drawings into digital form. Great for getting new life out of old drawings or for making the transition to an all-digital workflow.
• Autosave and infinite Undo: Theres nothing worse than losing your work, and theres nothing better than being able to step back in your workflow a few dozen times to give it another go. SketchBook saves both your work and your patience.

Pros and cons of Autodesk SketchBook app for iPhone and iPad

Autodesk SketchBook app good for

I really like this App but I wish I could adjust the the canvas height Moreno suit the comic Im making
I love it so much! Its the best it works so well! It doesnt crash, its perfect!!!!!
This is the best app for drawing. Ive tried so many and just trust me you dont want to bother. This one is honest and real it does what it says and a lot more. It also has continuously improved over the years. You can trust this app and this company.
I wish They updated with Advanced Smoother Tool while we are sketching (P.S Its Hard To Sketch on iPod 5 Generation)
I love using this app to draw! Ive been using it for about 2 years now, and I can still say I love it. Although there is a glitch in which when I close the app, it deletes a layer off my drawings. Its getting super weird and annoying.
this is my favorite app for drawing and painting. I love the interface and the double puck for changing brush size/opacity and color dynamics is stellar. I also love the selection tools and layer blending modes. At some point I hope we can make our own brushes like on the desktop version. But till then I am a very happy camper.

Some bad moments

Update crashes. This has been crashing since the last update how long ago? Cant even open it...Im wondering if they will take note and FIX THIS APP.... Cant open, cant open, cant open....crashes, crashes ....jeez...youd think someone would notice?
I think these days with all the App options around Im finding that if I use the pencil tool in a non vector based environment and it doesnt feel real or even close to real I immediately know it just wont work for me. The pencil tool is the furthest from feeling natural as possible. It kind of behaves like an air brush trying to mimic graphite. Terrible... So Ill be sticking with Procreate for drawing even though as far as I got was a few pens down from the pencil.
I used to really rely on it because I KNOW its a good app but... IT KEEPS ON CRASHING!!!! PLS FIX!!! ( ;´Д`)
When ever I draw something, it would freeze then crash and when I start it up again my drawing gets glitch and it gets ruined. Please fix this. I dont want anything I worked hard on ruined
it is impossible to get the pro version for free, that is, via a subscription! fix!
