Autodesk SketchBook is the award-winning drawing app from the leader in computer-aided design. It's 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 they'll 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 you're drawing freehand, it will add just the right amount of smoothing to curved lines. Don't 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 you're 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 device's 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: There's nothing worse than losing your work, and there's 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. A SketchBook subscription is a simple way to ensure you get the best SketchBook experience on all your devices. As a subscriber, you get every new feature, every update, every tool, and the ability to use SketchBook on any device.

    By Mr Jiffy-Sidney
    In my opinion it is much better than Procreate.
  • It needs some updates.

    Hi I love sketchbook app on my iPad. I used it for colouring and I have an issue whit the colours , I can’t save them as a palette and I like the copic colours it’s more easy than the wheel colour but I thing it needs an update. add the colours in name ( red, yellow etc) order and scale into higher to lower colours, at the moment is a bit weird . Also is it possible to custom the background where the folder are showing , black is ok but I prefer white or a more nicer background for the eyes. I rate it a 3/5 star because of this, apart from that is better to use than procreate. If you can make this update I will rate a 5/5 star app.
  • Great App

    Really great functionality and works perfect even on the phone. Does everything you’d want to and is a great Sketchbook on the go or when you forget one. Perfect. Using mainly for colour practice because the great palettes and modes. For even better functions maybe: Saveable Palettes, so you can adjust them and save them alongside the preset. Then perhaps a bank of palettes where you can see the mixes others have done. I’d really like a notebook style thing alongside the art so it’s a real sketchbook, not sure he “text” function really fixes that maybe an option to do a “Note” not sure.
  • Just wow

    Amazing I’m defiantly getting it such good ratings and can it really scan photos from real life cuz ima be scanning all mine so I can work on them at any time without bringing all my pens and pencils round with me 😂😂😂
  • Amazing! Does everything I needed and more

    100% recommend, any artist from beginner to experience can have fun and create anything using this app. I know for a fact that this is the best art and photo editing app on the Apple Store on iPad, wish the windows 10 version wasn't subscription based, and is far ahead of any other sketch and art apps. This is a must have seriously!

    By paaszczak
    Fantastic for sketching and painting. Much better than on Windows.
  • Sketchbook Pro is still number one!

    By Roop737
    Love this app! Everyone seems to rave about Procreate but this is so much nicer to use. The only thing I wish the developer would do is add the Perspective tool available in the desktop version. Then it would be truly perfect!
