SketchBook Ink Top iPad App of the Week: Editor’s Choice
Released by Autodesk last week, SketchBook Ink has quickly become the top drawing iPad app of the week. It is featured in Editor’s Choice section on iTunes. The new drawing application has intuitive interface so it can suite both professional artists and beginners who like to created pen & ink masterpieces on the screen of their tablet computer.
The program is designed for iPad 2 and iPad 3. It let’s you share your illustrations and sketches directly from the iDevice.
Simple Sketching Tool
The program is intended as an inking application. It’s main plus is high output resolution. If you used Zen Brush or similar drawing apps on iPad, you can get an idea of what Autodesk has created for iOS users this time. You see a full screen canvas (one tap makes tools disappear and let’s users enjoy the big canvas), erasers, pens and a color palette as you start drawing.
Sadly, there are no layers in this program. This means that if you import a photograph to use it as your background, you will quickly fill it with your drawing. Another sad feature is failure to control ink opacity.
I guess artists who are familiar with digital painting can still create masterpieces using this app. As for the beginners, I am afraid they have to be very patient with their drawing on iPad.
