Autodesk SketchBook8.7

06 November 2019

Drawing with pro-grade tools and brushes (was SketchBook Express).

Overview

At Autodesk SketchBook, we believe creativity starts with an idea. From quick conceptual sketches to fully finished artwork, sketching is at the heart of the creative process. You never know when a great idea will strike, so access to fast and powerful creative sketching tools is an invaluable part of any creative process.

For this reason, we are excited to announce that the fully featured version of SketchBook is now Free for everyone!

What's new in Autodesk SketchBook

Version 8.7:
  • Removed the splash screen that appeared upon startup, so there is no longer a need or even an option for logging in.

Note: If you are not a SketchBook Pro (enterprise) user and created an Autodesk Account, you may want to delete it. See the article Delete Your Autodesk Account for instructions for how to do this.

A great app at a great price. It takes a while to learn but the effort is worth it. I also like that's it's now on the App store. Unlike some folk I really enjoy Apple's App store. It makes purchasing and updating apps so much easier and convenient.

Would love to try SketchBook, but as a Mac pro since OS 6 and video professional for 5 years, I will not trust app management to "the cloud" on my workstations. Reliability is too important to my work. Have Wacom tablet & other similar apps, I'll do fine without any App store product thank you very much!

One of the best free applications I've ever seen. A bit complicated at the beginning, but later I found everything I was looking for.

There is an increasing number of Applications for Mac OSX available only via the AppStore. Sadly this is another free Software that nobody can download unless you bow and pray to the Apple-god. I think, it's a very bad idea to force the users through this policy to search and download from filesharingsites. :-(

Besides the unbeatable price, this is a great little app for quick sketches or full blown works of art. One can design their own color palette since it uses the Apple Color Picker. Works fine with an old Wacom as well as my Cintiq. Most importantly it is Photoshop friendly. It's lightweight, great for quick launching and sketching without the massive overhead of Photoshop. If you have Photoshop or Painter this is a nice tool for thumbnails and sketches on the run. If you don't have a high-powered Paint/Drawing app, this is a great intro. And it's free.

This is now the third or fourth app I've seen that I WOULD download and try, but am shut out by the fact that the app store is Intel-only. for the time being I must use a (still very capable) G5 machine. I'm sure I'm not the only user who is growing frustrated with MacUpdate (and Apple) since this new development.
