Learn professional techniques, sketch your own ideas, and collect your digital art! Practice advance techniques by drawing alongside tutorials from Matt Busch. Or sketch on your own with the option to import your own photo reference.
Sketchbooks have always been a way to collect your creative ideas and plan your visual masterpieces. Now with the limitless possibilities of Interactive Sketchbook, you'll never buy another paper sketchbook again!
Newly optimized for the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and Adonit Pixel stylus for the highest quality digital drawing experience.
THE RIGHT TOOLS
Three custom layers allow you to efficiently switch between the types of tools that are most useful. Draw loosely and plan your work in the "Sketch Layer". Enjoy precise control of line and value in the "Detail Layer" to make highlights and intricate details shine. Enjoy a unique "Tone Layer" that makes smooth shading easy and fun! Each layer's visibility can be toggled on and off.
SIDE BY SIDE
Whether using your own photo or a tutorial, split view allows you to use reference in a unique way, side by side. Pinch to zoom in on detail and both the drawing and reference stay perfectly in sync! Awesome for artists who want to draw from reference without being forced to trace.
INTUITIVE FULL-PAGE MODE
But when you do want to trace. . . swipe the binder over to utilize the full page where you can use your reference as a guide to get proportions picture perfect. Or enjoy full-screen mode with the reference layer toggled off to focus on detail, and maximize the iPad’s work surface.
With Interactive Sketchbook, you’ll never run out of pages. And with an undo and redo function you can explore being more creative without ruining your drawing or wasting paper. Like a tangible paper sketchbook Interactive Sketchbook is portable and always ready when inspiration strikes.
