Replaced my paper

I love to doodle and draw as I find it relaxing. It was always a pain to carry around a tablet and pencils and markers etc.. I'm still in the development of my skills since I cannot dedicate the time that I want to the arts (work and study, responsibilities. Am I right?) Anyhow, I love being able to work in layers to refine what I am working on. There is the ability to import pictures/images which I have not done but given the Adobe's capabilities, I am sure this is quite functional. The default brushes that are available are perfect to hit the ground running and if you have a collection already, there is an import option to bring them in. I have tried Draw on my Note 4 which was really nice but now that I have my iPad Pro and Pencil, I have not looked back on this download.

Almost great, ultimately frustrating

Don't get me wrong, this app has some killer features - importing Photoshop brushes is the one that keeps me coming back. But as an avid user of the brilliant Procreate app, I keep walking away again in frustration. There are so many things about this app that slow me down and keep me from creating finished artwork:
- tiny file size limits. I can't create a canvas larger than 8" x 10" at 300dpi.
- 2+ taps to do anything. Most of the things I want to do frequently, like change colors or brush sizes, are buried away in the UI, requiring extra taps to expose them.
- no lasso selection tool. Really? These are the people who made Photoshop?
- no masking, aside from alpha locking an individual layer. See above.
- Stuck in the Adobe CC ecosystem. Want to export artwork to Dropbox, Google Drive, or one of the other cloud services you already rely on? Too bad. Get ready to pay to upgrade your CC storage for any serious amount of artwork. My PS brush collection alone filled up most of my free 2 gigs in no time.
- no free rotation of canvas. You have to turn your iPad (and the UI) around.

ALL of these things (and more) are better in Procreate. Their brush engine is not quite as robust, but still very strong, and it has most of the Photoshop painting and layer features that you would want from the desktop version.

Keep trying, Adobe. I want to love this app!

Useful and Enjoyable

Before Adobe Sketch, I had used apps like Drawing Pad and Sketchbook. So far, I have found Adobe Sketch both simpler and more powerful than either of these. If there's a noticeable problem, it's the nominal quantity of textured brushes available in the app. Overall though, it's quite good. Five stars.
