Fran500 Sketch Club keeps getting better and more fun!

Cooper me

I use sketch club daily. After five years now,I honestly have never had a negative experience. My art has improved tremendously, classes, tutorials, tips and help from other artists, and most importantly, encouragement and support! Out of curiosity, I've tried other similar apps, to see if I was missing out on something cool. Procreate is the only one out of all I tried that I kept. I rarely use it though and Sketch Club has the community that keeps me hooked! I d have paid much more for this app, I did for some of the others, only to find them a waste of money.i encourage anyone to try Sketch Club no matter what skill level they are.
PS.....the creator of this wonderful app, Black Pawn, is constantly there listening to members and quickly fixing any slight bug that may occur as in any app! i just can't recommend this app enough!!
The current updates are awesome! The shortcut bar is fabulous, I'm not tech savvy by any means, but once I learned how to use it (with the help of other community members) I couldn't live without it!!!!
I love this app and I love the community. But if you're not into community apps, you can simply turn it off in your settings.
Five stars and more😊
PS for those giving five stars "but" you will find answers and solutions simply by posting your question on the community forum within the community part of the app. There is always someone with a simple solution!!!!!

Amazing tool for both Sketching and Painting

Mengu Gungor

Sketch Club is an amazing tool for both digital sketching and painting. I've been using it for about 3 years, last year of it with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I use it regularly for life drawing (figure and portrait), and I've used it in diverse areas, from concept art, to photo manipulations, to t-shirt designs.

The tools and customization options are top notch. I'm able to adjust pressure sensitivity for my custom brushes just the way I like them, something I haven't been able to do quite as well in other apps. The whole interface is easy to use and efficient (efficiency was one of my big requirements for using it in 2-3 hour life drawing sessions). Not only are the existing tools great, but they get better with each update. Publisher of the app has an ear to the community, and provides solid and relevant updates, and provides great support.

If you're a digital artist without Sketch Club, you are missing out!



This app is perfect for a beginner in digital art, as there are many people willing to help in the community, plus lessons and tutorials to help you learn. I would also recommend it to those experienced in digital art, as it offers you the opportunity to use an entire library of custom brushes, record your drawing, etc. The best $2.99 you will ever spend.
I have heard concerns about the community being "cliquish". Not in my experience at all. I am a regular person, I try to be nice to new people, (we were all new once!) As long as you behave this way, you will be treated accordingly. It's a great place to grow. :)
After 3 years and many updates, friends and learning experiences later - everything I said above still applies. THE best art app on the market!!
