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!

Needs import from iCloud, Sharing Sheet & Dropbox

Yeah - I said it!

I just found this after trying so many apps. I thought we could draw a heart, feather, rain drop and create a brush head/stamp.
Edit: Found it! It's in brush mode only, not pen mode. In brush mode, click the Plus at upper right corner. My heart became a brush style! Very happy!
Let us backup custom brushes to iCloud.

We can't import PNGs and PSDs from iCloud Drive. All my work and references are in iCloud Drive, not Photo Roll. Need this for Import and layers Load Image.

I want an option to save WIPs in iCloud Drive like Sketchbook.

Woud love it if you added 4 more spaces to dock tools. There is room even on 9.7 iPad in portrait mode.

Description says "floating reference image". How?
Found it in FAQ. You have to zoom out, then press a picture frame icon.
Need to import refs from iCloud Drive and Files app.

Add these things, and Sketch Club will be better than Autodesk Sketchbook.

These are minor:
Needs offline FAQ.
Could use a graph grid and perspective grid option.
Community page needs easy button to get to help forums.
When I search for brushes and pick one, the app forgets my keyword search and I have to start over. Pain if I was on page 2 or 3 of Search.
Filters/FX that turn a photo/colored pic into empty sketch lines, coloring book style. There are other apps that do this, but it would be handy to have it all in one.

Please look into these matters. Thank you.

Amazing

Obilio

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!!
