My partner unfortunately become ill last year, and was essentially housebound for a year. As part of her recuperation, she decided she wanted to get into the 'digital stuff' she often sees me playing about with. I set her up with my backup digital camera, Lightroom, and Sketchbook Pro.
Why Lightroom and Sketchbook instead of Photoshop and Painter? The latter are much more powerful, right?
Well, they also have a very large learning curve and are VERY expensive. Lightroom and Sketchbook pro are the ones I would recommend as an introduction to digital media creation and retouching because they are cheap to buy, intuitive to learn, and can certainly hold their own with the more expensive software if you ever want to go pro. In fact, many of my associates in paid work (including an ex Disney animator) prefer to use Sketchbook Pro over Painter/Photoshop because Sketchbook doesn't get in the way of what you want to do when you just want to lay stuff down quickly (or simply to learn digital sketching/painting from scratch, or just have fun).
I'd also strongly recommend getting a cheap PC pen tablet: Wacom Bamboo or something similar.
Oh, and you might want to have a look on Youtube before you commit to your purchase, as theres lots of videos showcasing what you can do with Sketchbook (and for that matter, with Lightroom).
The brushes are very natural in use and easily editable.
It's great for both sketching and inking (I'm working on my own Comic book art) and also for colouring.
Definitely feels like it was created for the artists. More about getting ideas down than playing with effects.
Amazing value for money. I know I'm going to be spending many hours with it. Works well in conjunction with a WACOM tablet.
1. New paintbrushes with actual bristle engines that make for more realistic looking strokes. There's quite a variety, too. A HUGE improvement over the last version where the paintbrush was basically just a blob of smooth, opaque colour filling.
2. More ways of customising brushes.
3. A new set of tools that work quite well.
4. Even better interface (Sketchbook Pro has always had an exceptionally good one).
5. More options to finally create different effects (it's still a joke compared to Photoshop, but we're not comparing it to PS because it's designed for a different purpose- nevertheless, there are some creative new ways to make paintings). For one thing, they've got brush blenders, which is something I sorely missed in the previous version.
1. New Colour Wheel.... What IS this?! I absolutely hate the new colour ring that they've put. It's no longer a nice, easy to read colour ring with a value triangle inside it. It's just a circle with increased saturation on the outer perimeter, and white at the centre, and a seperate bar/ scale to adjust the darkness. It's horrible.Read more ›
Sketchbook Pro 2011 had just been released days later after getting this recommendation. I got it immediately and it was everything that was described to me.
Most of what I used Photoshop for, I now had a specialized drawing and illustration app that had more than 20 different drawing styles, multiple layers, moveable headers, rulers of all kinds.. all this for $75.
What this meant to me is that if I wanted to sketch... I'd have the tools to do it. If I wanted to paint or "spray paint" a caricature, I have the tools to do it. If I wanted to work on an engineering or an architectural draft-- with this software alone-- I'd have the tools to do it. And, I didn't have to waste time opening up several different softwares that were better at somethings than others.
About 6 months later, Sketchbook Book Pro came out with a free update which included the Copic Colors--an underground style of markers that was popular with manga artists. I had no idea what "Copic Colors" were and certainly didn't know how these young artists are using it, but after a quick Google search, this digital version of Copic Colors watercolor markers is a great thing to have.
Some other artist made the legitimate claim that SBP11 still didn't have a smudge tool. True.
Now that Sketchbook Pro "6" has a smudge tool, new and expanded layout headers in addition to literally more than 2 dozens drawing/ painting/ sketching styles, it becomes very difficult to not to go to SBP when you have some very important work to do.
Talking about price for a moment. Sketchbook Pro has actually DROPPED in price.Read more ›
