If you're using membership or a mobile version of Autodesk SketchBook it's time to update your app! We've got some goodies, changes, bug fixes, and upgrades in there for you.
Here's an overview of what's new:
Back in October, we introduced membership with three levels. Seeing how it worked in our users hands these last six months we've decided to merge the Starter and Essentials memberships together. Going forward, we'll only have two levels of membership.
What does this mean for you? If you were Starter, you'll find you now have new brushes, layer options, and tools. If you were already Essentials or Pro you'll stay exactly the same.
Not a SketchBook member yet? With this new release you can try before you buy for 15 days. Download the desktop version of SketchBook to start your trial membership.
What does it get you? Access the Pro tools across all your devices- from desktop, tablet, to mobile. Take your sketches on the go- don't stop drawing just because you're away from your desktop.
During your trial we've got all sorts of tutorials and goodies to teach you how to use the special features like layers, custom brushes, advanced selection, perspective guides and Flipbook.
Get started today - download the Desktop version to activate your trial membership.
Glow brush: This spiffy little brush makes your chrome glimmer and your fire smolder. It's kinda like having the 'Glow' blending mode in brush form. Use it sparingly, or go nuts and make your artwork sparkle.
Inking Brush: This brush has a special attribute applied to the stroke that controls opacity evenly. You'll see your opacity doesn't overlap on contiguous stokes. What does that mean for your art? Well, check it out below compared to a normal SketchBook brush and see for yourself.
Got a bluetooth pen, like the Adonit Jot, Pencil by FiftyThree, or Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus?
Update your app for better performance across the board with enhanced tracking, palm rejection, and under the hood tweaks to improve your experience. There's even a whole bevy of bug fixes that hopefully you won't notice- cause everything should work super smooth.
We hope you enjoy these improvments- happy drawing! Check out this vieo to learn how to activate your trial:
Perpetual users - (non-membership) we haven't forgotten you! Your update is coming soon. Stay tuned!
