When I started illustrating my book “Looking for a Dinosaur” I originally planned on using Sketchbook Pro on the iPad. When I couldn’t get the illustrations to look right on the iPad (no fault of the app), I decided to try Sketchbook Pro 5 on my Mac. Unfortunately, that was lacking several tools I really needed (number one being a blending brush), so I moved on to Painter 12. I am happy to say that Autodesk has recently released Sketchbook Pro 6 for the Mac with many improvements including a smudge brush. Is it good enough for me to use over Painter for my next project?
