Sketchbook Express app
The introduction of the Apple Mac app store earlier this year has opened up a wealth of ossam software to Mac owners in the form of apps and the Sketch Book Express Mac app is no exception. Bringing your sketchpad to the app and funking it up with brilliant design features, Sketch Book Express is a great free app download.
However, the reality is that it only really comes to life when it is combined with a sketch mat and pen, so that you can actually sketch straight onto the screen. Without one it makes drawing anything with your finger or mouse pretty tough, as the pic I knocked up on Sketch Book Express with my finger and track-pad shows.
With the addition of the sketch mat and pen though, you unlock a whole new realm of creativity, giving you the opportunity to design some incredibly complex drawings with much more freedom than with paper based sketch skills, because of the ability to define layers, undo mistakes and move portions of the image around with ease.
The Sketch Book Express app is free right now at the Mac app store, but it also has a more professional older brother in Sketch Book Pro, but at £44.99 you might want to try out your skills on the express version before you turn pro. Although you’ve only got to take a look at the video of the Iron Man sketch video to see what you can achieve.
