I usually save either to my image roll (so it get automagically onto all my devices), or to dropbox. To dropbox makes it pretty much the same as saving a file on a computer as it ends up in my computer folder via dropbox.

love your sketches - quick, loose, effective, confident... just how it should be, really nice!

You ended up getting the 2017 iPad, right? Do you feel the 120hz when sketching? Is it nice or not really noticable compared to a standard 60hz panel?

Thanks. Still working on the sketching.... not always as loose and fast as the outcome may look ;)

I got the latest. Hard to comment on the refresh since I didn't do a direct comparison and came from a Intuos. I have no complaints about hardware though!

I use the first gen ipad pro, with Sketchbook, mostly (Procreate occasionally). As far as getting files out, I love using Slack. Sketchbook has a really nice share integration with Slack, and in seconds, I've shared the sketches with everyone on the team. Pretty nice.

The no eclipse guides and rulers thing is a total miss. Have to stay with sketchbook for that.

You can get straight lines though if you draw your line and then hold the pencil still on the end point. A straight line will snap.



i think I'm going to switch back to sketchbook, not only to support our friend Blaster, but also because the predictive stroke feature:



glad i came across this thread #suchinformative, unaware i was using the older version of sketchbook that was discontinued...predictive stroke is on point! -#punlife!!-

I kinda feel like this predictive stroke just makes it easier for the layman and harder for the talented artist.. The way things are progressing I worry that in future people with no talent or ability will be able to come up with great sketches because of software advancements. Anyone else worry about this?

No, tools are just tools. You can make a perfect note in autotune... someone who is terrible is still terrible. Making a great sketch of a bad design is still a bad sketch. Not understand form, materials, perspective, texture, manufacturing techniques, use cases, brand positioning... will result in bad designs. So, still not worried.

maybe, #itbelikethatsometimes...if software advancements make great sketches easier hopefully that just means more great sketches which sounds like a good thing to me? sketches are just ways to communicate/translate/transmit ideas, so the bar just gets raised...

I'll have to try transferring it using Dropbox. My iPad is the only iOS device I have now, so it will have to be a cross platform method (should have mentioned that first).

Thanks

I tried to use the predictive stroke on the desktop version of sketchbook and found it pretty useless to be honest.
Looks cool in promo videos, but doesn't offer much value.
If you are sketching loosely by hand you usually want that "handsketched" look. Perfectly straight lines and ellipses totally destroy that.
If you want to render something out very precisely predictive stroke just isn't accurate enough and changes your original lines quite a lot. It is wicked hard to place that perfect line and ellipse in the EXACT location you want and you end up with a lot of undo and then trying it again. In the end I found the ellipse ruler just the more controlled, precise and ultimately faster option.
I would be happy to hear of someone who found it useful. Maybe he or she can share their use of predictive stroke here and it turns out I was just doing it wrong!

Or they could just relaunch Sketchbook Designer or add those features into the main program so we can move elipses around and alter them after drawing them.
