Extra brushes for SketchBook Pro 2011?

Just installed SketchBook Pro 2011 on my PC and was surprised to see how few brushes you get… particularly considering how many you get with the iPad version (ver 2.0 is most excellent, BTW). Plus there’s a ton more that you can download for free from the Autodesk SketchBook Store accessible through the iPad version, but I haven’t found the same for the full version for the PC, which is much more expensive.

Anybody out there find a source for SBP brushes?


Autodesk made a pack of 100 brushes for SBP for MAC and PC, they used to be on the AREA website for Autodesk, But the link broke quite a while ago. I’ve not found them anywhere else, so if someone has them please share?

After a bit more searching, I found the Autodesk SketchBook Pro group on FaceBook:

and I got some really good information:

(1) There’s already a service pack release for 2011 (to 5.1) and it includes 3 additional brush sets. The update can be downloaded from here:

(2) Dave Bentley, an instructor the College for Creative Studies created 4 additional brush sets (a total of 72 brushes) that can be directly imported into SketchBook Pro 2011 (version 5.0 and above) on Mac & Windows. You can get those here:


So I think I’m all set. Hope this helps some other folks as well.



Thanks for the update news - some good changes besides the brushes.

I just started a blogger account to share some Sketchbook Pro resources. I just posted a new brush set named ‘clouds’ there.


they can also be found on my deviant art page:

Time permitting I’ll be adding more custom brushes.

I hope it’s useful for someone…
