Best Windows 8 Apps
10 November 2015
I, absolutely, LOVE this app! Even though I have and use the more expensive programs like Magna Studio and PhotoShop, this one has the essentials to turn my Surface Pro into a portable sketchbook. It's super simple. You get a graphite pencil, coloring pencil, blender and eraser and different colored pages to choose from.
What makes me use it instead of the other programs aside from the simplicity? The pencil texture is spot on! It's perfect, looks and feels like a real pencil, something you can only get by making your own custom brush in other programs. And still, they don't look as real as this one.
So I use this for sketching on a whim, and if I want to color or enhance it I just import it and open it with another program.
Give it a try! It's free! And the extra options are only $2 and they ARE worth it.

I really appreciate this fascinating app! It's easy to use and looks so realistic! But I hope it can be accessed in China. It cannot be found until I set my location to be United States. But I met problems purchasing the full edition in foreign countries.

higher pixilation for more detail would be my only ask, with a zoom to 200%

I'm a sketch artist and this is a almost perfect tool. Graphite has a clean and logical interface. The pencils are fluid and natural.
What is missing is the ability to have even basic layers. Graphic software has had layer capabilities since the 1990's and we have become accustomed to producing art using these tools. I understand that the programmers probably wanted a more real world experience but without layers this is only a toy sketchbook and not a fully realized sketching tool.

Love the blending feature! I was not able to find it in other applications. I find myself using it a lot and am happy with the results. Overall I feel this is a clean, simple to use application for sketching.
Feature suggestion: It would be awesome if I had the ability to upload my own background.

I found this application strips away all of the unessesary features and offer a great clean way to do realistic graphite art on my surface. Version 1.. can't wait to see what's coming. Also.. hands down.. the best smudge/blend tool on the market. For those of us who have been missing this feature with other sketch applications.

I love this app, and defiantly recommend it for artists, drawing, doodling and even keeping my ten year old busy. It lends not only fun, but functions as a helpful tool for serious ideas as well. I used it to sketch a logo idea, using only my finger. Amazed me!
I will purchase a drawing pen to doodle with, but fingering: can't beat that.
There is a nice toolbox, and drawing feels and looks like real pencils preform. I love the level of undo, and the in-app gallery is great for saving my work. It does it automatically.
Please add color pencils.
