From a doodle to a masterpiece on the iPad

AMONG the first new paid applications that Malaysians can download for the Apple iPad — when it finally arrives here, that is — is the Autodesk SketchBook Pro.

The app is a professional-grade paint and drawing application designed exclusively for the device.

It uses the same paint engine as its desktop and mobile counterparts and delivers a complete set of sketching and painting tools through a streamlined and intuitive user interface, the company said.

Geared for both occasional doodlers and professional illustrators, SketchBook Pro combines high-quality digital pencils, pens, markers and airbrushes with a multitouch gesture-based user interface to transform the iPad into the ultimate digital sketchbook, the company added.

Other key features include a full-screen 1,024 x 768 workspace with support for any device orientation.

Additionally users have a choice of 75 brushes with customisable settings, including synthetic pressure sensitivity, free sketching as well as the ability to create straight lines, ellipses and rectangles.

SketchBook Pro also comes with a built-in live news page to alert artists on upcoming events as well as highlight featured artists and their SketchBook creations. It retails for US$7.99 (RM25.50) and is available exclusively through the App Store. There are also iPhone and iPod touch versions of the app.
