Quick sketching using SketchBook Pro + Wacom Intuos 4

Its been a while since I posted anything on this blog. Thought I’ll break the calm with a quick post about my recent sketch.

I generally use Autodesk SketchBook Pro (SBP) on my Mac for the intial doodling. I then develop a fairly finished sketch before importing it into Photoshop for any post-processing. Luckily SBP saves the files in PSD format, making it easy to do the Photoshop import. The following sketch was entirely done in SBP:

Rain and Tears

This was done in about 30 mins as a quick sketch to demonstrate the use of SBP and a Wacom tablet to a close friend. He was quite impressed and immediately ordered a bunch of items, including a Wacom Bamboo stylus for the iPad. I guess marketing wouldn’t be a bad alternate career!

BTW, the sketch is called Rain and Tears. Rain and Tears - Tiles
