    Art Rage vs Sketchbook Pro

    An interesting read although he is comparing AR 2.5 to Sketchbook Pro 2010...

    Bottom line, the author likes both, using Sketchbook for sketching and concepts, then polishing the work in AR...

    For the record - I really like both too -
    but now it's AR3 Pro and Skb 2010/2011.

    They are both lovely to use and have different things to offer - I don't see it as one versus the other - but one in harmony with the other.

    Cheese is better, than sausages.
    - And than better?
    - Than sausages..

    The author checked AR 2.5, besides before it never used. Any tool demands accustoming,IMHO. Personally at me, SB has not gone.

    Only using the trial version of Sketchbook and not using it that much, there are few tools in Sketchbook I'd love to have in AR...

    Symmetry tool being one & the other the blur & smudge tools... As much as I try AR's palette knife I can not duplicate the blending tools in Painter IX.5 ie: just add water ... (and it is perhaps the only tool from Painter I really miss in AR)...

    I also think the way you access Sketchbook's ruler is a lot more intuitive then AR...

    That said AR is by far my favorite 2D app... I also use Paint Shop Pro X3 & X4 as I find AR's transformation tools just do not cut it... And of course the vector tools in Inkscape...

    In a reality, even in ArtRage 2.5 has more tools, than SB 2010.
    In SB 2010 very good function of an ellipse - yes.
    SketchBook - a sediment
    I know people who choose Illustrator: turbomilk.ru
    I - simply draw. As I can
    ps.That you have listed - cheaper analogues of Adobe Photoshop.
    To be better more close to the original, I consider
    pps. These people even have made impossible - import of brushes and plug-ins from Photoshop! -Remaining thus the unique program.

    Good luck to you in all!

    - If you wish to have the present magic brush - that can be it will for you -- ZBrush?

    AR's pencil is every bit as versatile as sketchbooks.

    Hi kenmo,
    I own both,and have used Sketchbook Pro,but not for ages.I just open AR3 and get on with it.
    I did like the sketchy feel of Sketchbook Pro for drawing.I find now I do less line work for storming up ideas,so I love using AR3 crayons,but AR3 pencil tool is fine.I like how you can switch to precise if needed.I can't remember I may have posted this e.g before,sorry about the repeat.
