Basic selection of drawing and painting tools for both dabblers and serious hobbyists

SketchBook Mobile and Express are part of the Autodesk family of drawing apps. They offer a basic selection of sketching tools, including layers, all of which are packaged through a super intuitive interface.

Fill your blank canvas by selecting the tools from the toolbar above. You've got access to a color wheel (RGB HSV), text entry, geometric shapes, and a palette of 15 brushes. Navigating the page is simple - two fingers can slide the page around or zoom in/out. Mirroring tools let you create symmetric designs, and a central floating puck allows you to quickly adjust the width and transparency of your brush.

The major downside of this app compared to the more professional version is the limited number of brushes. For beginners, though, it's going to be plenty to start with.

It's recommended that you use a tablet and a stylus to get the most out of this kind of drawing app. That said, I created a pretty sweet fingerpainted dinosaur while testing SketchBook Express, so...

    Ok so I'm on the galaxy S5 and I am really digging this app, the only problem is there's no screen rotation, which wouldnt be bad, except that when I try to bring up the menu for layers it cuts half of the options box off making the layers feature entirely un usable. I really want to give you give stars but where this crucial point is missing I can't do it honestly. Please fix this so I can fully

    Don't even waste your time; sketches are limited to a max of 1280×752 resolution, even on powerful devices.
