Release your inner Bob Ross with this minimalist, highly-functional sketchpad
For those who don't, drawing almost seems some sort of wild black magic. To produce a recognizable image out of a blank white pad is an act of creation that borders on the divine. "Let there be ink," you said, and there was ink. Okay, maybe I was just jealous of kids who graduated beyond macaroni and construction paper. If you're one of the lucky ones with an artistic eye and steady hand, wargoth's Sketcher is your app.
Stroke and/or assault Sketcher's blank white pad with 12 different brushes in whatever mixture of hues and transparency your little heart desires. There's multiple undo and redo functions available, and the old-fashioned eraser won't even leave those annoying little nubbins all over your desk.
Panning and zooming is as easy as pinching in and out, and the canvas size is also adjustable.
If the blank whiteness is overwhelming, the app lets you do something rather cool - import an image from your gallery to use as template. When you save your sketch, the background image will disappear, fooling everyone into thinking you drew that perfect replica of Jonathan Taylor Thomas without a guide.
Using Sketcher on a small device is admittedly tricky; your fingers will quickly feel like fat ole' sausages. I envision tablet use would be way more relaxing as you compose your still life of slowly rotting fruit.
wargoth's Sketcher is exactly what you want from an artsy-fartsy drawing app.

Is there any way to increase brush thickness?
This app is OK, but it really needs the ability to change the brush thickness, I think. I seem to be unable to get anything but VERY thin lines or very stylized ones (like with Fur or other fatter brushes). If you just want to draw a thick line, you are out of luck, as far as I can see. I know it is a "sketch" program, but it would be nice to have the option to make the brushes thicker.
Thank you for this app! The developer is very responsive and helpful. The app is wonderful - I've been using it for two years now! One of my creations that I made using this app is now on a book cover. :)
Been using it on and off for the past couple years. Find it very easy to use and fun for quick doodles in random places. Would be cool to see some new brushes. The square brush with now solid color inside or something more funkier. Love Ribbon brush.
I really enjoy sketching on the subway with this app. The menu and ui are two reasons I can't quite give it a 5. If I want to erase it would be great to be able to use my stylus' s built in eraser or even my finger. Going thru several menus to get to the eraser is very annoying and usually I don't remember which brush I was just using ㅠㅠ it would be great if I tapped the side of the screen and the
Sketcher Pro is a gem for those who like variety in their art apps. The brushes are varied and cool, the interface is easy to use and the app works quite well. Love drawing with the stylus, very accurate and so much fun. Would really recommend this to all artists or doodlers. Thanks alot.
