Autodesk SketchBook on Window 10

The Autodesk SketchBook app has just updated for Windows 10 devices. This latest update adds support for several new languages (which are connected to the device’s overall system settings, not adjustable within the app) and also brings back the Pen Mode which, according to the version notes, was much-wanted by users.

Autodesk SketchBook is a very powerful art app that offers most of the tools any artist would need to create professional-grade images. It also supports the Surface Pen and was recently updated to be fully compatible with the new Windows 10 operating system and a larger variety of devices with different screen sizes and resolutions.

Here’s the official description for Autodesk SketchBook:

Autodesk SketchBook is the drawing app made for everyone who loves to draw. With SketchBook, drawing and painting doesn’t feel like using complicated software, it feels like a natural creative experience. It’s as close to pencil, pen, marker, and brush as a digital tool can be.

SketchBook is as easy to start with as a pencil and a piece of paper. Take out your favorite Windows 10 device, open a canvas, and let your creativity flow. SketchBook has a powerful brush engine with over 140 brushes that perform just exactly as you expect. Ink feels fluid and smooth, pencils have just the right amount of texture, and synthetic brushes blend colors in a natural way.

SketchBook is designed with stylus and touch input in mind, and every pixel of the interface is made to stay out of your way and keep you in the creative zone. Work with unlimited layers, unlimited undo/redo, autosave, and canvas sizes up to 10,000 by 10,000 pixels.
