What is it about?
Adobe Photoshop Sketch includes powerful tools you love from the desktop app, including pencils, pens, markers, erasers, acrylic, ink brush, soft pastels, and watercolor paint brushes. And your Apple Pencil will get you drawing and painting in no time. You can also use Photoshop's trademark layers feature to add depth and complexity that would be way harder using real, physical paper.
Why we love it
We love Photoshop's wealth of features, and having them available wherever we are is a huge sell. Our skills aren't quite good enough to do them all justice, but it's nice to know they're there if we ever get better at arting.
