Sketchable is a painting app for Windows 10. It enables you to paint large strokes on large images with no lag. Images are created in ‘Journals’, of which you can create any number at any size. It’s like having multiple sketchbooks always open.
This sophisticated app has a large set of features usually found only in expensive desktop programs. A few of the more obvious features found in the app are layer blending modes, customisable tools, importable brushes and paper textures, and more.
There are some features that aren’t as obvious at first glance. One such gem is the ability to paint using Stencils. These give you the ability to constrain your brush stroke to a variety of different shapes. Each shape can be transformed, moved, scaled and rotated.
Once you’ve tried painting with stencils, they will become integral to your work flow.
Once you’ve created your stencil art in Sketchable, you can export it as a PSD.
