Alias Sketchbook

Recommended Posts

I think it's great for quick sketching and doodling, but not much else. If you look at the pricetag ($179,-) you can clearly see that Alias need to wake up!

Come on, Painter is $249 for the download version and beats the living crap out of any painting software. If you talk about value for money there's no way I'd go for Alias Sketchbook.

 

You might wanna try Open Canvas though, it's FREE and already has a nice feature set. Open Canvas..

Ah hm.. well I noticed Open Canvas isn't free anymore, though it has a free trial. At 50/70 bucks for the normal/plus version it's still cheap though.. the price Alias Sketchbook pro should be.

Sketchbook works great with a tablet pc or cintiq (demo'd both), but the lack of paths and masks really hurts it. I use a 9x12 Wacom and prefer the PS/Illustrator combo for most of my stuff, which is typically hand drawn on paper, scanned, then colored/tightened in the Adobe s/w.

 

For organic/loose/artistic subject matter, I really enjoy painting in PS/painter, but for product design, I am just faster and more accurate with pen and paper.

sketchbook is really a pain in the butt. if you are using a mouse forget about it. if you are a fortunate desginer and have a wacom table or tablet pc it will be a different story.
