But Tayasui Sketches+ came out with a wonderful II.0 update today that definitely brings it’s game up to a qualifiable level for some pro work:
Ruler! (Paper is the only other drawing app I’ve seen with this so far).
64-bit engine that makes it noticeably more responsive
wet paint color blends that you would expect at the pro-level.
As a hobbyist though, I appreciate it’s less intimidating ‘skeuomorphic tool selection’ and Apple-like limitations to their tweakability.
I’m obviously no high-quality artist but I was playing around with the new ruler and Chinese ink, gel pen and pencil to rapidly create something maze like. The finer detail was the smallest I could get through zoom and ink size (there’s no option for higher size canvas dimensions).
Tayasui Sketches II is a solid and long-overdue update (at least for a couple of the tools). If you’re at the beginner to hobbyist level such as myself, you’ll find a richly rewarding drawing app that’s not intimidating in any way. My 4.5 year old has a ball with it!
In the end, it’s nice that we’ve reached a level of being able to easily pass files back and forth between different apps and take advantage of the strengths of each. Strange omission that you can’t choose canvas resolution sizes though, hopefully that’s not too far off in the pipeline.
