Expressive drawing and painting with Sketch.
Create expressive drawings anywhere with Adobe Photoshop Sketch, the iPad app that lets you use natural drawing tools like pencils, pens, markers and watercolor brushes to get all the textures and blending effects you’d get on paper.
Sketch in action.
Sketch gives you an expanding set of drawing tools that interact naturally with the canvas, including a graphite pencil, ink pen, blending markers, eraser, and tools from Adobe Illustrator Line. Built-in expressive brushes open up even more creative possibilities. Use Split View to keep your drawings and toolbox side by side on the same screen. Then send your sketches directly to desktop Photoshop CC to take them to the next level.
Sketch with tools that behave like the real thing — pencils, pens, markers, erasers and custom brushes. And use a new watercolor brush to create beautiful artistic effects on iPad mini 2 and later, iPad Air and later and iPad Pro.
See what other artists and designers are creating in the community gallery. Upload your art to Behance as a work in progress to get feedback right in the app.
Send to Illustrator and Photoshop
Send sketches to Illustrator to scale your work up to 4x for high-resolution printing. Or send them to Photoshop as layered PSDs with the drawing, the paper background and the images all on separate layers so you can easily isolate your artwork.
Create without limits using brushes created in Adobe Capture CC. Any photo can be made into a brush for Sketch, and you can define the brush size.
Never lose perspective
Built-in graph and perspective grids make it easy for you to sketch the 3D world in your 2D drawing.

Your custom brushes from Capture CC can be saved to Creative Cloud Libraries for quick access in Sketch and Adobe desktop apps like Photoshop and Illustrator. You can also access shared libraries.
