Drawing & Painting

Coming soon: Project Gemini


Project Gemini is a new painting and drawing app for pen and touch devices. It’s designed for professional-quality work, but easy enough for anyone to use. Combine vector and raster content and simulate natural media. Project Gemini works seamlessly with other Creative Cloud apps including Photoshop, so you can send your PSD to Gemini to create beautiful artwork and illustrations with complete freedom.

    With Creative Cloud, your apps keep up with your ideas. Use Adobe Capture CC to turn photos into one-of-a-kind color themes, patterns, stencils, and brushes. Quickly lay down perspective in your drawings using built-in grids in Adobe Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw — or make custom grids from your own photos. Create perfectly symmetrical brush strokes with virtually no effort in Photoshop CC. And count on Photoshop brushes to deliver fast performance and stroke smoothing for clean, elegant lines.

  • So real, it’s unreal.

    Stay in your creative zone with digital tools that feel and act just like the real things. Paint with watercolors that bloom naturally on your canvas in Photoshop Sketch. Work with scratchy pencils, creamy pastels, and hundreds more Photoshop brushes from master illustrator Kyle T. Webster. Plus, get ready for new technologies that simulate different types of paint and let you mix paints with realistic results.
