I recently installed a new iPad art app called Sketch Club after many talented artists praised its feature set. This is my first art made using said App and I have to admit that it is really an impressive tool in my iPad Art arsenal.
I haven’t played with it much so can not provide a complete review just yet but from the one tool I have had the time to use, it was great. That tool was the Sketchy mode which allowed me to achieve strokes that are quite natural and enabled me to sketch freely with ease.
I am still an avid Procreate user and don’t plan on abandoning it anytime soon as it provides me with amazing brushes and fluidity as-well as the 4k canvas I require for many of my personal landscape and Concept Art projects.
The interface of Procreate is more to my liking but the Sketch Club developers have nonetheless done a great job presenting the different tools and modes. The thing with Sketch Club is that it is more focused on the social aspect of Art and as such, the interface was split to gallery mode and club mode and tends to feel cumbersome. Procreate, on the other hand, is more personal and its interface feels less obtrusive in my opinion.
I did like that SketchClub has a detailed stats page that provides details on the Art at hand (total time spent on Art, number of strokes made, which brushes were used and many more features)
For now, Sketch Club will remain in my Main Arts folder as it could prove to be a worthy complementary app to Procreate.
