Hello, guys. When I zoom in on Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6 to work on some details, I have issues later when I zoom out. My drawing has pixels all over, etc. The other day, I used the wheel of my Intuos Pro to zoom and it frigging cropped out the rest of my drawing... Can somebody tell me how to prevent this in the future, please. Thank you in adavance.

Hi! These tutorials have been so helpful and I've really been picking up some useful tips from them, so thanks a lot for that :)

But  if you don't mind, I do have a quick question on rotating the canvas. I have it enabled but every time I open the program it say the video driver is not installed correctly... any idea? :(

Sorry to bother.

I can't draw what I need to because in my 'edit' bar there isn't a preferences. option.

hmmm... Im not sure. There must be a way, or maybe its placed somewhere else.
This is only in the PRO Version and not the Express or Free version.

I have the PRO version. I recently got the android versions.

I solved the problem. (sorta) I just fiddled with the canvas sizes. I will find that rotate button one day... someday I will find it.

Thanks for the tutorial by the way Paris! It helped get me started a lot. (especially the pucks. I had no clue but I use them all the time now.)

Basically... All you need to know is that the different blend mode layers do something to the layer below it!
Multiply darkens the layer below and the other 2 brighten it. Now depending on what colors you have on the layer below and on the blend layer... you will need to experiment to see different results.

But remember that Multiply doesn't show any white and keeps the black. Anything in between it will darken :)

Hi, I'm pretty new to this program so I don't know how to use much of it. I posted a questions thread in another forum ( www.polycount.com/forum/showth… )but was not able to receive any replies. Do you know of any solutions to them? For example, how do I move an object solely in a straight line?

Thanks in advance. :3

I read it and the answer is no to all the questions. 
Sketchbook pro is purely for just drawing and coloring using just your skills and with no help and extra functions. 
Photoshop is designed to help people accomplish things that they can't do manually.

I did start to work with sketchbook for twoo months but I have a big problem that I cannot solve. When I draw the lines look like scrabble although I try to drow slowly or even with fast moves, it's same . It looks like to do with shaking hand. Lines are not smooth and clean.
Can anybody help me with advice or any tip.
Looking desperately for answer.

Thank You.

Hey Paris! ^^ I really need some help :(
I have been having problems with getting lines as crisp and as clean as yours. No matter what I try I always end up having unclean lines. Can you help me in anyway? Has it got something to do with resolution or pen settings? :( Hope I'm not a bother ^^
Thank you
