Custom Sketchbook Pro Pencil Settings

By May 22, 2012One Comment

So if you’re an artist that uses a tablet and a computer, chances are you know about Alias’s very affordable software Sketchbook Pro. This program is amazingly similar to an actual pencil and it’s the first program that I use when starting a new character. The basic brush settings that start you off are quite usable and may be all you need. But I felt there were just a couple of things about the opacity and the width of the brush that I needed to tweak in order to compliment the pressure that I apply to the tablet. So here’s a peak at my brush properties. I really think this takes the #2B pencil and puts it where it needs to be.


Have any custom settings or suggestions you wish to share? I’d love to hear about them!
Just write me at

Happy Sketching!!
