Happy Holidays: SketchBook Updates & New Brushes

Skip to entry content


If you’re a SketchBook Member, update your apps right now! As a little holiday treat to you, we’ve got a couple of updates to both mobile and desktop!

On desktop, say hello to a whole new world of brushes. Not only have we updated the entire engine behind the scenes, but we’ve added several brand new brush types, sets, and color editor improvements.

Check out our release video to learn more.

For Mobile users, we’ve done a lot of tweaking underneath the hood. Those lucky enough to have an Apple Pencil will see increased performance, from stroke stability to palm rejection.
But there is one special change for iOS users – the mobile inking brush! Now you can use that bold, hard edged line at your desk or on the go – wherever  inspiration takes you. The inking brush will, of course, be available for Android in an upcoming update.


Everyone at Autodesk is saying farewell to a member of the family- the perpetual license. For all individual desktop software products we make, including SketchBook, perpetual licenses will be sold until January 31, 2016. After that date, we’re heading into the future and going full membership.

But perpetual users- don’t panic! If you purchased SketchBook Pro 7 from the Autodesk eStore in the last year, you should have received a special coupon code. Find this code in the email you used to purchase. You can use it for one free year of membership at Add a year of membership to you cart, and use the code to bring the purchase to $0!

If you can’t find the code, that’s ok. Contact eStore support with your order number right here, and they’ll fix you up.

If you aren’t a SketchBook member yet there’s no better time to join. Try membership out for free for 15 days – even if you’ve already used a trial – right now.

Happy drawing- we can’t wait to see what you create!
