More Sketching on the Go: Freehand Sketching with Adobe Photoshop Sketch and Adobe Ink
With Adobe Photoshop Sketch you can create realisticor out of this worldsketches on your iPad on the go, and you can easily share them with Photoshop CC or via email, the community, and more. Adobe Photoshop Sketch features an array of drawing tools.
Using my iPad Air 2, I drew Marika Resting, shown in Figure 1, from observation while our cat was sleeping. For this project, we'll focus on drawing with the mark-making tools in Adobe Photoshop Sketch. We'll sketch using our fingers or a passive stylus (such as the Wacom Bamboo solo) and the pressure-sensitive Adobe Ink stylus.

Setting Up and Exploring the Interface
Let's get started with an overview of the Adobe Photoshop Sketch interface. When you launch Adobe Photoshop Sketch, you'll see a series of project panels, as shown in Figure 2. Tap on a project panel to open a canvas. With a canvas mounted, the Toolbar and menu appear along the top of the screen. On the Toolbar are the mark-making and coloring tools such as pencils, brushes, and markers, as shown in Figure 3. The menu features the Share, Import (picture icon), Pen (Hold Pen to Connect), Target (activate virtual slide ruler and shapes), and Full Screen View icons.

When not in an active project canvas, the top menu displays the Share, Add New Project Canvas, Trash, and Select (pen on document) icons. On the left side are the Draw icon (click it to access Settings) and the plus (+) icon, with which you can add a new project with canvas panels.
