When it comes to design, Autodesk products are definitely among the best. All engineers, architects, designers, etc. have had a taste of programs like AutoCAD and Maya (among others). Truth is, the average Joe usually doesn’t need such tools and tends to ignore them. Though their products tend to be complicated and confusing to most of us, Autodesk’s new application will allow the mass consumer to channel our inner Van Gogh, thanks in part to an easy-to-use interface. Artistic tablet-owners will be happy to know Autodesk has released SketchBook Pro, optimized for Honeycomb devices.
This application gives users the tools to create brilliant works of art (or just doodle around). Though artists of all kinds and abilities can take advantage of SketchBook Pro, it also represents a great tool for the working artist. Designers, illustrators and even architects might be able to use this app to sketch out their next big project.
Check out the video embedded below to see Sketchbook Pro in action. If it happens to spark your interest and you want to let your inner artist flow, you can find it in the Android Market for $4.99. The price is not bad considering it is an Autodesk product. It might be a great tool for you, and it’ll even help you save some trees. Definitely worth the price, in my opinion.
