I’m still wrestling with Sketchbook. Today I’m missing layer masks. Without them all edits in Sketchbook are destructive. The workaround is to have layers upon layers, some in multiply mode and others in normal mode. Working like this is confusing and time-consuming.
Oh well, Sketkchbook is the horse I’m riding for the rest of this project. Maybe Sketchbook isn’t the problem. Maybe I just I need to spend more time with it. I do appreciate the brushes and the simple interface. All the same I’m missing a few features that would smooth out the workflow, such as layer masks and folders. And, I notice that I’m getting weary of drawing and painting in Sketchbook and then having to open Photoshop to finish the editing job. I’m starting to think that I should do everything in Photoshop. I’ll admit that I’m intimidated by Photoshop. But the more I use Sketchbook, the more I think I should get over my Photoshop Phobia.
