Sketchable: A new painting tool from Photoshop kids
The sons of Mac painting pioneer & Photoshop GPU/brushes maven Jerry Harris have released Sketchable, a fast new painting tool for Windows 8:
Silicon Benders is the brother team of Miles & Ryan Harris. Painting apps appear to run in the brothers’ genes: their dad is Jerry Harris, co-author (with Keith McGregor) of early Mac paint app PixelPaint Pro, the first full-color paint application for the Macintosh. Jerry is now a Principal Computer Scientist on the Adobe Photoshop team.
Sketchable is designed to be easy to pick up and start using with a minimal learning curve. It is a particularly pressure-sensitive savvy app offering a wide range of expressibility in concert with its tools. Sketchable has a simple interface with plenty of room for expansion. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing this app grow over time. Highly Recommended!
