Learn to Draw Digital Sketchbook by Walter Foster

Learn to Draw Digital Sketchbook by Walter Foster


Learn to Draw by Walter Foster is a great app that teaches you how to draw all sorts of interesting things like animals, people, flowers, dragons and more. They have different lessons that you can pick, by starting out with outlines that you trace. Each step gets more complex. You also use different tools like a sketch pencil, a shading pencil, a detail pencil and an eraser. There is a size slider that changes the width of your stroke, the pressure slider changes the lightness or darkness of the stroke and the hardness slider changes the edges of the stroke. You can zoom in to add more details to your drawing. You also have the option to free draw. You can also view all of your completed drawings.

This is the first drawing app that I’ve used and it’s a really good one. I had a lot of fun playing around with this app and making drawings. If you spend the time on it, you can really draw some great stuff. As a learning to draw app, in my opinion it falls a little short. I think it’s a really great idea and maybe with a few enhancements it could really be useful to some folks. I felt like the lessons were really short. The lessons are between 4-7 steps and it’s pretty much just tracing lines.

I think they need to spend a little more time showing you how to use the app first, then maybe the lessons would be a little better. For example, the shading tool is difficult to get the hang of at first and maybe a tutorial on that first.

That’s not to say you don’t learn anything. You definitely learn some basics, especially if you’ve never learned to draw before. This is a very creative app and it teaches you how to draw incredible things with only a couple of steps. I recommend this app, especially if you like to draw.
