Just downloaded, installed and testing it out. It's free, so I thought why not. Plus Copic markers seem to have great colours.

However, for unknown reason, my lines look even less smooth on Sketchbook. In real life my lines can be smooth enough, and on Elements, MyPaint and Manga Studio they look slightly less smooth, but still very acceptable. But on Sketchbook they look barely acceptable. I wonder what's wrong. It's not even lagging, at least not the way lag appears on MyPaint and Elements.

The brushes can rotate, but I can't find a button or something to make it rotate on command. I have to go through the brush settings like in Photoshop. I understand if it cannot detect stylus rotation or something, but sure it should have a set of button where I can press and it just rotates as you use? If it doesn't, I can't possibly call this an authentic marker using experience, because when you have a flat ended broad tip marker, rotating the marker is vital.

I cannot find the blender marker for some reason. If this is marker, there should be a blender marker, especially when the colours don't seem to blend the way real markers blend. There is also no way to make the ink dry or stay wet, like Corel Painter Essentials 's "dry watercolors" function, that affects how the ink mix.

On the bright side, its zoom function is very fun to use. And the program is free. But so far I don't see any advantage over other free programs, not even for marker testing. At least MyPaint has infinite canvas.

Verdict: Frustrating.

Edit: Yes, some can draw just fine with it. But personally, drawing on a NDS in Colors is easier.
