Sktechbook Pro

I used Alias Sketchbook Pro for a while. It's a pretty neat sketch program but I haven't touched it in a while since it has some annoying flaws too. Additionally, support for it has been stopped and I found Artrage, which is just as good, easier to use and costs a fraction of SB's price. But during my dry years I did quite a bit of work in it. The phone and apple mouse are the only realistic still lifes I made with SB. The city was a unplanned sketch that grew. I guess SB was good for me, since I could just doodle and didn't have to commit to finish the painting. I was so discouraged, almost afraid to sit down to do a complete painting, since I was afraid of letting myself down over and over again.
