If there’s something that connects those of us that have even the slightest of inklings of interest and practice in the world of product and industrial design, its the smell of markers. That scent, as you take off the cap, is unlike anything else and even now, I’m sure, you’ll all thinking “mmmmmmm… markers”. So, its with great interest that I discovered that Autodesk has just released a version of its SketchBook Pro application (not to be confused iwth the iPad/Android SketchBook products) that contains more than 300 colors from the Copic Color System, called the SketchBook Pro Copic Edition.
In specifics, the update brings 4 marks, a multi-liner pen, a drawing pen and a new wetness parameter in the properties. Additionally, a free SketchBook Copic Edition is also available which has the Copic Marker brush set and a sample of 72 Copic colors and its available on the Mac App Store and through www.copic.jp (Which has both the mac and windows downloads).
Now, if only the software smelled as good.
