Do you guys think Sketchbook is good enough to make art that is totally finished, polished and ready to sell prints of? Someone said no to me before, but I've seen a few artworks by highly skilled pro artists using sketchbook that seem good enough to sell on posters. Here's one on youtube. Skip to the end to see the finished art.


Are there any really great, must-have advantages that Photoshop or Corel Painter have over Sketchbook?

I'm trying the mobile version on Android which is okay but missing a few things. When I looked at the computer version it looked really good. Besides, I don't think it matters what program you use, even Gimp can be used to create good artwork. More important to set up a good image size and resolution for printing.

Good question, but I agree, I don't think it matters what program you use as long as it will give good image quality and resolution for printing. There are so many painting programs out there right now. Whatever one you finds works well for you art is the one you should work in.

Take a look at Krita also ( https://krita.org/).

As long as you can export your art to a decent print quality, then it doesn't matter what the program you use, as long as it does what you want.
