The two apps that we're going to be using throughout this course are something called Adobe Sketch and Adobe Line, which are two new applications from Adobe. We're going to start off by talking about Adobe Sketch, which is just like it sounds, a sketching application that allows you to do lots of different stuff, whether it's a website mockup, digital portrait, many different things. Let's take a look. going to open up Adobe Sketch. And when you first open up the app, you're going to notice that you have several different sketches that you didn't create. They're actually called community sketches and they're part of the Behance network.
In fact, Behance powers a great deal of what's going on inside of this application. When you scroll through here, you can see examples of the work that people are creating using this application. So, for instance, if I were to tap on one of these, I can explore this project, which has some pretty cool stuff in it. As you continue to scroll through, you'll see lots of different iterations and this is basically a work in progress if you're familiar with the Behance nomenclature. Up at the top, you can also see where you can follow this person on Behance, and at the bottom, you'll see where you can appreciate the project, which is essentially like a Facebook like on the Behance system.
To exit out of this, all you have to do is tap right here. So as you can see, there's a lots of different things that you can do with this application. It's ultimately up to you how you use it. Now, let's go out and take a look at Adobe Line, which is a little bit different. Adobe Line is going to be more of a precision drawing application, which you use to create line drawings, architectural renderings and digital scenes. So, let's take a look. Inside of this app, when you first launch it up, you're going to see these three example files, which were created by Adobe to show you exactly what this app can do. The first here is a line drawing which has several different shapes in it.
When I tap on this, it's going to launch up and it's going to give you some information about how it was created. It's also tell you about something called smart guides, which you can get rid off just by tapping anywhere on the screen. Once you do that, what's interesting about this examples files is you have the ability to actually see how they were built. Tap up here in the top right corner, so that it goes into full screen mode. And I'm also going to turn off this little target icon right there. And then if I hold down three fingers on the screen and start to scroll backwards, you can see the history of this file as it was created. It's just a bunch of lines put together.
And Adobe Line makes it super easy to create illustrations just like this. I can jump back out of full screen mode by tapping here. And then back to the gallery by tapping up here in the top left-hand corner. The second example here shows you what's possible in terms of architectural renderings, which is pretty cool. You have the ability to draw in perspective using Adobe Line, which makes it super easy to create scenes like this, which we'll talk about in great detail later on. And let's take a look at this little desert scene. When I tap on it, you're going to notice that this little information box pops up talking about stamps.
Now, for now, I'm just going to dismiss this by tapping to the outside of it. We're going to talk about stamps in detail later on. So I'll hit OK and that's just going to get rid of the stamp and I'll go ahead and turn that off. And then I can step back through this one just like I could the other illustrations by holding down three fingers and then scrubbing backwards. And you can see how the file was created from start to finish. Which is a really cool feature. Adobe includes all three of these files so that you can see exactly how they constructed these and to give you a little bit of inspiration and show you what's possible when you're using this application.
Whether you're using Adobe Sketch or Adobe Line, the possibilities literally are endless. And you're only limited by your own creativity when it comes to these applications. So I highly recommend that you check out both of them and see how they fit within your creative workflow.
