Autodesk, Inc. named artist Luis Peso the winner of the company’s recent SketchBook Hero Image Contest. The contest called for images created with Autodesk SketchBook digital painting and drawing products.
Peso’s winning submission “Progress” will be the splash screen for Autodesk SketchBook Mobile—an application that has been downloaded more than 2 million times. Peso is based in Spain and used Autodesk SketchBook Pro for iPad to create his winning image. He is a professional goldsmith/silversmith, but spends his free time sketching and is a member of the International Association of Mobile Digital Artists.
SketchBook users submitted digital paintings and drawings created with Autodesk SketchBook products, used for illustration on desktops, laptops and mobile devices. The general public voted for one of seven finalists, which each represented different countries including France, Germany, India, Ireland, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States. Phillip Gruhn’s “Surfacing Fish” and Laura Lukauskaite’s “HooDoo” were second and third runners-up, respectively.
