I see that photoshop sketch has many features concept artist and visual development artist/people in general who draw in photoshop have been asking for a long time. Will any of these features ever make it in into full photoshop for everyone to use? Photoshop seems to be about a decade behind in some tools for artist that I was surprised they are aware of but never implement that are appear in the sketch app like...

1.) -Perspective grid
2.)-Watercolor or natural blending (Mixer brush needs improvement, you cant get a hard edge and blend with the same brush which is common in most drawing apps, you have to switch to dry, or wet to get either.

3.)- Stencils and rulers, draw eclipses, french rulers, incredible useful feature
4.)-Smooth drawing - smooth/corrects your stroke as you draw
5.) -Mirror tool (not sure if thats in sketch I dont have ipad, just watched videos of the program but photoshop is long overdo for a symmetrical drawing tool. I feel most can agree)

I used to think the people at adobe didnt really care too much about the "artsy" drawing/painting type of people too much but then I see they made a dedicated app specifically designed for us that should be in the standard photoshop or a program accessible to ALL people it can be disheartening. Adobe "knows" we exist, so Im just hoping that they will cater to us aswell with some of these features for its main user base. Thats all

I Totally agree with the above post. I'm not sure why these useful Adobe Sketch features have not been implemented into the full Photoshop already. While Adobe are clearly developing other products in the CC line, Photoshop itself has not benefited from a descent update in quite some time. As a professional illustrator ( 'Artsy' type ) this saddens me.

Photoshop CC needs a real watercolor engine. Blender brush isn't nearly enough. Watercolor brushes need to be able to bleed like it does in Sketch, but hopefully more robust/realistic when it is in Photoshop.
