For a quick tutorial

  1. On your palette, go to Tools > More > Tips ‘N Tricks

  2. This will run you through an overview of your Tilt Brush controllers and where the various buttons are. 

View featured sketches

When you run Tilt Brush for the very first time, you'll be shown an introductory tutorial teaching you how to paint and use the palette.

Every time the app is started after that initial run, your palette hand will by default open to the Sketchbook. In the Sketchbook, you can choose between viewing featured sketches from Poly, sketches you liked on Poly, and your own saved sketches. You can also choose to start a new sketch. 

We regularly feature new sketches from Poly, so keep checking back to see new content every week.
