One of the reasons I bought note 8  was because of this feature. If i knew they remove it, I would hv buy iphone x instead. =(

Going to assume that since it's now May of 2018, this feature isn't coming back. That's pretty lame.

I loved participating in this, but unfortunately, when my tablet died, it isn't available for the desktop version of the app - even the paid one. 

Could you guys please consider adding it to the desktop version? I really did love Sketch This; it's been instrumental in helping me grow as an artist.

Can someone please help!!!!!! When sketchbook updated, i lost the option to do the sketch this challenges. I I've looked everywhere in the app and cant find it. Did anyone else have this happen, and how did you fix it?
