I got the same problem. 

Not just digitalistic sketchpad, sims also reset during writing. 

This make freelance jobs complete useless (sims cannot earn any money because they cannot complete any task)

is there a solution for the sketch pad on the other post? I posted this so I could get answers, after about an hour of searching online for solutions, so I’m not trying to search even further. I just want answers. and if it’s something that needs a patch, that’s fine, but maybe give me that information before you direct me somewhere else.

I’m a newbie, so it’d be helpful to get straight answers instead of pointed elsewhere like a normal IT person would do, lol...

 

also, how is EA supposed to know what packs everyone experiencing the issues has if we only have one forum dedicated to it? am I supposed to post my information on there? again, you’re policing the forums but not being very helpful.

This is currently a bug, and there is no fix for it. Please be patient.

I have this too. Painting gets to about 75% progress and then it resets.

 

Additionally I was trying to do the painting over and over repeatedly to get my sim to sit and paint, but at the 4th attempt the game crashed rather than the pad resetting. Unclear if the crash is related to the pad or not.

What happens when the bug occurs? The sims gets about 75%-90% done with the task then glitches out and teleports away from the sketchpad causing the task to end abruptly. This results in a complete loss of that character sketch as it doesn't save progress you have to do it all in one sitting.
What do you expect to see? A finished character sketch.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

Sims 4 Freelance Artist Sketchpad issue

★★★ Newbie

Xbox One - 

I have tried completing multiple freelance artist gigs and any time i paint on the sketchpad nothing happens. 

No painting goes to my inventory, no option about a painting shows up when clicking on my sketchpad, in fact my characters gig checklist doesn't even register that I have done it? 

Yet I'm being charged simoleons and levelling up skills? 

 

I'm really confused
