Sktchy is love... Sktchy is life...
This review is long overdue, but I have the benefit of time to give the best assessment. I've been using this app for about a year and half now, and I can say with utmost sincerity that Sktchy has changed my life. Before, I felt stuck mentally, creatively, and professionally, but the endless inspiration and amazingly supportive and positive Sktchy community helped turn it all around for me. If you're looking for a drawing app, this isn't for you. If you're looking for creativity, inspiration, artistic growth, community, and connection, this is absolutely for you. Whether you are a seasoned professional artist, a young artist just coming into your own, a casual doodler, or just someone who wants to inspire art and be inspired by art, there is a place for you here. I cannot say enough good things about Sktchy... So I'll just say, Thank you, Sktchy, and welcome, newcomers!
Must have app!
Wonderful, supportive community. Weekly challenges in addition to a constant flow of inspiration from people around the world. Super easy interface. All around my favorite app!
One suggestion, maybe add a feature that notifies you if someone adds one of your photos to their queue? I could see that going either way honestly, so I understand if it's a no-go. On one hand, awesome, someone wants to draw you! On the other hand, it's been a month or so, where's my portrait? 😅 I know I personally have over a hundred pictures on my to-do list and on top of that, I procrastinate.
But I digress. Again, awesome app! Thanks, Sktchy!!
Not just for Artists
Even if you don't draw, this app is still a lot of fun. Throw some photos up of yourself and you might get some portraits back. A drawing of yourself makes for a great profile pic.
I do love to draw, but haven't been drawing lately. This app has motivated me to draw ever day. In a really short amount of time I have noticed much improvement and I am becoming more creative.
It's also really nice to see all the great work up here and explore all the different styles. Everyone is also very supportive and it is nice to get positive feedback.
