Editors' Notes

Ever fancied being someone's Mona Lisa? We love watching artists transform our selfies with this inspiring app. If you’re more a maker than a muse, share your work with fellow creatives. Or, if you’re happier walking around a gallery oohing and aahing, simply enjoy discovering all the art on offer instead.

Only for drawing from photographs....


Very disappointing so far. Discovered very quickly that you can’t post a piece of art without also adding it’s ‘inspiration’ which appears always to be the photo often traced over to make the ’art’. I went with this and loaded up a dozen or so images that I like and could make into paintings. They took hours to finish uploading. When I finally found them online I tried again to upload a painting, and this time although I had uploaded the image I used for reference there was no way of accessing it, I could only choose random boring images from other people. I assume this is a bug? And if I should ever find it working I would find the way of accessing images very irritating. Sktchy ignores iPhoto albums (makes a few arbitrary ones of its own choosing) so I had to scroll back through months of images rather than being able to access my ‘art’ album. Not remotely user friendly.

A True Motivation for Artists


If you are an aspiring portrait artist then you will love this app. An endless stream images to choose from, to draw or paint, to upload and proudly share your efforts. Or to ask for critique to help you progress.

You can also follow other artists to inspire you. Being an artist can sometimes be a lonely pursuit but this app provides a whole community of artists at all levels to encourage and motivate.

You can now also make a bit of money by selling your art through the app, like a virtual gallery.

I've been using this app since 2014 and would never have progressed as quick as I have without it.

And let me say that from what I've read in the poor reviews, that it seems people do not understanding what this app is. Or take the time to actually learn the basics on how to use it. The app is also updated regularly any bugs tackled quickly.
