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!
Great App, Great Community
The app is simple and easy to use, and you can make as much of it as you want or feel comfortable. The weekend theme challenges are fun and really get you thinking. One of my favorite features is being able to swipe-right on a submitted artwork and view the original photo that inspired the artist.
Sktchy has a large, diverse, supportive community of artists from all skill levels, ages and regions. The artists are also the models, so you'll need to upload at least one profile photo before you can share your work. That said, there are lots of members who seem primarily interested in being models, so there's no shortage of photos for inspiration photos.
Not an artist, still love sktchy
Have to admit, I don't like to draw. I've been drawn a few times, and it was thrilling, but that's not what keeps me coming back to sktchy.
Who knew that it would be so engaging/addictive checking on people who DO like to draw, seeing what inspires them and how the inspiration measures up to the work. It's my go-to when I have a few minutes to kill, and feels ultimately more interesting/less mind numbing than something like Facebook, especially as I get to know the sktchy community through their artworks and their photographs. Well done!
