What's New in Version 1.8.13
This update fixes a bug introduced in the previous version that prevented some iOS 7 devices from launching the app. Sorry for the glitch! Also included:
• New app icon background by artist extraordinaire Regino Roy III
• You can now use your own photos as inspiration. Bring on the self portraits! Pet portraits! Urban sketching! What else can you do with this new power? We can’t wait to see.
• New tab bar design puts drawing inspiration and photo sharing just one tap away. It's a big plus! (Pun intended.)
• A new way to get inspired: Tap the funnel icon in Inspiration to filter photos by Followers, Following and “Draw Back” (artists who’ve drawn you), or choose “The One” to meet your mystery muse.
• You can now easily follow new artists by tapping the “Follow” button above the top right corner of their artwork (you won’t see this if you’re already following the artist)
• Improved image upload experience
• Activity now displays full comment text and active hashtag and mention links
• Lots and lots of performance improvements and squashed bugs, including one that caused profile photos to disappear in rare cases
We hope you enjoy the new release! If you have any feedback or questions, email us at email@example.com and we’ll get back to you asap. You can also find us on Twitter at @sktchyapp.
Amazing place for artists of all levels, to mingle. It's incredibly encouraging when other artists WOW your works, (especially when they are AMAZING). I believe those WOWS alone will save lots of great potential from dwindling. I have not seen ANYTHING mean or inappropriate. There is some nudity, but hey we're talking art here isn't a little nudity expected? Haha
Kudo to whomever came up with the new "THE ONE" filter option. Keep the great updates coming!!
The best art inspiration app to hit the app store
Without a doubt, the best of the best! I love creating and drawing using the uploaded portraits as inspiration. The navigation system of the app is so simple, and the other artists have mind-blowing talents. Ever since using this app, I've been consistently productive with my art! I would recommend it if you're new to art and and want to strike up some ideas, or if you want to brush up your skills.
No more creative block!
I love this app!! I used to play on French Girls but I wasn't very good at drawing on my phone. I wished there was something like this and now there is. The inspiration photos, drawings and support from the community is so warming and energizing. Highly recommend this app to anyone who likes to be creative. (I do wish there was a way to Favorite your friends so you can see when their photos were drawn.)
