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.

So far so good

Ehhhhhhhhhh whatever12345

I downloaded the app about 2 days ago and since have really enjoyed the way you can basically collect lots of photos for inspiration in the app. it's really cool that it puts it all in one place! i also really like this app because the people uploading photos for inspiration a lot of times really try to make their pictures dynamic and interesting and it's not just a bunch of people going "draw me plz!!!" with a horrible snapchat filter picture that crops out half their face. There are a lot of users on Sktchy who seem to really care and that totally rocks. i also like that it has a very small community feeling to it and doesnt feel like when you upload art that youre shouting into the void like instagram feels a lot of the time, lol it really does feel like people are actually able to see your art and theyre interested in it. overall this app is useful if you enjoy drawing portraits and want to become better at them, because a lot of the "inspiration" pictures people provide are their own faces. it's also a cool app if you have some nice photography that you'd like to see inspire people to make art. so far im excited to experience more!!

A small thing with a big impact

Blah blah, proper name

I thought that this app was just like any other social media like Instagram and Facebook, but when my father, an artist himself, told me about this app a couple times, I finally decided to give it a try. I am a particularly new to sketching and drawing from real life images, but seeing me “inspiring” (it’s a thing in this app) an artist, it was an impactful moment of being able to see how others perceive you through art.

For those wondering, this app is not like the other social media, and it’s not like a drawing app. It’s a way for thousands of artists and non alike. There are also rarely any debate and rudeness around this app as it’s a supportive and wonderful community.

Also, peeps thought I’m a boy, but I’m actually a girl.
