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!!

Please uncurate the inspiration

Crazy cat lady!

This is my absolute favorite app and I don’t write reviews but it’s really upsetting that the photo inspiration is curated now. Please for the sake of art and the wonderful community that this app has made let us access all photos posted. I have been a part of Sktchy for several years. I recommend it to my friends etc. all the time. It is a wonderful, supportive community filled with talented, amazing people! But curating the inspiration cuts away so many of those people. I want to see everyone’s photos as an artist. I want to decide for myself who’s pictures I want to paint, not what the app thinks I should paint. I still love this app, I have learned from it and found confidence in my art as well. This is very serious though. We all deserve the opportunity for our pictures (just like our art) to be seen and embraced!! Please please please fix this heartbreaking situation!
