Four brands of colored pencils are suggested when you pick the color from your reference photo: 150 colored pencils by Prismacolor Premier, 120 colored pencils by Faber-Castell Polychromos, 76 colored pencils by Caran d'Ache Luminance, and 72 colored pencils by Derwent Coloursoft mixed with 72 colored pencils by Derwent Procolour. Option for graphite included. Bonus feature: downloadable, printable Skin Tone Value Viewers for drawing portraits. This app works without Internet.

Ratings and Reviews
Must have for CP artists!
What a great tool! I tested it out on a few images as well as work I’ve done and the match is great. It’s as accurate as the image allows. But it correctly identified the use of colors in one of my own works with the exception of heavily layered areas. Love love love this tool!
Helpful but might have a bug or two
This app is very helpful but I find a problem. For example, when I put the circle on a color of green it says that that color is gold. Not sure if this can be fixed in the near future or not. I certainly hope so because this app is extremely helpful to any artist.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review 😊 The app suggests the closest match, which may be quite different from the picked color. There are only 120 colors by Polychromos, and you can pick up millions of colors. Anyway, we are constantly improving the accuracy and performance. Expect update with Derwent colored pencils soon 😊
Color picker not working!
I haven’t used the app for a couple of weeks and it stopped working. I can’t clear the last picture and add a new photo. When I tried to add a new photo from my gallery the message says there are no photos or videos. I didn’t pay for a one time use. What gives? I would have given a higher rating but there is not app support, just buy and spend more. Phooey!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
