Pick a color from the photo, and the app will suggest which colored and graphite pencil to use.
This app is a huge help in choosing the right colors for your artworks. 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.
App is developed and published by the Colored Pencil Artist, Jasmina Susak.

Ratings and Reviews
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 😊
Virtually Useless Without Accuracy Feature
I’ve been using the desktop version of this app for a couple of years and have found it very useful. Unfortunately, I assumed that this would work in similar fashion. Boy, was I wrong! On the desktop version, each brand is given a match accuracy that allows you to choose the pencil that is closest to Milt the photo. In some cases, one brand can very close (say, 89%), while the others may be much lower (65% or less). Without that information, I don’t feel this app is of use to anyone. I wish I had been more careful before purchasing this watered down version. I have uninstalled it, since it’s of no conceivable benefit to me. I would not recommend this to anyone.
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!
