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

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!!

Love the App, but wish it were all free

I LOVE the app so much and have for years. It has been a real spark to daily creating and I love the community, support and fun of it all. I don’t mind that the inspiration is now curated as it has brought more quality images to create from. I love the vast talents of artists - from self taught to degree holders, beginners to advanced.

My only complaint is the app is clearly moving towards being a subscription/paid (only?) service and I am not interested in that (yet anyway). The tips are fine, but I like to explore on my own a lot too. Daily is too much. A tip once a week would be better. The new update makes the paid portion/daily tips front and center, which free member cannot access. I understand we all have to make money and absent ads, what can they do? I will keep an open mind as updates become available.

As an aside, I had a whopper of a techno problem and was blocked from my account. They were AWESOME in helping me resolve it.
