You know those selfies that you’ve been taking? Well here’s an idea of what you can actually do with them (apart from annoying your friends) – upload it to Sktchy. It’s an app founded by Jordan Melnick that pairs user-submitted portraits with artists who might just take your mug shot and turn it into a piece of art.
It’s a really great idea, especially if you’re looking for an inspiration (besides your own reflection) as you’d draw other people’s portraits and in turn, people draw yours. I love the idea behind the app – it challenges your creativity and it’s also a fun community of artists who support one another. People can leave comments and feedback on your portraits and even a virtual high-five for a job well done!
You can download the app over at iTunes, and it’s available for iPhone. I’ve tried the iPad version and it’s beautiful as well (it’s a little smaller than the screen size, but it’s Retina ready, so images are crisp and clear.)
