About this app

If you are learning to draw, you already know that you need to practice. A LOT.

This app will give you hundreds of portraits and poses to practice on. All you need is a pencil and a piece of paper.

๐Ÿ‘ Are you struggling with likeness? No problem, use customizable grid.

๐Ÿ‘ Are you lost in details and missing on the main shape and form? Blur the reference photo!

๐Ÿ‘ Are colors distracting you from seeing the correct value? Use the grayscale filter.

This app will give you EVERYTHING you need to learn drawing realistic portraits. Except for will to practice :-)

This app is pretty good but has a couple unintuitive aspects that could be fixed. First, you can swipe to go to the next photo, but you cant swipe to go back...why? You can flip the image with a button that is close by, but it flips vertically. ?? I feel like most people want to flip it horizontally, right? I do. But to do that you have to open a menu.

Great app for checking your drawings, though UI can be improved: When positioning the photograph over the reference, the reference kind of snaps to the photograph. So when I try to change the rotation or zoom of the photo, moving my thumb and index finger first does nothing, then the photo suddenly jerks into a new position, overshooting what I was aiming for. After that, adjusting the zoom/rotation works smoothly. Positioning the photo accurately is difficult like this.

Fantastic! Who needs Sktchy? After waiting (and waiting....and waiting....) for Sktchy to come out with an Android version, I found Drawing References. This is a great app, tons of reference photos, portraits, poses, young, old, etc. Also has a neat timed practice feature to hone quick sketching skills. Couldn't be more pleased with this app.
