If you’re an aspiring artist looking to get your handiwork out there, Sktchy for iPhone could be for you.

Anyone can upload a portrait photo of themselves, and all the sketchers of the world are invited to transform it into a work-of-art. Though it’s worth noting here, artists can’t create their piece within the app itself – they must create it by hand or through another piece of software, and then either snap a photo of it with the app, or import it to their library.

Then, anyone can search Sktchy for existing pictures, swiping right on a portrait to view the original photo that inspired it.
