    Professional, yet simple to use. Great selection of automatic variances with a lot of manual fine tune and hi res save. Bravo!

    As usual, this
    app is perfection!

    The developers of the PhotoArtista apps for the iPad and iPhone (and including Grungetastic, VintageScene, etc.) have managed to make the perfect sketch app. This gives so much control with so much grace and simplicity, that there is little room to improve upon. More papers choices maybe? But that's just because I'm addicted to paper. So, do yourself a favor and delete those "sketch" apps that are basically just black and white photos with scratchy frames, and buy this app. This is what a real sketch app is!


    I have to agree with the other reviewers about not being able to put it down! Love transforming my own artwork into new aspects. Very easy to use.

    Consistently Cool!

    Love the Photo Artista apps, and the Sketch one is particularly engaging and creates some pretty incredible. Highly recommend!

    I have all their apps now and love them all.


    You folks have outdone yourself again. This is outstanding. It is perferct. And it became available on my birthday! I have already removed all other sketch apps from my phone.


Artista Sketch
Converts your photo into a sketched pencil drawing.

Photo Artista - Visual Haiku!
BUY Mac BUY Windows   BUY iPad BUY iPhone

Artista Sketch converts your photo into a sketch with wispy lines and delicate shading to achieve a light but fine rendered drawing.

In contrast to most digital art media, Artista Sketch comes very close to hand-drawn artwork seen only before in sketches created by human artists. Getting a similar result using traditional pencils would require expert training or extensive manipulation using an image editing application. No need to handle a pencil to feel like an artist. The only thing you need to create your original artwork is the appreciation … we will take care of the rest.

Features include the fine-tuning of ...
Pencil Outline, Outline Accuracy, Outline Strength, Shade Variation, Shadow Strength, Stroke Texture and Pencil Color.
Supports Hi-Res Images

Also includes ...
Artistic and Aged Paper, Presets, Full Resolution Output, and Email.
