Watercolor Effect

This app is quite simple to use. All you need to do is to browse through the dozens of presents and select any one that you want. It comes with 30 filters that can change photos to artworks. It does not require many editing tools and it also lets you adjust much of the effect you want in your sketch. It is special as it lets you paint the photos yourself. You will not need any filters to trace the image with your fingers to create any digital art. Many other apps do not have this feature. This app comes with a 3-day trial and you can then pay $3.99 a week or $2.99 per year.

Clip2Comic is an excellent app that can turn photos of your favourite people into caricatures. This app has a very simple user interface, making you more likely to use it on your portrait shots. Unfortunately, it is only for iPhone users. You just need to tap on the original photo to open it and then quickly transform it into a comic book style drawing. For turning your photo into a cartoon, this drawing app is one of the best iPhone sketch apps out there. It is free with in-app purchases. Additionally, you will have to pay $0.99 to $1.99.


This app has similar features as Clip2Comic in that it can also turn regular photos into cartoons and caricatures. What makes Toonme different is that it uses artificial intelligence to create realistic effects. It lets you choose from dozens of styles and even tweak them to create different results. Unlike Clip2Comic, Toonme is available in both iOS and Android. That means you can use it on virtually any smartphone you may have! You can download Toonme for free. But you may have to buy some extra features and presets through in-app purchases. You also have the option to subscribe to Toonme Pro for $4.99 per month. A bit steep for one app, but if you end up using it a lot, then you should consider it.
