SketchToy is a free online sketch creator which allows you to create sketches online which you can then share as live presentations via link. These live presentations show you actual drawing whatever it is that you’ve drawn on the canvas. There’s no need for registration, you can start sketching right after opening up the website.
Toolbar which you can see at top is at the same time menu and a toolbox. The two green buttons on the left are for creating a fresh canvas and for saving your work, which is necessary before you share the link to the finished sketch that you’ve made. Orange options are for brush size selection, brush color, vibration (you can add vibration effect to the sketch). Erase and undo buttons are also found here. Blue buttons all the way at the end are there for quickly sharing the sketch via Facebook or Twitter.
It’s always better to just show how something works than explaining it with words. For this reason here’s a link to an example drawing animation which you can see on the screenshot above:
On the link above you can hopefully see the words from the screeshot written out automatically after opening the link. The same thing would happen if we sketched an actual drawing. Check out some of the featured sketches offered by SketchToy:
