It doesn’t matter if you’re as good as Picasso or can only draw stick figures: with the service 500px, you can discover images based on a sketch alone. 500px is a newly launched search engine that allows users to search for images in a more creative and interactive way. Rather than browsing with words, artists can search using sketches. 500px’s homepage includes a drawing board where you can sketch any image you want in various colors. Automatically, the search engine will start finding related images with every stroke. Image results are segregated into landscapes, people, animals, travel and city.
