Summary: I bought this for my daughter because she loves to draw. Me being the sketcher I am had to try it. That is when my daughter had to beg me for it back. Its very enjoyable and I learned a few tricks I was not aware of. Great game and great art learning class within a game. I wish there were more lessons on it.
Summary: I brought this for my daughter, who is doing her gcse's in art, for our plane journey. She loved it, as did my mother, who is an artist. My daughter said it saved faffing about with pencil and paper when traveling, and gave her useful techniques when doing her homework abroad.
Summary: My daughter has had a couple of tutorials on this already and was quite pleased with her results. I had a quick go the other day. I did find it frustrating that you cant flip between pencil and colours to finesse the image but I was quite pleased with the end result. I am fairly arty so would expect the picture to be quite realistic but my daughter has far to go and yet her pictures are pretty good! Worth buying for one getting to grips with shading techniques etc.
Summary: I liked this game to start with, but then it got a bit boring when I had completed all the challenges. All there's left to do after that is free paint which is quite hard and gets boring very easily. Also, the drawing is quite hard, definitely too hard for someone aged below 7. Overall, I thought it was pretty good but needs a few more challenges and different thinks to paint.
Summary: I got this game for Christmas - and I'm 13 :D I had previously thought that maybe I was too old for Nintendo Ds games, but when I opened this I found that it was perfect! I played on it non-stop for the next week :) The first time you play, there is a demo which guides you through all the features and how to draw etc etc. I really liked the way you could mix colours in the on-screen palette too!
Conclusion: This a clever little program that teaches you how to create impressive pictures - from basic line drawings with a pencil through to adding light and shade with paints. It has its limitations, but it's certainly no gimmick and the skills you learn can be transferred to the real thing.
