Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Category: Nintendo DS
This game is a great introduction to the basics of drawing. The 10 lessons are very thorough and provide enough instruction to get great results.
You start by drawing an apple. It sounds easy, but the game teaches you line-drawing, shading with highlights, lights and shadows, and pencil points. It makes the difference between an apple, and an apple you want to eat, lol.
There is also an option for free painting which is where you can draw whatever you want while practicing the techniques that you have learned. There are options to save your drawing and you can delete and start over at any time.
Also, you can send (within the perimeter of your DS) a demo to friends so they can try the game for themselves.
This game also provides some historical facts about the drawing tools, etc which rounds out the educational value of this video game.
If you are interested in learning techniques to drawing a well developed picture, this game is for you!
