If you’re like me and haven’t touched your Nintendo DS in ages, or you have several because they come in so many colors, you can now turn your DS into a Digital Sketchbook! Jason Dunn at jasonrdunn.com has some examples of what is possible on the DS, provided you actually have the talent up front.
Here is an excerpt from the instructions:
The lower screen is used as the painting surface, while the upper screen displays the image at normal size. You paint with the stylus, but you can use just about anything as a brush. A full-size Wacom stylus works just fine on it. The color picker and brush settings are revealed with the L1 key, and you can choose a hard or soft brush and adjust the pressure and size settings. You can also assign pressure input to size and/or opacity of the brush.
Beware however, there is no UNDO, but there’s also no undo with real paint, so real artists will have no issue with this. However those of us who are lucky to be able to draw the turtle from the art school test, may find this more challenging.
