This is pretty good. it reminds me of ArtPad's on-line canvas game from a few years back. Adding the element of multiplayer changes it from a fun tool to display one's art into an innovative feature that could push the less participatory among us to creators. The limited tools force people to be creative when drawing, and by showing how people draw their pieces, it allows people to learn the techniques of others.

As a suggestion, I strongly recommend there be a transparency option, where one could select a color and have it be varying degrees of translucent depending on the settings. For me, this would make the difference between "good" and "this is great."

Thanks for the review! Transparency is something that I have been thinking about. Currently I have a list of higher-priority things I wish to add, but if time is given, this may be added too :)

I am really enjoying this game. It's fun, and can be either a 5 minute timewaster, or a neat place to actually commit some time into a drawing. My only wish is that it came with a pressure sensitive-option for all us tablet-users. But none the less, its my new favourite place to doodle.

Can someone give me spoil on how to get the two secret medals?

Mattster responds:

No. Stop asking. And don't visit the author's Newgrounds page to see the descriptions of those medals either.
