This is perfect for anyone in a funk about drawing.

Pictonary is a great game to practice your drawing skills.

Only now you can do it online and with your tablet tools.

I hope the few bugs that are lingering will work itself out. I still can't view the Art Portal link.

There seems to be a bug with Chrome which prevents it from working. Just click the Puzzle icon beside the medals on the page to view it. I also put a link in the description :)

Not easy to find really fun players, but I suppose I'm just not lucky, haha.

I'm wondering, what is this sort of Sims music that comes out at one point? 0:

Its fun easy and so far most people ive played with are a blast. 2 things I would like to see. add a "paint bucket" feature, and add a few more colors, a better tan like color and a better brown like color.

You can choose more colors by double-clicking any color swatch. This seems to be something people are not picking up on in the brief tutorial, so I'll be adding some extra buttons for that soon.
