Kind of abandoned this game by now, but I have a nice drawing of Fluttershy out there. Search Fluttershy by drawing title, or my name, if you like. And to the author, I love how you put ponies in there. It's too bad not all of them seem to be in the game's dictionary. Are they?

I like this game a lot, really i do. However I wonder how you can become a featured artist. Anyway if someone can tell me that would be great......, so here are some hint and reminders.

go left right with arrow keys to adjust brush size(make brush bigger and smaller)
(Z) to undo brush stroke
(R) to redo brush stroke
backspace to undo letter
click on the color swatch 2 times to open, press and hold down and then drag onto the stage to pick a color for your drawing
