Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

My favorite part about this game is that, at x50 replay speed, it makes you look like a better artist than you really are.
Least favorite part? there is no "save for later" aspect... like if you wanna take a break during free draw. but oh well. minor complaint.

great job!

Playing this has been a great experience for me. I'm no good at drawing but looking at others I learnt some bits and eventually on a couple of occasions people enjoyed what I drew and told me so. Made my day each time. Now I wish I had a tablet, using the mouse can be very hard at times.

However I have 2 issues with it. A few times the picture I just drew wouldn't save, I had to start over. Doesn't happen often but it hurts to lose a good piece. And now that it's not on frontpage anymore the rating system doesn't work. My drawings never get enough votes to be listed... Even though it's not great, I want people to look at what I've done and vote.

But other than that, as I said already, it's been awesome and I learnt a lot.

To Jusperos who answered my drawing of a cauldron with a very kind comment: Thank you! It means a lot coming from you. I watched you draw a few times in awe.

I wish I could fix the saving issue, but it seems that there may be nothing I can do about that. If I ever make a game like this again, or has any user-generated content, I now know to focus on that system, to make sure it can at least backup until the game connects properly again.

Yeah, the ratings sadly will take much longer now since the amount of viewers has dropped. I need to have judgement otherwise one vote of 5 will make any drawing #1 (and that would really suck :P).

Glad you obtained something out of this game, that makes me very happy to hear as a developer :)
