Awesome game, but some people draw things that are hardly related to the category or just draw it incredibly bad, could you add a hint button or something to help you guess, since I really don't like giving up...? Also, is it possible to remove the pictures that appear on my page because they me look like a amateur even though I'm not, I just don't have a lot of time too draw... Awesome game.

The art showing on your page is a bug, I've messaged Staff and hopefully that will be fixed soon!

Good game but having pictures posted on my page makes me look like a terrible drawer. :( But otherwise great game :) :)

Mattster responds:

I'm still waiting for Newgrounds to fix that >_>

I'm loving this game so much. I enjoy drawing and submitting to the art portal, it's really helping me further develop my drawing technique. (Quite frankly, I'm pretty mediocre right now. I'm trying to get better though!)

but some users make me crash or something [makes me dark green screen]
