Fwiw, sometimes I switch to a thicker (like an ink pen) stylus when drawing on the 3DS, to get a better grip (i.e. more control, less awkward angles at times) than with the thin ones stored in the 3DS. Could it be the drawing angle (e.g. the way you hold your hand over the 3DS to avoid touching the screen) from paper to touch screen giving you trouble?

Ah, okay. Besides, even NAA doesn't accurately reproduce the behaviour of traditional media, so it's likely there are differences if you try to draw the same things on paper vs. touch screen in one of the drawing apps.

I'm very late, but thanks @Shiromikio, I'm glad you like my portrait! I love your kitty, it's so cute

I haven't painted much lately, but since I have a little free time, I got back into NAA. Here's one of the add-on lessons. It doesn't really look like sherbet, but I did my best. I'm pretty sure the palette is at fault. I should try re-doing it with my own colours. Also, this lesson made me realize how difficult it is to tell very light colours apart on the 3DS screen: my background looks much dirtier on a computer screen Fortunately I saved the session, I'll touch it up later. Right now I'm a little sick of it. XD
EDIT: corrected the background. Still looks more like caramel ice cream than orange sherbet. Oh well, that's good too.

Here's an older one I haven't posted yet.

Aaand here's my Goomba! I might have gone a little overboard, but it was a good opportunity to experiment a little.

WOW, these are amazing. I am realllly bad at drawing, but this game sort of looks really good!
Are there enough lessons that can teach me to draw pretty well?, because I think I may pick this up if there are.
If not, what are some techniques you use to draw really well?

The software has some very good tutorials, and it starts with the basics. It's up to you how much effort you put into it, you need to continue practicing beyond what it offers.

I'd totally recommend it. Between Art Academy and Colors!3D you can turn your 3DS into a very capable sketchbook.

@Big_Al1 Thank you!

@BlueToad Thanks!
I think the lessons are great to teach you the basics. I've seen complete beginners draw amazing things in a few weeks using the first game and this one. They won't teach you how to draw from imagination, though. But they do explain a few principles like atmospheric and one-point perspective, a little bit of colour theory, etc. which you can then apply to your own drawings.
Isn't the eShop version slightly more expensive? I know that in Europe the retail version is almost 10€ cheaper.

@Waann: I buy from the US eShop, so it's cheaper than buying a physical copy in my country. It may vary from place to place, I suppose.

The Goomba lesson went out to all regions. He should have gotten it.

We got a different lesson in Japan, but it would be nice to have the Goomba lesson too.

Yeah, probably, but at EB Games in Aus, it's the same price. May get it sometime soon

I've been working on some lessons, it takes time to get used to AA as a new art tool.
I'm still frustrated with pencils, but will overcome it someday. =)

@Waann: You're welcome. The glass reflections came out very well in the ice cream bowl. The goomba looks great, I like the background you've added to it! Sorry but the cat's not mine, lol, I just borrowed Vince's finished piece and posted it for people who wanted to know what the Fur and Feathers lesson is like. I tried the lesson but the result was distinctly unsatisfying (then again, I wasn't paying much attention either, lol), so I didn't bother to post it. Seeing people's posts here though is giving me a bit of an urge to try something again.

@Lilifish: Whoa, someone's been busy, just saw this right after posting. Nice work on all of them. I like the mushrooms study the most, possibly because of the way the texture of the paper is showing, and how the lines express the texture, along with small patches of darker colour often seen in mushrooms.

Lilifish

@Shiromikio Thank you! I really like using black and white on colored paper, specially blue. But this mushroom lesson was something new to me, because it's brown on brown! I'm glad you liked it

@Dinsdale Nice dog! I like the painting cleanness

And I'm sorry for posting so many images just once. I just realized now it's not very good and I'm going to be careful from now on.

@Dinsdale - I like your style and the way you see colour. Is the dog a shiba inu? A friend had one and your drawing looks a lot like her poochie.

@Lilifish - Don't worry about posting them all. You got caught up and we got to see your work. That's what matters. Thanks for sharing.

@Dinsdale: Good work! I like the arrangement of the mushrooms and the pastel colours on the edges of the caps.
