It should appear in the quote above now.

Anyway, I consider myself decent at both Flipnote and Art Acadamy, although I find myself lacking in the imagination department.

Here's an example of some of my Art Acadamy Pictures I made in my spare time: http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m169/darkbuster13/BowserPa...

Wow, a lot of these pics are really good guys! You've inspired me to buy Art Academy when my DSi arrives in the mail Monday.

Is there a great difference between first semester or second?

I've not had time for much this week so I've been playing around with paints and experimenting the different brushes. These are a few of my practices paintings. The first one is a folly called "Old John" in Bradgate Park, Leicestershire.

There's no difference in the paint mode between the two.

Semester 1 has two tutorials and four lessons (and three mini lessons).
Semester 2 has only four lessons (and four mini lessons I think) and it assumes you already know the basics.

If you're only going to get one, definitely get the first semester as it will walk you through how to use the program and teach you a few things about how to sketch and paint.

@Taya - That's what I figured, but I wanted to be sure the paint mode was the same. Thanks!

I'm afraid to buy Art Academy.You guys can make some amazing work.I'm afraid I'll buy it and won't be able to draw.Could any of you draw good before buying this?

I could draw a little but this program is a good teacher. At the very least, you'll be able to produce the pictures in the lessons really well. The computer walks you through each step.

Still in the beginning stages of Art Academy. It is a very, very good tool considering how new I am to art. Also when I'm on the road I tend to write stories using my notebook. I also just uploaded a new Flipnote animation.

Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

I love Flipnote. My filpnote was featured in last weeks topic.

I wouldn't say I was good at drawing before this. One thing that makes it easier is having a grid on the photo to help aid in your drawings. I think it's taught me a lot and I bet you would be impressed with what you could accomplish as well.

Did you guys get the 2nd Semester application? I did. One thing nice about having 2 copies of Art Academy is you'll have 2 places to have saved works in case you want to come back and work on them later.

Here's my version of the the lily from the first lesson. It could probably use a bit of work. I kept getting interrupted with home-life while doing it (much to my annoyance!).

That lily is very good Victoria! I'm super excited about Art Academy. My DSi is 'out for delivery' right now according to the UPS tracker, so hopefully I'll be playing it soon.

I have had the points to buy Art Academy for weeks but due to my internet provider's and my local post offices' imcompetence I have not been able to use any internet and connect to the DSi Shop. Right now I'm using a pre-paid modem and plotting what my foirst Art Academy picture will be. I'm thinking a vilent tableux of what I would like to do to the idiot who lost my package.

I had no artistic background whatsoever (well, not visually anyway) and was genuinely surprised at how nice my pieces were turning out. Lots of room for improvement, of course, but it's an excellent tool for getting you over that initial hump of discouragement.

I definitely recommend picking up First Semester. Second Semester has some new lessons, and they're every bit as good as the ones in First Semester, but it still seems slightly greedy to me to release the same drawing program twice.

So First Semester: probably the best DSiWare download right now. Second Semester: use your own discretion.
