Art in an instant. Really.
If you’ve never painted before–I’m beggin’ you–check out this insane, playful, new “drawing app” from DeviantART. Just free yourself up to explore fresh ways of making marks and using color. Experiment with the tools on the bottom of the screen (link below)–you don’t even need a mouse or stylus. There’s a color wheel, an opacity slide, and a load of cool effects you should try on the fly. Some of the shapes and effects are displayed above. They include a web-like brush, bubbling circles, a delicate grassy spray, turbo swooshes, and dripping paint.
The filters include blurring, sharpening, and desaturation. You get to experiment, and erase instantly (see top menu and click: “Image” then “clear canvas.”) if you’re a control freak. You also get to erase the last line you drew by clicking the “undo” button on the upper left.
If you get addicted–don’t call me.
Just keep painting.
