..it is possible to get your 'masterpieces' off the DSi.
The DSi can access Facebook via a WiFi link. When it's on Facebook you can put it anywhere you like.
A stylus with a finer point works better for drawing.
I find it a reasonable substitute for the real thing, when the real thing is impractical. The lessons are as good as I've seen in art books and think of the trees you are saving.
It really is a great game, the lessons are good and it does show you how to draw, shade and paint and can be applied outside of the game too.The only shame about it is that you can't get your paintings or sketches off of the ds. I will say though that it can be very difficult to get things to look the way you want them too as obviously the stylus (pen) and the touchscreen aren't completely configured just right and whatever your drawing (say a line) will not go exactly to where you drew it to or hoped it may go. but on the whole a lovely little non messy way to get creative and have some fun.
Nintendo Art Academy is a must buy for anyone with artistic aspirations if like me you have no idea how to transfer them on to canvas, this super program will teach you how, in a series of step by step simple to follow lessons each one building upon the last.
I have owned Art Academy for a little over 48 hrs and have completed 6 of the lessons, included in these are a simple pencil drawing of an apple a basic sunset using paint for the first time, an apple tree as seen on the Art Academy TV advert a still life lime, which I now look back at, amazed that I was able to paint such a life like image, the last painting lesson I attempted thus far was a large rolling wave thats full of movement I find it hard to think that I was able to create this image, I just can't stop looking at it..
I wish my so called art teaches at school could have instructed me in this simple method of painting and drawing I certainly would not have been driving a truck for a living today.
Art Academy certainly gets 10/10 from me as the best Nintendo DS program ever!
Must go now I've got to do lesson 7.
