As someone who likes to paint and draw, I really enjoy this game. Ive seen on a few websites that it has had poor reviews, I can understand why - if the buyer is not into detailed art painting - then this game isnt for them. I spent nearly an hour yesterday painting one picture. All the pictures need a lot of detail painted. Its really relaxing and enjoyable - a must for a serious arty person. It also has mini games, which you can earn items such as frames and paintbrushes. Why have I only given it 4 stars? Because the game doesnt save all your paintings! =(
So far i have painted 5 pictures and i am really enjoying it. To paint one picture will roughly take between 1-2 hours, but you can save your painting at any time. Its also fun to mix up colours and try to get them as close to the showing picture as possible. A great game that is very relaxing to play with an added bonus of no mess. Why did`nt i give it 5 stars then you may be thinking, thats because you can only save up to 4 pictures and theres 15 pictures to paint altogether. So all that hard work that you put in to painting a picture will end up getting deleted, which is a shame. By the way oil paints are the best in this game.
Paint by ds is fantastic!!! As a budding artist I found this game interesting as I can paint in watercolours, oil, or pencil without the hassle of getting out my pad and paints, it is relaxing with the background music while painting. I have just completed two masterpieces which I have saved in my gallery, and got quite good comments about them from the critique!! What also is good about it is that if you dont have time or want a break from painting you can save it and continue another time.I think this game is a must if you like art and is well worth the money!!!
