Idle Sketching

Now and again I find myself with a little free time. I've recently discovered a drawing program called Colors on the Nintendo DS that's pretty handy. It's nice because its capabilities are limited and the screen is tiny--which prevents me from overdoing anything or trying to get too fancy. Plus it's got this neato playback function that tells you everything that's wrong with how you make drawings.
Here are a handful of my initial explorations.









A quick shout-out to the dudes that made Colors and the drawing playback possible.

That was more instructive than I thought it was going to be...
They're like the little segments in between episodes of a cartoon on a Thursday afternoon.

That's really cool.
I can always sit and watch someone drawing.
It's always interesting and informative, and also relaxing somehow, to see the process :)

Sounds like an awesome program. It's weird how restricting our resources often strengthens our work.
