Sketches 02- On gaming consoles by Kim-SukLey Sketches 02- On gaming consoles by Kim-SukLey
So, I've been trying out drawing in videogame consoles. These are all done at the first attempt without any prior practice just to see what the software's and hardware's limitations allow me to do.

The first two drawings are done in Art Academy Sketchpad for the WiiU.
The third one is done in 3D Colors, for the Nintendo 3DS, and I particularly worked in an XL version of the console.

Of course, I prefer the WiiU because it has a bigger screen to work on, it has plenty more tools and Art Academy simulates real life art techniques such as pastels and colored pencils, with mixing and blurring tools, plus you can share your work directly at Miiverse. Perhaps a disadvantage is it does not have a layer system, then again, because it simulates traditional art, so you have to get it working out on one single layer, which is not a problem for me, but it could be a concern. The canvas options are not broad, but they do have 3 different textures to choose from and you can start with either a blank or a color sheet.
As usual, you can work and see your drawing at the TV screen to stick to the WiiU Pad.

The 3DS is easy to work on, but lines can be very rough. Since I prefer to use these systems for doodling and sketching for fun or concept things, the sketch lines do matter. However, you can try and work out a line-less style or a realistic one, which actually work pretty well. I honestly don't have time to Master 3D colors-- or plan to. This software also offers 3 different sizes of canvas and layers--- like 6 layers. You can use them as regular layers or what they are actually for: 3D finishing. According to the layer levels, things pop out or go way to the back of the 3D screen when viewed with that feature.

Art Academy can be purchased at the eShop for around 5 dollars, and if I recall correctly, 3Dcolors is around 6 or 7 dollars.
I do recommend these, specially Art Academy for the WiiU.
They are both easy to use, and if you are a person who goes out a lot or have free time at school, carrying 3D colors could be kinda cool.

Finally, Nintendo should be happy they get free advertising x'D

And for my usual watchers and SHC readers:
Albi's a b*tch! Can you see that? CAN YOU?!

These are impressively well done!  Drawing on the Wii U is pretty tough.  Again, I seriously adore your work.

It upsets me much that I cannot bask in the glory of your art Dx
(My car door doesn't like my tablet. The screen is covered in bars...)

Makes you wonder what it'd be like if you had a Vita and the artistry programs on that system.

Wow! The Wii U actually does a really nice job at imitating colored pencils! I thought those were actually traditional until I began reading your description. Great work as always! c:
