Thanks :) Just as a warning - it's not quite as easy to work with as other digital painting programs, since it simulates real-life media.  Takes a bit of learning.

For years, I've just been using paper and pencil, I'd hardly ever color, because either I didn't have time cause all these other story ideas I had to sketch out, or- I wanted to play a video game. Why it never occurred to me that I could simply look up a tutorial on youtube and get fast and good at coloring, I have no idea. o.o

I got a wacom tablet last year, with corel painter essentials and adobe photoshop elements. I love drawing, and pursue it very ambitiously, but I still don't know how to work the programs. ITS SO FRUSTRATING!!! DX
But it did get me more connected to youtube, and deviant. So... things turned out- I suppose. (Shrugs.) I get to talk to people who I can learn stuff from, now.

If you happen to have a 3DS, I would recommend the Art Academy title on that - it has a lot of really good lessons that teach you solid real-world art skills.  If you only have Wii U... well, sit tight I guess, they're bound to put out the lessons on that eventually!

I've had a 3DS for a few years actually. I don't have  a Wii u, I have a black wii. :P (All I got it for was Skyward Sword, really. P:)
I got the free version of art academy on my 3DS... it was neat, I liked it; I'd really enjoy getting my hands on the newer one. :) Thanks.

By the free version, do you mean "Art Academy: First Semester"?  That one was a DSiWare title.  The 3DS title, "Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone" is the better one with more in-depth lessons, although it is a full title so you'll have to spend a bit.  I recommend it! :thumbsup:

Yeah, DSI was the one I got. I'll check out the 3DS version, though. Thanks! :D

Thank you :)  I uploaded the picture to Miiverse, then signed into Miiverse from the computer and saved it from there.

Thank you :) The Art Academy colors are limited but sometimes that's a good thing.
