I didn't know i could paint until i played this game.
Iv never been the most artistic person but this has really made me what to learn more about drawing/painting. Once you have finished the main lesson's there are a few mini lessons to complete, you don't get step by step help on the mini lessons but by this point you will be pretty good on your own.
There is also a free paint section which has a library of images to choose from or if you have a dsi you can take a pic with the camera(at least i think you can, i have a ds phat). Overall this game is really awesome, the only thing that could be better was more lessons!! Also i wish they had some nice music playing while you paint but it's not such a big deal.
Anyway if your a beginner or even if your an experienced artist im sure you will have a lot of fun with this one.
