Scarygirl Illustration Kit (3DS) Review
Scarygirl Illustration Kit is a nice little art application for the 3DS. It allows you to draw vector shapes and make animations out of them if you so choose. It's not too hard, and it thankfully has some nice tutorials that teach you the basics. They are also repeatable, so if it's been awhile, you can brush up on what to do.
I only have two problems with the program. One is that it can be a bit tedious to navigate the menu on the touchscreen. It would be nice if the buttons could be set to a shortcut for some of the functions you use most often. The second is that you can't add to a shape you made, only resize it. It isn't the end of the world, but it can make coloring something a hassle, and it's best to just redraw the piece.
Scarygirl Illustration Kit is a fun little program to mess around with. It won't help you create super detailed pictures, but it is a nice thing to make a few simple animations or some nice vector-based artwork. If you have any interest in art, it might be worth checking out.
