Good web-based (tablet-oriented?) art/drawing games/apps?
December 26, 2006 12:07 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for fun web-based drawing/art games and toys and apps.

I've just gotten a Wacom tablet, and I find myself suddenly thinking of all these wonderful little art toys I've played with on the web (cursing my mouse all the while) over the years. Trouble is, I can't remember what any of 'em were.

Show me what you got. Bonus points for fun+collaborative, with more structure than, say, Drawball.

This site is a lot of fun and I know at least one designer who has put it to good use.

Retrievr is wonderful. It uses your sketch as a way to search Flickr photos.

A tip: the search software is much more sensitive to blocks of color and their relative position than line drawings.

Many of the art apps on the National Gallery of Art Kids' Art Zone site might fit the bill.

It's not web based, but it's free, and I love, love, love me some Artrage.
