About this game

Jazza's ARTY GAMES is a fun tool you can use to accompany your drawing sessions to practice with, challenge yourself, and most of all, have fun with your art!

DISCLAIMER: There is no 'in-app' drawing, this app is an accompaniment to your drawing sessions to be used for generating ideas and challenges.

The ARTY GAMES app features:
- Multiple Profiles (each with materials and game/app settings)
- Single play mode with 8 fun game options (Time limit optional)
- Challenge Mashup mode for Rapid-Fire Art Challenges!

In Single play mode you can play with or without a time limit and challenge yourself with one of eight fun idea generation and art practice games.

1 - COLOR CHALLENGE:
The Color Challenge game assigns you between 1-5 colors you’re limited to creating your artwork with. The game generates these colors from the colored materials you add to your Arty Games profile such as paint and color pencils. You can also add Markers by brand and build your materials from the official colors and sets for each brand! That way you can Play games like the 3-marker challenge without messing up your collection of markers!

2 - CHARACTER CHALLENGE
The Character Challenge generates random combinations of Character Designs and Scenarios for you to draw. These can turn out funny, or epic – and there are billions of combinations to be explored!

3 - ENVIRONMENT CHALLENGE
The Environment Challenge generates a scene for you to draw based in either an Interior or Exterior environment.

4 - INCREMENTAL DESIGN
In the Incremental Design challenge, you draw a character’s head or body in 5 stages which are revealed one by one, so you won’t know what the final design will be until the very end – surprises lie in store!

5 - SCRIBBLE CHALLENGE
The scribble Challenge generates a random doodle for you to copy down and turn into a work of art.

6 - COPY CHALLENGE
In the Copy challenge, you are given an image to reproduce as closely as possible, which will help your observation and drawing skills, and can be a good warm-up to a drawing session too!

7 - DESIGN MIX
The Design Mix challenge presents you with two random items which you must thematically or aesthetically combine in a creative way.

8 - CUSTOM GENERATOR
The Custom Generator allows you to build your own lists to generate ideas and games from. The possibilities are LITERALLY endless!

If you’re really up for a challenge, you can start a Challenge Mashup!

CHALLENGE MASHUP MODE:
This mode is great to challenge yourself in, or play with a group of friends. Simply select the number of challenges you want to play and the time limit (do you want the rounds to speed up or slow down?), and after you pick the games you want to be included, hit GO and get ready for a mashup of insane challenges that will test the skill of even the most experienced artists.

Jazza's Arty Games is a fantastic app for coming up with new ideas, practicing art skills, and randomly generating prompts for art and writing. I wish it would not fade out, but that might be correctable in the app settings and/or phone settings. I do wish there was a way to share what one creates by uploading photos, files, etc. with moderated community critiques. The idea may be beyond the scope of the intended design, however. All being said, wonderful app!

I love Jazza and this app! The app has so many options to customize, randomize, mix and match, etc. I never have to sit and think, "What should I draw?" It sometimes gets too specific for me! But the drawing ideas really do help your imagination and increase your skills as an artist. You will definitely be drawing things that never would have crossed your mind before and it is a blast!

It's a fantastic concept and does it's job. As a long term fan and owner of the game I think there should be more materials as you have much more than is here but that could be copyright issues so I won't take off stars. I would like some watercolor or more paints because the colors are a bit limited in my experience. Other than that fantastic game I love what's there ❤️
