An expanded retail version of Nintendo's DSiWare Art Academy art trainer and creator is being released in Europe next week. To mark the occasion, Nintendo Spain has produced a series of four videos showing famous works being reproduced on a DSi XL. Watch them all after the break.
The clips look great, obviously, and the game app even has a "free draw" mode that lets you create your own work of art. Two Art Academy titles were released around this time last year in North America, and are available in the region via DSiWare right now.
Art Academy is a portable art course that anyone can join to replace the lecture-like structure of art school, or the trial and error on canvas, with a Nintendo DSi system. Art Academy: First Semester will guide you through the basics of using pencil and paints, which draw like the real things. With your own paintbrush set and color palette, you will learn texturing and blending techniques, along with how to depict light and shade. There is also Free Paint mode where you can select photos from your Nintendo DSi Camera Album to draw from. In just a few lessons, you will be discovering your inner artist and creating your own masterpieces, with art skills that you can apply with real-life materials.
