Online Artsy Fun: Sketch ‘n Paint!

sketchnpaint
Feeling artsy, but don’t have a sketchpad or image creation program handy? Check out Sketch ‘n Paint! over at OneMotion.com–it’s what Microsoft Paint wishes it could be.

colorselection
You have a palette of already-chosen colors down at the bottom, and you can further customize your color by hitting the HSL and RGB tabs to play with color sliders. Mix white and black into your color to your heart’s content, choose how saturated you want the color to be–it’s ALL there!

brushselection
Right beside the color selection panel, you’ve got settings for your brush. Play with brush size, pressure, diffusion, and other settings by clicking and dragging over the individual words–the more red that covers the word, the stronger that setting is. (For instance, a Size meter fully colored with red means a REALLY big brush)

fileundoetc Along the right side of the browser window, you’ll see various file settings; the top ones are for creating, opening, and saving files, plus undo and redo buttons.

Farther down, you can open and close the Paint module (the color and brush panels), modify the lines on screen, erase lines, and pull a color back into your brush with the eyedropper.

And, way down at the bottom, you can zoom in on your image, move things around on it, and even put masking on or take it off. (Like I said, this is what MS Paint wishes it could be!)

This completely freehand tool is easiest to use with a physical mouse rather than a touchpad, but it’s great fun regardless. Visit and start playing around…you might just find yourself randomly making a masterpiece!
