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)
- Arty Party 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 (Copic, Mepxy, ProMarker, Prismacolor or 'Other') 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 an Arty Party!
ARTY PARTY 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 level of intensity – (be warned, 'Intense' is named that for a reason!), 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.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is amazing really helps with the struggle of what to draw. Just would love if I could add my copics! I can't scroll down to the rest of my copics on my iPad mini 1 or iPad 4 maybe just because they are less powerful but it isn't a very labour intensive app. If you could fix this issue that would be great. Also if you could add custom drawing tools that would be amazing for all of the brands you haven't listed. Maybe even a system where you can say what copics you need to refill so they aren't in colour challenges until they are refilled. All round great app thanks Jazza and Rob!
Worth every cent & more!
I've had this app for a long time now, and thought it time to write a review...
The app is VERY cheap considering the amazing value you get! It's helpful in three very big ways:
ONE: it takes away the "I don't know what to draw" mentality that usually keeps people from drawing and being creative. It gives you some (very... creative) drawing prompts which are absolutely amazing.
TWO: the app is great both for people who can and can't draw, and its arty party mode is the best for groups of friends (my friends and I had an absolute ball with this!)
THREE: the app really improves your drawing skills by getting you to practise drawing people, things and places you wouldn't normally think to draw, in ways you wouldn't think to do.
Overall it's a very well made app and I've not yet had any problems with it not working. I've suggested it to all my friends heartedly and I've bought it twice for myself (for different devices). Honestly, the price is too low considering how quality this app is. There are so many fantastic things about it (I love making my own generators, personally, and they're great for making personalised party games with friends). I can't express how much I love this app and how much it's helped me improved!
Thanks so much! :)
Such a Great App
I love this app and all the things I can do with it! All I'd say is that I'm unable to scroll on lists (e.g. When adding materials I can't see the whole list and it doesn't let me scroll) and I'd like to be able to add my own coloured pencils and what not as the colour numbers don't match what's available in the app and the custom list doesn't seem to let me use numbers. Otherwise I love this app and the motivation it gives to me draw interesting things I could never come up with myself.
