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
Colors need work but still wonderful
I would like to see the ability to make multiple customizable color palettes. When inputting the colors of pencils, all was great because I have mostly Prismacolors. However, I would like to add more than just the marker brands shown. I have Promarkers so all was fine there but, I used "custom markers" for my Windsor and Newton pigment markers. It was inconvenient to not be able to type in the color names myself. I had to pick the closest color name from the Prismacolor stock names. I thought maybe I might be able to add another custom group for for the Spectrum Noir series but alas no. Same issue with “Paints". I have oil, acrylic, gouache, and watercolor paints. It would be handy to be able to have multiple subcategories with the ability to change the title and ability to type in color names yourself if available colors are not provided. Other than the color hiccup, I found everything else about the app thoroughly enjoyable, easy to navigate and all around intuitive to a new user.
Not just for artists..
Obviously this app is designed for people who draw paint sketch and do other forms of picture type of art. However, I am not talented any of those areas of the artistic world but I still love using this app as a writer. It’s good to come up with characters and scenarios for writing sprints and when your brain just can’t come up with anything. It’s good to help get the creative juices flowing, and it’s really good at helping you create random diverse characters.
I think a lot of times we tend to write and create things that are like ourselves and or that we are used to, and using the random choices on this app really makes you stop way outside your comfort zone and come up with something that you aren’t used to whether that’s a character Who has a different race or maybe has a disability, or is a different age or possibly somehow may be a different religion? All of those things are randomly generated which means that you have to step out of your comfort zone and step out of what you know to in my case right but in most people‘s cases draw or paint something new.
I really love this app I love that it’s fun and it brings out the creativity and its users. I love that it both makes you think and takes the decision to think completely out of your hands. And I just love that it’s fun and easy to use!
Everything's pretty great !
Other than the fact I can't seem to get different brand to mix on anything for things such as the 3 marker challenge and whatnot , this app is great !
It's good to get ideas rolling and I use it for keeping track of my markers on the go , since I have a few duplicates from either family gifts or just forgetting I had one .
Other than not being able to mix things or at least my app not letting me for some reason at this moment , I really like the app and the price is well worth it alone to avoid duplicates !!!
