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.

Why play party games - when you could play ARTY GAMES!
Great excises, had some issues, but works fines
I'm taking a class with a Disney animator and these games are very similar to the types of exercises he has us do at the beginning of class. The app is a great way to warm up or just draw when you don't know what to draw. It will challenge your skills and imagination. I do have some issues with the apps functionality. The copic markers are labeled wrong, just the 0000 and 000 markers. Because of the numbers they're mixed up. I also did not like that in the environmental challenge some of the descriptions were not environments. I would get stuff like zombies battling bears. That seems like more character than a location. Those were the only things I noticed. It's still a great app to have for so many reasons. It's occupied my time for hours. S
When at first thought about buying the app I was slightly skeptical on the quality. Now that I have used it I have found that it is a load of fun! The combinations are great and actually give some good ideas that are a lot of fun! The different challenges are actually quite useful for practice and I am very impressed on the quality! I am honestly very pleased with it and highly recommend it to others who love to draw! I hope you add more and create more content like this! Thanks Jazza!
A Great App for Artists
This app is incredibly useful for any level of artist. The creator is a talented artist and tutorial maker, and the resulting app is better than I could have imagined. The modes are all so unique and helpful, want to make a character? Then here's an idea. Not feeling that? Then try copying this strawberry. No again? How about taking these two scribbles and making an art piece with then. Still no? How about a unique environment to put everything in. This app is sure to help my artistic pursuits as well as yours. Thank you Draw With Jazza!
