Nintendo DS Sketches

Alright, let's kick off 2008 with some DS sketches. I picked one up as a Christmas present for myself (after being inspired by Sparth's and Sim-R's DS sketches), and have been addicted to it from day one. I recommend this to EVERY painter. It's absolutely perfect for on-the-go plein air sketches, as well as for quickly recording what happens to be in your head at the moment. Of course, the Nintendo DS is pocket size, and boots up in about 3 seconds. Hats off to Jens Andersson for giving us this great app!
