Fun with the DSi Camera

We had a lot of fun with the DSi camera this weekend when we went home to visit family. apparently the camera didn’t think we looked much alike. It said mom and I weren’t even related even though I think we probably look more alike than anyone. I didn’t post that one here because Mom is shy. Our favorite part was distorting the pictures with the stylus – we laughed until we had tears in our eyes for some of them.

Colors!

I finally got Colors! installed so I can paint on my DS Lite. Here’s my first experiment. Click here to see how it was painted.

DS Geekery

so i finally bought myself a used DS lite.  w00t!  my intention was to get the lite, an R4DS card (which i also ordered), and then i could use Colors, a little Homebrew app to sketch  (and record your sketches as movies!!) on the DS.  i just checked USPS and it looks like my R4 card is in my mailbox, but it’s horribly dark down the road with no streetlights so i’ll pick it up tomorrow and try it out.

but until that came i figured i’d need something to entertain  myself so i picked up My Spanish Coach (as a refresher course) and Professor Layton and the Curious Village, a strangely addictive brain teaser puzzle/mystery game.  i’ve almost finished with Layton tho, so may have to trade it in soon for one of these:

My Fitness Coach (wii) because since i quit smoking i wanna make sure not to gain weight

Personal Trainer Cooking (DS) Cookbook on DS!  Voice controlled!  awesome!

New York Times Crosswords (DS) because i’m a nerd

WIP: Diana

Spent about an hour working on Diana tonight, made a tiny bit of progress, got started a bit with the color layering. Working on the desktop with the 22inch widescreen and the tablet was much nicer than the laptop, but I think I need to install my Photoshop brush libraries and Painter X to give me a few more options.

edit note: I’ve added the final image into this post as well. 12/29/08
