Art / Art Academy: Holland_Oates89 tries to learn to draw
« on: September 05, 2015, 04:23:12 AM »
One night, I was bored out of my mind so I bought Art Academy Home Studio. It's awesome! I never really considered myself an artist but this 'game' (if you can call it that) does a really good job of teaching the basic art lessons any artist would teach, but in a totally clean, easy environment. I'm not trying to sell the product but it's been really cool so far. Here's a couple images I have from the lessons:


Those are MiiVerse links so I have no idea if they will stay up or display properly in the future...

I like that this game doesn't restrict you too much, and that it actually shows the artist's (Vince???) demonstration in real-time. They also treat every tool like it's real-life counterpart, which is inspiring because it makes me feel like going out and actually buying these materials when I finish the lessons. My only gripe about the program so far (I just finished the strawberry lesson) is that I'm not able to rotate the TV image upside-down, which is a common beginner's drawing technique and would help immensely. I also wish I could use a "trace" mode in free paint to, for example, practice drawing Vince's artwork. Still, this program is really cool and if you suck at art I highly recommend it!

Music / Need Finale help? PM Me!

Hi there!

I just signed up seconds ago, and I can't wait to start submitting arrangements for this awesome website.

But before any of that, I thought I'd let you guys know how I can help in a more immediate way.

I am a professional music engraver - I work for MakeMusic, the company that makes Finale.

I'm here in an unofficial capacity, so please don't expect me to speak on behalf of the company, reveal secret information (I'm not really privy to anything anyway as I work on their other program, SmartMusic), or address any feedback about Finale as a software program.

That said, what I can do is offer help. If you have questions about how to use Finale or are stuck in some way, please feel free to PM me!

Or, if it's ok with the moderators here, I think it might be an even better idea to reply to this thread with questions - that way, other people can see the solutions we come up with as well.

FYI: I currently use Finale 2012 and 2014. I am very familiar with earlier versions of Finale, but I'm probably a bit rusty since the company stopped officially supporting Finale 2011 and earlier so I rarely use it. I mostly use a Mac but we work in both environments all the time so we can test our repertoire to make sure it looks good.

Thanks and I look forward to your questions!
