My back hurts more and more and I think it’s getting worse. You don’t know it, but I’m forced to draw lying in bed. This is how I draw - in a semi-horizontal position - because of the pain in my back. I cannot sit and now it seems I will have problem with lying as well.

Aaa taki zeszyt kupiłam sobie kiedyś tam, gdzieś tam. Najtańszy jaki był :B (choć ceny już nie pamiętam), więc nie mam zielonego pojęcia jaki to papier jest. Od czasu do czasu zdarza się, że sobie o tym zeszycie przypominam.
paipuru asked: THE DS SCREEN IS PRESSURE SENSITIVE?! There's Colors! for DS?!? I'm so lost!!
Yes it is^2. I shall publish the answer so everyone else can also read it.
As far as I know Colors! began as a homebrew software for Nintendo DS, later they moved into smartphones and 3DS. The homebrew version lacks undo feature, layers, has 2 brushes (hard and soft) instead of 3 and the file resolution is smaller than in to 3D version. However, it supports pressure. Despite the excellent 3DS version, Colors! for NDS is still quite popular. It’s quite good for sketching and making color composition. Also the battery life and a little bit less reflective screens may be another reasons why people still use the software. And the pressure - it’s like using a mini tablet. I already did few paintings in this app, using my DSiXL, you can view them here if you are interested.
Homebrew Colors! isn’t supported by its creators now. They are focused on 3DS version and on the community. The only way to launch Colors! on your NDS/DSi is use one of those weird cards (it’s called R4i or something like that). You need additional SD card to store your data.
Classic NDS has touchscreen that is pressure sensitive, I found that information quite time ago. I’m not certain about DSLite but I know for sure that since DSi, the touchscreen doesn’t ‘feel’ the pressure anymore.

It’s actualy pretty cheap so I don’t see any reason to not buying it. You can take it everywhere with you and draw (but not outside). It’s nice to do small studies or to waste time in trams/buses/on boring lectures. The only downsites I can think of are 3DS’ poor battery life and how little you can see in a sunny day. Aaaand maybe low resolution of the file, but I don’t mind that. Remember: tools don’t make the artist.
