Suitable for all ages, Disney's Magic Artist Cartoon Studio is a creativity tool that allows children to draw, color, animate and print images featuring a cast of beloved Disney characters. The title comprises three separate areas — Desktop, Gallery and Lesson Area — that present users with various functions, each relating to a unique creative aspect of the product. From the Desktop, children can create images from scratch (using either the mouse or the supported SketchBoard Studio stylus); utilize pre-rendered backgrounds and stamps to quickly create scenes starring Mickey and such friends as Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto; or color the scenes manually using a variety of coloring tools.
The Gallery area of the software package is where children's creations are saved. This is also where multimedia slideshows can be created, allowing users to augment scenes with music and special effects or even import additional images into the scene. Finished works can then be exported for use in other software programs or emailed to friends. The Lesson Area provides users with detailed drawing instructions as well as tips on how to best utilize the animation techniques presented in the Gallery workspace. ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
