Nintendo DS – Colors!

Woot!! I finally got myself an R4 Homebrew cart for my Nintendo DS after a pal convinced me to get one (thanks Eric! ūüėČ ). In fact, the only reason¬†I got one at all was¬†purely so I could try Colors!. It’s a really, really¬†nice homebrew paint package for the¬†DS, and after using it for only 15 minutes¬†I can see it may even persuade me to do a bit more sketching for fun… And best of all, it’s totally free!!! The image above is my first attempt at using it.. You can check out the Colors! software here if you’re interested:

If you’re looking for a good place to buy a DS R4 Homebrew cart (in the UK), here’s where I got mine:

They seem pretty good, they delivered it within 3 days for under ¬£25 and they don’t even require you to create an account..! It comes with the R4 cart and a USB stick, but you will need to buy a separate microSD card to store data on. eBay have them for under ¬£3 for 1GB..!!

Expect to see a lot more Colors! artwork on here in the future! ūüėČ
