So as most of you know I am using Pokémon art academy for a while now to help me learn to draw better, and to learn new tricks and all and you see the result ^^ .
Now because i have first hand experience with this game/art program , here are my 2 cents on the matter: "should you get it or not?".

so what is Pokémon art academy? : 
Pokémon art academy is a program to teach you how to draw pokemon ,but not only that, it also teaches you several methods to draw in a comic style, to a painted style.

It gives step by step instructions, going easy in the beginning to letting you figure it out yourself in the end game.
Having a bunch of tools in your arsenal , which get expanded over time you learn how to use each and every one of them to the best of your ability's.

You also get a partner artist: A girl if you say you are a man, and visa versa if you say you are a women.
He/she will draw bad, at least in the beginning, but he/she'll evolve with you as you progress trough the lessons and get better yourself, but he/she'll always be worse then you in a way , As his/her style is really abstract.
While he/she may not color within the lines so to say you will envy his/her creativity , because his/her style is unique in a lot of ways. 

There is also the professor who gives you instructions with every lesson, his art always looks amazing, and it is hard to do exactly as he does, he seems to have the possibility to put less pressure on his pen, probably of the art being made in a outside program, Not that that is a stumble block but it is kinda annoying seeing how his piece looks , while yours will look slightly off in a way.
Overall he is rather helpful though showing you a small video of what you have to trough the main course(but not in the mini lessons , later more about that)

Now the lessons themselves are split in 2 main components: 
    -The main cource
    -Mini lessons
    -The exams
    -Quick sketch
    -Freedraw


the main course will be where you learn new tricks to draw better, and where you get new tools,Here you are basically following a set of instructions.
They help a lot on getting you to learn new stuff, from adding shadows to using a airbrush to add detail and a soft glow

The mini lessons are the main meat of the game if you ask me,here you are set free, kinda, syou still hae to do step by step, but here you have to do it all by yourself, no preview on what to do, only your tools will have a grey backgrounds to say, use this for the best result, but in the end you don't have to use them

The exams are the same as the mini lessons, but the professor will guide you trough, not with previews but just words and a picture showing how it is supposed to look
Completing these will give you a higher rank, and access to new lessons 

Quick sketch i s like homework, you are given a task you need to complete with only the tools you got

And last freedraw: your playground to draw and test what you want, you select a reference picture and off you go, you unlock more reference pictures trough completing lessons


Now when drawing there is a cheat (at least I find it kinda cheaty) you have the option to put up a overlay showing the outline of the picture you are trying to make, this will help a lot, as the small screen makes it kinda hard to guess proportions.
you can also zoom in and out, and over all the drawing portion is like a mini photoshop , it is simpler and lighter, but works actually really great, which i didn't really expect from a handheld game.

The art layout is also uses a 2 layered structure , you have the lineout pen, which always comes on the top, and the coloring methods which come on the bottom, own which it's own eraser  

The best part for me is the album where you see a chronological ordered view of all the arts you drew, on cute pokémon cards, Here is also where you can export your art onto your DS card to transport it to your computer
When you do transfer, note that it will be watermarked!

there is also a sharing mode over the miiverse but my 3DS isn't connected to the internet at the time of writing so i can't say for sure what that is like.

Pros:
-funny dialog with your rival/companion 
-Great tools, work surprisingly well 
-Lots of reference pictures to be unlocked (over 200)
-Lots of tools (from pencils to airbrushes) 
-possibility to share your work and watch what others drew
-Freepaint is like a portable mini photoshop
-Easy redo and undo, just press L and R 
-Can add backgrounds when you are done, you can select to add them or leave them

Cons:
-Music: while it is catchy, it loops , and that is especially annoying while drawing for 3 hours on a piece
-Only a 2 layered structure , it is way to easy to erase colors you didn't want to erase
-Pen is to thick at times, it is a limitation of the format, not of the game really
-Can be annoying to hold, again not a limitation of the game, but of the system

Now should you buy it?:
If you are a beginning artist , Definitely , maybe try art academy if you don't like Pokémon.
Are you a Pokémon fan, Go for it, it's tons of fun drawing your favorite characters.
If you are a great artist: Maybe, you probably know all the tricks learned here, in that case it is more about, do you love Pokémon enough to keep using the program or not.

So that is my small(?) review of Pokémon art academy
Hope you enjoyed the read ^^

For my request can someone draw a Serperior, Lucario, Zoroark, Caracosta, Volcarona and Garchomp(basically my whole team) with the male trainer from pokemon black/white 2 and Yancy in the middle, sort of like a group photo. And if its not too much I would like the setting to be in Nimbasa City's amusment park. Its suppose to represent one of the times me and Yancy hung out at Nimbasa City and how much fun Yancy, my team and I was having.

This is going to seem weird, but is there any way to make a hidden request? I want to be able to make a request without the general public knowing what the request is, as the final image will serve as a simple word puzzle where the viewer is challenged to determine what words the image represents, and going into too much detail in public would obviously defeat that purpose. (For example, a friend once made a picture of "The Original One" holding a small plate with a teacup on it, representing a certain pair of 6-letter anagrams. Said picture seems to be removed from dA. . . >.>)

The puzzle described above is called a "flat" in the National Puzzlers' League, and can involve any of a number of different ways to manipulate letters, and not just anagrams. There are lots of interesting potential bases for a Pokémon flat. . . :)
