DrawQuest (http://appshopper.com/entertainment/drawquest-free-daily-drawing-challenges), a new iPad app from 4chan founder Chris Poole (also known as moot), aims to combine art creation with social interaction via daily drawing challenges.

Building on his experience with Canvas (http://canv.as), an HTML 5 application designed to allow users to share and remix media, Poole designed the app to help people express themselves through art.DrawQuest is about re*learning to express yourself creatively and sticking with it. Everything about DrawQuest -- from our simple drawing tools to the ability to star and play back drawings -- was designed to foster a community of budding creators.http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2013/02/drawquest.jpg
DrawQuest is billed as a free drawing community designed exclusively for the iPad. The app, which requires users to sign up, presents a drawing challenge each day. With included tools, users are asked to complete quests, which include enhancing a base image.

A new image template is added daily, and after finishing a challenge, users can view the work of other artists, watching playback, sharing an image on social networks, and starring favorites. Drawings are entirely public - there's no option for private sharing.

In an interview with The Verge (http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/8/3942110/drawquest-for-ipad-chris-poole-moot), Poole reveals that his inspiration for DrawQuest came from Canvas users who were too intimidated to use the image creation tools. With prompts, Poole believes he can inspire creativity with constraints."One of the scariest things you can place in front of an adult is a blank sheet of paper and a pencil," Poole says. "It's like you're pointing a gun at them. 'Sorry, I don't draw, I don't write, I don't origami,' they'll say."DrawQuest is a free app and can be downloaded from the App Store (http://appshopper.com/entertainment/drawquest-free-daily-drawing-challenges).

I don't see this becoming as trendy as 4chan. There are quite a few interesting people over there.

I hear the DrawQuest /b/ section is horrific.

I'll buck the trend: I think it sounds different from what's been done, quite possibly fun, and certainly worth the experiment.

It's 100% cuter when animated. DrawQuest should look into this.

It's something for free, can't complain.

Except if that something is Flash, then I can complain.

Bahahaha, alright, here's something just for you, internet person. I might've gone a bit overboard:

In other news, I wrote a 4chan image (and /f/) downloader. I have this massive archive of 4chan images that would even scare Chuck Norris.

Seems like some people have lost the ability to think different.
How bad can something that might inspire creativity be?
Much more innovative than buggering up an iGizmo fron 64GB to 128GB.
Maybe someday there'll be an app to inspire creative responses to unusual apps.

This is art. When you hear a buzzer, stare at the art. MEEEEEEP.

This should be the new trollface.

Not at all.

They have total different styles of use/play.

Draw something is pictionary while this is more like a public art class. More magic piano than anything

There is no 4chan. Or, if there is, it is something that you should look for with your parents and discuss it with them.

Now move along. :mad:
