🖼️ Everyone's favorite collaborative online painting game! 🖌️

We started a Discord Server! 💬

Feel free to join to share your work, your favorites, and talk with other players/artists! 🖌️

⭐ Deluxe Edition ⭐

To help pay for server costs we have introduced a Deluxe Edition that includes several special features: 9 exclusive colors! smaller brush sizes brush smoothing straight line tool canvas zoom studio room for viewing your paintings/liked paintings painting easel for saving draft paintings We really need your support to keep this game running so we hope you'll consider making this one time donation to unlock the latest features!

Your friend, a conceptual artist, has invited you to their latest exhibition.

You enter expecting to see their art adorning the walls, but to your surprise, the VISITORS are the ones drawing the art — they’re even drawing over each other’s work! It’s up to you to protect the exhibition from being covered in artwork that is, intentionally or otherwise, truly awful.

  • Explore a never-ending, ever-expanding gallery full of user-generated art — and snarky guests!
  • Add a new layer to art that needs a redo!
  • Draw new art to fill the exhibition!
  • Rate art to boost the good and hide the bad!
All of the art exhibited in the game is 100% created and remixed and rated LIVE by other players. Yes, we host all of this art and load it in dynamically. We hope that you will choose to fix the (inevitable) unacceptable art!

In addition to the main gallery there is also a portal to the "gallery of the week". Every week there will be a new gallery with a particular theme. The main gallery is pretty crowded so your art may have a better chance of standing out in the gallery of the week!

can u make a ios version :(

What do I do if I forgot my account password?

This is the single best thing I saw this year about art. Nice job. Now I want my own online art gallery…

Hi guys! Does deluxe let you see what edits people end up doing to your stuff? Main reason I would want it other than drafts

(1 edit) (+1)

press v for paint bom

i'm freeeeeeeeeee


i found this, lol

Is it possible to see the original painting before edits were made?

just click 

Yeah I'm an idiot sorry, I asked this question while in the editor and I didn't want to publish yet.

uhhhhhhhhhhhhh are you sure?

found something

used the paint gun a bit

(1 edit)
Not that I would ever do anything stupid, but if perchance I didn't realize I was logged out and spent a *mild* amount of time working on a piece only for it to be trapped in the un-owned purgatory, would there be any way to get it back into my possession? Looking for a friend.


how i get more colors for my canvas??

deluxe only. you have to pay ithink


I like this game :0



Step by step:

Walk a lot.

Find those things that look like sims things

Press g

Get gun

America them



Anybody else see this? I spent a good twenty minutes trying but I have no clue how to reach the top?? oml???

This is a really trash screenshot but it's the only one I got before I accidentally closed the game 

first press G for a paintgun and then shoot randomly to reveal a hidden parcour. its really hard i spend a good 30m to get up but unfortunatly i coulndt do it. (sorry for bad english)


LOVE THE GAME SMMMM look at ma drawings

I LOVVVVVE THIS GAME EVERYTHING ABOUT IT ITS JUST SO GOOD LIKE TAKE MY MONEY IM GETTING THE DELUX EDITION not only the concept but everything is so nice in this game it makes me feel comfy like im an artist and i dont remember drawing this much anytime with just a few colors +mouse sometimes i dont even draw i just walk around making everywhere colorful its really fun AND NOW I JUST FOUND IT IT HAS A DARK MODE?? MY GODD

i drew a bald person ...please give them hair they are cold :(


My morning routine:

Wake up

Check Different Strokes

Go to school

Ignore all my work and just play Different Strokes. (How am I not failing? I say it's probably different strokes)


A few Different Strokes of luck

me too i just do that

This is such a cute idea and I love all the creativity! I wish i could draw though :(


everyone can draw, it doesnt have to be good. The whole point is to see the art of amatuers, its cool!

SO FUN, unfortunally i no longer can upload? It might be a bug or if there has been a miss-click among admins. (my @ is Kairus)

nvm! I just didn't see that the upload button isnt always up

You have to have 10 strokes first

At any moment your masterpiece may become a Pikmin!

I can't tell if this is an insult or not

Huh, didn't even know you could get a game over,,, Welp, guess I won't be doing thatagain

Woa, how? I figured there is some lore after talking to the npc's, but i can't seem to get anywhere with it

There's like a weird diamond shaped thing floating around sometimes, looks pretty shootable doesn't it?

shoot it


Gosh darn beautiful game!!! It's fun! It's an amazing game if you feel like being creative but you also have artist's block!


This game is so cute and entertaining! I just wish there was a way to put a painting under your name after creating an account. I painted and went to make an account so save it, but I was unable to </3
