Gallery: Academy of Arts Masters Produce Award-Winning Drawings Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

A lasting legacy of the DS, 3DS, and Wii U in the future may well be the use of their resistive touchscreens for awesome drawing applications. the Academy of Arts The franchise is at the forefront of this, giving players the tools to express themselves through art or take tentative first steps in learning. It is refreshing Creative way to spend time on our Nintendo consoles.

The Art Academy Events community on Miiverse is used to run regular contests in which Wii U owners are invited to submit themed artwork using Art Academy: SketchPad. The results are often impressive and the most recent contest was about Captain Toad: Treasure Trackerone of the cutest and most charming home console games.

Winners simply earn posterity, but we thought we’d share the latest batch to brighten our day. The winners range from being truly impressive to others getting full marks for their efforts, although the image of Toad smiling as he appears to be drowning in a stew is – for us – mildly alarming. Also, game director Shinya Hiratake’s Mii seems to be puckering his lips to kiss the winners of his category, which is a little weird.

Anyway, the full set of 20 winners is below. Enjoy!
