Introducing ArtStroke

Social-880x440-1 by marioluevanosIntroducing ArtStroke from deviantart: Track your strokes. Stay inspired.

Home to over 38 million artists globally, DeviantArt is proud to host a community of like-minded creatives inspiring each other to be the best they can be. The very act of uploading each masterpiece broadcasts both the artist's stunning vision and the years of accumulated artistic skill. Such talent doesn't come easily. The path to improving one's craft is practice, practice, practice. In a world where technological advancements are shaping the landscape of our everyday lives, we knew there had to be a way to gamify artistic discipline and satisfy our every creative itch.

Well, now there is.

ArtStroke is a new device that encourages daily creativity by recording every flick of your wrist. Just strap it on and grab the tool you're most passionate about. ArtStroke’s built-in precision engine detects that you're about to get those creative juices flowing and begins counting your daily strokes for analysis via the companion app, available for iOS and Android. Brushstrokes, pen strokes, stylus strokes — our cutting-edge technology will record and report your progress every step of the way.

You should not draw from the wrist, it is better to draw from the shoulder. DeviantArt should know this. They may have suffered from an Art Stroke when they came up with this one.

Good effort though. The evasive Buy Now button was admittedly a stroke of genius.

This really doesn't make any sense. There are lots of artists who are trying to economize their brushstrokes and that doesn't mean they don't practice. And I agree with the comment below, let's get faster getting a carpel tunnel!

Oh wait, it is a joke x)

Just grab your nearest Apple Watch and shatter the screen! Then just copy, paste and print out the ArtStroke screen and tape it on. :giggle:

They're not available right now. Just like how Pokemon Go keeps crashing every 5 minutes.

This sounds amazing. If I had the money, and a smartphone, I would definitely want to go for it. Small chance I wouldn't, 'cause with my life, the money could be put towards a lot of other things that I need, rather than really want. Like medicine. Or new glasses. Or doctor's bills. Travel expenses for those doctors visits. Because I'm <18yo, on ACCCHS, but still have to pay for a lot of things. I can only get one new pair of glasses a year and have insurance pay for it. After that I'm on my own, so to speak. The way my eyes are going, I should really be getting 2 new pairs a year. One in spring/summer and one in fall/winter, respectively, because I get a new pair and I can see clearly for around 25 feet (TOTAL guesstimate). 4 months later, I can only see clearly for 10-15 feet, I put my computer screen a little over a foot in front of me, and look at it without my glasses, and my font on standard size, and I can barely make out what it says without squinting. Squinting makes it a little better, but not much. I have to squint just to see what my alarm clock says when I'm laying in bed, on the edge, just over a foot away. And the 'font' on it is about the size of 3/4 of a playing card. Anyways, rambling off topic, so lets get back on topic. I could put the money to much better use, but this sounds amazing! :thumbsup::D

Was curious about what everyone was saying about the buy now button. Now I understand. X3 Lol, just lol. X3
