The History of Drawing Games

One of the first things we learn to do as children is draw. It’s a fundamental part of our early development and can be incredibly relaxing and therapeutic. Drawing is something that has evolved with technology and online drawing games are keeping brains occupied across the world.

For many of us, our first experiences with computer gaming were with Microsoft Paint – a software program introduced in 1985 that gave people the opportunity to color and draw on their PC, offering the first experiences of digital doodling.

Today, touchscreen smart devices have made online drawing games more popular than ever. These games require clean and precise control. The sheer variety of games that can be created from simple core components is staggering, from Pictionary-style guessing games to more adventurous platforming games. Some games are as simple as using your fingers or a stylus pen to draw shapes and objects. Of course there are also games that give you a blank canvas and allow you to draw whatever you like. Whether you are an aspiring Van Gogh, a graphic designer or an idle doodler there will be a drawing game at GamePix that will bring your artistic side to life!

Drawing Allows You To Express Your Emotions.

Every child works in a different way. For some, talking is the way they express their emotions. For some it may be through play or by writing. For millions of children around the world a more visual form of learning is best.

Drawing is a powerful outlet for self-expression, allowing children (and adults) to communicate ideas and feelings they may not have been able to articulate verbally. Drawing online can unlock barriers to communication and allow people to engage in a natural way that would not be possible otherwise.

Drawing online is a calming and soothing activity for both children and adults. It is one of the first skills we learn, one of the first activities we love. Being able to spend time drawing is always going to put a smile on your face. It is much more than a fun activity though. It helps with your emotional state. It is relaxing and peaceful. The world is a chaotic, stressful and confusing place. We all need time to find a way to stay calm. A world where people are creating art is a happy world!

Why draw online when I can draw on paper?

Lots of reasons! Even people in the gaming industry don’t want a world where people will never draw on paper again.

However, there are multiple reasons why drawing online can be a better option than using paper. It saves mess and is more economic. Drawing online allows you to start over and over and offers you an almost infinite variety of choice.
