Looks great, I suggest you add some smoothing will make drawings better. What is the paint application is if freeware or free & open source?

Cheers

The program is called Kidpix, it's more of an old legacy program still widely used at the elementary level here in the states.  It costs about $25.00 USD now but when it came out at the turn of century it was about $200. I think the last update was 2003. That's actually the marker option (pencil, crayon, chalk, marker)  so it's supposed to look and act that way. The program itself is still pretty awesome and kids love it.  Lots of cool visual and sound effects.  I use it almost every week with some grade level.

I know the tracking utilization looked horrible but it really was acting fine.
