[prMac.com] Singapore - Dotnamestudios, creator of the acclaimed Dinosaur Zoo app (Educational App of the Year 2011, 2012 and featured on Apple's 2013 "Together" commercial) now brings you more high-end CG dinosaur fun with their new release, Let's Paint Dinosaurs.
What's new about this app:
Paint your own dinosaurs that look like the real deal- even if they are pink. Let's Paint Dinosaurs uses museum-spec CG dinosaurs as a layered canvas. The color brushes paint to reveal a dinosaur of that color. If you enjoy painting dinosaurs in camouflage browns or pink with purple stripes the end result still looks convincingly, although possibly more colorful than most would expect - but then that seems to be part of the underlying message. This is an unknown realm of paleontology and a time of exploration. Once your dino is crafted in color it is time to dino-bomb! The background behind the dinosaur is your camera view so you can simply point and shoot to place your dinosaur in your photos. Holiday snaps will never be the same.
Prizes and future development:
Through July and August 2014, Let's Paint Dinosaurs is running a photo competition for the best dino-pics and you stand to win one of four full-size replica T. rex teeth. Fun photos and celebrity dino-bombs definitely get extra points! Dotnamestudios is already hard at work preparing more dinosaurs for the ever-hungry dino fan base. They also plan to introduce a scale feature in the near future, to adjust the size of your dinosaur on the camera view once you have finished painting it.
