Hey! We highly recommend you launch this experiment in Google Chrome. It may run slower, or not at all, in other browsers.
The idea is simple. A sketchpad where everyone can draw at the same time. The result is something much more interesting than I expected.
node.js, websockets, canvas
"Here's the world-famous artist in his multiuser sketchpad."
I come back to check on this every now and then, hoping it will work one of these days.It's just not as fun on your own. I miss drawing over penises with unicorns and such. Good times.
I don't know who you are, I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills... skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you bring this back now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will fart in your eyes.
Bring this back. That's an order.
Why are did they end this?? :(
Please bring this back! I love the idea, I had so much fun collaborating in good drawings and pictures and fending off the dick-doodling trolls was an invigorating challenge! I'll seriously give you like five bucks Mr. Doob, whoever you are, to either sell this idea to somebody who'll set it up or fix it yourself. Pretty please?
I agree with Joe. Mr. Doob, if you're out there, some where, pretty please?
I really, really want this to come back, it was a wonderful challenge to overcome the sketchtrolls who drew dicks all over the great art everyone else was collaborating in. Please please bring it back online, so many are willing to actually draw fun and interesting things! I check this app every month or so and I'm so disappointed to see that it's still dead... bring it back to life!
I too will not apologize for the dick drawings, we are now famous for this and propose a new website dedicated to the sole drawing of veinous dicks. As stated; we committed these atrocities as professional adults and are in no way immature, we simply hate seeing good art(unless it's dicks). I do miss this though...
I and a few of my friends are responsible for the Dick drawings. We are college educated professional. I am proud of our Dick Drawing accomplishments. If we drew a Dick on your sketch, we do not apologize. Hope we can join you again soon!
miss this so much
Is it ever coming back? :(
It works in all browsers.Is It True?
Loved this experiment and bummed that it's offline, but it's just supposed to be an experiment right? Looks like it was successful, so now how do we get this back up and running permanently?!?
Why!!?? It hasn't been working for ages...... :( Always disconnected, it's not as much fun without the whole "multiuser" part....
I miss it too. There's another pretty fun one here www.chromeexperiments.com/detail/paint-with-me/
why does it always state that I'm disconnected? :(
great art man
(( fu__ck disconnected ...
okay well i can chat to myself and draw by myself but see noone else with me ://
yeahhhhhhhhh same......... disconnected. wtf!>!>!!>@!??#!@#>@!?#
uhm......... everytime i try to go on...... it says disconnected.. i press reload.. disconnected.. running it in chrome.. wtf...? help me...... alsoooooo im obviously not disconnected from internet.........
Amazing :) Really enjoyed this; everyone is so talented. I could spend hours there but I've got to try all the other experiments!!
I would like to use this website to send funny messages to my friends and join the fun.
Ok, so I was drawing away on it yesterday having some fun drawing awesome pics with some randomers (not penises) just normal stuff, when all of a sudden I was disconnected. Now all I have is a blank page, which I can still draw on but i'm on my own, and in the chat section there is a "disconnected :/" error...anyone have any idea whats wrong?
Server seems to be down... sorry about that. Fixed!
Still down. :(
You should try and include a "private match" option. Where you can kinda invite people to draw with you like your friends etc. Something along those lines.
Why do some people find it so fun to swear and draw rude stuff on here????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm on Chrome but the connection doesn't work ! What a shame
i don't see anyone else and it says Disconnected...it worked fine yesterday...how can i fix that?
You could not curse out other people and draw penises
Very, Very Cool!! I think it's great
This isnt working on my mac! I can draw, but no one is ever on, and I only get a small window of loaded space, and the rest doesnt load!
I wish you could erase larger and clearer.
It's cool when people add on to your stuff and it's like they knew what you were about to draw and they drew it.
This is a really great experiment... but some people always ruins the idea. This is a really great tool if people that are with you are cool and don't draw meaningless things over yours. Otherwise, if people really draw and talk it's nice to see the talent of others and simply talk with them while drawing ! Should include a sort of kicking function if someone always draw over other people stuff though
this is GREAT! i would love this as a brain storming software between an art group over a private network. Over the net, things get kinda cluttered, and some people purposely scribble over your doodles, but over all this is just awesome!
This needs a way to report spammers and other assorted people who ruin the idea.
Connection is lost after 25 seconds, tried 5 times always the same.
I'm going to be trying to build off of this idea for an iOS and possibly Android webapp.
This is by far my favorite experiment. Thank you for introducing me to WebSockets.
Who is "Disconnected"
Very very cool, but its a bit pity if someone draw on the good pictures or if someone is mean to the others :___:
really cool but the internet part doesn't work. also it comes out really light and you have to go over it too many times. you should be able to adjust softness of the graphite.
its very nice
I love when I start drawing something, someone else joins in, and before long we have an army drawing together! It's the Interwebs and their best, methinks!
I wish I could have this on my site it'd be wonderful to have a more private version to use with just friends rather than people who draw a penis everywhere~
Please increment Brush Size!
I LOVE this, :) to bad it fails when i want to save :(
had the same sic experience ! ? what next ? where to go ?
I enjoyed the collapse of the theory of evolution one, it's amazing how ignorant you can be if you're angry enough.
OK this was working yesterday... now I can open it and draw but theres no one else around! Is there a problem or have ppl just lost interest?
how do you do it......my page just goes blank.....and then i click and half of it goes grey
its a good idea. i like it very much. but its a problem. i don't know why, but it don't works allmost time
haha! I laugh at your religion
just a bunch of 10 year olds drawing penises...
I felt in love with it - great
it would be better if people didnt insist on ruining your drawings!! :@
I KNOW RIGHT?! :))
hahahaha, awesome experiment :D
One thing I still haven't figured out how yo do is how to talk. Could someone explain how, please?
under where it says change type something then hit enter
Why does it say "disconnected :("?
GREAT! But we should be able to kick out certain people who ruins the work of everyone else.
its awesome i love it
can u make it a non- resetting, infinite space
also some drawing tools like pen size
just imagine how much worse the penises would be!
they would certainly have room to be much bigger.
i want regest in google please
A good update is to block certain users from the expirence.
I agree completely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is fantastic and a whole lot of fun
ok is fantastic, wonderfull!!!! tanks !!!!
how often does the canvas reset?
Although the experiment IS fun.... pretty cool.... If you don't have other people ruining it for you
Umm... maybe you should ban certain words or prevent people using other peoples names...
This should be ported to the ds.
Yes, it should be ported to the DS. Imagine how awesome it would be if we used a touch screen to draw.
What if it was on the IPAD?!?!?!
i think u cn access it that way.
couldnt you just use a graphic tablet? unless you want it portable. Im gonna see if it works :)
Great project, but, like always, the users ruin it.
ohh acabo de descubrirlo... alguien habla español????
Great experiment. Only downfall -- there are way too many people who are only interested in drawing dicks. Ridiculous.
i can`t open
How do you remove the colons in the shoutbox?
This is completely and Totally awesome, but I agree with a comment above you should make it so that people can't steal other peoples names because it has happend to me and caused some trouble. But besides that fabulas experiment.
how do i talk on it?
This is great! I think it would be awesome if you could combine it with your Harmony experiment....
Now that would be good....
Thank you for this project! I really like it! :)
But I think you need to change something in the chat... you need to make it so people cant steal other people's names, because that has caused some trouble.
Other than that, I think it's brilliant!!
HOW DO YOU SCOLLLLL?
[SPACE] + Drag
I like the results of this better than flockdraw. The light and varied lines force people to take their time.
this is justttt like flockdraw! except on flockdraw theres more options - more colors, brushes, etc
doing the drawing and watching the other drawing is as much fun as reading what people write! great app
beruk mak ye
This is great. I love it. Anybody who's an art person I think would like this. Also, it's not rubbish. The people who draw just male organs, I don't think can draw so they just do that sadly.
How do you scroll?
I'm confined to one view of the whole at one time
And I can't leave it!
Hold down the space bar and [click+drag] to where you want to go.
Didn't @rem make this as well? or even, earlier?
this is botted its a bit sad :(
It always says "disconnected :("... I tried id a couple of times today and yesterday.
Really interesting. Makes for a great piece of postmodern art if you catch it at the right time. Then you can just call those sophomoric dirty drawings next to the great artwork a statement about the mix of stupidity and genius that is the Internet ;-)
i am so sorry.. i did not mean to post it four times. i just clicked it a few cuz i thought it wasnt loading. sorry
this is great, but every time i try to draw something ( i draw people mostly) some troll draws a ~male reproductive orgin~ in the mouth of my drawings. great game but this is just getting annoying.
i do not like the brush i want it to be more thick.
connection is not defined.. no websocket in firefox T_T
this is great.
make more multi user experiments :)
They cost too much money :(
yeah it would be great if you made more multiuser experiments, but it's to bad that they cost to much money :( great experiment though
Awesome idea! Keep up the great work :)
I hate this... this... junk!!!!!
Boring. All you can do is scribble and watch other people scribble.
Wow... Mr. Doob you've done it again. If this had more tools it would make a great and innovative way to do social networking!
Love the simple idea and how it's entirely brought to life by its users. Great concept and excellent execution as always!
Utterly awesome. Simply a wonderful idea. Kudos Mr.doob.
What do you mean? Its rubbish!!! I liked google gravity though!!!!!!
this is a great experiment!!
this is so cool!
And yet the connection doesn't seem to work in my browser...?
