    Paint -By -Numbers and Art

    Post by bribling on Fri Mar 23, 2012 3:24 pm

    I have been purchasing Paint-By-Number sets for many years from "Segmation". Segmation is a company that has developed an interesting Paint-By-Number system. I discovered it many years ago when looking for Photoshop plugins. At that time there was a plugin called "Segmation" that turned photos into interesting segments of bright colors. Photoshop and other programs have similar options but none are as fun as this. I never could afford the plugin but have demo'd it more than once.

    In the past few years, Segmation has developed "Seg-Play" which is a Paint-By-Number program based on their original Segmation plugin. "Seg-Play" is available for PC and Mobile. Each month two new paint sets are offered. The first set is usually Old Masters and the second set is either photos or cartoons. Difficulty ranges widely from "Easy" to very complicated. I especially enjoy "painting" the Old Masters and own many sets. I also like the photos. The Cartoons are great for children but I also own several cartoon sets.

    There are several option in Seg-Play and you can paint with a timer if you want a challenge. Each image has a colorful pallette of paints to choose from. You can opt to use the standard color numbering or you can turn that off and paint any way you like. You can change the color of the numbers and the font. You can zoom in. You can paint each color as it comes or you can even paint all of each color one-by-one.

    I call this "Color Therapy". It makes me feel better when I get sad and if I am in pain, I don't feel a thing while I am "painting". Admittedly there is little challenge here and almost no creativity (unless you turn the numbers off) but this program (game?) has given me many hours of enjoyment for more than 10 years. The Photoshop plugin is not being sold at the Segmation site and has not been updated in years but may still be purchased on the WEB. Some Game Portals offer Seg-Play PC or Mobile and/or the paint sets in their catalogs. Segmation can also be found at Facebook.

    Ah Bribling Big smile  She was a good friend, whom I met whilst playing FaunaSphere.  After FS shut down, she went to Glitch, where I joined her a year later.  Sadly, I have not heard from her since Glitch shut down in March of 2012.  She used to post on the forums at Big Fish, but they shut that down, too... Sweat drop

    Thanks for the tip, I really enjoy this kind of games. They really help clear my mind of sadness and bad thoughts.
    Other games that have similar effects on me are Color Cross and Animal Color Cross, along with the Fantasy Mosaics series (from the 5th installment).
    Also there's a game that I'd like to hightlight, I think it didn't get much attention but I think it's awesome, it's called The Hunt For Red Panda.
    In this game you have to clear famous paintings deleting the objects that don't belong to them. Overall the game could use some improvement but it's still very enjoyable and relaxing IMHO.

    Lol :D
    Now they have released a new game of the Fantasy Mosaics series (14th), which now features four colours instead of three. Very nice!
    I've also seen around some similar games called nonograms, but I gave them a try and I find them too difficult for myself. But maybe someone else can like them...
