Eikou Drawing Pad
Aside from using coloured pens and pencils, I also use this drawing pad for my drawings. I would like to share this great software with you.
Eikou Drawing Pad was developed primarily for babies under five years old, to learn drawing and coloring on the computer screen. It is fun for children to experience different shapes and colors.
If you install the Big Mouth software, it already includes the Eikou Drawing Pad. Alternatively, if you don't like the robot chatter box, you can download this quiet program as a separate software.
