We've just launched the new Rock Bands DLC!

It's an awesome canvas, created in collaboration with Roadrunner Records.

To celebrate here's a snapshot of the new canvas that you can download in the app now:



What's more, if you can name all 10 bands we've numbered in this picture (the full picture features 50!) below, we'll enter you in a draw to win a $20 iTunes voucher!

Good luck, and check out the full (and FREE!) app here: www.tinyurl.com/swysapp2

I've already played quite a bit of SWYS on iPad, so the idea of getting an HD version is a nice one!

The HD version is 3x the resolution, so the canvases look AMAZING - you can even see the grain of the canvas boards they were painted on in some cases!

New canvas out today: Fantasy Movies!



This stunning bit of art is painted by Ryan Firchau, an ex-Rare (Goldeneye, Banjo Kazooie, Kinectimals) concept artist, and you can certainly see the classic Rare look in full force here. Here's a quick Touch Arcade-exclusive interview with Ryan for you:


SWYS: Hi Ryan! Ok, so first question - how did you find painting your first Say What You See canvas?

Ryan: The wide range of clues incorporated some subject matter I haven't tackled before so that was refreshing and fun. As a Concept Artist you tend to draw a lot of the same subject matter, so it makes a pleasant change to come out of your comfort zone. I think I probably under estimated the amount of work required to make the canvas look good.The biggest challenge came from a compositional aspect due predominantly to the large number of clues that needed to be incorporated and positioning them within the scene. But it was a great experience!

SWYS: Which puzzle on the canvas was your favourite to paint?

Ryan: Well, I spent the most time on the troll and dragon as they're really the focal point of the whole canvas. But the puzzle I enjoyed painting the most was definitely the one featuring Charlie Sheen - I hardly ever do caricatures so it was a real challenge, but I think I ended up, uh, 'Winning'!

SWYS: Finally, what are your favourite Fantasy Movies (That may or may not feature in the canvas!

Ryan: My all time favorite fantasy film has to be Labyrinth. I've watched that film more times then I can remember. Of course, I also love the Lord of the Rings trilogy - how could you not?
