I would love to have a BASIC COLOR PALLET. Maybe just simple colors such as black, blue, green, blank, and maybe a few picks of your own. Love the system but I also would like to have something to either PAN AROUND or to create a smaller or LARGER GRID space.This would help a lot when trying to round off edges if I can make a larger space worth of drawings. SAVING might also be a nice feature... maybe give us a link that would link back to our drawing or just a single online save would be nice. I think it is a great simple system for new or experienced graphic artists and I hope to see this program take off. For now keep up those pixels. -Zan
