Shield Decoration

We currently have lots of snow and it turns out this has been very good for my application, as I have found myself disregarding other day to day tasks in favour of staying in and working hard on my application. This increased productivity has come in the form of adding interaction to a previously static piece of content within my application.

Within the Viking weapons section I explain how Vikings would sometimes paint or decorate their shields, so I decided to give the user the ability to decorate a shield by digitally finger painting their own designs onto the shield on screen.  This is not a brand new radical idea, as many educational books in the past have had section that children can colour in, this is just a simple interactive element that reinforces the textual information interactively, by digitally recreating the colouring in element found in many traditional media publications and I hope the users will enjoy this extra bit of interactive fun.
