Do you consider yourself to be kind of a frustrated artist? Are you one of those people who -- when you're confronted with a blank page -- doesn't automatically quake with fear? But -- rather -- just picks up a pen, pencil or stylus and begins creating.

If so, then you may be interested in learning about this new FREE IOS/Android app. Which then allows you to be the artist and design your own Virtual Vinylmation figure online using a wide variety of colors, accessories and decals.
Users start with a blank Mickey or Minnie-shaped figure, decorate it, then add it to their personal collection. The Virtual Vinylmations can also be exported to the user's personal camera roll, according to Disney Interactive.
I have a Windows Phone, so I can't play it on my phone. but I did download my Virtual Vinylmation to an Android device and played with it there. Loading was a little laggy, and I really wish there was an "undo" button as I tend to change my mind a lot (read: "oops") about design choices.What I'd also like to see is maybe a Vinylmation village online, something like VMK. A place where people's Virtual Vinylmations could live, work and play, like in "Vinylmation: A Love Story"
It would also be cool if you could order your creation as a 3D printed figure. I'm hopeful that we'll see that kind of thing in the future.It gets better: If you create a masterpiece that you want to share with the world, tweet an image of it to @DisneyInteract using #BlankandBow and you could be featured on the Disney Interactive Blog ) PLUS win a "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" prize pack!
FYI: "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" -- the film which allegedly inspired these design-your-own Virtual Vinylmations is now available for FREE downloading over on Google Play. So why not go take a look at that and then see what sort of Virtual Vinylmation you're inspired to create?
