How do I search for an alternate and more specific meaning of "animate drawing?"

Looking for software that I've seen before that makes the action of drawing a single image animated. Call it the etch-a-sketch effect. Simple example: http://www.edwardporter.com/flash/Comp1.mov

Most searches use the meaning of taking a completed single image and combining it with other images to make it come alive. I don't want a traditional image that moves. I just want to animate the drawing of the image.

My question is this:
- What search terms can help me find this software?
OR
- Does anyone know of the software I'm talking about?

As your example shows a very simple example.. Hope you are looking for a simple software like (bixelangelo) .. here's a sample (http://www.outerspace-software.com/bixelangelo.html)

If this is what you're looking for, searching for (animated sketches)  should come up with some extra software.

hope this helps :)

Know of anything that produces an effect like http://www.miniclip.com/sketch-star/en/create/ but simulates it on an already completed sketch?
