Red ochre

Flourish, swirls, spirals (new 6th Feb '17)

Recommended Posts

Updated version uploaded.

 

Ego Eram Reputo suggested changing the 'LineJoin' pen property to 'Round'. This solves the artifact problems with the outline! - many thanks E.E.R.:star:

I've also added the choice to fill the figure before (+ve) or after (-ve) outlining the shape, using the outline width slider.

Apologies to those that have already downloaded - please update, this version is better.;)

Cool, a new plugin from the master. Will most certainly experiment this weekend and post my result. Thanks Red :)

High praise indeed Sasha! Thank you.
I know there are many far more capable plugin writers here on the forum, so it is very flattering to be described as 'the master'.:)
... Or did you mean the Dr Who baddie?:lol:
Looking forward to seeing what you can create using it.

 

Thanks LionsDragon - drawing accurately using the mouse is always a challenge for me too.;)

I don't think the Doctor's personal pest can focus long enough to write code.

 

Ohh puh-leeze, I've seen your gallery. :) Of course, I can't draw swirls with pencil and paper either, so there's that.

A most appropriate plugin for swirling eyebrows and mustaches on my cartoon-like artworks :)

One trick that may work when drawing swirls (or lines in general) is fixing your sight on the finishing spot while you're drawing the line instead of trying to follow the whole trajectory of the line as you draw it. Perhaps the trick may also work when drawing with the mouse, though I've only tried it with pencil on paper :)

I like to see a mixture of hand drawn and computer assisted images - best of both worlds!

Great imageB) - thanks for posting it... invert and stretch the moustache and it could be Dali!:)

Not enough control over your wayward moustache?

Try new improved Flourish!

Glad you liked my piece, Red :) And also glad I'll now be able to come up with convex and concave facial hair :lol:

 

I used to sketch with pencils as a child —horrible sketches I think :P —but then I quit for too many years, which I now perceive as an unfortunate mistake. I won't quit anymore for as long as I can buy pencils and paper :P Combining mediums produces unique results and unique feelings of accomplishment, and sometimes it also produces seven rep points or so :lol:
