Geeting better at imaging

Post by Stephen J F Plowman » Fri May 16, 2008 8:29 am

I am always in awe of those who can produce achievements with pen & paint. I am very dependent upon the manipulation of clipart. However, with a new version of Serif DrawPlus it is making things much easier for me.

The areas I'm not too happy about are the anchors - I don't like the slant - and the crook - it needs to be turned so that the curve is outwards. I am quietly satisfied that I managed to create the chief enarched nebuly and the martlets rising. (The solution to the former came about from some doodles in a rather boring meeting. :oops: )
Yours aye
