Testing some code changes to my site publishing workflow. But let’s make it at least a little interesting with a manual symmetry drawing I finished a little bit ago.

Skinny Lines and Flat Colors

I was going to make this a coloring thing but I accidentally did my own colors on the wrong layer. Too bad Infinite Painter doesn’t have infinite undo.

Lots of folks stuck at home.

Feel like coloring something? I decided to share the linework for this drawing.

Print it. Import it into your favorite coloring / sketch app. Whatever. Have fun!

And you don’t have to show me what you do with it, but I’d love it if you did!

Again with the manual symmetry

Again with the manual symmetry

I spent forty hours over the last month or so drawing this.

Couldn’t decide which aspect I liked best. Line work? Color? Values? So I went with all three.

On another note, I kinda want to study more about image formats. JPEG clearly has some issues with the red. PNG is unacceptably large thanks to all the detail work.

WelshPixie draws amazing mandala images. Inspired me to do something in Linea Sketch, a drawing app defined by its constraints. No symmetry tools. A focused approach to color palettes. Brushes limited to a couple pencils, a couple pens. Five layers, no more and no less. Stuff like that.

It does have circle and straight edge drawing tools, which I clearly took full advantage of.

The only feature I miss in Linea is custom canvas sizes. All drawings are exactly however many pixels your iPad has.
