Graffiti

Postby Ren » Tue Jul 31, 2007 2:32 am UTC

Okay, so on Facebook there is a Graffiti application, where you can draw things on people's profiles. Some people are reeeeeeeally good at it, even without a tablet.
For example, this was drawn using a tablet:
Image

This was drawn using a mouse:
Image

Isn't that *ridiculous*?

Anyway, after seeing those (and the many, many others like them) I thought, "Hey, I should learn to use Graffiti. It would be cool."

So here are some of mine, done with a mouse.

For me:

Does anyone else like playing with Graffiti?
What should I try to draw next?

Very risky. Does one read from color to color or follow the typical left-right-down rule? Either way, the resulting sentences have completely unique and unexpected meanings.

Very well-done.

Now, your next challenge is to render the frog toy, which is me, that's sitting on the head of a bearded man in my avatar. :-)

Hey, you should check out http://artpad.art.com/artpad/painter/.
You basically draw on it and you can replay the painting stroke by stroke.

Here's a quick one I did, to showcase the extent of my artistic abilities (view on fast) -
I call it an introverted look and reflection of one's identity in a world defined by materialistic icons meant to arrest intelligence and subvert cognitive associations.

We had a nice tablet, but we sold it before i got into photoshop... now i really want one, drawing with a mouse is a pain, unless on uber slow speed.

Very nice drawings ren, surely made of win.

I got around to do one for a friend, but my mouse is kinda on a curved surface atm, so i can draw straight lines lol...
maybe i shoulda moved it before i started, but what ever.

@Neeks: how the hell you manage to get your lines so straight? Nice mouse/surface and some steady hand control?

Its this neat little trick i found.

lets say you want to make a line from one corner to the other, you would click from the start point and hold down the left button, and then right click. You can release the left mouse after this.

Then, move to the other spot that you want the line to end at, and left click (anywhere outside the right-click menu of course.)

THe only problem is, it creates another click after this, so if your using transparency less than 100%, it'll create another circle. Just ctrl z it, and it should be fine.

I tried to keep steady mouse control, but i dont have a mouse pad, and havent used one in years. So the area where my mouse is, the wood is all gross and bumpy, so it'll randomly go in some other direction.

Awesome. Though as I've pointed out in graffiti, I'm still waiting for you to do my frog-ball-thing. :-)

Edit: thanks, it's very cool.
