Creating line art - swooshes - using Parametric Curves.

Postby ragstian » Mon Oct 22, 2012 12:01 pm

Hi.

Want to make "Line Art" like this one? Image

Made a simple guide: Image

Comments are welcome in order to improve the guide and my "style".

Got more examples if anyone wants them.

are you kidding?!!! Of course we want more examples! Don't hold back! The tutorial is great, i'm sure it will inspire people to have a go at the parametric curves extension.

Hi.

Druban - great site in the link. Got the equations for the butterfly curve and also for the harmonograph - will try to get something similar Inkscape.
Stay tuned!

Well, I'd love to see what you're talking about, but I'm getting a blank page at Dropbox.

PS - using Firefox. I see that it's a PDF, but I know Ff has opened PDFs before. Let me break out my IE, and see if I have better luck....

Edit
No luck. Am I supposed to click Download to see it? Oh ok, there it is :D

Edit #2
Oh wow! That certainly will be fun Image Those flat ones in the beginning look a lot like some of the spirograms I've made (with Spirograph extension). But those that are more 3d are really awesome! I've already saved the PDF and can't wait to see that in a stable release. Thanks :D

Hi.

Updated the guide.

brynn: Don't know why you can't see the content of the file from Dropbox - works fine on my machines - PC and Mac.
Might be an idea to update your Acrobat reader to latest version?

I do have the current version. I finally realized that I have to click Download to see the PDF. For some reason, when I try to see an image hosted at Dropbox, the page is often blank. For PDFs, I can click Download, and get it to open. But I haven't solved the problem for PNGs yet.

Also, I'm not sure why I thought Parametric curves would be available in a future version. It's there now, and I can't wait to try it!

Thanks again :D

Hi brynn

Figured out the PDF file link problem. Dropbox gives you a link with www in the address - the www has to be changed to dl - in addition to "force" download I have to append ?dl=1 to the end of the link.

Using this scheme I can get the images to load using the [img]--[/img] tag but they load at full resolution, no thumbnail preview - trying to find solution.
