Tonight I got out my pen and tablet and using Illustrator and my pencil tool I made some swirls. I've always wanted to try a Christmas tree. This one is "so so".
BTW that vector website URL that Cindy gave us has tons of Christmas clusters to use to help us make our own.
Thanks, Joanne. I always wanted to be able to do this and I never could until Illustrator. There is a setting that lets you draw without so many nodes so you can get a smooth line. The less nodes to adjust, the smoother you can get. I'll admit Illustrator is my most pricey program but it's worth it.
I do better with the PI drawing thing, and that is pretty bad when I try swirls, PS no way. I had a tablet and there was no way on earth anything I did with it was good. I did better with a mouse!! LOL I tried, I practiced, it did not work well. And then a cat puked on the tablet and the keyboard rendering both useless. I bought a new keyboard but not another tablet, since I was a failure at using it.
Well I learned that once you know PS it's easy to learn Illustrator. They're sorta alike and you can transfer images back and forth. My tablet is a bamboo but one of the less expensive ones. It takes alot of practice.
