#81 - Pen and Paper

Simple, but it gets the theme across, right? ;)

EDIT: Fixed some depth issues. And set the default quality to "medium" for better performance.

The trickiest part has actually proven to be getting smooth curves. A fellow DA-er suggested a method, but I've been so busy with school I haven't had time for any non-essential Flash work (ie. stuff that doesn't have a client waiting for it).
But that will soon be over, and I'll fix this puppy up!! lol
After working with Flash for as long as I have, it wasn't that hard to make. In fact, I finished version 1 in less than a day, according to my records. But I did devote much of my time to:

A) Transparencies and levels
-keeping the pen and shadow on top of the lines
-getting the right shadow effect
-(in v2) proper transparency of the blue pen (you can see the lines through it)

B) Pen movement
-semi-realistic pen tilt when moving left/right/up/down, or any combination.
-proper shadow angle to go along with pen movement

C) (in v2) Undo capability

I hope to make version 2.1 better with smoother lines and curves, but also the ability to save, load, and possibly share drawings. I see lots of good ol' fashion wasted time waiting to be had with this project, and I can't wait!!! lol (Note the non-sarcasm here)



And thanks for the fav on version 2. =)
