#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. =)

sorry for the late reply man, got busy with all these work crap.
whoah! i salute people like you! it just proves it that with hardwork and dedication, it is possible to conquer limitations..

what i like most about what you did is that:
> the pen movement is smooth and in realtime. (synchronizes well with the ink it creates)
> over-all its neat and very COOL!
i had lots of fun making sketches.. its just bad that i don't have a stylus pen.. but overall, it really amazes me BIG TIME!

and by the way, no prob on the fave! its really worth it!

it really says something when someone makes something using flash that allows me to draw better
than my normal paint program. :)

i t may not be the best for sketching and stuff, But its great for pixelating. :)

I had fun scripting the tilt of the pen as you move it around. I think it makes it look much more natural. Gives it a nice effect. ^_^
