Haha, like I said, saw it and skipped right over it
Maybe this is the right place to ask this question. I was taught this optical illusion drawing thing awhile ago and I don’t know if it has a specific name. You draw a circle, and then you put “points” on the circle at regular intervals around the edge (I’ve found every 15 degrees or so works great), and then you draw a line from each point to every other point. If you are precise, the finished product looks like half of a 3D ball with concentric circles going out from the center.
Does anyone know what this is called? Or if it even has a name?
I remember doing this when I should’ve been doing x-y intercepts in math class. - Rich
While I do those kinds of drawings as well, this is what I was trying to describe.
SO many possibilities with this, if you only connect the lines in the middle, the outside edges, middle third etc… I’m planning on making a bunch of coasters (and other things) with these kinds of designs.
@dwardio Yeah, that is showing the kinds of things I was hoping to do with this. I didn’t know that someone already wrote up any kind of tutorial for it already.
In a similar vein, has anyone clicked on Amaziograph’s Related tab in the app store? Some additional iPad apps that might be worth checking out…
iOrnament ($3.99) touts Apple Pencil support for those sporting an iPad Pro and 3D Touch on the newer iPhones.
KaleidoPaint (freeware) GNU license, avail on iOS and Android
The list gets even longer. Type “Spirograph” in the app store search.
Good eye. Also, y’all. Man. I’m spending way, way too much time with these…
I think I’ve made a 60s tablecloth.
what do you think, dan, could you pull it off as a dress?
I just got an Android 6.0 Marshmallow tablet. One of the first things I tried to install on it was Adobe Capture but Google Play is telling me it’s not compatible with my device. Has anyone else seen that? Any suggestions? Thanks!
I really enjoyed looking at the various methods to draw the eclipse and the cardioid
I just did some research and answered my own question. Adobe Capture is not currently supported on Android tablets but will hopefully be soon.
You might try side loading the APK file. I often find that apps work just fine on unsupported devices when you do that. If I find some free time I can experiment on my end.
You did an amazing job recreating the feel of nature’s original.
Adobe Capture is finally compatible with Android tablets! And it’s just as fascinating as you all said!
I can see this pattern showing up in some graphic design soon.
Didn’t have an iPad back then and forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder!
