I am definitely no artist but some people liked this image – I wonder why, no joke.
The Original is about 4000*3000px and was created with “Harmony Keymod”, a heavy modified version of Mr.Doop’s Harmony, a procedural drawing tool, in less than 15 minutes.
I’ve put the tool online on my personal webspace, if you want to give it a spin – here you are:
Try one of the “easy” brushes like “shaded” with the settings “offset-scale” 80, “brush-size” 30 first.
The global composite setting needs some experimentation on your side, especially with the transparency settings, because some work better with low opacity and some with high. Hint: You can erase with destination-out too. The description of what the composite settings and some other things do is linked in “HELP”.
The modifier keys for brush size and opacity can be pressed while drawing to change the brush behavior dynamically.
Save is self explanatory. Save+Alpha lets you re-import the image for further drawing, undo and redo should be pretty straightforward too.
Yes, some of the other options are not quite as self explaining as I would like, but *sigh*, it is a fun project and I add stuff as I see fit.
Everything is self contained in one file, you can even download the page and use it offline, everything you do on that page stays on your computer, no data is send to any place in the interwebs, no tracking etc. pp.
Please write in the comments if you like it or not (How dare you! And, what’s more: Why not?! 😀 ) need more instructions, can provide hints how I can improve it etc. etc.
