Woooohooooo! Vectornator and I Drew Trees!

Not long ago I talked about the Vectornator app and how I wanted to see if we’d get along OK once I began working with it. There’s good news to report: I drew some trees! And not only did I draw them but also successfully turned them into a much larger image (as a transparency) so they could be uploaded to my Redbubble shop for printing on various products – clothing, prints, cases, bags, clocks, comforters, shower curtains, etc. 

This is a major step forward for me because now I can create work that’s not stuck in one size. That’s because vector images can be enlarged without losing resolution. What this means is that I can make not only new patterns and abstract images that’ll be size-adjustable but also new faces, too! YAY!!!

The image above began life as a 1024x1024px svg image. Once I finished drawing it I converted it to a 4000x4000px png to upload for the Redbubble products test. I could’ve made it larger (big enough to suit the largest allowable product image size) but didn’t need to for the test. More good news: my tipsy little trees worked great.

It’s a new world of art-possibilities!

Bright Colors Spinning

Today I created my first from-the-ground-up image using the Pixelmator Pro program. First, I did a simple (but colorful) digital painting. Then I started clicking on the various tools that Pixelmator Pro offers. Wow! They are numerous and powerful.

You can see the result, “Bright Colors Spinning,” on the two Redbubble products above. The shapes appear to spin because of a circular blur.

Even though it’s only my first non-photographic attempt with Pixelmator Pro it’s making me smile so I posted it for sale – on the full line of Redbubble products. 

Can’t wait to make more goodies using Pixelmator Pro!
