One of the reasons I wanted a Note 8 in replacement for my Note II is the stylus pen that comes with it.
That’s because I also have apps like Painter, Art Canvas, Paper Artist, and Pixlr. So, for instance, if I’m waiting somewhere or if I just want my mind to unwind or if I want to zone out, I apt to grab the stylus, open up Painter, and . . .
Not satisfied, I might import that into Pixlr and . . .
Or, I might really want to unwind and do something a bit more intricate . . .
. . . and again play with various styles and overlays in Pixlr.
Enabling my OCD personality, I might go all out with something like this:
You would think I’d jump into Pixlr again but I surprise myself and play with Paper Artist.
Paper Artist has a lot of effects (although some seem redundant) and a feature of the program is the ability to paint away the top-most effect to reveal a different below it. For instance . . .
These next three are all related, but slightly different and found by “peeling away” the upper layer
There are other effects mimicking painting mediums and styles . . .
That’s all fine and well, you say, but doesn’t it become repetitive? I mean, how many patterns can you do that don’t all look the same?
Well, Bob, the answers to those questions are “no” and “you’d be surprised”.
Besides, I can also use Art Canvas to Painter to draw stuff. I’m a poor excuse for an artist but . . .
“Well, that’s nice . . . bland, simple, unassuming, but nice . . . I suppose.”
Well, let me take it into Paper artist . . .
“Well, color me unimpressed!”
Oh, it’s color you want, eh? OK, then, how about this?
“OK, but where’s the drama?”
You want drama?! I’ll give you drama!
“I don’t know . . . it just doesn’t jump out at me. You know what I mean?”
Oh, you want it jumping out at you, eh? Why didn’t you say so?
“Meh . . . it all still looks too bland. Sorry; this just isn’t cutting it.”
No one is ever satisfied . . . I suppose you want something like this, right?
“Yeah! That’s what I’m talking about! But . . . can you put all the above in a gallery? And, can you randomize them in a tiled mosaic?”
*sigh* Sure, but that’s the last thing I’ll do.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
