Random Drawings

Sleeping Dragons is a doodle I made while fooling around with the WACOM draw-on monitor at the computer lab at school

Photoshop CS3 apparently has a brush shaped like butterflies. I like the wavy-feeling of drawing hair, and butterflies seemed appropriate. It reminds me of my sister’s hair.

I really like what you did with the butterfly brush
do you have a higher res version that i could make into a poster for my room?
or I could just trace it with my wacom tablet lol

Adrian, I did it with no future plans for it, so I unfortunately don’t have a high res version at the moment. I could work to make it higher res… can’t it be done without recreating the picture, but just messing around with dpi and image size settings?

What do you think?

Yes it could… but when you do posters and prints, 640×480 can only get so clear. I like my prints at ridiculous dpis so i ended up scaling it up quite abit
this is my trace of it

The normal one is something like 9000x 8000
but i have this scaled down so i can host it (i only get about 5 mbs of space)

I was just curious if you had a highres on hand cause i still like the original better than my attempt

posters need are usually 32×24 and normal dpi is 72 for web images, 300 for print. that means that 2300×1700 for normal print, and detail is about 3 times that.

But i’ll just use mine for now, Its pretty much the same thing anyways except my butterflies don’t flow as well :P

Hi Jacob,
I was wondering if I could use your butterfly hair for a t-shirt for a band?

Please let me know if it is ok.

You can definitely use it as a design for a band t-shirt… just send me one of the t-shirts and some of their music!
e-mail me at jlefton@gmail.com.
