So, I’ve tried to learn how to do these twirls with Corel for weeks, if not months. Got lots of grey hair but could never get it right. At the end I gave up and even refused to re-intall Corel after a format c I had to do recently. Gimp is just perfectly fine for my pixel paintings and oh well, I just don’t do vector that often. Now today a friend recommendet Inkscape to me. Inkscape is a free vector application, if you would like, Gimp’s vector sibling. I simply love it! To learn how to make these twirls was a matter of 5 minutes. It’s so easy, even a 5 years old could do it. While it is almost impossible to find any good tutorials for Corel, there are tons of really helpful tuts available on YouTube. Just search for Inkscape and get bombed. Now someone tell me please, why did I spend that much money for a software that I don’t use? Corel do you hear me? You suck!
I’m still working on the fishtank project for Mamajin. Got some waterplants now along with some pebbles for the tank floor. So it’s slowly time to start with the fishies since a fishtank with only plants is kinda boring, right?! Mamajin loves everything asia’ish and of course she loves panda bears, but can you imagine, she doesn’t know the Blue Panda Fish! *gasp* How did that happen?! The cutest fish around and she doesn’t know it! About time we change that, right?! So I went and got one for her. Now I’m curious what she will say and if he will find a home in her fishtank.
