Hies all, this is my first post here, motivated by a doubt that's killing me.
I'm currently working with some vectorial cartoonish drawings, and while it's mostly quite easy, I'm having problems with disconnected lines. At the end of a disconnected line it needs to gradually get thinner and end in a small, rounded off point. It needs to to become thinner much slower than the normal rounded-off point, kind of a sharpenned edge effect.
So far the only method I could manage is making a shape instead of a line, but it's much harder to work whenever I want to change something, since I have to rework node by node. So I was wondering if there was a way to convert a line into a shape, so I can modify it all I want as a line, and then turn it into a shape and add the sharpened end.
Thanks in advance.
Dranzyl, try using the Artistic media tool.
If you don't find something you can use in the preset menu, you can always create your own custom shape
Yes, I use it, but like I said it's a pain to work with a shape from the beginning. I change it a million times before I get it right, and while doing that with a line takes seconds, it takes forever with a shape. I want to be able to work it as a line, and then just add the sharpened edges after it's set.
Edit: Oh wait, I just see what you mean. The artistic media has a single line of nodes to modify it with. How did I not realize that? I even used it xD Well I'll give it a try, thanks for taking me out of my own stupidity :P
LOL LOL LOL
believe me, Dranzyl................... we've ALL had our Duh! moments, at one time or another
whether we want to admit it or not
hope you found something that might help with your work!
Yeah this should work, even if the edges are not perfect I can just mess with em after I got the line right.
I'm still kinda interested in the "turn a line into a shape" thing though, given Illustrator has it, I'm pretty sure there must be a way on Corel...
