Re: Super fine print of Buddhist Chant that fills a Lotus's Silhouette

Sure I don't mind at all. Here's the pattern I used (hand-drawn and copied on 3 lines and shifted by 1/3 each line). om-mani-padme-hum.png Here's the design that uses above pattern that I printed on 8.5x11 (typical printer sized paper). lotus-om.png But uploading the above probably resized it so her...

Super fine print of Buddhist Chant that fills a Lotus's Silhouette

I just went to Staples and printed this super fine print of "Om Mani Padme Hum" Tibetan Buddhist chant
that fills the silhouette of a Lotus flower.
The text is 5 pixels high, and hand-drawn by me, just repeated pattern.

PS: My computer is such a POC, I had to record and let it run for 1 minute until it starts recording properly then start my demo. Then at the end I cut the beginning 1 minute clip out (because it's glitchy). But made it work.

Re: Making gridded patterns

not grid but guides....create guides and snap to guide (it's default on so you might have turned it off) if it's on...when you use the pencil or brush tool when you hover over it it'll snap to guide if it's close to it...

Re: Making gridded patterns

another way would be to draw one thread and crop it so that when pasted side by side they'll all be the same and use the same technique of dragging and dropping a pattern except instead of squares you're dragging a long vertical rectangle onto an image that is 5 times it's width and the pattern will...

Re: Making gridded patterns

Use guides. Image -> Guides -> New Guide. Create multiple guides that are evenly spaced since you can enter exact position (by pixels). Then once you have all your guides, you can choose View->Snap To Guides (I think it's on by default already). But after that you can use the brush tool and hover ov...

Re: Plug-in for this one piece, not useful unless you want it

I have attached the artwork created using this plug-in in 1st post now.
My comment on that post isn't all important (it just said to go to this thread to try/play with the plug-in).

Re: Making gridded patterns

if your "kloster block" or whichever pattern is not contained in the exact square (going over gridlines like you say), maybe you'd want to do it like connecting pipes over more than just it's own grid. like you could do multi-layer...for example for the ones where stitches are going from top to bott...
