This weeks offering is a cicada. Got to a point with this one that I finally had to stop because I found myself in a circle of reworking everything. I also figured out that I can apply blurs to shapes without converting them to bit maps first, wish I had caught on to that sooner. Had a lot of fun with transparencies drawing this and love the fact that everything I need to create these images is right there in Xara. No more paints and brushes for me, I’m a Xara baby now. Need to move on to a different project, maybe another frog this time, can’t wait to get started.
