    Default Contour Tool art

    I've been looking at the Xara Contour tool and feel that it is limited in it's applications. Can anyone prove me wrong?

    What interesting images can be created with this tool?

    Hi Anas,

    The Circles in the attached image were created using contours and a technique that Ross Macintosh posted several years ago.

    A four point quickshape star, contoured, cloned, rotated 25%, blended, cloned and rotated a few more times and animated. What I like about it is the contoured quickshape seems to rotate counter-clockwise, and the rotated blend rotates in the opposite direction. (or is it just me?)
    Saludos,

    Here's a seamless tile made from a contoured rectangle.
    Makes nice fills.

    I like the "out of bounds" effect of the shapes and shadows
    outside of the frame.
    This one is just a quickshape and contour.
