    So long, and thanks for all the fish!

    Hi all

    As some here may know I have recently moved across to the Mac OS environment. It’s early days but so far so good - super fast and smooth operation, slick interface, etc. It’s not been...

    Re: Tessellating patterns

    Very nice. I am on my way, but I've got a few distractions at the moment, like my shiny new (Mac) computer! :D

    Re: Tessellating patterns

    Very nice Egg. Loads of possibilities. Just add imagination!

    I've just had a quick trawl through a few tessellating images I've uploaded to TG over the years. There's even one that must have been...

    Re: Tessellating patterns

    I rarely print things out nowadays but thanks for the idea. Being based on vectors it should scale up ok.

    :D How did I miss that challenge? I’ll have a go in the next few days.

    Since as long as I can remember I've always had a fascination with the drawings and prints by M.C. Escher.

    Re: “Yeah, I was a tadpole too once”

    Thanks both.

    @gwp Yes, lucky I was looking. I would have been devastated.

    “Yeah, I was a tadpole too once”

    The common frog (Rana temporaria).

    Always been fascinated by frogs and amphibious animals. This one hopped out when I was mowing the lawn. Quite beefy front legs, probably been down the gym. ;)

    Re: more pareidolia

    I’m not sure if it’s photoshopped or not, but it’s a great shot. I guess if you take enough photos of anything like clouds or waves you’re bound to see something eventually if you’re looking.

    What do you want to draw? Do you mean straw, as in the agricultural byproduct consisting of the dry stalks of cereal plants after the grain and chaff have been removed? If so, the construction of the...
  10. Re: Albrecht Dürer and my passion for woodcut art

    Really enjoying watching this come to life. It looks like the end is approaching, although I suspect there’s a lot detail in the next section.

    Yes, you've rumbled me trying to look cleaver with help from Google! Just searched 'gibbus' and wish I hadn't. :(

    I don't know about 'calf' looks more moose to me. :D

    Excellent well done. Perhaps the first of many!

    A non-fiction idea could be a collection of your tutorials, “The Joy of X”. ;)

    8GB would be fine for my fairly simple needs, but I’m going for 16GB to be on safe side. You can’t add more later as it’s built on to the M1 SoC (system on a chip). You can also run iOS (iPad) apps...

    1. Insurance claim - you've had a leak?
    2. The stain is almost an exact copy of the outline of a Hebradian archpeligo island.
