The Abstraction of an Edwardian Corset

Molossus (aka Sandra Kay Strait), of Life Imitates Doodles, and Enthusiastic Artist (aka Margaret Bremner) turned me on to Scribbler Too, an online drawing tool.  I was already familiar with the original Scribbler by Ze Frank and had played with it a bit in the past, but Scribbler Too, written by Mario Klingemann and based on the original Scribbler, adds more settings and real-time 'webby' effects.  They're both a lot of fun and - yes, Sandra - dangerously addictive!

The first image I based on an advertisement for an Edwardian corset, and I found myself wishing that I had a graphics tablet and stylus for more control -

I gave in to the lack of precision, and went with the flow, playing with various textures -

 And tried my hand using the original scribbler -

Explored the way Scribbler Too creates shadows and depth -

 Got down and funky with the Scribbler, moving back to my more abstract, pre-corset-labelled shapes -

Which morphed into something that could be construed as an alien life form laying - nay, bursting with - eggs!

These drawing tools really popped the laces on my Edwardian prototype!  Wheeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Molossus, and keep on exploring, Fellow Creatives!

Wowza! You are really going to town with the Scribbler Too! Have you joined the Scribbler Zombies on Flickr?

Lol! My verification word is 'dedle', which could be pronounced deadly. Which kinda ties into zombies. Oh, okay. It's a streth, but such is my sense of humor. It made me laugh!

YOU make ME laugh! I'll definitely check out the 'Zombies'. And you have a fantastic weekend! (I do love those verification words. I wonder if they're made up by a roomful of chimpanzees on typewriters?)
