Dear gesture drawing friends,
You’ve been waiting oh so patiently for updates, and I’m so glad to be able to announce one of the biggest updates in the history of these drawing tools is on the horizon.
As many of you know, back when I originally put these tools together, I had just made them for my own practice without realizing anyone else would ever use them, so I neglected to give them a name. But the time has long since come and gone that it made sense to just continue referring to the site as “my gesture drawing tools.” Many of you have taken to referring to them as pixelovely because of the domain name, when in actuality, that’s the name I use for my freelance web development business.
On November 24th, this site will re-launch under the name Line of Action. It will get its own domain, its own brand, and a much better defined plan for updates, improvements, and photo shoots. But it won’t just be a fresh coat of paint and some new documents; when we relaunch, it will be with a whole new set of drawing tools.
That’s right, the gesture drawing tools have been completely rebuilt from the ground up. We did this partially to make it more flexible for future uses, but also to bring you the features you’ve wanted for ages: An on-screen timer for how much longer you have to wrap up the pose you’re drawing before the next one appears. The ability to set a custom time interval. The ability to hide the interface buttons and take your photos full screen. Just a better all around drawing experience!
In the coming weeks I’ll have some more updates for you about what to expect from this transition. I don’t know about you, but I can hardly wait!
