Vector – traced AmoebaJanuary 13, 2016

I decided to vector trace the red, tentacle-like object in the center of the last drawing posted. I used Illustrator and the pen tool to trace it. I now have an object that I can blow up as large as a billboard or print out as small as a postage stamp and it will look clean. This resolution independence makes this object much more usable to me. I can see it showing up in my next narrative scroll. Additionally, I can change the color inside and change the color of the outside stroke to whatever I want. I just threw a basic radial gradient and an orange colored stroke on it below. I am not quite sure why this object appeals to me. Perhaps the appeal is it’s lack of symmetry, even though, at first glance, it appears to be rather symmetrical.
