Drawing App (Based on Lucids 'Creepy ink' example)

Ive been working on an Painting App to create game backgrounds.

Its not finished...You can only paint Clouds, Grass and vines, and one type of structure, and you cant save your picture yet.

I managed to paint these backgrounds in about 10 minutes with it.





Download

The download includes a basic tutorial.

Work in progress

It's definitely cool and interesting... sorta limited in its usefulness, though. Also, there's two things that weren't clear to me: 1) how do you create clouds? and 2) what's up with the phrase "control the mouse pressure" in the tutorial? I don't know what mouse you're using, but mine really only is either clicked or not clicked... there's no "in between," so to speak. Anyway, pretty cool stuff.

1, The mouse keys activate the Paint brushes : You move the mouse to paint.

Right mouse click (hold down) Dark green blocks
Middle mouse click (hold down) Clouds
Left mouse click (hold down) Grass and vines.


2, "control the mouse pressure"    Bad description, I meant you can create different effects depending on how long you hold each of the buttons down...it takes a bit of getting used to.

I agree, at the moment it is limited but i will improve it (more brushes)

Oh snap, I'm screwed. I don't have a middle mouse button D:

Well anyway, I still think it's pretty cool and artsy. Keep up the good work :D

key controlled

I have a version that can be controlled with keys (and mouse)
Right arrow / down arrow / left arrow.

Bit tricky to use, but you can give it a go.

This looks like it could be awesome for making procedural jungle scenes for a platform game :D
