Ugh, I spent too much time trying to understand this drawing app and didn't like results.
Decided to post for future reference.

I think you did an excellent job with it.. and I think lascaux classic will grow on ya eventually.
luv2 (Dec 9, 2021)
Thanks, took forever to figure out how to make brushes different size, how to blend, how to submit after hidden. More to learn for sure!
Do any of the apps have a symmetry tool?
davincipoppalag (Dec 9, 2021)
not sure.. I never use any of the others.. been using classic lascaux since 2003]

Absolutely beautiful work I think you captured the poinsettia wonderfully
I do have a soft spot for Lascaux ..(to be honest this site and Lascaux was one of my first introductions to digital art wayyyy back when I was a teenager so I have a long history with it lol) these days I tend to use Kleki more tho as that’s what works best and is less glitchy with the tablet I use the most but I think all the different apps have their good and bad points … don’t know about symmetry tool but it would be good if there was hidden away somewhere! ..duplicating layers and flipping only goes so far
luv2 (Dec 10, 2021)
Thanks again to you both for your insight. I guess instead of trying to draw I need to experiment with all the tools on the different draw apps.
I did find Kleki and chicken paint easier to draw with. I'm much newer to digital drawing and enjoy but it seems each program has it challenges with pros and cons.

at one time there was a Wiki with explanations of all the tools and tricks of Lascaux;..but somewhere along the line it disappeared
luv2 (Dec 12, 2021)
David thanks,
Found it and read a bit. I feel I know nothing about digital art after reading it. Seems like an app for the real pros and ones who studied digital art.
A lot is self-explanatory but a lot is what? lol

davincipoppalag (Dec 13, 2021)
yea ..someone recreated that wiki..the original was more basic.. but most of the tools in classic lascaux are pretty easy to figure out..just playing with it..

This is excellent! You're too hard on yourself!
luv2 (Dec 22, 2021)
Thanks again elly, I didn't achieve the look I wanted for the time spent on it.
But I do like learning, and I think I found this site to be one that I'll enjoy learning at.
A group of us have been looking for a new place to create as our current site has undergone another bad change, I wanted to test before an invite.
davincipoppalag (Dec 22, 2021)
We welcome new talent like yours here..bring all your friends!!
elly (Dec 22, 2021)
I agree with Dave! Bring your friends and all y'all's goodies!! We've been waiting for some masters to come along! All welcome!!
luv2 (Dec 23, 2021)
I'm no master, just love learning for some crazy reason.
Helps me get through Winters, which I dislike.
Don't know how they will feel about this site.
I've been looking for a while after RMD.
This public share seems to be dwindling on all sites.
I like a site that doesn't have an import feature, I want to know that you drew it.
I'm impressed with what I see here, and glad there is a moderator to keep the bored students out.
elly (Dec 23, 2021)
luv2 I miss RMD so much. It's where I really developed my skills before coming back here to 'celebrate' my goal! Bring your friends, everyone will fit in! I agree with sites that don't have an import feature too. Anyone can trace, let's see skills!!!
davincipoppalag (Dec 23, 2021)
Yep.. I wish I had the power to move drawings done on the incorrect board..some have an inflated view of their own drawing abilities..but.. it is what it is.. I guess..
elly (Dec 23, 2021)
Gotta start somewhere but you can usually pick out the one's with talent and potential. I'm trying to gather artist friends to join us here. Hope they do!
luv2 (Dec 23, 2021)
Elly, that is where I started learning how to draw. I remember java being the best format and was bummed when it didn't work.
David, I think most would know you are a beginner if you never started a drawing here, but perhaps a parenthesis when you join
Duh (a beginner is someone who has never drawn here) lol Some have inflated egos.
Elly that sounds great, I'm excited to start drawing again after the holidays. Travel and an ill parent have consumed much time but look forward to drawing again!
elly (Dec 24, 2021)
luv2, I think I remember you from RMD. Do you remember 'Snowman wars'?
luv2 (Dec 24, 2021)
Elly, I was late to the party there. Competitions were just ending.
People were getting crazy weird about posts.
Winners of wacom tablets or pens who were very talented would leave.
Ronda, from NM invited me. I remember very few users.
Talented Betty, with a horse user icon, Audriana from Greece, Amethyste, some guy did a lot of still life.
Like I said, most with talent left. Where you Elly there as well? I'm luv2 on all sites. Use to be luvstorms but got tired of typing out.
elly (Dec 25, 2021)
luv2 I was ellyart on RMD. 'Brutus' and I did the Snowman Wars series for about 3 yrs
luv2 (Dec 26, 2021)
Wow, that must have been fun when all the great digital artists were there. I've discovered digital drawing late, so I'm amazed and
mad respect for all those great artists who draw so well on sites like RMD and here such as you and David.
Can't wait to improve my skills and try all the apps.
I hope you and moderator David had a Merry Christmas. ツ
davincipoppalag (Dec 26, 2021)
Thanks.. my
Christmas was good.. take a look through the showcase to see the really good stuff that was here.. we had some really good artists here ..the place shut off when Java came out as not good...but then marcello found a work around so you could use the applets again..and added some new ones here..little by little some are returning and folks likeyou discover really encourage your friends to come try out the site@!
elly (Dec 26, 2021)
I recruited a good artist who just told me he joined! Can't wait to see what he comes out with! My Christmas was very nice as well! Yes check the showcase! Some of those drawings will blow your mind!
luv2 (Dec 26, 2021)
Yes, the showcase is where I saw your fish, Elly.
I didn't realize there were 25 pages.
I'm impressed by some of the portrait artists, the time spent, and the beautiful results.
I can't do people very well; you can't be off on features very much because the face is distorted then, yet I try. lol
