(B) THE DISSECTED DRAWING
© Chang Hon Woon 2011
A total of 258 drawing objects were created to form this digital drawing. Each squid was created with 70 drawing objects. Imagine that each drawing object is drawn on a piece of clear plastic transparency. Do you know how thick the pile of transparencies will be when they are stacked together to form the picture? The thickness will be more than half a ream of typing paper. But by using the Select Objects tool, all these individual transparencies or layers that move independently can be grouped into a single unit. This tool is quite cool, don’t you think? By the way, this feature is also found in other professional computer graphics software.
