Do you want a more refined and harmonized composition in your life and work? Observation is an excellent way to achieve it.

Consider this; the world is like a vast canvas of space that sits on the easel of the universe. The canvas is filled with details of all shapes, colors and sizes that move about like an animated picture. In some cases it can appear noisy and confusing, and in other cases it can appear peaceful and clear. These fragments of life that we observe can influence us and make us feel a variety of things. Observation allows us to make sense of everything.

With observation we can follow the patterns- we can trace the details. In doing so, we can develop a sense of relativity that brings us a greater understanding of what is happening. All the pieces of reality surrounding us can be used to focus our awareness towards a point within us that becomes masterful. All these pieces in the presence of an order allow us to construct a greater picture that brings meaning to our life.

With your patronage more people can begin  tracing masterpieces!

Tracing Masterpieces emphasizes the following lines of action.

Path of the Tracer

 Observation techniques are necessary to develop a sense of orientation.
     + Spatial awareness
     + Focusing
     + Line projection
     + Pattern recognition

 As the Tracer becomes oriented, practices develop that provide for transitory movements.
     + mental stretching
     + warm up
     + exertion / intent
     + drawing

 Design emerges from a disciplined use of motion. It is the precursor to success and mastery.
     + Timing / measure
     + Continuity / signal
     + Presence
     + Reaction

The list above provides a quick overview of the process for attaining mastery. Actual practice can be fairly complex, and is why this patron page exists. Tracing Masterpieces provides content that explores the peculiarities involved with observation, and attempts to illustrate the relationship between the spaces and lines.

Who are you?
 My name is Alex, and I ..

What are you currently working on?

I work on various projects ranging from games to tools. My most popular project, Crocotile3d, is a 3d modeling tool that uses tiles to construct a scene. It provides a unique workflow for people that need a simpler solution for creating low poly models.Another tool I have made is Pixel.tools , which is a full feature pixel-art editor in the browser. I have also open sourced it here. It has everything you would need as a pixel artist, including the ability to create images with multiple people simultaneously.
Another pixel-art editor is also in development that will be focused around my colordex system, and will provide a unique way of painting.

Great! what can I do to help?

Your contributions help immensely with allowing me to continue developing projects that are meaningful to me and others. If you become a patron of mine, you will be helping me develop useful tools for artists and creators around the world. I would also have more time to create meaningful works of art and games that others can enjoy and be inspired by. Thank you for choosing to support my artistic goals and creative dreams.


Thanks
