Each of these images were drawn separately, and I paid close attention to the differences in the details of each. Most of them began with a rectangle which was converted to curves and nodes edited to get the necessary shapes. en details were added with a major reliance on fountain fills. Also, the Weld, Trim, Intersect and Combine tools were largely used to create these images. Coil spring Figure 3 began by drawing a coil spring wrapped around a shock absorber. When I was happy with that image, I chose to add some additional details to it. e fun of this kind of drawing is that you can include as many or as few details as you wish because it is intended for your own advancement, not for anything else. 2 3 Camera Figure 4 is a made-up drawing of a camera. It was created purely from my imagination to use some of the different tools available in the program, such as fountain fills, transparencies, and other 4 drawing tools. is camera does not actu- ally exist and was drawn strictly for my own amusement. is kind of thing can easily be something that enhances one's drawing skills.
