Batman2287 ,

I love the app!...........

One suggestion that would make this even better is to allow for us to change the focal point of the light source. Instead of only having it in the middle by default, it would be great if we could pick the spot on the picture for the light to emanate from. Please consider making that as an option!

The app won’t open anymore. Please update it! Thanks!

Hi Batman2287,

Let me look into this, thanks for your feedback!

Thank you for this unique app!

I love experimenting with this app . It would be great to see few additional tools like changing the size of the particles and ability to randomize them a bit specially when using the same pattern more than ones so they don’t land exactly in the same spot.
And off course having more patterns/particles would be highly appreciated.

Aging internationally published illustrator designer asks to be on focus group

Great beginning I hope you’re not going to abandon the project but I think I could help you get another dollar to or two from people who want what I want… What do I want? I want my own scribbles... I want to be my own cy Twombly without owing you guys too much stylistically.... all I ask is for a percentage of the profits it could be .01 for all I care… I also would like free versions of the new software… I tried HyperCard programming long ago and I found I could record the cursor movements quite easily and then distortThen I could either add randomness ,smooth out the strokes like a missile guided ,or all sorts of things.... you could have a record scribble button with about 100 different distortion parameters so one would not even have to spend all their time scribbling… As someone else mentioned you can’t even change the width of a stroke with your soft well where this alone would be invaluable otherwise the scribbling becomes too precious… Tell me how to contact you and I’ll help all I can as a BFA holding Art mercenary ha ha Ha.... Think of it as micro philanthropy I am on a disability check right now having troubles...sigh,ha so much for my pathos..... let us skin this cat and skin it correctly ha.... I truly believe in the potential that your app has!.... right now I have to beef it up in Snapseed using the double exposure function... what is needed from all these ai generation apps is for them to be unidentifiable and customizable....
