iDraw:Double-Tech at the Crack of Dawn

Somehow it took until this morning to figure out that if I wanted a quick photo of myself to work from, I didn't need to take a digital photo and then upload it to the computer - I could use the darn video camera in the computer! In fact I can use the live video feed on the computer as a mirror. So this was drawn on the iPod Touch (Squiggles again, I'll try something new tomorrow) while looking at myself in 'photobooth' on my macbook . It was about 5 am so the video reproduction of my face in low light was kind of blue/purple. That's my excuse anyway, and i'm sticking to it!

On the Squiggles front, one thing I've been finding frustrating with Squiggles is that there;s no eyedropper tool. There's a full color-picker, which is great, but there's no way to get the exact same color as you picked and used somewhere else in the drawing. Well, I take that back - there is a cloning tool, so if you have a large swath of a color somewhere, you can sort of use cloning to draw with that color again but it's very awkward, and really not the intended use of that tool.

Squiggles is now at version 1.5 and has an eyedropper and more color selection options (and other new features)
