Here's one for ya'. Maybe our ESTEEMED ArtRage devs. might have an idea on this. (See, I can suck up with the best of them...)
As I believe I've mentioned before, one of the quirky aspects of my work has been the drawing of rather absurd music scores. I developed my own note/symbols, in fact a whole dictionary of them, several volumes of "Music Thoery" and many "Scores". These scores became very unweildy being often
8"-12" high and 16 feet long. I would bifold them into covers and this led to my interest in book binding. They also looked rather cool push pinned to a wall, but were, needless to say, impossible to frame. I've included a pic of one of these as an attachment.
I'd like to do these on my computer. Is there a way to set it up that you could scroll, horizontally, continuosly? I know like when you download a document in Adobe, it can be litterally hundreds of pages long but you just keep scrolling down and it just keeps coming... Could this be done horizontally as well?
I'm not really interested in animating these, altho the thought has crossed my mind. (Along with a synth sound track, maybe, someday) But maybe that's what they would really be? I'd kind of like the viewer to be able to control the movement. At least at this time as I can't even imagine trying to learn music and animation software along with AR, Painter, and Pshop, Yeesch...
Also included is a recent attempt, in Painter for doing the straight lines, at continuing with these digitally. Please bear in mind that this was an attempt to learn how to do the staff/scaffold as well as testing pen types for my symbols. I was, never the less, happy to accomplish even this at this time. Any ideas are much welcomed.
