    The Camping Bug


    Totally silly
    Quick play with the gloop tool presets, after installing AR 3.5.2, and Al!'s smooth wetness preset.

    I like it! You make me want to play around with the gloop pen; I've never tried it, but that's an interesting tool!

    Hahaha. The magic bus!

    Love it! I never owned one of these but they were all over the out back California roads in the 60s. Back then they weren't shaped quite like this, but it still get's the spirit nicely.

    Love the love bug on top. . . More emblematic than a hood ornament. . .

    What a great use of the gloopy thing , remindes me of when it was fun to see how many could squeeze into the bug

    Thanks, Jean, and for jogging my mind with the word "bug".
    I just couldn't come up with the name last night, so called it VW Camper-small, to suggest it was slightly like the little car, not the VW Van.
    And I've changed the title accordingly.

    Thank you, Scribbledsoul, using the gloop pen is certainly not going to be as precisely detailed as your marvellous pencil drawing of the cat.

    @ D Akey, Oh God, that is funny, I never saw that resemblance to a bug on the roof until you pointed it out! I saw it as camping stuff, flapping loose in the wind.

    And if i hadn't been mindlessly doodling, I think that I could've angled the two side wheels as the front ones, and it might have looked a bit more like a VW Bug. Too late, the Bug is all one layer.
    Thanks for opening up my eyes once more.

    Thanks, Hildee .

    Thank you, MSIE.

    @ Gxhpainter, Thank you, I got a kick out of the colours, myself!

    Oh this is so much fun and reminds me of the balloons that the clowns used to bend into shape. Its also speaks to me of the 60's such great times. Great job Hinket

    Thanks, Coops

    I have such wonderful memories of going camping, and the joy and freedom we felt on the road, on the way to the campsite ground.

    Now you have to make the reservations for a campsite well in advance, and as there is one lake only a half hour's drive away, and another 45 minutes' drive away, there's no need to camp.
