  • Protect yourself

    There have been a couple scrollers who have lost their entire hard drive and library of work/patterns recently. I figured it might be a good time to remind everyone here to back up their computers and take care to run virus scans every so often.

    Seems odd to me that these folks are scrollers and from what I know, all of them are enthusiastic about forums, and the practice of photo manipulation/computer assisted design.

    I don't know much about computers, but have lost entire hard drives in the past. It is a terrible feeling to not be able to reach what was yours. So, take care where you go scrollers, and protect yourselves.

          Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

          The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
