Same drawing, different filtering. The inspiration for this was a cheesy futuristic vampire movie I saw where the vampire liked to paint his symbols on the walls of his victims' rooms in florescent paint and then leave a black-light on . . . I guess so that it would look cool when the cops showed up LOL . . .

Fun? This is serious quality-testing work for my users. No fun here. Honest. Ok, I'm making textures at 8pm on a Friday night--I guess you caught me. :wacko: :D

Any chance we can take a look under the hood on that one? Is it just all vectors and styles?

That's not evil. It's the right way up, so it's wiccan, the church of nature, witches. Not evil. :D

No, it's not all vectors and styles. Although you could make the entire texture in the Canvas node, I find that the quickest way to work is to use a mix of vectors and nodes for whatever is the easiest way to make any given element.

Well, shoot. If I had known that I would have flipped that pentagram right around. :wacko: :angry:

Thank you for that, very enlightening. However, I must be an idiot because I still can't wrap my head around it. Any chance I can see the gtx file?

...oh...wait. I'd need the beta for that to do me any good...hrmm...

ok lesson time

the pentangle, now pentacle, is an astronomical symbol that describes the path of the planet venus as it appears as "the morning star" over an 8 year period. the circle represents the horizon. the planet mercury creates a star of david type path.

end lesson

sorry, but I get rather sick of lies being spread about this ancient symbol. it also maps the pythagorean ratio, the golden ratio numerous ways. it is a symbol of mathematics and astronomy from a long time ago, nothing more. unfortunately, Hollywood is where we make our living...

Ancient symbols often get adopted by various cultures as the centuries roll on. The page Sethren linked to did a good job of listing the various ways the symbol has been used over time, beginning with the Greeks who invented it, and continuing on with the Christians, Jews, Pagans, Satanists, and others who have borrowed the symbol for their own purposes.

Edit: My bad. The pentagram first appeared in Mesopotamia a couple thousand years before Pythagoras.
