    Default Step-by-step compass

    heya, tired of searching some free-to-use decorational compass? It's easier then you think to draw something that looks ok. I had fun making that island sequence so I did another 30mins sequence for a compass. The trick is keeping things symmetrical and even 'not-so-pretty shapes' will come-out looking ok. Of course to make it REALLY pretty, some more time and accuracy is needed but heres the steps i use... hopefully it's of use to someone cheers!

    + rep. For some reason, I had never considered just hand sketching and mirroring to make the points on my compass like that. Seems obvious now.
