The Emanation of Movement and Stillness:
Which breaks down into Movement:
Reminding folks who don’t think they have drawing skills, the more elaborate elements of these doubtless have super-schematic versions. I’m betting there’s a version of this that looks like Stillness=heavy vertical line, Motion=asterisk kind of thing, Movement/Stillness=Dark heavy line with light asterisk behind it. Even I could draw that. And I bet that’s what the small IssaInu looked like that Syrix was wearing, in Ancillary Sword, now I think of it.
And of course–you can print things out and glue or sticker them to things. Check the EtrepaBo post for more specific suggestions, but really you can do almost anything with these.
Here’s an SVG file for you to play with:
This is an SVG file with layers. Gimp will open it but it won’t see the layers. I’m told the file (and the corresponding ones for the other Emanations) was made in Adobe Illustrator and will open in that application.
Here’s a PSD file with layers:
This uses the CMYK color scheme. Gimp won’t open it. Presumably Photoshop will. Nicole has said she’ll convert these over to RGB when she gets a chance, at which point I’ll upload those and link them.
Nicole tells me she’s tried very hard to make these layers clear and easy for folks to work with, so y’all can manipulate these and play with them to your heart’s content. And I want to thank her again for doing such awesome work! Please do try to credit her when you use these images, if you can.
