Dystar, this is more than a dragonfly, I see it in an angel as well. The precision is perfect, I love how the top wings sweep upwards you get lost in the knot work. This could be any color, but I see it in iridescence with a sharp indigo to blue halo. It reminds me of the medical logo as well. You really do have a gift, I've been trying to find where it starts... where it ends. I can't wait to place it in the logo and see how it looks. Thank you for doing this, I appreciate it a lot. Namaste
Well, thank you. That's nice of you to say. My process went basically like this: I first roughed my basic wing design and scanned it into Adobe Illustrator. (I imagine Inkscape would do just as well.) I then traced my general lines with a thick stroke pen tool without the breaks in the line. Once done, I used the Transform->Mirror command, which can create a copy of the original wing inverted along the X- or Y-axis. To move the mirrored wing, you can hold down one of the chord keys to move an object without straying from a particular axis. (I use it so unconsciously anymore that I'm not sure which key it is... I think it's the "shift" key.) I continued with the pen tool connecting both wings together at the body. After that, I used the Outline Strokes command. This gave me an outline of all my lines. Then it was just a matter of making the breaks in the appropriate locations.
