A few while ago someone had requested that I make a trail art tutorial, so here I am! Now, sit back as I share steps I use to code trail art!
find your inspiration
What inspires you? What do you like? Nature? Technology? Space? Animals? Maybe even food! The more original the idea is, the better! The best thing about making trail art is that there’s thousands and thousands of things that you can make! You will feel more encouraged to make something that you like more than something you don’t.
Tip: if you can’t think of something, you can search on hopscotch for ideas. Remember, the idea won’t come immediately, it may take some time, so don’t worry, an idea will come when you least expect it to.
Before coding, you must always think everything through. So when you have an idea on what to code, try drawing it on a piece of paper first. It doesn’t have to look good on the sheet of paper, a rough sketch will do. As long as you know what it will be, that’s all that matters.
This might be the trickiest part for some people, but don’t fear! I’m here to help, since this this is a guide. If you have never made a trail art and you find it stressful or something, it’s ok to take a break and come back to it later! You don’t have to finish it on the same day, unless you feel that you can do it. Anyway here are some basic shapes that I made to help you:
**Pro Tip: if you want your trail art to go faster use the set speed block. I also use the create a clone block, which can be very helpful.
If you need different shapes, here are some:
This pretty much wraps up the tutorial. Anyway feel free to @ me if you need any help with something
Hope this helps
