# Trail art tips for beginners!

Hi there! Someone recently asked me to give them some trail art tips. Since then, I wanted to create a tutorial on it! Sit back, and learn how to make some cool trail art.

# Tip One

Think about some things that you really like. It could be your favorite animal, color, or shape. The possibilities are endless!

# Tip Two

Start Creating!

TIPS

• Find an awesome picture of what you want to recreate

Now for the tutorial

Look for different lines on the image/image in your head, then figure out how to code those. This is a very important part of recreating an image. Here are some methods you could use:

Simple Circle

Horizontal lines

With horizontal lines, I like to use the â€śchange x byâ€ť block instead of move forward. I like to use it because it will always return to a horizontal line instead of going with an angle. Hereâ€™s an example:

The same thing applies to a vertical line, which is why I like to use the â€śchange y byâ€ť block.

Vertical lines

Sin/cos circle

How about you try messing around with the positions, and see what happens!

I would suggest checking out this project as well!

# Tip three

Speed it up!

I like to use the â€śset speedâ€ť block to make sure my trail art gets done as quick as possible. It makes lines pass by before you can say â€śIâ€™ve learned some cool trail art tips!â€ť So go ahead and add set speed at the beginning of your code.

I hope this tutorial helped you learn how to make some pretty cool trail art! Feel free to ask me for some more tips!

Nice job. I donâ€™t usually do trail art, but you can also do circles and ellipses a bit differently. Example: sine and cosine can use horizontal and vertical multipliers to stretch the shape, and if a circle is drawn first, you can use draw width 100 set x y to same, draw width 80 set x y to same for a circle 10px thick.

Also, I recommend linking a few demo projects or samples such as ISNBNâ€™s trail art basics.

Nice! Super well written nd itâ€™ll def help a lot of people.

For circle, Iâ€™d recommend using sin/cos instead. Faster and smoother.
Use set pos too instead of change _ by
