Some times when I draw freehand designs, they come out better than when I use the compass. This fish design is a case in point. In my mind, I thought I could make a fish out of squares, triangles and wedge shapes.
When I used the compass to make the shapes more precise, the fish cam out looking like a television station logo. Or something.
The same thing happened when I was trying to make a border of circles within a band. When I free-handed the design, it looked rough. When I used geometry, the spacing looked wrong; I'd guessed the proportions incorrectly.
At least this sun-and-moon design came out more-or-less the way I wanted it.
