Merry...Happy....Holiday Something:360 sphere art experiment

Hello, Ducks! I haven't posted in a while- but I've actually been drawing a lot of monsters, so I should probably change that. Anyway, yesterday I tried something out with the new 360 sphere photos I can create using the Google Streetview app, and to my delight: it worked! It's kind of rushed, because I just wanted to see if it would work. I can't upload directly to Blogger, because- at least, as far as I know- it doesn't yet support 360 photos. This is best viewed on a mobile device- dragging with the mouse on laptop or desktop doesn't look so great. The link will take you to the image on my Facebook profile- it's a public image, so I don't think you need to be logged in or anything.

and here is a sample from the 360 photo:

I hope other Ducks give this a try. Just take any 360 sphere photo and draw over it, as you would any Photoshop file. Flatten and save as a jpeg. I found a site where I can upload and then link to it or embed it (kuula.co). I should have used that here, but I didn't know about it. Next one, I'll take a little more time on it. I need to go out and find a nice environment with stairways and passageways to photograph, so I can use that as my template.
