As I was working on some art for my project, I decided that I should add an outline around some objects.
So I tried my method; which was to create a second image slightly larger than the first, make it all black, then draw it with a slight offset to the original image.
For a little bit, everything was fine and dandy, but then I went and tried it on some different shaped images, and everything went downhill.
Here are the images for the first outline, the good one:
And then when I tried something irregular, this happened:
So hopefully you can see my problem, but if the image is to small, then I can try describe it. Ok, when I draw an "outline" around my image, it turns out normal. Yet, when I try draw an outline around my more irregular image, the outline doesn't reach all the edges of the image. Only some are visible.
What I want is to be able to have the outline all the way around the edges of the image, like the first image.
Is there a better way to draw outlines? Or is this the best way, if so, what am I doing wrong to get this outcome?
Any help is appreciated,
