Skeletal Draw is an implementation of our vision of a professional drawing system (Figure 21). The current system is implemented on a 486 PC under MS-Windows™, and is derived from a previous Unix™ version on X.
The system consists of less than 15000 lines of C++ code. Basic drawing tools like the free-hand brush, the polygonal pen, rubber rectangles and so on are all available; their uses are basically identical to those in most other drawing systems. The major difference is that the strokes are directional and much more expressive than the usual constant thickness strokes.
