1029: Drawing Stars
Title text: Screw these 36-degree angles. I'm converting to Judaism.
In this comic, Randall attempts to draw a 5 pointed star, which is one of the toughest things to draw for whatever reason. The image text references the fact that a 5 pointed star has all 36 degree angles. Also, it references that one of the symbols of Judaism is a 6 pointed star, which is infinitely easier to draw because it is composed of two equilateral triangles.
- HOW TO DRAW A STAR:
[A slightly curved line is drawn, starting with a point near the top center of the panel, and going downward and to the left at approximately a 23-degree angle, with an arrow at the end.]
- [Another slightly curved line goes up and to the right, creating a 34-degree angle with the first line.]
- So far so good...
- [A third line goes up and to the left, creating a 58-degree angle with the last line. The drawing now sort of resembles a tent being blown over in the wind.]
- Steady as she goes...
- [The fourth line goes down and to the right, creating an approximately 47-degree angle with the last line, and our star is beginning to look a bit askew.]
- ...uh oh.
- [The fifth line comes up at a 48-degree angle, completely missing the first point by a mile, and our star has failed spectacularly.]
