A Bit of Fun
I fired this challenge off a while ago on the newsgroup - but no-one took me up on it.

Did you know that as well as being a darn good piece of music software, NoteWorthy Composer version 2 is also a drawing editor.
Here's my attempt - anybody else ?

Very interesting Rich.  Never been much of an artist myself.

Rich,
Thank you for that very cool looking April Fool!  Incidently, your artwork also is a perfect demonstration of how not WYSIWYG the editor is.  The Joker absolutely falls apart in print preview.
Sincerely,

So it does ! Didn't notice that before. Good spot.
Looks like a function of Drawing the curves is slightly different for print than for the editor.

Just_for_fun.nwc  looks the same in Preview for me. Is there another submission that I missed?

They're similar, Frank, but if you look closely, you'll see the arch of the top of the head is different.

And look where the arch from the head meets the arch from the chin. A big gap on the right hand side.

Hi again Rich.  Just wondering, have you tried "playing" your picture?  Very interesting mish-mash of chords there - LoL.

Yeah I have - bit weird really.
Don't think I could have drawn and also been musically correct as well - lol

This could be your "super" challenge.  Make a picture that plays an actual tune as well.  Ouch, that gives me a headache just thinking about it.  LOL

Could you make a version for NWC1.75b?

Re: A Bit of Fun

I don't know how to do that. I know how to make a NWC1.75 to NWC2, just save it in there.

You could export to MIDI from NWC 2 and import back into NWC1 but it would probably be quicker to just rekey it since MIDI doesn't understand repeats...

As Richard said, not quite what I had in mind.  Anyone can just put in a hidden score with a song in it.  I meant to actually draw a picture with the song actually USING the graphics for the song AND the picture.

Wow, another one where the new icon didn't show up...

No, I don't have the CD.
I purchased way back when it was on floppy (v1.5), and have always upgraded on line.

It may appear to be a mish mash of notes to some, but its in fact almost pure plagiarism - don't you hear Stravinky's Piano Rag Music here?
