 ID:184413   Oct 4 2006, 2:43 am How the 'eff do you make the nonagram. Not to be confused with the nonogram, the nonagram is Slipknots symbol, and I'd like to learn how to draw it. Anyone out there know? It's not on the internet anywhere.

 #2 Oct 4 2006, 2:58 am In response to Nadrew (#1) I've seen the images and such, it's just, there's certain ways to draw it. I've seen a few people around town do it, but I don't like..ever see them. They do it in some odd way..o_o
 #3 Oct 4 2006, 2:59 am Its just basiclly 3 triangles lol if you look at a pic of it its easy to tell where the triangles should be drawn. http://img.search.yahoo.com/search/ images?ei=utf-8&fr=slv8-iy&p=nonagram

 #7 Oct 4 2006, 5:32 am Why do you have to follow some specific directions? If the end result looks like it should, then how you got there is irrelevant... As a tip, though, in the style of the Slipknot version, there's no way to do it with one continuous line, like you'd draw a 5-point star... You need to draw each "element" seperately... There is one example on the Google images search that was drawn with a continuous line (the blue one hosted on "jimloy.com"), but that one doesn't resemble the Slipknot style... Looking at the pictures linked for it, I can tell that all it is is a circle with three triangles inside, one pointing up, and the other two slightly rotated so the 9 points are equidistant around the circle... Looking closely at the Slipknot version, it looks like they've gone an extra step and made the edges of the triangles concave (curved inward)... The best method, I think, for a novice trying to do this is the following steps: 1) Draw a circle 2) Draw a triangle inside the circle, pointing up (you have to try to make this a perfect equilateral triangle) 3) Find the two points along the circle that are in between where each point of the triangle touches it, and divide that section of the circle into three equal parts (this can to be eyeballed, but there are methods using tools like compasses and such to do it, too) 4) Connect these points to form two more triangles (to figure out which set of three points belongs to which triangle, you can follow along the circle, and each point that is 1st in each section belongs to one, and each point that is second belongs to the other) It's kind of difficult for me to explain it much simpler than that, maybe someone else can simplify it...
