HTML Canvas Element Cheat Sheet
If you are new to the element, it is important to know that it will only show up once you set a colour and size. Think of it like a blank canvas for painting – you would need to know how big you want your painting to be and what the background is and then paint over from there.
After setting the background, you can start to superimpose shapes with different colors and determine the level of transparency required to show what you are working on. If you find that the basic methods within the canvas element aren’t adequate for your purposes, it might be worth checking out Skilled.co’s new canvas cheat sheet.
The canvas cheat sheet provides additional methods that might apply to your work. The methods are mapped out, so the most used ones are at the beginning, which makes it practical to go through the cheat sheet systematically and try each method to see whether it can help you to get your work done more efficiently. This element is made with graphic designers in mind, so it is advised that you continue to read up on all the ways graphic designers are using it to give you constant inspiration.
