Draw graphics similar to that of the arc function from canvas?


Recommended Posts

I have a game I built with melonJS. Instead of using images for the main player sprite, i used the canvas API directly. The reason for this is so I could scale the snowball easily, and not have to worry about making different image sizes so it looks good. Try it out here: http://projects.agmprojects.com/snowballeffect/. Collide into stuff to watch it grow.


I started rebuilding this in Phaser, to get a solid feel of the engine. I started using pixi's graphics, but it only creates basic ellipses and shapes. The snow ball uses partial arcs to create the crescent moon shadow. Is this something that is doable? Would i maybe want to go as far as using a shader for the webgl renderer, and canvas api calls for the canvas renderer?
