When I make an abstract, it’s for many reasons but almost never with an end result in mind. This is what happened with the previous one! Tonight, a thought popped into mind of making an abstract with an intended end result.
That is what you are seeing now . . . . almost exactly what I wanted. I’m fairly sure I know what some people may think it is, but it isn’t that al all; however, it is sort of related! (I think it would have been much closer if I was able to get my Wacom to work within the laptop window!) I had a pretty good idea of how I was going to achieve that result, too.
This started with a gradient which I used the liquify tool on. Then I used Fractalius, more for it’s ability to alter light and colour, and for it’s ability to emphasise parts of an image with the correct settings. This part of image-making can be lengthy as Fractalius has so many choices and you need to work through them to find exactly what you need when you have a specific finish in mind. Fractalius is also very slow to render.
Finally, I got what I wanted . . . well, almost.
I appreciate you looking and commenting. I would love to hear what you think it is, and I would also appreciate any constructive criticism.
