2ndClassCitizenPundit On March - 16 - 2011

As a departure from my usual snarky self, I decided that perhaps my friends at PlanetPOV could use something else to think about for a bit.

So I generated these pictures for you all to contemplate.


I like the slight Native-American feel to this one.


I wasn’t intending to create something with swords (or crosses, depending on your POV), but this has more of a stained glass feel to it, which I always enjoy.


And this is actually a combination of the first and second images, which I believe creates more of a mandala effect somehow.


Somehow, using all three of the previous images, I managed to create a mandala-esque image that has, in my opinion, more of an Indian feel to it.


Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these for a few moments. I’ve been wanting to research a technique for transferring images like these onto glass, etched, filled, and back-lit, but that is beyond anything I have resources or skills for.

    First one looks like you were playing with a tartan. Psychedelic Scot!

    • I’ve actually done tartans, on the computer, which can be a pain in the posterior. Most of it I had to do by hand, pixel by pixel in Paintbrush… and you have to get the pixels to line up perfectly or the effect is gone.

      I’ve also done houndstooth patterns, and never want to again.

    2CCP -- This art is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    And you’re right; that third one really DOES have a stained-glass feel to it.

    Buddy!
    I am such a fan!
    I love mandalas, there is a favorite of mine in blues and purples, could you do something in blues?
    These are relaxing and comforting- the green is like Spring.
    Thanks :)

    You did make me feel better--your art has. I like being pulled in by the pattern and the green just feels very good today.
