some art?

It looks like crap as a thumbnail... detail is important, and it's abstract, to boot...


just 6 layers in photoshop, maybe 30 minutes, maybe an hour. Started because I wanted to finally understand the trick of generating "lightning" in photoshop. It really spiraled out from there. It'd been forever since I did some 2d abstract photoshop art for its own (and my own) sake...

Howdy, and thanks--mind if I ask how you came across it? :)

There wasn't an original image, though I could show you the layers I did.

Do you know the "lightning" trick in photoshop? Drop a linear gradient (white to black, generally), do a difference clouds, invert, level adjust (middle bar all the way to the right).

Started with that idea, but went with a spherical gradient instead, which gave a nice little lightning-esque ring. That's basically where it all started... hard to say where it went from there, though.

I remember a radial blur, layer duplication, a blur, sumi-e, ... and then stuff got complicated (not function-wise, but trying to flip through options and very small changes that made drastic changes to the overall image). Eventually dropped a fibers in the background, and zig-zagged them...

One adjustment layer on top to try to fine-tune the hue...

Anyway, hope that feeds your curiosity some, and thanks for asking. :)
