Re: Abstract Fun

Oh, what fun... Brilliant concept and great find!

Since I have a custom Brushes palette the action bombed each time it tried to select a brush I don't have, but no problem. I just picked an available brush, applied strokes and clicked Play to proceed.

On mine I colored it via a color spectrum Gradient layer set to Overlay.

I'll be playing with this one for awhile!

Re: Abstract Fun

The colour gradient is a brilliant idea looks great( of course i tried it ) also added the custom filter to this one It has crossed my mind to wonder how it works, but you know what I am not going to look and just enjoy it

Re: Abstract Fun

Still messing around with this tried different colour for the background instead of black but it reverts to black, but for the doodling i have used different colours and that works ok

the lilac on this spells palms cool isn't it.

Re: Abstract Fun

This is way better than fractals and so open to original creativity. I can't wait to try this. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Abstract Fun

Not so much abstract as downright surreal methinks
So with that thought, how could I not have a try at it.

For the colour used a gradient map and set blend mode to colour.

Thank the lord it hasn't turned out looking like a frog eh Palms?
