Geometrics, Shapes, and Designs!

since we have a 'mosaics' thread, and since i just found a new plugin (well, new to me. the xero plugins that danny referenced in another thread), i thought i'd post a recent example of that plugin and start a new thread with it. this is actually a very common theme for 'art' and yet i've not seen one here before. it's not necessarily photo art, but i think that would be ok.

so, the theme here is post one of your own design or create something with something someone else posts. make your own, or alter someone else's. these shld be geometric designs, or shapes or patterns or anything similar.

also, unless you specify otherwise, ANY image posted here shld be with the understanding that someone else is free to alter that same image and post another version of it. so, if you really DON'T want someone else copying and altering yours, just say so when you post it. otherwise, they are all free game

and as danny always says, 'have fun!'.

Hi Craig
Dont think i have understood where you want to go with this thread, but as so far i am the only one having a go, you will have to put up with me
For these i used a photo "hanks Rose" from a previous challenge and the Mehdi plug in Kaleidoscope 2.1 from here

http://www.mehdiplugins.com/english/kaleidoscope.htm
(just in case thank you Danny again ! !)

The only thing is, it is fun and so i have spent some time playing with it

In case some of you weren't aware there is an older thread in this forum entitled kaleisoscopes. You might want to check it out. It has been just a tad more than popular in the past.

Artmatic Pro

Well I use Artmatic Pro (Mac Application) to make interesting movie backgrounds. It is like kaleidoscope on steroids and has absolutely endless possibilities

palms,

that's exactly what i meant. so, yer fine

and to janet, i'll answer your last p.m here. thanks for the link to the kaleidoscope thread. i'm going to leave this thread here as a broader topic than just the kaleidoscope one. this would be for all geometric ar, pattern art, shape art and so on. philbach's example is a perfect one that would fit here, but not so well in the kaleidoscope one. yes, my first example i posted here would have fit very well in the other thread, but my intention for this new thread was for all types of geometric art (and there's a LOT of it out there). the kaleidoscope thread could easily have been a sub thread of this one had this thread existed first.

but, thank you for posting that link. i had not seen that thread before and it's a VERY good one! even got a plugin there and that's always worth a visit

btw, very nice, philbach. wish that program existed for windows too.

Well, mine's not "perfect", but I had fun trying to do a butterfly keildoscope so that you can actually see butterflies and they don't get totally lost in the transition.
