Hi, all

I was afraid of trying this tut a few months ago. Now, I don't know why I was.

The outcome is terrific. Thanks MadJik.

Madjik, great image.

It looks alienistic (this is good because I love science fiction). :) It is also magical (not magic - Madjik all). ;).

Wow, fine job.

Design rating: 10/10 :)

Process rating 3/10 :(

Inspiration rating 10/10 :)

You really nailed it with the design and giving inspiration but in my opinion the process to get thick enough black lines was frustrating. Madjik, please get a newer version of hexagrid and edit your tutorial.

With the version I have the black hexagons don't turn out as thick as yours with the same settings.

Sorry, if I am blunt.

Conclusion

Great job overall, Madjik.

Wow, I love how intricate that is when really it isn't all that complicated. I'll be using this, I'm sure!

Edit: I created the example almost exactly, then flattened it.

Then I duplicated the image, ran the "twist" distortion at 20 and 5 on the top layer and -20 and 5 on the bottom one, then set the blend mode to difference.

I thought that looked awesome.

Truly, it looks awesome.

Awesome technique! Here's my result after playing around with some parameters (not zoom-blurring that last layer, for one thing):

I made this so long time ago to the point I'm surprised that I ever made this, thank you Madjik (and the past me, you're great).

Unfortunately, Loaka hasn't been online since september of 2007 and likely won't be back to write a tutorial (probably forgot his/her steps by now)

Try the steps david.atwell used in the post above the one you quoted, then play around with it from there. Maybe flatten, then duplicate layer, polar inversion, and change the layer blend mode. Use color tint to change the color maybe.
