Variations with Shaped Gradient

Recommended Posts

I never thought that the technique of using the old and a little forgotten effect can cause such interest. Your outcomes point to a many variants usage of this plugin. Thank you for sharing your works in this and other threads.

... I hunted everywhere for those jeans 😋


Great result.  You've captured a lovely satin effect



Thanks! Jitter with a maximum length of 2; frosted glass, crystalize, and stitch at defaults; dents at a very low setting.

This is my new variation of the process using the Shaped Gradient Plugin.
The original canvas was 5000 x 5000 pixels and it took about 2 hours to render the two

layers required to make this image. It was resized to 1920 x 1920 pixels and linked to this thread.

Variant 1


This is great! I tried Variant 1 with hearts (in different sizes). This is my result! I call it "Spread the Love"

@IngridFJ I really like the rainbow one. That looks so colorful yet you made it also softened so its soothing to look at. Reminds me of the fabric tulle.
