Hi all. Just discovered this place. I make all of my art in paint.net, so I figured I'd post it here.

It's all abstract, and made from scratch with paint.net. I only "draw" occasionally (industrialism was made out of a scribble), I use distortion effects like dents to get me the shapes I want.

I have a deviantart account here: http://xhin.deviantart.com/ Until I get these hosted on my site, I'm using direct links from there, which occasionally break.

I only use a few tools (no plugins so far), but I've discovered hundreds of techniques on how to use them. I'm separating "generations" by points where I learned and practiced a bunch of new techniques at once.

Hidden Content: The House

A while back, I looked at the somethingawful thread that created the Slenderman

mythos. Basically, you had to take a photo and photoshop it into being something

supernatural. I decided to do this with photos of the interior of houses:

HATE (Technically an abstract, but fits well with the theme)

I have a couple friends that make more traditional drawings. My friend viovis makes

drawings with charcoal, while my friend kristi makes digital drawings. I've improved

(imo!) some of their drawings here:

a digital picture of an island. This was my entry:

Update: Some art I made yesterday, plus descriptions:

Hidden Content:

Matryoshka

(I started with a 32x32 icon I made a while ago, and scaled it up 150% for each successive generation. Matryoshka dolls are those russian dolls that fit inside each other.)

matryoshka.png

Roots & Seeds

(Exploring older techniques; this one is done in the style of second-gen "Jurassic" and "Mandala")

rootsseeds.png

Skygears

(I made a tutorial on how I got these specific shapes; also the zoom-blurred background is the same one I used for Lotus.)

skygears.png

Calligraphy

(Playing around with the same technique)

calligraphy.png

Highrise

(Made by accident as I was messing around with skygears. The shape in the top-right corner is from the same seed as skygears and calligraphy.)

highrise.png

Jewelers

(Trying to replicate the techniques of Highrise, using first-gen "Otherworld" as a base. The shapes at the bottom are, again, from the same seed as the previous three drawings)

Update: I've been experimenting with some new techniques. Using dents sparingly.

Hidden Content:

Birth of Time & Space

birthtimespace.png

Duskdream

duskdream.png

Maelstrom

(A lot of people like this one for some reason. It's probably the contrast of textures.)

Hearts & Diamonds

(Various techniques involving polar inversions and reliefs)

Dawndream

(Not one of my best, imo, but I put a ridiculous amount of work into it.)
