You have some really cool stuff in here. Sundream, bridge to infinity, seascape, sky confetti, and portent are among my favorites.

Thank you, welsh, barbie and sharp!

I've (finally) been playing around with some paint.net plugins. Some of them are extremely useful.

Enlightenment

I didn't use any plugins in this one.

A great bunch of lovely abstracts!

In some places they are a bit scratchy/jaggy. If you work on a canvas 4 times the finished size & then reduce the fianl, you will overcome this problem & your work will look even more polished.

I really love the way you've achieved a glassy, translucent feel to your images.

Earth Jewel is my favorite. Nice job. :)

I can never get those kind of results when I do abstracts. My mind works in symetry (sp?), so abstracts are kind of difficult. Nice work. ^_^

I haven't updated my gallery in a long time, nor have I made any art for the last couple

months (though I started again yesterday with gen 29). It took me a long time to sort out

all the stuff I made. The "Generation" label is kind of useless now, so I might switch to a

style-based gallery soon (since I keep revisiting really good styles, and it really describes

my collective body of work better). Anyway, here's me doubling the amount of

generations that were here before (I'm sure I've posted some of this before, but I missed

a couple ones):

These aren't necessarily in chronological order (although the generations are at least), and

I stopped naming them at some point, so in those cases I give a generation number,

followed by the number of unnamed ones, like "16-1". I'd like to fix those issues at some

point, but it's not a priority.

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:

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:

There was a photomanipulation contest on a site I frequent where you have to manipulate

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

Too many to comment on. Excellent body of work though. Great use of the kaleidoscopes and some wonderful blending here and there.

Not sure on the improvements to the charcoals, but that is something you have to be careful with else you destroy the original hand in them.

Thanks for taking the time to share them up.

Thank you, delpart!

I *really* like this style. Very easy (takes about ten minutes per piece, most of that figuring out how to make them varied), diverse (one good thing about using effects that have "randomize"), and colorful without sucking. I might make a tutorial at some point.

I am in awe... I believe you have single-handedly convinced me that abstract graphic art is... beautiful :P

Your latest work is possibly my personal favorite too :) i like the soft background colors, and i like #2 and #4 the best simply because they are asymmetrical.

It's all amazing. you should definitely make a tutorial (although you might have made one by now). :)

Wow. The pastel-like abstracts are stunning! They're extremely beautiful. Great job. I'm really sorry I haven't commented earlier.

Bit of an update here.

 

At some point in 2012 I rebranded, moved everything to a facebook page, sorted my art by style rather than date, and also that was 2 years ago so a lot has changed since then. I'll probably re-organize my page at some point, but in the meantime I'm just going to post my art here again.

 

My art now is a combination of abstract, surreal, and highly psychedelic/geometric styles.

Hi Xhin,
Great to see you posting images here again!
Love the latest ones, good range of colours and textures and always a challenge to try to work out how you made them too! ;)

Your abstracts are incredible! For some reason, I would think that if I were a bug and caught in a Venus fly trap, that's how I would see it from the inside. Wow!

Jumpin' jellyfish - I can't believe that I hadn't seen your work before :/ .  Your work is amazing and sooooo beauitiful.  To name just a few that have 'blown me away' are: Enlightenment/Julia Encore/Pendent/Drop, etc.  Wow - the results are stupendous and I hope one fine day you can give us a tutorial or two :) .
