One hidden power of Shape3D now revealed...

 

Using shape3D (link) with some unusual settings could give some good and interesting results:

 

From scratch and only few steps (3 to 6) you should obtain amazing pictures.

The secret is here:

1. Create/Load a picture with a vertical or horizontal subject (seamless is also better). Of course you should test what ever you want...

 

2. Run Shape3D with this settings (save it as XML to reuse it quickly next time...:Warning: save makes paint.net crash for me) :

3. If needed adjust the result with a little radial blur.

 

4. Go one with more complex combinaison the way you like...

 

Some more samples:

Hexagrid

Julia (I should have made a white or black background layer)

Vibrato

random shape fill (small circles)

The Layer blend mode is also a good way to mix them together and obtain a huge number of possibilities

Enjoy...
