Image Umbrella: Abstract Images

Recommended Posts

It's amazing text Max, but how is it abstract? :?

It's an unrealistic image? You know like Escher. I thought this belongs to the abstract section.

Lol, the only similarity I see with M. Escher up till now is the initial of the name :D

Don't you see the impossible perspective?

If a weird perspective makes an Escher wait to see my next cartoonish image... lol, that will be a real masterpiece! :wink:

I really liked the "Echo" imprint design of the HP tx2000z tablet PC, but I'm not going to buy a $1000+ computer just for that. So, the second alternative was to make a skin with that design and paste it onto my existing laptop. Unable to find a suitable image to cut out, I decided to trace a blown-up picture. It's not perfect, and I added a bit of my own, but here's the main idea of HP's "Echo" design.

Done completely with the Circle, Line and Paintbrush tool. Except for the brush in the top right corner. Sized down from 1600x1200.

Topezia, I think that would go better in the "Realistic Images" Section. Quite good, however.

Max Power I am confused. I would call this an abstract. It is Escher's 'Waterfall' 1961. Was it altered in someway?

Topezia that is definitely strange. Someone is going to have to save that bird.

Wow, that would make an excellent brush! :shock:

jenettsue, he didn't recreate the black and white piece - that was just his reference. He created a text picture on the previous page.

Very very weird. But not in a positive way IMHO. How are those 3 thingies...???? able to watch her (????) the windows are in the same direction? Or are they able to look in curves? A new attempt of the theory of bending light?

Duh! I guess I should read previous post first. Thanks for clearing that up. Max Power does do wonderful text pictures and he has the best avatar. Well, one of the best.

@Max: I believe I can see windows in the back of her house.

@Overkill: A brush? I guess. But the PDN CB plugin has this annoying habit of downsizing brushes to a certain size and then resizing them when you want, causing them to be blurry. I think a Copy/Paste would be best in this case.

Those 3 thingies how you called them if you watched with more attention without the urge of rushing to criticize are 3 portraits hanging on the wall (granpa, gramma and himself as a child, that were intended to be fun and are funny i.m.o.) and yes there's a rear window in her apartment and yes cartoons do not normally respect the laws of physics as Vile E. Coyote taught us all.

@ Crimson - I really, really like the 'Echo' design. Do you mind if I copy 'n' paste it to have a mess around with it ?

@ Topezia - that is quite surreal :? ( Any plans to make it into an animated gif ... now you see them, now you don't, sort of thing ... :oops: )

Playing around with cjm's Chain Tutorial and adding some distorts and effects to the links, this was born:

Not sure whether to call it The Eye 'n' Cross or Cross Eyed ... or just delete it :|

LFC4EVER: That's cool, love the colors!

Welshblue: No, never thought about that, like the chain and the silver medallion (like a bit less the eye)

Thanks Crimson ... I've got a few ideas to try with it.

@ janettsue :roll: ... I never thought about cyclops ... although I am wishing I hadn't put the iris in; I think I'll change it. (If I've still got the file)

@ LFC4ever ... that is pretty cool mate. Very, very smooth lines.

<< Resisting really hard to say something about LFC getting shot down in flames by the end of the new season, RE your new sigg>> (ooops, not hard enough :wink: )

@ Topezia ... I thought WOW when I saw LFC's image - then I saw yours ... definitely a Triple WOW
