Image Umbrella: Abstract Images

Recommended Posts

From what I can see Oma that is an excellent picture it looks like a butterfly pendant of some sort. Very effective use of blurs. I probably couldn't find anything to improve that if I tried.

Sharp as for yours I would see if you could brighten it up a little make it look like there is some sun like hope being reborn i guess is a good metaphor for your excellent ice cave looking thing. Since you made something that good I assume you know how to do that. But for those of you who don't know how to brighten up an image here is a short tutorial.

1. Add a new layer above your image

2. Fill it in with white

3. Set Blend Mode to overlay

I am sure there are better ways and more effective ways but this is the simplest method I have been able to discover. This way newer Paint.net users can benefit until they are more experienced.

(Anonymous) Excellent Job Malazar. That is really abstract because I have no idea what it really is. :lol: You did a nice job of placing many elements and plugins into it and making it extremely abstract. I applaud you

Nice abstract Malazar, very bright and psychadelic. As for why no one replied to your last post, generally the last post on a page doesn't get much attention :wink:.

Oma:Here's that tut. As you can see, I didnt follow the tutorial very well :P For the first part, I just did some black and white gradients, all on new layers set to difference. Avoid using the radial gradient, doesnt work too well. Flattened and flipped a few times too. Then I did waves plugin on new layer set to lighten, and I used dents once I think. Once I was done I coloured it.

sorry not ignoring you just haven't had a lot of time lately. I tend to spend more time looking in personal galleries that's all. and when I post here I tend to just comment on the one directly above mine or on ones that I've been noticing someone taking a real departure from their comfort zone and attempting very complicated pieces.

so lets see what can I say. this last one I'm not fond of it. I like the previous one with the gradiants and the swirl going into the middle much more. That one was more visually appealing because of the colors, and the gradiants. It has more movement and depth than this one.

I always look but don't always comment. :wink:

ciao

Malazar , don"t say that please you are not ignored , me and I think every one here I am sure had seen your work but we are still try to find some thing special, but let me tell you a trick or lets call it a secret.

Do you know that the connection between the viewer and the image which is before his/her eyes can be made much stronger? How ?

:idea: The time, yes the time , more time that the viewer spent looking at an image means the viewer has found something special, so he/she will keep looking on that thing to discover what is the reason that he/she reacted to it, so at this point he/she will find a lot of things to say and try to transfer them to others and the first one of those others is the owner of the piece.

:idea: :idea: The relationship between the time been spent from a viewer is a direct relationship with the time that a drawer been spent on his/her drawing.

As a myself example sometimes I change a one inch simple line about 10 to 20 times not just because I don't like it but because I respect the viewers eyes and brain ...!

:idea: :idea: :idea: And one more small meantime important thing, the title of the drawing, try to find names to your images, :) viewers want to know how the brain things and how it gives order to hands and eyes.

I hope that what I said is correct with my little English and apologize if there is any mistakes.

Thanked GOD we have PDN in between our hands to make life easier.

I call this abstract Firestorm.

firestormen0.png

As you can see the blue represents a hotter fire than the red and in the center where the white is that is the white hot intensity that razes buildings and destroys cities. Muahahahahahahaha. I mean I don't want anyone to die I just wanna see a city fall. Is that so bad? lol

I needed a lava background for another image of mine... and I think it counts as abstract... Lava can't really do this...

Lava_Surfs_up__by_vresikon.jpg

Anyway... I made it by conbining a fire tutorial I read a long time ago, and a tutorial for an exploding planet (also not mine). With some modifications of my own... of course. I'll provide a link to them in my gallery (as soon as I make one...) once I find it.
