Alright, let’s continue our journey through my creative adventures of 2016.
July pt 2
In July I discovered pixel sorting. I was using apps and stuff for it at first but they weren’t that great. But I kept experimenting and found other ways.
Made this and started selling stuff in my shop.
Kept on pixel sorting! Made what is still my favourite. Blair. <3 For Monthly Makers theme Pearl I made some explosive pixel sorted things inspired by mother of pearl. And then I didn’t really blog all the things I made because I was busy creating haha, but I made Kendra.
September came and I made Gabriella. Still love this one too. Nicole and Kate II. Cecilia was my first attempt at making something that wasn’t dark and space-like. Turned out to be really hard.Took a mini-break from the digital and made a collage for Monthly Makers “Letters & Words”.
And then I discovered generative art using a script in Processing. This was my first one which used very little Photoshop after the script. Started post-processing and changing settings and kind of got there with Ursula.Found the right settings and stuff and really liked Louise.Spent some time in October with three geometric shapes for Monthly Makers “Toys”. Frida was one of the last really dark ones I made.
And then I went full on pastel for a while. Fell in love with pink and purple and just wanted everything to look like cotton candy. Here’s Blossom.
Kept striving for pink with my creation for Monthly Makers theme Metal in November. Pixel sorted pictures of tin foil. Made a new flower book for Alicia’s birthday
Started trying out another digital abstract technique and made these shining distortions. This is Valerie. Joyce.And then I tried out fractal art! Which was kinda hard but fun but too slow for me haha. I made this for the latest Monthly Makers theme – Christmas.
Also made this for my Secret Santa on hitRECord!! Her username was M.anda so I named this Manda. And then at the very end of December I made an explosion. Lorna. Happy New Year, friends. Hope you have a good one.
This isn’t everything, as this post would be far too long. I’ve been pretty productive, but most of all I’m really happy with what I’ve made during 2016. I’m looking forward to seeing what I’ll come up with in 2017. I’m so happy creatively at the moment, and it’s such a great feeling. Yay.
How was your creative 2016? What are your expectations on 2017?
