So the theme for Monthly Makers this month is CHRISTMAS. I love Christmas, but wasn’t really feeling the Christmas crafts this year. So yet again I started the old thinking engine to try and come up with a way to make something digitally. And the only thing I came up with was like winter, ice and the colour blue.
And then a few days later I tried out something called fractal art for the first time. I used Apophysis and Chaotica, followed two tutorials, tweaked the numbers and stuff and ended up with three images that looked like some mix of snowflakes, pine trees and just something frozen. And I was like “that’s the stuff!”. I added some blurry particles/stars in Photoshop, edited the colours and contrast a little bit and then I was done. (It sounds like this was super quick but it took quite a few hours actually. Especially rendering the images. Ugh.)
And so today, on the day of Lucia, I am sharing with you my creations! I hope you’ll create something on the theme as well, and link it before the 20th in the comment section to this post!
