yep I will be adding other pictures to blend the colors into each other with the knife...

Usually every time I post here there will be included a new fractal to knife up the blends with

so yeah this is a speed thread with Knife in hand of the artist the first palette is the fractal below...

I really like the psychedelica! I have a big thing for colors... pretty!

Merging computer art and hand-drawn-looking art is a fave thing of mine.

that is neat the looping effect I guess my track ball needs a tablet companion but until I get more disk space and new processors I have to wait for the tablet

very nice :)

Hi h92o..........................this is how I did it.............I use the mouse and the knife at full size but low pressure with the edge switched on then just scrape in any pattern you want.................try it!
Here's another one

Best to you

thanks for the inspiring works with the knife I enjoy looking at them...

this source work I did with gimp Fractal Explorer and Artrage where I put a fractal and a painting from rage mixed together them as layers in gimp.

then I did I have to admit take some time with the knife in order to make an image that looks almost like some person perhaps ...

For me i just adjust the intensity of the knife and keep everything else as it was from the initial state.

How did you guys get such juicy paint to work with? I tried copying the first fractal image to my computer, then used it as a tracing image and used the convert tracing image to paint option. The paint was kinda thin and the knife only moved a little around. I still had heart shaped images left and other artifacts too.

Hi jvolkel,

don't use it as a tracing image just load it and start using the knife straight away..........hope that helps

Best to you

What an inspired challenge.

Feel like I'm in a soap bubble floating in a soap bubble world.

Has a bit of the ol' Abstract Expressionists starting to appear in the latest ones.


Careful now, or you might get famous. :D
