View Full Version : Roots (Mandala)

hy everyone,
I've had some free time to spend with the symmetry tool in AR4, and this is the result :D

mostly Gloop plus some eraser; many layers ... :rolleyes: ... the pearls (stickerspray) were added one by one with symmetry off.
it's called "Roots" because to me it looks like there's some trees or flowers on the outer circle with their roots going inside the center. I hope you like it :)

This is wonderful! It's amazing how everyone makes the symmetry tool work for them in different ways. :cool:

Aunt Betsy, screenpainter, Lindae, Copespeak, Alexandra, Byron, drawing4art, coops ~ thanks so much for your kind comments, much appreciated! :)

Alexandra, I'm looking forward to seeing some of your own symmetry designs :)
Byron, you know that I've always been a fan of mandalas and kaleidoscopes - now I don't have to resort to other software to create those things, yay! :) maybe I should update my Stickerspray Mandala thread (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/showthread.php?42365-Stickerspray-Mandala), I have lots of pre-AR4 mandalas but didn't manage to show them ... :rolleyes: ;)

I like it! Not an absolutely perfect simmetry, since I see some weaker gloop pen outines on the left, which is how realitity actually works maybe.

thank you Caesar for inspecting my painting so thoroughly :)
actually, the lighter borders of the gloop pen (on the top and left side) are there due to the gloop being metallic ... just my guess ;)
