I was about to start an intriguing caricature to see how profitable were YoannLori's lessons on me and/ or an idea for an Halloween card, but got mesmerized by Bobbi's explorations in weird world of shining, tangible archetypes, so I made a detour towards the unknown and this is the place where ended up ...:eek::confused:;)

I could see this as a decoration on pottery.

Cool!

Blimey is that what coming from the invaders from outer space I don't like the look of their hooked noses :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

Caesar... hmm I like them all ! as each has its own voice... and evokes a slightly different visual sensation a wonderful exploration of symmetry, and textures... an amazing result!...

Yeah, dear DAkey vaguely reminding ancient Cretan art and pottery, especially the last one, appropriately updated with more mycroscopic organic motives ... :rolleyes:;) Thank You!

These blokes look quite disquieting, I grant You, dear McPloos, but their hooked nose may be helpful to You willing to raise and stand from Your chair when Your legs feel a little lazy and dazey. :o;) Thank You.

Thank You, dear BOF! They would be nice cranes if required. LOL:o;)

When I decided to use an out of centre, 7 segments symmetry, dear Gary, I founded ou that the original lines I was drawing in the bottom right sector were replicated differently on the other six. This was interesting and added an appropriate breaking of a trivial symmetry I then further emphasised with an outof centre stellar gradient and a series of little differentiating or symmetry based intervention on lines and little area textures. Finally I only had to trim a little bit lights and darks to give some concentric focus and keep the observer into the picture. The two variants were then examined by two different colors blendings and modes to possibly enhance the basic image. Thank You.

You got a talent for this abstract art too Caesar. Very neat pictures!

I enjoy the impression of light and dimension / distance here. Smiles!

Thank you, dear Tanzenkran (dancing crane in English, isn't it?). Such a comment by You is particularly flattering indeed! Moreover these sort of Moai figures probably look like cranes of an alien universe.:eek::o;)

Hi, my dear Fashmir! Thank you for Your insightful and delightful comment. Actually I can never leave out some sort of realistic perception principle and hint even in my most abstract follies. According to my spirit senses have to complement and integrate somehow the mental vision not to get a schematic, aridly rational outcome which would look like a mere intellectual excercise, not an exciting perspective for artistic fun .... ;):o

Caesar, your explorations toward the unknown are fascinating. Have you tried selecting areas of your painting with the selection tool (magic wand) and then trying the gradient fill? You simply do not know what you will end up with. But it will be fun exploring.

Thank You, dear Bobbi also for Your suggestion! Unfortunately I'm not disciplined to keep a record of everything I try and my age doesn't help anymore to remember, but I'll certainly follow what You say (partially I did here including texture filling of some selected areas according to a vague idea of what should be placed where and why).

Age has nothing to do with it. (at least that is what I keep telling myself) :o Neither does discipline. :p Just keep on playing; that never gets "old". :D ArtRage is simply fun, fun, fun. And don't you enjoy surprises? That is what I have been enjoying while exploring ArtRage. :)
