"The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity."
George Bernard Shaw
I like it, too! Experimentation is f-u-n! :)
Glad you like it Stacey! I had seen a tip that Dzeni had left on daddyjarbucks blog one time and it gave him a tip on how to make flames into those circles and I thought, wow, that sounds easy enough for even me to try! So I did and made a whole bunch of them and never got around to posting them so this is the first one posted. A big tip of the hat to Jenni! :)
I like it a whole big bunch!
Ooooh, most excellent image! Not sure why, but I've always really loved these circular images. Maybe they remind me of my childhood and playing marbles.
Looks good, Oliviah.I haven't tried it with a Grand Julian, but have with Sphere and Wire. Glad you put this up.
This is really beautiful! I love the colours and the marble looks spectacular. Its really kind of you to give me credit for the tip, but this one is "all you". Great stuff. If you want to try something else, instead of using the "bubble" variant, try the "sinusoidal" variant. It makes very neat square images. Not sure how it will work with Grand Julias though.
I used to have a huge collection of marbles that began when I was hunting for new rocks for my rock collection near my grandfather's house. I found a very old worn out marble and became fascinated with it, wondering who had played with it. This area of town was where a major civil war had been fought. We found things from bullets to belt buckles to cannon balls. The city with it's mansions was burned to the ground, so it was given the nickname "Chimneyville". Parks were made over many of the battlegrounds, one very close to my grandfather's house. I wondered if the marble was as old as the civil war. Human warfare is inhumane, yet it still makes us no less human. That is tragic but at the same time our greatest source of hope.I used to find it annoying the way beauty pageant contestants would simper and said their wish was for "world peace" but this is something I deeply long for it--though History as far back as we know it promises otherwise. I see the current wars & wars from the past on so many different levels, the politics and the pain, the propaganda and the strange nature of mankind throughout history to behave as either shepherd or sheep (with the sheep rarely knowing they have more power than their rulers) the clash of cultures, the guilty and the innocent, the dying, the dead and the ones left to suffer & grieve. Maybe I'm an odd one, but it makes me weep, every news report, every article but I continue to watch and read for one reason--the hope & determination that I will not be ignorant and blind, or become something far worse--indifferent. Maybe also odd because that is what I thought of when I found that old, old marble. The war. Did someone, maybe a child or even a soldier find a place to escape the horrors in a game of marbles. A symbol of humanity.
TC, have you tried it with flames that look like reptile skin? Those are really interesting too. Glad you liked it. :)
Autumn, and I thank you "a whole bunch"! :)
Dzeni, yay, another tip! I'll try that out, it sounds promising. Glad you like it, O Great Teacher! :)
