A few years ago, the thing that got me into graphic design was signature design. One technique that I learned was to smudge the background and other objects into the image. One of the effects that could occur was that the image would become cloudy. A few days ago, I thought about using the effect to virtually create clouds out of nothing but brushes. After discovering that my experiment worked, I decided to create a brush set out of the multiple clouds I had created. I ended up creating twenty of them. The clouds are between 200 and 600 pixels in width. Enjoy!
I’m a bit behind in posting my c4ds, so hopefully I can catch up by the end of the year. Today I showcase some abstract c4ds from when I started getting comfortable with making them. They are immensely different; they were mostly just me experimenting, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
And as a heads-up, the next set will be in the same style as the last in this set.
Some more abstract c4ds made using similar techniques. Not as happy with this set than I have been with others.
One of my hobbies in Photoshop is to just experiment with ideas and the plethora of tools available in the application. And when you’ve created as many c4ds as I have, you just have to see how you can incorporate a few of them into a wallpaper.
And that’s just what I’m making available for download, today. A “Substance” Wallpaper, using two of my many c4ds, a pattern that I created, and a few adjustment layers. Enjoy!
These three abstract c4ds were made using similar methods. Mainly experimenting with using perspective to create more interesting abstract c4ds.
I love experimenting in Illustrator just to see what outcomes may result. However, my experiments are much more fulfilling if I can share them with others. This simple vector was an experiment with the blend tool. Enjoy.
A few days ago, I went up to Pike Place Market in Seattle for a field trip for a class. While there, we visited the gum wall. I decided to take a few pictures and release them as textures.
More abstract c4ds. Sort of a blue theme, here.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted abstract c4ds. Here’s some that I’ve actually done quite a while ago but have only just now gotten around to posting.
I think I’m getting better at creating smooth c4ds. Here’s some more effect c4ds.
