A really cool pattern. It almost looks like some tattoo. I do wonder how you got there—from whatever photograph you used as a starting point.
Thanks Otto. This pattern was not actually derived from a photograph! I had been reading about the surrealists – particularly Andre Masson – and decided I would experiment with automatic drawing on my Wacom tablet. I then distorted the drawing with a touch of the liquify filter and introduced white, grey and black tones to emphasise the shapes. In fact, the original was a horizontal rather than a vertical pattern!
Even cooler. Thanks for sharing the process.
