Relative Tranquility


Something I made over a year ago.
I really wish I could remember how I made it...

Conveniently sized for 1280x800 monitors, but as long as "fit to screen" is enabled, it still works.

i was like this is awsome, then i look though the rest of your stuff and find i scouted you. Win

Overall, pretty nice.

I recognize a few of the filter effects, but not enough to discern how this might have been made to look so nice. The only part I don't care too much for is gray blotch on upper portion of the sphere. Although it could probably be resolved by playing with the hue/saturation enough.

The background is a nice touch as well.

To tell you the truth, this was one of the first digital artworks I made, and thus was part of the whole "click filters and get neat effects" stage of my art method. Still, through some fluke (and hopefully, a tiny smidge of skill on my part), this wonderful work was born. There's probably a great deal of things that could be improved, but frankly I'm happy enough with this one as is. :)
Plenty of other things I've made which I have, or wish to, redo. :P

Thanks for the kind words and helpful review, at any rate!

MarshmallowGherkin responds:

Thank you! :D

If I can contribute even the slightest to that spark of magic, I'll have done my work here on earth!


you should try making an animation with this effect just a short simple loop though

MarshmallowGherkin responds:

as awesome as that would be, I have no clue how I would go about doing something like that... :(

This REALLY caught my eye...

Awesome, I think I'll use it as a background... awesome work :D
