Energy of the Squall

comets + crosshatch = Energy of the Squall!

One day, I wondered what would happen if I put a comet on a brushed metal background...


April 3, 2002

A word of warning: the JPEG may be especially lossy for this image, due to the detailed crosshatch. The JPEG is far smaller, and came out reasonably well after tweaking the settings...but without the details, there is nothing to this image.


...well, now I know. :) The simple brushed metal turned into a nifty cross-hash pattern.

I've always loved GIMP's Sparks brush, so when my picture wasn't turning out so well, I blew holes in it with this brush. Then I realized it looked cool. Yet more proof that half my images come as accidents.
