Please don't panic...maintain the control, don't worry.
May happen to have hallucinations, cause may by stress, overwork, somatic disease...

Just relax, modern Psychiatric Asylum are there to help you
...and maybe a recover is not strictly needed,is even possible that the help of a good psychoanalyst ( as me ) may solve...

First better check if you suffer from optical hallucinations

1 A series of distorted ,warped but somehow concentric circles

33 I can't answer because at soon i looked that, i got a epileptic attack


oh well do not worry ,don't panic, take a deep breath, count down from 10 to 1 and relax

1 )a sort of spiral
2 ) a perfect spiral..what else ?
3 ) I can't answer because at soon i looked that, i got a epileptic attack

humm it seems you may have some problem but do not panic, don't worry, just relax

we may take care just we need a few data to find the better therapy...sit down... relax...what you remember of your childhood ? of your first home ? of your first teacher ?
(and BTW do you remember the date of your birth?..and could you write it ?)
HUUMM..no too bad...do you remember the face of your first love? the color of her eyes ?...the address of all your parents ? (and BTW you remember also your address ..and could even you write it ? ..good...)
BUT... :!: ..too bad ...:!:

NO :!: NO :!: do not worry :!:

,maintain the control ...relax...do you remember your aunt birthday?..(Btw do you remember your Mastercard number? ...but i am afraid you have a too damaged memory..you will not able to remember the ciphers to dial...ah you do?..let's check.)

Fine..now is all fine...i may guarantee that soon your fear to be insane will be over..just relax...be quite, don't panic

tomorrow i am sure you will already feel better, your fear to be insane will start to decrease
As temporary side effect you may felt as a bit dumb...but it is part of the therapeutic process
..now just go back home, take this sleeping pills , enter in your bed , relax, and have a nice rest



from Ph.SIGMUND F. HOUDINI



BTW thank a lot for the date of birth, and all the data on your Mastercard !..much appreciated :!:

PS

thank to RobA for this pattern

Posted Image

that and the gradient tool did the trick...and in case you wonder the right answer was always number 2, but that kind of images always create similar effects

And thank to this tutorial easy-and-simple-abstract-background-t46311.html that helped me to rediscover the gradient tool

If you look in the center, it's like the top and bottom lines are moving in opposite directions. Illusions are always cool. Nice work bro.

I've not had a problem with wallet obesity but I know who to see if I do. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the link. That's very interesting about the intended use for the pattern.

I donno, I think 3 was the correct answer a few times, lol.
Fun pictures!
Sorry for any strong critiques, but I like to be critiqued as hard I possible, it's what makes me better, so I try to return the favor, lol.

Rob:

I don't know how to thank you enough for that pattern. It has been so very useful. As you can see, it has provided many with loads of fun and experimentation. I'll be using it often in my caricature drawings, and just this morning I found a new use for it:

Recall the rotating brush I was seeking? Well, now I have my dragon "skin". And all it took was this pattern. You rock!

I merged my gradient layer with the pattern sample, then File-Distort-Emboss, and adjusted Azimuth, Elevation, and Depth using "Bumpmap" mode, and moved the sliders until I was satisfied with the look. :)

I also forgot to mention that had you not brought this up on GIMP Talk, I probably would have overlooked using the gradient effect alongside the pattern. After seeing your examples above and learning this cool new texture process from an old Photoshop tutorial (see Stone Textures Tutorial on my blog) I knew I had my dragon skin texture. You and Rob both rock!

Could you be more specific. You said you merged your gradient layer with the pattern, but what did you do to the gradient layer first?

I love your results but I can't duplicate them.

@Photocomix: I plan to paint my digitally transferred sketches with the textures. I was initially trying to create an effective rotating pattern brush, which Rob A contributed his version on the Registry. That rotating brush works better than most other methods I have tried, but this new texture/pattern technique is far better, in that it gives more depth.

@Oregonian: I didn't think I did anything different than what the gradient tutorial on GIMP Talk provided, other than using linear mode with medium darkness blue and bright green colors for gradient. I ran the linear (no repeats) gradient diagonally from the top NW corner to the bottom SE corner, on a multiply mode layer on top of the actual pattern.

For the pattern itself (keep in mind the 512 x 512 limitation if you create an image over those dimensions) I scaled it at 200%, sharpness at 20 using the pattern scale plug-in. When I was satisfied with how the gradient colors appeared over the pattern, I merged the two visible, before running the Filters-Distort-Emboss in bumpmap mode. Let me know if this helps or not, I might just make that into a tutorial on its own. :)

@Photocomix: This might seem noobish to ask, and partially off-topic, but those kaleidoscopic fractals you create as image links, my question is: How do you make those?

As for textures, patterns, scripts, plug-ins, etc, I'm a sponge. If you ever need room for displaying or offering you pattern/texture sets, I can always create a sub-domain on my server and give you access to it. I'm a total die-hard GIMP fanatic (I may need psychological counseling, if you ask my wife, lol) so the more that's available to use in GIMP the happier I am.
