This is beautiful!
thanks Maplewood! hee hee - I confess I'm far too lazy to color each pixel by hand! Once I got the blocks to repeat perfectly from the original scan (THAT was the surprisingly hard part!) I just selected the white blocks and erased them, selected the green blocks and put them on a separate layer, turned what was left (blue blocks and the lines between blocks) into a black and white photo. After that I increased the contrast on the layer until each pixel was either black or white, playing with the brightness at the same time until I got the look I wanted. Then used a paint bucket to fill all the black pixels with contest-purple. Then I went to the green layer and did the same thing to it but used contest-green. So after I spent hours digitally moving the blocks around to fit into a repeat, the whole recoloring thing took maybe 15 minutes tops! ;o)
This is beautifully done! I used single pixel width white grids to soften mine, and it was very tedious. Can't imagine how much time you must have put in coloring individual pixels. Mind boggling!
thanks Cean and Rhonda and Lucinda!
Very nice. I like how you softened the colors.
Your elegant geometric design is lovely in these softened colours, Kelly!
I love how much more calming and gentle you've made the colors with your alternating pixels. Very cool!
thank you Jay and Shelley and Veronica! One of the cool things about these competitions with "impossible" color schemes is that we can't rely on the colors to make the design work - we have to learn to be good designers. I've been amazed by the beauty of what I've seen already, before the contest even starts - wow! It's going to be a fun contest.
Nicely done - & here I thought this competition's prompt was impossible! Way to go!
Oooh, I like it...it's so quilt-y!
