This design was directly inspired by the work of one of my favorite motion graphics crews, romanowsky. The individual piece of theirs that Falcon-Punched me right in the face with a Brass Knuckle of inspiration was this work right here and I wish it had a name, because if it did, my eyes would be screaming it out its name, and asking for a cigarette later. Uhhhng! SO! GOOD!
I keep seeing beautiful gems like this one all over the Tumblr, and each time I do, they inspire me to no end. For this design, I started with trying to reproduce the inspiration almost exactly, but after a short series of “OH HEY! WHAT IF…???” steps away from the inspiration… well, look where it’s at now. I know that this particular output looks nothing like that original inspiration, but I’ll get back to that some day. This is awesome enough to post for now.
I found that I really enjoyed just the background glare layer from my Rainbow Slinky design on its own - so here’s that layer isolated and rendered at full frame. This is also my entry for the gifartistscollective “March/Abstract” design challenge.
