A lot of these are based upon artwork I did in the early 1970s. I always envisioned them as being animated, but you really didn't have home computers & graphics programs that could make animated artwork back then. So I had to wait for a very long time, before technology caught up to where I wanted to go. My avatar should give you a hint of what I've been up to...

So this collection is basicly animated gifs on a large scale based upon my oldest abstract drawings. I like color-cyclying effects, and painstakingly get those cycles to match the progressive distortions I can make with other filters. It is very labor intensive. Most of these run around 600k to 800k. However, you will find (especially in the later pages) stuff that goes way over a megabyte or more. I sure hope you have some kind of broadband connection, because you will need it...

There is also a lot of stuff that is based upon my use of the scanner. Flowers and other objects can be scanned, by NOT crushing them with the dust cover. Also you can set a scanner at a variety of settings, and zero in on very fine details... things you would not expect to see with the naked eye.

I like to call these creations, Moving Mandalas, and it appears that these really are the most popular things people like to view on my website, even though I'd prefer people read my Metaphysical essays...

I also have a backlog of unfinished projects, which I hope to get completed & up on my site, when I get time. Not really sure when that's going to happen, but there's plenty up there right now for you to enjoy.

Nice, man.. those are sweet. I only opened one full-sized, because I'm impatient.. heh. Any chance on a zip file with them all in it?  :smile:

I'm using an ancient 500mhz iMac G3 with one gig ram on OS9.2. Nope. No zip files here...

can you describe the process of making these and what software you are using?

they are very cool. I could see these becoming wide-spread avatars on the shroomery

For the colorcycling effect, I use Kai's PhotoSoap to make a number of different versions of the original pic. Then I take each pic in the color sequence, and progressively use the distortion filters in AdobePhotoDeluxe. These I export as GIF images, and combine them into one animated GIF with GifBuilder.

GifBuilder makes them 256 colors, and I've not found a way around that, since I'd prefer millions of colors.

Most of the sequences are 16 to a cycle, but some sequences are multiples of that. I've also done some work with taking pics of different sequences based on one original pic, and dovetailing them side by side. Those things easily get to 10 megs or more...

As soon as I get a slow day, I'll take a look at my pages, and see if I can put together the next one from stuff I've uploaded but not linked in yet. How's that?
