ALPHA.HEX by zilla774 ALPHA.HEX by zilla774
Illustrator and Photoshop CS.

--- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---

Design Notes: (ie me rambling and trying to explain wtf I am doing)

Interestingly all the psuedo 3D stuff was done in Illustrator using the 3D transform filter. After creating a simple geometric shape, I 'sprayed' it onto the canvas using the symbol sprayer and then ran it through the 3D transform. It was originally for something completely different, but after collecting some neat shapes to be used as stock, I figured I'd try making something simple with them all together. Thus this was born.

the colour space reflects the soft, yet geometric flow of the piece.

For once, rather than letting the piece just happen like I normally do (I don't like to plan my abstracts) this time I set up the image with a particular feel in mind. I remade the image from scratch a few times until I was totally happy that I hadn't overloaded it. The simplicity of the hex shapes really worked for me and anything more than what appears on the final image really took away from that and it lost its focus.

what strikes me the the most about this is the great use of light to the left...it really pushes those shapes out..i love your illustrator stuff..some of it reminds me of some work that passes my way from tidytrax records, hey it might even be you who designs em!... if you havent seen any of their sleeves though go check em out...

keep this stuff coming..im enjoying seeing what you come up with next.

COOL ! :D
seems huge. . . and nice space, just pleasing to look at in general.
only thing is down the bottom it seems a bit pixelated, i.e. i can see the lines of colour oh well. . .
Nice piece.

Very nice, reminds me of the asthetic of better dnb flyers; simple colours and shapes repeated to create a complex and unique pattern, much like dnb its self.

Peace

Nice design with the hexes. I really like the color and the entire setup you did. I almost mistook this for 3d studio max work ... Very impressive illustrator design :)

Very impressive piece. Youve managed to do a lot with it for just a monochrome basis. The shapes really look like there zooming out at you. Great stuff!

As you know not a major fan of esoteric stuff but sometimes man yours just grabs me by the ........ :D

This is as funky as f**k, absolutely love the colour, the shapes, the whole 3d thing and explosive composition. Awsome work.

One day I'm gonna learn how. :D
