I like this, How did you do it if you don't mind me asking. This alone looks good, but if you incorperated a backround somehow that could really add to it. ^^

Solace, I did this in Photoshop 7. i started with the custom shape tool that looks like a butterfly. then i changed the outline to be, shall we say..different?then i drew my fractured abstract design in various colors on one side.just flat color at 100% opacity.then , when i was satisfied with the colors and shapes, i started selecting individual colored areas and applying a glass filter in the color of the selection.when all the colors were "glassed", i selected the bkgrd, which was black, and glassed it too.when i try to select the butterfly now,i lose alot of the little bugger.:rolleyes: But heres my attempt at a background...

Here’s one way I can see that you might change the background—use the eraser tool all the way around the outside of the picture zoom in to get the last small unwanted edges.
Save as-- !!!
make a new background and layer the butterfly over the top- I know it will work, now ! how does one do the layers I ask myself--.. my project for tonight, and maybe for a few nights to come..

personally I would like to see light shining through this, stained glass is best when back lit--

I like the quality of the colors against the black background.

Butterfly. I like black so I'm going with the first one. I have a question. It looks like there are more black lines on the left side two wings than on the right two wings. Or is it just me or you want it that way? It's a winner though. Too Cool! Awesome job. :clap:

Alias Art, not sure i want to change it again, think I'll move on to something different. :D

aljec, glad stopped by, and glad you like!:D


Wolverine, i only did half a butterfly and duplicated it and flippedand pasted, so the halves are pretty much identical.However, i did wait to "glass" the piece until it was pasted together,so th lighting profile caused the left side to show up darker than the right. i cannot explain why, i just know that it did. Glad you like!:D

yep...you're right...it's just darker. How much for a butterfly with the black background? It's too cool. WooHoo! :D
