I’ve really been getting into combining flower images with glitch filters. They seem to go hand in hand – something about the organic nature of the flower, fed into the hyper techno random filters of the Decim8 app – I always end up with something interesting.
I also started layering geometric patterns on top to increase the glitch potential, and in the process the end result has a fun 1980’s look to it.
This was created using both the Procreate and the iDraw apps. I love painting in procreate; the range of brushes and the ability to blend things very easy makes it one those relaxing zen kind of activities. The only thing I ever found missing from the app is the ability to make hard-edged shapes. No surprise there, as it is a pixel based app. iDraw, on the other hand is vector based, so you can create whatever shape you want, copy it to the clipboard and import it as a layer in procreate. You then set the layer to “alpha,” which locks in all of your pixels, and the nice smooth lines are preserved.
