Thanks!

I recently discovered this "adult coloring book"...
...that came out wrong...
...I discovered a coloring book with complex geometric patterns, advertized as a stress-reliever for adults. The patterns are made of lines and curves, and the areas in between are to be colored in. They start off relatively simple, with few lines and large areas. By the end, the patterns get very involved (like LexArt's current avatar, but tiling/tessellating).

So I thought, I could get the book and spend all that time coloring...
...OR Filter Forge can do it for me. smile:D

Here are 5 tiling patterns made only of circles. Randomized patterns look good, but I prefer to use a little math in placing the circles, and adjusting the radii so the circles "kiss".

...or something like that.

I already have a patterned dither effect in the library, but there are other methods of dithering, with different results.

Random dithering is another method, using noise instead of a pattern. In FF, we can get (uniform) noise with the script component.

Uniform noise can have "blobs" or splotches that ruin the fine details of our image. But if we use a high pass, we can filter out these blobs, resulting in a cleaner dither. Instead of using the built-in High Pass component, I made my own pixel-based high pass.

In this example, motion blur from my phone's camera and nasty JPEG artifacts get replaced with a nice fuzzy dither. There are only 4^3 = 64 colors in this image!

(Of course, the grape hyacinths have been out for a while now)

...or something like that.

More geometry...

Pick several evenly spaced points on a circle.
Take each point, and connect it to the next point.
You've made a regular polygon.
Now, take each point, and connect it to the second-to-next point.
Looks like a star now... or maybe a smaller polygon...
What if you have lots of points? Can you connect to the third-to-next point? Further?
How many stars and polygons can you make this way?

What if you put them all together?

...or something like that.

Beautiful and well done, like it, although I can not follow the instructions because I have no idea how to make them in FF, but does not matter, is good to see what you have done.

SpaceRay, you can follow those instructions, all you need is a piece of paper and a pencil, and maybe some other drawing tools to make it neater. smile;)

In Filter Forge, my method is:
(0. pick the number of points)
1. Draw a line (I made a special group just for this)
2. Keep drawing (a.k.a. "Loop") lines until you complete the star or polygon
3. Keep drawing (a.k.a. "Loop") stars and polygons until you've done all possible stars and polygons.
(4. Post-processing)

Here, I'll attach a screenshot of the filter editor.
In this example, there are 5 points.
First, the inner loop draws a pentagon.
Then, the outer loop changes the color and pattern.
Then, the inner loop draws a 5-pointed star.
Then, the outer loop layers the star on top of the pentagon.
That's basically it.

The components cut off on the left tell the filter what color to make the lines and where to draw them.

...or something like that.

Thanks Indigo Ray for taking the time to explain it and will see if I can make something, although if it involves the loop component, I still have very low understanding of it and still have to practice more to learn to use it right

Oh, that stuff is lionfish venom! I guess in very small doses it works as a medicine, but... smile:dgrin:
