@helveticablanc Holy crap, these are great! Love the subtle texturing. Also, your use of color is 👌 .
Welcome to Merveilles Eden :>.
@helveticablanc I really like the stuff that looks like text in the first one. Is it a full writing system or is it just there to look nice?
@montagsoup Thanks! It's part of a writing system I'm working on called Celestial Wormrōte. Mostly just a nice, artistic way to obfuscate English sounds.
@helveticablanc That's super cool! It's definitely one of the best looking writing systems I've seen. It manages to be geometric and complex without looking unrealistic, which I think is a really hard balance to strike.
@montagsoup Wow, thanks! I think the key for me was ligatures. Like, I just start combining consecutive sounds and it makes it look 200% better right away! 😂
@helveticablanc Hi Eden, it’s nice to meet you, and welcome to Merveilles! I was following your work on .art for a while. I’m glad you’re here.
@helveticablanc woah. The pieces you attached look amazing! Kind of reminds me of the album cover for Mac Miller’s album Faces. I love that style! Excited to see what you bring to Mastodon!
@helveticablanc How nice to see you here! Small world. 😊 I think your art style is a great addition to this instance, FWIW.
