Look at all those patterns!

Don’t they just do your head in?

Lately I’ve been playing around with patterns in photoshop, working mostly with rotational symmetry (as well as some reflectional symmetry). What I find fascinating about this kind of thing is the way that you can start with just one line/squiggle/shape/etc (see below) and, by copying and rotating this shape around a point, come up with a wheel shape, which can then in turn be rotated again, and again and so on, so as to create ever more complex shapes through this iteration.

I may at some point post the Photoshop actions I have created to automate this process, if anyone is actually interested.

About tobias 'lockhart'

Hello there, I’m Tobias. I’m male; in my late 20s, straight and eccentric. I’m finally beginning to accept that I’m really not your typical bloke; but that’s probably alright. Although my interests are many and varied, my primary areas of said interest tend toward art; fashion and costume; and that which sits or sprawls somewhere between them. I have a Diploma in Performance Technology, Majoring in Wardrobe/Costume; and you might say a Doctorate in being indecisive with post graduate honors in being not entirely sure what I want to do. Welcome to my musings on life, fashion and other things. etc.
