Stunning work !
I feel completely talentless now, lol.

How long did it take to make and was it all from scratch or did you re-use some elements ?
Theres obvioulsy a technique but i cant quite put my finger on what it is.

Thank you!

Took about 5 hours from scratch -or should I say the whole thing is a scratch. Some objects were grouped and duplicated several times.
Ended up with a 67 MB svg and a few crashes of the visualc++. An hour was to make the design simpler -ungrouping objects to eliminate unnecessary transformations and removing "no stroke" settings woth "stroke undefined". That lead to an 53 MB file...
This sloppy method doesn't really fit with vectors nor it is my usual drawing process, but got to develop something more time-efficient than the regular overproduced-result still under the radar one.
(Like that took days.)

Original idea was to throw something together quickly, and spice things up with stone filters and blending modes, but the latter didn't work.

Great work !

How did you get the perspective so perfect ?
Is it isometric art ?

Thank's!

It was modelled in blender first and traced a rendering of it manually.
Here is the original render.

Sort-of a continuing to the topic (although who would now, doesn't seem anyone rushed joining in on the next one so who would know it's not exactly the same series...),

All done in inkscape, no post-processing or embedded raster images are used.

Thank's!

It wasn't a font. Mocked some tibetan uchen script.
Check here for beautiful examples.


The rest was way more advanced than that (took days). Probably it wasn't a good choice to add if that part gets more focus.

Im sorry if that came across as rude.
I do realize how much effort you put into your filter experiments.

No worries, same thing happened before.
Usually I overproduce the images and they end up having less impact than they could if I wasn't focused on the most "streamlined" solutions but more on the visuals instead.
