Tunnel Vision – Part 2

So, how did I get to the above image from Part 1’s Final Image? Read on…

Tunnel Vision - After 2

Tunnel Vision – After 2

 

I opened yesterday’s final image in iColorama to play around. To start I tapped on Form>Tunnel>Preset>5/15. After seeing the result I made changes to Zoom: 0.20 and Lightness: -0.17, and got this effect…

Form>Tunnel>Preset>5/15

Form>Tunnel>Preset>5/15

 

After tapping on Apply to commit the changes and Save (for just in case) I played around with a few more of the Form sub menus before settling on Form>Tiles>Preset>6/22. I made adjustments to

  • Zoom: 0.70
  • X Center: 0.32
  • Y Center: 0.17

 

While I liked the design in the center, I didn’t want the solid background around the circle; I tapped on the Shape Mask, then New, then Invert and my final step for the mask was adjusting the Blur Radius to 0.33. My design now looked like this…

After tapping Apply and Save, with the mask still in effect (area outside the circle) I went to Effects>Raise>Preset and finally chose 5/5. I lowered the Opacity to 0.75 and kept the other settings at their default value(s).

After tapping Apply and Save I then used Effects>Pixels>Preset>10/32 and adjusted the Size to 0.66.

It was now time to bring back my center piece. I tapped on the Shape Mask, then New, then Invert and then I adjusted the Blur Radius to 0.30. I now had this look…

After Applying and Saving I went back to Effects>Raise>Preset>5/5. I then made the following adjustments:

  • Opacity: 0.81
  • Size: 0.76
  • Lightness: 0.70
  • X Position: 0.40
  • Y Position: 0.53
Effects>Raise>Preset>5/5

Effects>Raise>Preset>5/5

 

Happy with the outside I tapped Apply then Save and went back to my Shape Mask and tapped on Invert. I then made the following adjustments:

  • Opacity: 0.60
  • Size: 0.73
  • Lightness: 0.84
  • X Position: 0.67
  • Y Position: 0.25
Effects>Raise>Preset>5/5 applied to the center piece
