Original Poster Proj 4

I experimented with various geometric shapes, even at first using the above shape tiled straight across the page...which turned out to be too busy too murky too just...ew. I fell back on this design, making the shape in illustrator then moving it over to photoshop. Let me tell you once you start dealing with 18+ layers with blending modes, it only takes 1-2% to throw EVERYTHING out of wack and lead to 20 minutes of additional work.


  1. The cubes are very nice, I like them better than the "shards". Yes it is quite difficult to deal with lots of layers all in blending modes that keep affecting the whole thing down from the top. I wonder if there is an easier way to manage all of that. Folders with blending modes help for somethings but it doesn't work the same as blending modes on individual layers.

  2. I tried using folders but theres no real way to easily decide which layers go where , and the order is also critical. I am sure there is some way to do so, but at the moment that is beyond me
