Project Educate and LooniesHey there I promised to make a loonie every day from monday to today in the spirit of Project educate.Project Educate and Loonies by piethein21
This journal is not really a tutorial but more an illustration of how you can use loonie in various ways as I tried to show in the last week submissions.
So lets get started
First up the one from Monday
This is the most easy one to make probably. Once you did the tutorial I made (and linked in the artist comment) you should be able to make this. Just to make a variation on the theme I used linear on the loonie to make room for the julian band (high power).
A less common way to use loonie is displayed int he fractal of Tuesday
It is used as a bubble by putting linear -1 , loonie 1 and some blur all on the same transform. I like these kind of bubbles and wonder why not many other people make them. So go ahead and try . Other then that this julian is very basic. the only thing different from the most basic julian is the fillin

I will be using my own fractals as examples, not because I think they are the best of the best, but rather because there is criticism to do, and I would rather not inadvertently hurt anyone's feelings by taking their own fractals as examples.
Point #1: Colouring

What is wrong with this? Contrast and balance. The former is exaggerate; the latter is nonexistent. Just to name one, the purple areas stand out too much overall, compared to the other colours; it's as if we had nothing else at all. The yellow at top kind of stands out too,
