swiggidysquirtle: I have to ask, how do you filter over you hexel stuff to make it just look so beautiful? like, im very satisfied with the way my stuff turns out, but in the same, it feels a little plain, software names are helpful too :) Anyway, thanks!
Hi! One thing I always do is tweak the colors using a gradient map and layer effects. Here’s a pretty extreme example:
On the left is the raw output from Hexels for this piece. I brought it into Photoshop and used a gradient map set to soft light to get the colors on the right. I then added some texture with my new favorite brushes (I have a texture tutorial here) and added animated elements in Processing.
Hope that helps! I also have a post with more gradient map examples here.
