It doesn’t really seem like that took you very long. They’re images of the effects you can use in multiple programs, not a lot of effort.

Not really, the last one took me around 5 hours, it wasn’t an effect. That one I had to make manually.

Did you make the images yourself or did you just tweak pre-exisitng images?

I made them myself.

So they are made from scratch then? They’re neat but they look muddy and dark. Maybe if you tweaked your colours and made the reds, silvers, grey and what not stand out more via shine, saturation or something like that it would enhance them visual a lot more.

If feels a bit like you’re playing with software more than trying to create a specific, intentional image. The heart is the only one where there’s any representation at all.

I sort of agree with TWA. I am reasonably familiar with Photoshop and can identify the exact tools I would reach for within that program to re-create the type of images you’ve created. I see “Twirl” and “Smudge Tool” and “Find Edges” and so on.

That’s my critical impression. You asked what you might be “doing wrong.” That’s a difficult question when it’s not clear what the context is for these pieces. Are they meant to evoke an emotional reaction? Are they wallpapers? Or backdrops to a CD cover? A little application would help when considering if they’re effective.
