Don't see the Droste effect here...

author says:

look harder...it's in the entire piece... I just didn't want it predictible

avatar gamemastertips

Sorry, but I agree with CMYK. Even if it IS there, it's extremely hard to see. And I still don't see it.

I think it's stretching the theme, but i believe the droste effect is there.

Even the original Droste took it's liberties (notice the differences in the miniature images and the added on effects)

Taking partial droste effects and then manipulating them into Mobius Strip feels was my goal...

And for those who know my work should understand that the first image I ever made that won a contest was a droste so I HAD to think out of the box... which is where all my work usually resides

I completely agree with you author.. great thinking

i don't agree at all author... those examples you showed to prove your point actually hurt your point... they all have some type of symmetry to them, yours is more chaotic... part of the infinite nature of the effect is it's symmetry...

avatar gamemastertips

I see many strips of lion heads that go on infinitely, but that just isn't a very good representation of the droste to me, whether it's correct or not. Sorry, this is in my honest opinion.

author says:

Once again I used a droste Mobius combination (you can see I could have easily made it into typical droste as remenants are every where) but my goal was other than that.. the samples I showed are showing the PARTS of the droste effect I used to make the image. (It's quite obvious that I know what droste is as to convert this into typical droste would take a few minutes) granted its more recursive.. but that was my goal to scatter droste not make on whole picture of droste (as I clearly could have done) just my Idea (this is fun)

I used Droste ideas to create a Car-touche image with floating droste as method (if you cropped the picture down, you'd have droste all over the place)

Not sure if this fits, not sure if i hate it or disgust it.

Author, if you have to write such a lengthy explanation just to prove people that it's good, then is it really?

author says:

Lengthy???.. hehehe.. I once wrote a 20 page term paper on the relative styles of Blake vs. Matisse (spent three whole pages on hands alone.. LOL) and I wasn't trying to PROVE anything.. just explaining my point of view .. and I never ever said it was good.. art just is (the good part is in the eye of the beholder)

avatar gamemastertips

Yes I suppose you are right. I suppose my eye is just not fit, then. XD
