    great use of the software dude! nice custom shapes and I love you doing it in inverse!

    one comment only: It would be great to add more details to specific areas where you want to put the focus on. I mean after you finished your character / face / composition just switch to simple speedshapes or other basic tool without symmetry and add `random` bits and pieces. It would make your artwork more unique and interesting.

    I am totally snowed under with work recently, but I hope we could catch up on the alchemy forums when I could manage to do some new stuff hah!

    awesome shapes man, however I´m not buying into the perfect symmetry. try adding bits and pieces in focal areas like mr. m suggested to break up the sterility of the design.
    otherwise, your approach blows me away sir, good stuff

    Alchemy is a great program for generating textural concept starts...at least for me. I've never really finished any of my pieces within it. Probably should try one for kicks. These look really cool.

    Alchemy is fantastic for generating random shapes that spark the imagination. You take it from there. I've not used it to finish a piece but it's fun to see what kind of forms and silhouettes that emerge with it. I don't see Alchemy as a weakness because it serves as a tool to spark the imagination, not end it. No matter what tool you use, it will only be as good as the imagination that drives it IMO.

    I've used alchemy to set some create juice, but did you do all of your stuff in Alchemy? Just a little curious....

    Yes, some people will suggest that you go to certain sites to download premade vectors. Which you may have to save again as a pdf. But, I suggest you make your own vectors. There is a shareware program called Inkscape. It has a feature called auto trace. And that will trace the image for you and turn it in to a vector or paths. This creates a lot of paths which means a lot of memory. You might not care. Then save as a pdf. And then put that in your shapes folder. When I tried to download pre made shapes for alchemy. I usually had it to save them again as a pdf anyway.
    Tracing the shapes again with the pen tool in Inkscape would create shapes that took up less memory and Alchemy would run quicker.

    I suggest solid black shapes. Industrial silhouettes.
