    Default Traditional Spiral

    This image was made by blending two rectangles along a spiral path. I don't think this can be done with an art brush.

    Question Re: Traditional Spiral

    Gary, could you provice your blend construction.

    If I see how you did what you did, I will have an Art Brush go.

    Acorn - This would produce even circles that taper. I reduced the tonal range on your fill to minimize the amount distortion.

    On my image I have blended two linear filled rectangles so the spiral also comes forward.

    It is possible to combine two or more linear fills to create a brush that goes both ways. I have used two gradient fills with the Repeating Till fill option.

    Gary, if nothing, i am getting better at seeing these. This last one is a doozie!

    Practice is good. All that activity is just the result of the two repeating linear fills.

    I've also learned over the 25 years I have spent making these images that often less depth is better than extremes of depth.

    Those are the two linear fills I used to make the art brush. I just added them so you can see what they look like in terms of the depth for the stereogram.

    The two rectangles also appear on the depth image.
