No, a "caustic" in the light-through-glass effect: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caustic_%28optics%29

Ah; and the trick that I used, believe it or not, is to Copy viewable and place it under the isolated marbles itself (the viewable is the marbles and background) duplicate that result and set the upper one to color and then run lylejk stencil (thanks again to David for keeping this for me) followed by direction motion blur (I like using 235 degs) and reduce Opacity to taste. I included an XCF for those that want to see a quick example of what I'm talking about. :)

edit: Oh yea; best to Gausean blur (10 should do it) the lower layer after motion blur; forgot to do this for this example (and am not re-uploading; lol). :)

edit: arghh; forgot to add the drop shadow using the isolated layer too. Darngat. lol

:)

OK folks; secretely, I've really never stopped playing with marble renders. Didn't want to start another topic so appending on this one. I was approaching the squeeze the wrong way when I was using LqR; I now do it in Inkscape (grow the voronoi circles); keeps the distortion down to a minimum as well as a lot of other advantages (such as use of Mother of Pearl texture; blended the result in GIMP of course. Still, I used G'MIC's Shape average on a non-squeezed voronoi result as well as G'MIC's morphological filter to spread it out for colorizing with the MoP textured marbles. Added a few extra G'MIC tricks to add even more glaze (Local Orientation). :)

And this one's for those that like the striped type marbles. Made them all the same size too. :)

Just as a follow up, I just took this picture a few minutes ago. I admit it looks pretty ragged. Dad said let it die already. lol

It is now 39°F (should have taken it inside last night; will do so tonight since it suppose to hit freezing). :)

maybe you can keep it alive all winter, then in the spring trim it way back and repot with fresh soil and see if it will renew itself.

Just put the plant in the forier since it suppose to get freezing tonight. Next few nights suppose to be quite cold here (low 30's). I'll keep it alive as best I can for as long as it wants to fight 2-ton. :)

What a coincidence Lyle here it's nearly 39 degrees centigrade, my plants are dying from heat stroke :roll: .
