Based loosely on some of the lamps here-
and also on Maxfield Parrish's mazda lamp advertisements.
I could have done a better job on the dithering between light levels, but I'm still very inexperienced with dithering. I kind of like how the light rays look a little transparent to me.
Maybe kind of overdithered, but it ends up having a stylistic rather than clumsy feel I think. It works well with the colors to create an odd and striking image.
While a little rough in the dithering department (like you said), I really like the strong lighting effect you achieved. It's vibrant and fun to look at.
Kinda like the dithering in this piece, actually.
I liked this effect
Yeah it's a tad overdithered. And I don't think whatever you tried doing with the lightbulb worked .. I believe a solid colour would be better for it.
