Looks softly bent to me, like a soft rug over a couch, just like my crochet rug on couch I'm looking at now. I'm inspired by your design to create one similar, it's very beautiful and I love the banded agate fx. Great departure from the usual presentations of symmetical, glassy & ceramic Apo-fx. I feel I could snuggle up on it & read a good book.
What's up with you? I love it!!!! I just did not know if someone had worked on it before and you noticed it... It sounded so right, I thought I was using a style everybody knew... just how you said it!! And that Banded Agate?? What's that?? Sounds nice.... From now on, I am calling it the Soft Bendy Style!!
Banded agate is a semi-precious stone that comes out of volcanic Thunder Eggs - go Google Images! I have a collection from my mountaineering days. They are totally inspiring. Usually have a crystal-filled cavity in their centre. One of Nature's Wonders & among my Favorite Things.
Any tips on how to achieve this particular style? ZShape, bent & fold plugins maybe? Or is it script-derived? It is most inspiring.
