Digital Marbling Effects

Everything here, unless otherwise noted, is under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0, links to and motivation for which you can read here. You may also notice use of the Studio LAB logo, which I've written an explanation about here.

I was inspired and took lessons from Inigo Quilez's article on FBMs. I played with distorting the space in a way that at times it look as if you were doing traditional paper marbling. Examples images here. But now with some flexibility in changing colors and also rapidly increasing distortion, I was able to produce some interesting effects.

Grayscale Curling

I used FBM with some simplex noise to produce a sort of curly effect in some of the circles of distortion.

Shifting Cells

This one looks like many different cells together, all shifting about.

Sea Blue and Bubblegum Pink Colors

I warped an image of sea waves, and then a picture of a pink marbled paper so that I could then sample those interesting colors, and then marble and distort them.

Studio LAB Logo Contour Line Marbling

I was inspired by some of the imagery I saw in the excellent 3Blue1Brown video on turbulence, and recreated it partly in the backgrounds of the Studio LAB logo. I started out with black/green colors, like the ones I saw in the video, and then experimented with different pairs of colors as I made variations.
