Duotone Mandala 1

I now have to go back and convert all my solid black images to the duotone layered images. So far, I have 3 completed which is enough to do a mandala for a t shirt. The bottom image is of the new mandala using black silhouttes. The next one shows the black and gray duotone version.
While the duotone approach adds a level of detail and interest, I think it takes away from the pattern of the monotone black. I would appreciate some feedback on which you prefer.
Once the duotone layers have been created, it is a simple matter to colorize them any way one wants. The third mandala hints at the possiblities. While I don't consider it a usable design, it does demonstrate some interesting potential.

  1. My initial thought was that the colorful one looked really good. It adds dimension to it and contributes to the kaleidoscope appearance. It appeared to actually move a little when I looked at it. Or it may just be the 14+ hour work day today. :)
