The basics building blocks of this image, which may remind some of the effects of an “explosion filter” is instead completely based on layering, manipulating the angles by hand and putting in color (the original being black and white), also using filters like paint brushes. One could call it “painting with filters”, which is quite different from “applying filters” in the way those filters should be used. Most of what I am doing makes no sense in terms of what things are meant for, like using sharpening and softening filters one after another a dozen times and so forth. If an image like that is finished I have used so many filters so many times and combined the most improbable stuff, including layering, many times, so that there is no way to recall and I don’t want to. Because the next time around, no matter how impressive some result may look like, I want to start completely anew. And I like to make things deceptive, so it may look like a certain filter being used, but if one would try to copy it, the imitator will soon know better. The title was taken from H.P. Lovecraft (“The Call of Cthulhu”)
