A Close, Distorted Heaven by ChaosFissure A Close, Distorted Heaven by ChaosFissure
Heaven may not always be what you think it would be...

This is a bit of a personal vent thing to clear my mind of a few things that happened over the past week.  



Apo + Chaotica

Its beautiful. The perception of heaven is different for everyone. But this goes out into chaos and discourse. I love it

Awesome picture. As usual. Love the bit of pink in there, it really help the picture as a whole I think.

I love the brightness of it! This is a marvelously created fractal. :D

Thank you :D  I like how the brightness worked out - it took a bit of work to ensure that it wasn't /too/ dark, as small changes to curve settings had a larger effect than I would have liked -- but I ultimately think it turned out very well myself :)

Exquisite! So expressive. Love the gradient you used for this one and the blur is awesome.
Good work and self therapy at the same time.

The gradient was a bit of an experiment - the amount of purple and pink it has often overpowers the other colors it contains, but this particular setup appears to not do so.  I really liked how the pinks and yellows work together in this image, and as I don't think I've really worked with this particular combination before, wanted to do something with it.

Take a structural transform that you like, duplicate it, and both blur the duplicated transform and lower its weight (for instance, use 0.25 weight instead of 0.5).  This allows for the details to still be visible, but have a glowing effect to them when you apply appropriate contrast, brightness, and lighting/curve settings to them.

THX for the good advice, I'm learning each day more from apophysis.

WOW! Your eye for composition is in a class all it's own, seriously....Love the colors and the particle field especially! :heart:

Thank you very much :)  I try to make things in a well-composed way; sometimes I do better than other times, but I try to think that I'm getting better or learning more over time.  Framing can be a real pain as it tends to be based on an individual fractal, so sometimes fitting something within a rectangle can be hard regardless of aspect ratio.

The particles are nothing other than simple effect trickery -- an empty transform at a low weight will create a bunch of dots.  I think I added some blur to it as well to make it more glowy and substantial.

I agree! Framing and perspective are always keys to making a fractal good, much like setting up a photo shoot. And it's a very cool little trick, if I do say so myself. It really adds a lot of character, and it helps convey the atmosphere incredibly well. :)

While I try to make art when I have the time to, the next month and a half is going to be pretty busy so I probably won't be as productive as I have been in the past.
