Atropos by ChaosFissure Atropos by ChaosFissure
Life, death, all as fragile little strings...but they still can look very cool!

This was perhaps the hardest of this series to work with, as I wanted the strings themselves to be somewhat torn apart by the fabric of time, and getting an appropriate setup to accomplish this took quite a while!

I let my mind roam freely when creating artwork.  I really can't explain how I create artwork as I'm making it, as I take elements I like, try to remove those I don't, and just refine what I have a ton of times over the course of creating any piece of artwork.

In the infamous words of Hannibal Smith:  "I love it when a plan comes together!"

That's literally how my artwork works.  A bunch of ideas here and there come together into a plan, which I then keep on modifying until I'm happy with how things turn out XD

My fractal pieces are always random, like hunting for pretty shells on the beach - can take forever.  Loving your stuff though, lots of "kapow" in this piece for starters.

Here, it won't take forever anymore :D

Silliness aside, it just is a matter of time and dedication - your fractals in your gallery span the duration of one day, while my more recent artwork has been the culmination of roughly four years experience.  While I'd be more than happy to try to offer some advice on things that you might be interested in knowing, it does take a while to learn how a program works and then manipulate it in the way you want to.

Actually, I've been doing this pretty consistently for over four months.  A friend of mine on Twitter turned me on to Qosmic, and I've really grown to love it.  I keep trying to make Apophysis work but it keeps crashing on me.  As for manipulating the program itself, I tend to let random things happen and then sift through the results (or the wreckage, as the case may be) like a beach comber.  I'm not a very methodical person, but I am patient...:)

Fractals, in the grand scheme of art, tend to be very abstract.  Although my own style tends to be very 'representative' compared to most fractals, I love abstract stuff (and representational things too!), and have no issues with it being viewed as such. :D

Where do you get your inspiration? From watching outer space through a telescope? Hope you don't mind me asking.
Reply
:iconchaosfissure:
ChaosFissure Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't mind in the slightest :)

For the most part, my inspiration is entirely based on what is going through my mind when I create artwork.  Music, lingering thoughts, and just the chaos inside my own mind shapes what I make.  Greek mythology and space are two topics that I have pursued a lot when I was younger, so they do have a strong impact on what I do when I'm searching for a theme during the initial construction of my artwork, although anything that strongly affects my mental state (either a space constructed by my mind, or something I feel that I try to filter through artwork) will become the immediate focus shaping how I experiment and explore the artistic space that I am working with.

Generally, I see where my artwork wants to head before trying to limit what it should be.

Sounds like what many artists are noticing too: the "I can't allow my mind to think or else it ruins the process". No? I notice this myself.
Reply
:iconchaosfissure:
ChaosFissure Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is entirely incorrect.  The only part of art where thinking ruins creation for me is deciding upon a framing, because I sometimes go way too obsessive-compulsive with doing so.

My entire mind is engaged in the construction of artwork.  My left brain interfaces with the program I use, while my right brain parses what I see and actively reshapes and modifies what I work on at a highly rapid pace.  For myself at least, it would be silly to say that thinking does not occur, or ruins the process, as I depend on it to find order within chaos and shape it into something interesting.

Well for me it's the opposite. Well probably not: a part of me IS thinking but it's using both my Heat and Mind together. So I tend to go with the flow of whatever is coming at me.

Thanks for sharing what works for you and how you create as your own artist. Well appreciated. :D

When it comes to swimming, piano, and various activities I have done in the past, sometimes it's all about doing what your muscles want to do rather than letting your mind mess up a rhythm.  I can entirely understand this philosophy, and I know it definitely has reason to be employed in a variety of situations, but I personally don't pursue it when creating fractals.

It's relatively easy to take a fractal, make small modifications to the structure, and change the colors to make it seem entirely different.  When I try to make fractals in a series, I do try to make major structural changes to it in a variety of ways rather than trying to keep most things the same.

I think you're one of the artists that make the most beautiful pieces of arts in all deviantART. I don't know why, but each of your deviations leaves me voiceless, they are really stunning. (Plus, I don't have even a single hint of how you can create such artworks, that's really disturbing [in a good way, of course :) ])

I try to have my artwork tell a story, express emotion, or somehow draw myself into what I am creating in an intimate way.  If I could draw massive epic scenes and landscapes as well as I could fractal, I still think I'd be looking to fractals for inspiration, at the very least for effects, if not also for the chaos present in them as inspiration.

I'd hardly consider my artwork the most beautiful stuff out there -- there's lots of very cool and beautiful artwork, but it boils down to personal taste in what any individual likes the most.  I make things that I personally enjoy, which generally are an embodiment of chaos and scenes in my mind, transcribed as emotion, energy, texture, and color in the fractals I create.  Unfortunately, I am not very good at describing how I create fractals because let my mind shape how it works, rather than systematically sketching, drawing, shadeing, etc like one would with a painting or drawing.

Yeah, I know some people don't enjoy this kind of art, and usually fractals aren't my favourite artworks, but your art is really impressive. I just wanted to thank you for the emotions your art wakes in me ; I rarely see artworks such as yours, that can simply make me dive in my fantasy worlds.
You say you don't consider your artwork as the most beautiful stuff, I partially agree with you (there are a lot off wonderful things out there), but I think the emotion brought by an artwork is stronger than its beauty. I mean, there are beautiful things that you just find beautiful and it stops there ; your art goes way beyond the simple concept of beauty.

/incoming wall of text

My own mind needs to constantly be stimulated by something or else I grow restless and bored.  Creating fantasy worlds is something that I can do without much thought, and am able to do in virtually any situation I find myself in, from going between classes to dealing with really boring three hour lectures.

My mind, in these worlds, tends to focus on intensity and action of a scene, and the emotions present in it, rather than stringing together a coherent story.  In some ways, it makes writing out of the question because I would not be able to connect these different scenes together effectively, but being able to condense and illustrate it through visual artwork allows me to take a 'snapshot' of this with much more ease.  My own mind wants to see something that is impressive, and given the mass quantity of artwork I have seen through my life, this generally means that I need to present it in a way that captures attention and emotion to me in an "epic" way.  Unless I am able to add some sort of "soul" or feeling into my artwork in some form, then I find it missing something.

Honestly, I want to use fractals to construct these "scenes" rather than to construct and present a "fractal," if that makes any sense.  I don't care if it's "messy" or "overlaps" or doesn't  look like a fractal because I want to use fractals as 'paint,' the same way an artist 'paints' a picture.

And speaking of which, I would love to do digital paintings of similar caliber to the fractals I create, as then the scenes in my mind could take on a tangible form when I so desire them to; I've wanted to be able to do so for a long time, but don't have the guts to start.  The problem is that I've never been formally taught stuff related to drawing, and feel that it would take eons to even approach what I can already do with fractals.  Really, I'd need a lot of support and help in doing so...but I'd really love to be able to draw characters and scenes at some point too.

I really understand your point of view. I also do not encounter any difficulties when I want to create fantasy worlds in my mind ; I've always done that, since as far as I can remember, to escape reality when I feel bad, I kind of need my imagination to live. I've created so many different worlds and I've always wanted to draw or paint them, but it just doesn't work. They're all beautiful in my head and they suck on paper.

You are lucky to have fractals to express yourself, but I understand your will to know how to draw. I can't count how many times I imagined a wonderful picture but I couldn't draw it. Not only that my drawings aren't specially beautiful, but there is such a lack of emotion in my works that I can only throw them away and go back to my dreams (which are the only beautiful things I seem to be able to do).

But your art really catches the eye as well as the heart, that's why I love it so much. And I think it's one of the advantages of abstract art like fractals. Concrete art can be really stunning and beautiful, and I do appreciate good paintings and drawings, etc. But with concrete art it feels like we're trapped inside the painting, they don't give our minds enough freedom ; we can see the artist's fantasy world, that's all. We cannot take these paintings at heart (of course, there are some exceptions, but that's not the point). The point is, that abstract art stimulates just enough our mind to let it express him by himself. I mean, the colors and curves and all in your artworks are like a tunnel which leads right to our imagination. That's what is precious in your works ; they are the expression of your mind but they let us enough freedom for us to grow our own emotions.

Part of the reason I enjoy abstract artwork is because I don't need to get tied up with representing every detail in a convincing way, and in the case of fractals, it sometimes it's just virtually impossible to represent things literally.  This also makes interpreting artwork possible to do in a variety of ways as well, as people tend to interpret things in the way they find the most interesting.  Even if I could draw, I would still make fractals because I do have an inherent love for abstract art and fractals :D

Three years ago, if you told me that I'd be making things like I am now, I would not have believed a word of it - there's something significant that can be said about perseverance and dedication.  I always had found fractals as a medium to be somewhat confusing to work with, and sticking to commonly-utilized styles didn't offer me enough personal freedom in exploring the medium of artwork.  I always wanted to make things that were unique in style, or rather, allowed me to explore and experiment with the medium in a way that I could actually enjoy.  And I guess in an odd string of events, I not only was able to do that, but then take it to what it is now.

In my opinion, much of art is understanding what you enjoy doing and working with, and then messing around with it and seeing how it evolves over time.  Just keep trying a bunch of things that you find interesting!
