Phantom Bishop by ChaosFissure Phantom Bishop by ChaosFissure
Some say it was a holy cleric who grew tired of preaching peace, while others very strongly doubt it ever had good intentions.  Irrespective of its prior background, it seemingly has one goal - to destroy wandering spirits it deems unworthy.  It has continual engagements with the Phantom Guardians, who find that it is overstepping its bounds, since they believe that no one spirit should have the sole right to judge which other spirits are "worthy" to remain in the world.

When working on this, the depth and space drew instant parallels in my mind to another piece I had created, and suddenly, even more lore was formed!  See this:

Hoooly crap, that is incredible. How long does it take you to do stuff like this!?

Honestly, the time can vary wildly from image to image, but I'd estimate six to ten hours to create something from start to finish. Once the groundwork and framing is complete for a single fractal, I'll explore it for another few hours (or days...) to see what else it can do.  For example, the last five pieces of artwork I created are based on the same fractal -- and it took a few days to get something useful from the initial set of shapes I had, but once I had a cool ripple/distortion/energy effect going, I wanted to see how much I would be able to do with it.

I appreciate the kind words!

The silly thing is that art is nothing more than a hobby for me.  I do software dev full-time, and art's something I do to relax during the week.  I'd love to have a job that lets me work both with art and software development, but .... such a thing is not easy to find, as I don't want to be doing webdev either :o

Man I here you, I still got a long ways to go before I'm at the level you are, but I think it's a pretty great hobby all the same

As if the art itself wasn't good enough, the lore makes it even more fascinating

Thanks, I'm glad to hear it :D  Sometimes, lore is more forced than other times, but I think that it worked pretty well in this case!

Magic, smoke, and mirrors! ...uh, fractals!  This is a piece of fractal artwork created using Apophysis and Chaotica.  If you want an example of my workflow, I suggest checking out www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHdf8j… !

I like this one very much, the curvatures seem more natural than your previous one, if that's possible =P
I also like the details in the blurry cloud, how did you manage to do that? I always end up blurring the details u_u

The blur (gaussian - one of chaotica's blurs) is applied to one transform/iterator, which allows the structure of that element to blur.  Blurred transforms are more transparent - less dense - and thus will allow other structures to be visible through it.  As elements in this fractal overlap (either because of the transform setup causing transforms to overlap, or due to a final transform causing parts of the image to overlap), the blur is resolved with details behind it.

I also set up my fractals in a way that the transforms form enough structure close to each other, so blurring one of them will blur a part of the overall structure, but usually not of the entire fractal.  If you duplicate or use lower weights, you can have detail blurs that are also in line with the main structure of the fractal as well!

It is always intriguing and a. Challenge for me to see what happens that revolves around the art. I can imagine the story takes form and shape of it. This is beautiful as well brings out the most inspirational and uplifting of a different side of the art. As always it is always a pleasure to see what lies in the art of your eyes

The art shapes the story, and the story shapes the art.  That's what I enjoy most about working with these - I don't need to know what I want to do at the start, but once the art provides a few ideas, they can start to become alive in what I'm creating and let my mind spin a wonderful story that guides and refines rest of it into a reasonably complete state!
