Thank you very much!! Your fractal art is so imaginative and incredible. I used to use Apophysis myself a few years ago when I had a PC...but now I have a Mac and can't find an Apophysis program that will work on my Mac! I never got as good as you...but I loved that program the best!
If I use your work, can I post it not only here but off site?....full credit given and links sent to you of course!

well i first used apophysis back in december 2008 a friend of mine on here ~VirginPrune suggested i try it out - which i did but he didn't tell me how to use the program any so i just muddled through and got a few interesting shapes, which i then took into photoshop and used them in a collage like fashion to make my work :giggle: its a little quirky and out of the box for fractal art but it works for me :aww:
every time i look for a new computer and i say i like to do digital art they try to sell me a Mac, while they are amazing i know so many other artists have had troubles geting fractal software to run on them
if you use my work its fine to share offsite as long as you link in, most the time i say for use on site only but generally if people ask nice then i say yes :aww:

Thanks for your reply!! I always credit my sources....and will be happy to do so if I use any of your work! You are very nice!
I love my Mac...but why someone hasn't come up with good fractal software, especially Apophysis, I don't know!

i have the same question! i think there are plug ins etc to make apophysis work etc. but  they are not brilliant and i have never tried them - hopefully something will show up to make apophysis more accessible to mac users in the future :D

I would love to use this art as the cover art for my book. Would you consent? Of course, all of the credit would go to you. I'm afraid I can't afford to pay you, but it would get your name out there and I really do love this piece. After the book is published I may be able to pay you a little, since I think this deserves it. What do you say?

Purple and yellow work so well together! I like the composition of it, putting them in an umbrella really works well for an April-May theme.
The flowers together look really elegant :love: I already said that somewhere else, but I love daffodils. And purple flowers, well... it's purple. It can only please me :)

it just needed the bit of yellow to bring it to life - as yellow and purple are complimentary colours the one next to the other will always make them look brighter or stand out more :aww:

wow! the effect of so many purple shades in the flowers really compliment the daffodils (?) there...as does the black umbrella and the pale background ^^

rockgem Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
yes they are daffodils in there - i have another piece where they are more obvious but i'm saving it for next month ( the #Fractal-Flowers theme of the month is yellow then :giggle:)
on the basic colour wheel yellow is opposite purple so they compliment each other and do it well the one enhances the other more

thankyou for the compliment :aww: this was one of my usual 'argh i can't decided on a colour!!' pieces of work granted there was always going to be the yellow in there cause of the daffodils but it looked good with the purple areas in pretty much every other colour as well :faint:
