Be Koi - Gowns by rockgem Be Koi - Gowns by rockgem
well after a little natter to =Jazzman1989 ( who i seem to always get some cracking ideas from!) he suggested i ought try make some dress designs themed on Koi fish :aww:
always eager for a challenge i took it up and ta-da! :giggle:

yes i also apologise repeatedly for my bad pun in the title.

fractal manipulation created using pieces of fractals rendered in apophysis and pieced together using photoshop few little details adding using photoshop as well ( the burn took was great for creating the black areas)
most the fractal shapes used in this can be found in my fractal stock folder,
the little flowers and the fishes in the background i nabbed from older work

a special thanks to ~AnthroShogun who sent me the one shape used a lot in this to create the floaty 'fin' shapes in this one :blowkiss:

thankyou for the compliment it took quite a bit of dabbling but i got there in the end i think the more i played with it i figured it was just as much about the idea of 'texture' as well as shape i'm so pleased that you think i have achieved that in this design :aww:
