Dragon Masks by rockgem Dragon Masks by rockgem
Fractal manipulation
Created using fractals made using apophysis and edited together using photoshop

I like dabbling with the idea of elements too much, this is one of a series of 8 fractal manipulations of dragon masks though instead of just opting for the 4 elements earth fire air and water - I decided to try to whip up ice metal stone and wood as well. All of these were made from the same basic shape each one having a few alterations
this piece is just all 8 individual elements masks put together

the individual pieces can be found at the links below if anyone wants a better look at any individual mask as it were

:bulletblack: Earth [link]

It's nice to have all eight dragon masks in the same piece. They all look great. :)

These masks of yours correspond with some of my stories so much, I wish I could put the masks on characters :D

lol well use the idea as inspiration - try drawing up one of your characters with a mask and see what happens

>.> I could go into my full lecture about thee"Fire" element, but I'll shorten it to - fre is hical reaction and so not natural and not an element, the element is really Heat. ^^ And that was my stressed point if the week.

>< my keyboard hates meh...

lol you could but i could counter argue that then ice would be redundant, also and the element there would be 'cold' but fire can occur naturally - i.e from lightening strikes etc, - making me wonder if i ought have created 'electricity, dark and light' as well :shrug:
and its a stressed point that leads to intreguing debate =P

:hug: keyboards are like that

Lol, Ice isn't an element, it's the result of an element. Lightning heats something to the point of cumbustion and light and dark are elements. Electricity is the result of air pressure, so it's not really an element. Lol, this is an interesting debate.

lol you could say that about a lot of elements like 'wood' is not strictly speaking neither is metal as both are derived from 'earth' yes this could be a long debate :giggle:

Very very nice work. You should think about making these into real masks and sell them.

if i had that sort of patience i might give it a go :giggle: i could probably create something like this 3 dimensionally if i had that and the time
but the downside is i find i get a lot of feedback saying 'you should make this to sell or print that to sell' but when i do i get no interest, leaves me in a rock and a hard place

I love them all, it's great to have them all on one deviation! They are all so individual and capture their elements perfectly.
