Fractal: Rockgem by rockgem Fractal: Rockgem by rockgem
i was persuaded after i made a piece like this of :devmissimoinsame: to make one of well.. me. :shrug:
so yes this is my new dA ID for a while :aww:

fractal manipulation created using fractals rendered in apophysis and edited together using photoshop piece by piece :faint: aside from some detailing on the necklace the border on the background and the center of the butterflies every other component piece of this is made from a fractal.
the ivy and butterfly shapes can be found in my fractal stock folder
special thanks to :devanthroshogun; for sending me some time back some random batch fractals to see what i could do with them - the hair and the glasses are in part made from these :hug: thanks Dmitri!

is the one of :iconmissimoinsane:
is the one of :icondartimus:

decided of course to add the ivy and butterflies to finish this cause according to Celtic Moonsigns the ivy and the butterfly are my sign not to mention i have an extensive ivy pattern tattooed along my sides :giggle:

I think the only suiting picture I have in my possession is the one that currently sits as my ID photo on Facebook.

thankyou for the compliment :aww: this wasn't a piece i was going to make but a friend *missimoinsane was hosting a contest where the aim was to draw a portrait of her in any way the participant wished - i opted for fractal manipulation (of course lol ) but when i completed it another friend asked for a similar piece which was hastily followed by 'Gem you gotta make yourself out of fractals as well!' so this happened. :giggle:

These fractal portraits are amazing :O
It's just crazy how you manage to get something so realistic after something as abstract as raw fractals.
It looks just... really awesome. I'd love to get a portrait like it :iconyayzplz:

Anyway, congratulations. Awesome work... as always. >w<

Ahaha I know what it is, I'm the same ^^; You give art as a prize for contest then you give art as art trades then you give art just because you feel like it and you want to make someone happy, and then you have one billion unfinished drawings and you have to finish them all :faint:
Well good luck with it then :XD:

:giggle: well at the moment i have about 5 pieces of gift art to finish for friends whose birthdays are coming up in the next few days and some tattoo designs to finish for other friends as well - i never seem to get round for art for me just lately :giggle:

Ahaha good luck for all of this then and don't forget to take time for you now and then! I know that when I spend my time doing things for others, the list always gets longer and longer and in the end I always give up and just do what I want for me.
Which is bad.
So don't forget to make breaks from giftworks from time to time! :)

that is always the problem in doing a self portrait, you always begin to get paranoid on the fact of whether it looks like you or not. it is the same in doing pics of others ;)

:iconrockgem:
rockgem Featured By Owner May 3, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
lol i guess so that and its rare i DO get in front of a camera or anything for art purposes i'm happier behind it not to mention ther was a whole debate someone once had with me when i did a self representation before of how 'self portrait makers are simply narcissistic' it stuck with me for years and its took me a long time before i tried to put my own face in art again

Lol ;) i hate getting photos of my self... mostly because i start to feel a bit vain... and i see what you mean by the 'narcissistic' nature.

vain or narcissistic is something i have always tried to make sure i'm not so to be accused of it that one time ages ago left me slightly paranoid
