Mechanical Angel by rockgem Mechanical Angel by rockgem
EDIT: wow! thankyou everyone for all the :+fav:s on this work over 1200 in the first 24 hours and still going I'd love to thank everyone individually but when i try dA thinks I'm a spam-bot :giggle: so i shall just say a big thankyou here to everyone who takes the time to look and to those who choose to :+fav: :heart:

my first upload of 2013 :party: ( even if i did make this piece at the end of 2012...)

this is my second entry into :iconkittylafurr:s fractal manipulation contest
more details found in the journal here [link]

EDIT II: a pphotograph of a print of this piece framed up and on display in a small exhibition actually did get uploaded before this digital image and can be found in my gallery here



EDIT III: my mom asked that for her birthday i create her an edit of this work but less in the copper and brown colours and more in aqua and silver colours to match her front room...




the original reference for the cogs in this can be found here [link] though i usually just nab them (the cog shapes that is) from my older works where i have used the same resource before.
all other textures and fractal stock are my own, some can be found in my fractal stock folder and some in my texture stock folder, some parts are even recycled from older works of mine.

thankyou kindly for the compliment :aww: and I have a soft spot for all things fractal and steampunk also but this piece was the first time i considered putting the two together, I must admit the results here were half intentional and half luck with experimentation

Thankyou kindly for the compliment this was my stand-out piece for my December exhibition so I really went to town with the textures s a way to develop the style i have with my fractal manipulations, I think I have a couple of photos of framed prints of this that I added some metallic inks to - the one in this colour with some gold ink on it etc. was sold but a different colour edit in aqua with silver and green inks on it has found its way onto my mom's wall - after 18 years she has finally hung another piece of my work on her wall ( the first time she did was something I doodled for the kitchen when i was about 12 or 13) so its a bit of an achievement there haha!

I love those old book shops that smell like pages of books. And when they have couches and coffee, all the better! :heart: And old books are awesome, biut a lot of times I can't get into the writing, so I fall back on new ones, lol. For a book nerd, I'm kind of a fail >.<

:nod: me too. :love: most the time it depends on the genre or my mood. i usually end up with several books i am reading at any given time as my mood changes :giggle: even us book nerds have their categories they are not so keen on ( for me it would be Jane Austin :ashamed: )

i dislike having to watermark in general but i have had too much work pilfered before now so i watermark everything aside from stock.

:giggle: i hear that quite often about my works although its only just recently I've started including more non-fractal elements such as some of the textures in my work, its just the way i collage fractals and pieces of fractal together it does veer away from the way most fractals manipulations and raw fractals look.

oh I miss your fractal so much =D << away from DA for almost 2 years
It was just today that finally I visit DA again, and I saw your work (this work). I just think that I love this piece. And I was kinda amazed when I realized that it is you, the artist of this work. It's been a really long time since last time I saw your works.
I hope you still remember me XD haha, but it's okay if you don't. :XD:
Very good work, friend =) I don't know but i'm happy for seeing you and your work on DA again.
