Mechanics and Moonlight (Mechanical Angel II) by rockgem Mechanics and Moonlight (Mechanical Angel II) by rockgem
To the old friends still by my side, the new ones I have made over the past 12 months, to those that have walked away from me wherever your path will take you, to those dear to me who I have lost and lastly to those friends i have yet to find  Happy New Year! may 2015 be amazing for all of you!

fractal manipulation created using fractals rendered using apophysis and pieced together using photoshop along with some non-fractal elements (the cog shapes) and some textures. 
I once started the new year with a piece of work 'Mechanical Angel'  so i thought I'd try a similar piece to kick off 2015 :D 
the previous 'Mechanical Angel' work of mine can be found here Mechanical Angel

the original reference for the cogs in this can be found here Cogs and Filigree 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.

also entering this for the challenge over at Apo-Weekly-Challenge as detailed in this journal Challenge No 56 - Fractal Manipulations

Everything came together so well here.  Every time I look at it, I try to understand the real relationship between the gears and the angel, if there is one.  Perhaps it is a reference to "time" for each that gives this image credibility.  Lovely work, Gem!  Oh... you're welcome too!

people have perhaps less faith in faith and spirits and soul and more faith in technology and machines - i think that is just a little of what i wanted to try to play with  but more often than not i start with a quick 30 second biro doodle on a scrap of paper for my idea and then almost let the idea create itself when i start the work on the screen -  I love it when my art gets to that sort of stage where its going so well that it almost creates itself :aww:

Yes, I think I better understand how your work evolves now. 
Fractals created with MB3D don't really create themselves, but
some are easier to find or create and work with than others.  Those
fractals can be a joy to finish, especially when I get to the stage
where I apply the colors.  That's my favorite part!  Happy Face by Mirz123

:nod: i understand - its why i work with apophysis a lot i can let the program do its own thing and i find its a little like watching clouds - where you see different shapes and figures - i just love fractals since i discovered them properly back in December 2008 be they in the digital forms or in the natural or man-made ones :love: I love putting in the colours too :giggle: but in all honesty i adore textures and patterns and love to play with them
