Roswell...? by rockgem Roswell...? by rockgem
OK for a while a fellow deviant Virgin Prune :iconvirginprune: has been telling me to try out some fractals - so bring on Apophysis and me being a tad clueless so randomly hitting keys and typing in numeric values I decided to see what might happen - from there I kept seeing pictures in the shapes so took some of them into photoshop to edit then to emphasis here and there some of the shapes I was seeing
Ok so technically this image and a few others like it are edited fractals but are still more fractal than anything else so hence I put them in the fractal category. - sorry if this is incorrect ><

ok i randomly created a fractal that looked to me partly like a skull - so i took it into photoshop and edited it a little this came out an i love it! its delightful creepy - else i should not have watched the most recent Indiana Jones movie before i bean to create :giggle:

Whoa. This is awesome. You created this by just doing random things in Apophysis and then touching it up in Photoshop? That is amazing. It's a cool looking alien skull. It would be cool to see another more detailed (detail as in skin/scales and eyeballs, etc) drawing. I'm new to your art so I'm not sure if that is something you do or have already done or not.

I like this though. It has good detail. The eyes are cool. It looks like it has ears, but since this looks more like a skull than a complete head, they would probably be horns. It looks like it has a problem with it's teeth though, maybe aliens don't have good dental care. xD The rings on the top of it's head are interesting, I wonder what they would be.

Great job!

thankyou so very much for the compliment on this work of mine - it was one of my first sort of dabblings along this sort of line where i began to pull what i created in apophysis into photoshop.
more detail as in a full face etc hasn't been done in my work but it could well be a future consideration ( from time to time i start to forget what work i have and have not got :faint: )

someone mentioned due to the pointed shapes it looked like 'wolverine' :giggle: that made me chuckle - i kept the teeth faint - in the stereotypical alien depictions they often have weaker mouth shapes and larger heads and eyes ( large brains and telepathy supposedly maybe that explains the rings? :P ) so i kept the mouth a lot smaller and fainter

most my work boils down to luck - i play with apophysis and see what comes out the other side :D thankyou again for the compliments :aww:

lol well a friend of mine Marcus ~VirginPrune introduced me to apophysis but never told me how to use it so i sort of just made it up as i went along and then just take my little abstracts from the random batches into photoshop or GIMP from that point i can usually build up more complex images either scenes or more complex abstracts - i did write a basic tutorial on doing that as well as creating 'fake fractal' effects in abstracts with photoshop. - i do intend to write something by means of tutorial on my more representative works such as the still life pieces in the future
