Fractal Space by nmsmith Fractal Space by nmsmith
Got to playing with a fractal, an earlier planet I had created in Photoshop, and things turned spacey!

I love this! I'm listening to Sing for Absolution by Muse right now and it fits so perfectly. The video is about launching into space :D This makes me happy :D:D

Wow, awesome job. I love the blend of blue and stars. How did you get the various patches of blue to blend so perfectly in Photoshop? I can never get that right. Anyway, this is beautiful, keep it up!! :D

Thank you for the kind compliment. Most fractals aren't the color I need them, so I recolor them in Photoshop. I just posted a tutorial about creating backgrounds that describes how I color fractals. I think you'll find it informative.

Thanks again, and have a wonderful evening.

Hey, you're the second one to notice that. :) Fractals create some interesting things, don't they. Thanks so much for stopping by.

i rather like the way you're mixing Fractal art and more 'regular' forms of art to explore your style. Tis brilliant!

I love the space "fog"! I think you incorporated it very nicely :D

Thanks. The space "fog" is a photoshop brush that I blurred with a guassian blur. :)

I find it nearly impossible to pass one of your new submissions without :+fav: every one. Please forgive me if I don't often comment. I usually have nothing constructive to add to perfect pieces other than "wow." and that gets old...

I know how you feel. There are some artists here on DA that I feel that way about too. Thank you. Even a "wow" is appreciated. :)
