Oriental Flame Collage by Lilyas Oriental Flame Collage by Lilyas
This was my contribution to the Apophysis Collage Contest. It won the 2nd place.

I mixed about 15 different Apophysis fractals or parts of them, added some plain backgrounds, did different perspective distorsions and applied several layer styles to generate a 3D scenery. No single part is drawn.

To view the full size is a must for the many subtle details. I also added a high resolution version of the collage in a zip-file for downloading. Enjoy this piece and thanks for stopping by!

Edit: I reviewed this piece and made some little changings. I also created a total new version from this. Now it is a :star: :star: :star: Oriental Night :star: :star: :star:. Hope you like the new one as well! :D

I like the duality between this one and the Oriental Night. It is very cool to see the same primary image but with 2 drastically different moods.

Thank you. What do you think should be improved? I thought about a nice little figure at the fence and some colour adjustment.

I disagree, you posted it because you felt ok with it, therefore, there's no room for improvement, artwise! Sounds to me like trying to give advise to VanGogh, it's not perfection, it's feelings! Will say that till my goodbye day! ;)

Of course you are right, Javier! But anyway, I thought about a extended version before I posted my contribution. I don't care about the little wrong perspectives too much but look forward to an oriental night scene with - maybe - the princess looking out for her love with a view to the far horizon. Only she w ill not be made from fractals. Well, parts maybe. Just wait and see! ;p
