great idea with mixed media here and the charcoal filter really did great job to shadow the gears , very cool
wonderful work Eric...can you explain a little of what you did in Photoshop? And how much of this is drawn? What did you start with? Your work is most intriguing...
It is a bit of a long process. It starts with a fractal image from Mandelbulb 3D. I spend a lot of time in the fractal program getting it just the way I want. There are a variety of techniques in Photoshop to create an image that appears more drawn. I have taken bits from different techniques I have learn to create my own process. It would take to long to explain how I do that in specifics here. I work in a variety of layers and with a few brushes I created to give it a charcoal look. By layering different versions of the fractal and erasing away different parts I give it the faded look. It is probably 50% the original fractal and 50% drawn but each one varies. I would say on an average these images take about 6 to 10 hours from fractal design to finished image. I come from classic old master drawing training and experience so I wanted to bring that charcoal drawn look to the digital images. I love drawing on brown and grey paper with white and black charcoal. I am using these images as reference for actual large drawings on brown paper with white and dark charcoal. I hope to be posting some of the actual drawn fractals in a few weeks. Below is an example of one of my traditional drawing and one of my digital fractal sketches. It gives you a little idea of where I started with this idea. I started working in digital art about 6 years ago and wanted to approach what I do in the same mind set as my traditional background.
Wow - Fantastic graphic !!
Wow fascinating piece!
The text is just for the deviantart piece. The actual charcoal drawings I do of these do not have text in them.
The original image for this was created in Mandelbulb 3D but the digital drawing was created in Photoshop.
wonderful and very inspiring !
that's realy cool
Love this new idea.
