Chakra Nebula by Anaxsys Chakra Nebula by Anaxsys
Thank you to everybody who shared their idea's for helping me with this. the new version can be found here
Chakra Nebula 2.0

the Chakra's can be found here: [link]

The Chakra's are fractals made with Apophysis. The pedals of each should represent their sacred Geometry. The rest was painting done in PhotoShop CS2, one of my first paintings actually.

Thank You to =scully7491 for the space brushes, and ~Halcyon83 for the flame packs to play with

I would like to discuss using this design for materials in my healing practice or creating new designs.  Can you please contact me directly?  Thank you!

i just want you to know I found your artwork on a sweater in the website:!blank/…

I sure hope you gave him persimmon. But i doubt it since there are multiple things he has stolen. Including artwork from DC comics.

I'll DM you as well.

With as popular this and similar works are, it's really surprising that there isn't a group for this.

Hello. I love love love your photo!!! So very beautiful. I am an energy healer and I wanted to respectfully ask you if I could use your photo (with crediting you as the Artist of course) on the back of my business cards and on my web site I am working on my web site so it is not published yet. However, I have a Facebook page this is the link [link] if you want to check it out. I try to credit everyone honestly for their work whenever I am able to. It's good karma. :D Thank you so very much for your kind consideration of my request and I hope you will continue to create your beautiful and visually stunning spiritual artwork. Love & Light to you!

This is awesome! An instant :+fav:!
But could you explain to me what this is? ^^; I don't understand this...

Here is a link to a good description... [link] Thanks for the fav. I am working on a new version as well

Fantastic idea!!!!! for the body outline you could probably find stock of someone in the lotus position or make you own in Poser, and then have it fade out so you can see the outline and hints of a person...For celestial background take a look at some of my spacescapes and nebulas.. You can make a better background real easy using Universe from Diardsoftware or just using some photoshop techniques, and background nebulas can be made from fractals too....
Anaxsys Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007
Thank you. I am glad you like the idea. This is one I have been thinking about a lot recently. I definitely want to redo it. I think I will try more painting. That program also looks very interesting. I will have to give it a try
EPAF Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2007
Wow, that's amazing. I'd neve be able to make something like that - VERY well done!
A nice idea combined with a beautiful expression of colour and content has become one hell of an excellent fractal design. Thanks for showing - into my :+fav:s this goes. ;)

Excellent work. My only suggestion would be to make the Crown a bit smaller and the Third Eye a bit bigger--these two seem disproportionately bigger/smaller than the others and it makes me feel like the chakras are imbalanced (unless of course that is the intent of the piece, but it doesn't seem that it is).

Anaxsys Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2007
Thanks for the suggestion. I agree with the third eye. But i believe the crown is supposed to be larger. It also represents the halo, but perhapse it should look more like one. Thanks again for the insight and the fav.

Its very Alex Grey. I recommend you go look him up. He is a stunning artists who does a lot of work with Chakra's. You may find it helpful.
I actually like the picture you have done...
Anaxsys Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2007
Thanks for the artist recommendation. Very interesting stuff. I think he may have done the artwork for the Tool video 'lateralus'. I am glad you like it. I really hope to redo it or reuse the chakra's for other pieces.
Halcyon83 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2007
well, i gotta tell you that i very much like the concept. this piece shows that there are lots of different ways to fuse fractals with other styles of digital art.
you gave this piece a cosmic atmosphere which i think together with all those nice different colours work well. i also like the fact that every chakra has its own geometry, which makes it of course interesting to look at. i'm not familiar with chakra's nor indian relegion, so to me they look more like tiny crop circles :).
the "cosmic entity" reminds me a bit of the eternity/infinity-charackter of those cosmic marvel comics of the 80's and 90's: [link]
i'm a huge fan of this character, so it wasn't that difficult to like your entity as well.
however, try to blend your fractals a little more in the overall picture. i am everything but a photoshop-wizard, but it looks to me as if those fractals could have been integrated a little more in the entity. besides that, i really really like this piece, i truly do.
Anaxsys Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2007
Thank You!
I appreciate the tips and I am glad you like it. Maybe I can fuse the alien idea into it. :jarklarge: :)
I hope to make something nice with this piece after some editing, and I think that means getting better at nebula's. I can probably make them blend in more that way. Perhaps even ad fractal galaxies, or clouds.
Anaxsys Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2007
Wow, Thank you for the excellent comment. I agree with basically everything you have said about it. I did kind of rush it because I was afraid I would get stuck on it.
I think I will make it a smaller image and have the chakra's be scraps or stock for other images. that way I can just link it.
I think I would like to take this any make a larger, more conceptual painting.

Thank you again. This is exactly what I am looking for. It is a big help...
Swordgleam Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2007
This is a very cool idea. I wish I knew more about chakras, so I could give more helpful criticism.

The close-up of each of the chakra fractals is very beautiful, but it nearly killed my computer, and I have a pretty powerful box. The only suggestion I can think of to remedy this is to make a border for the image made up of detail shots of the fractals.

The head chakra isn't nearly as good-looking as the others. It's also too close in color to the one directly above it. Could you perhaps make it a darker indigo, to distinguish it better from the violet? I know the shape has less radia symmetry than the others, which probably makes fractals more difficult, but I'm sure you can figure something out.

The crown chakra blends much better with the background than the others. I'm sure this probably has something to do with purple being a more natural color for space backgrounds, and you do have background stars of the other colors, but it still looks a bit awkward for the other ones. Again, I'm not sure what to suggest, beyond a softening of the edges of the other fractals, if possible.

I think what you did with the left hand (on the right side of the picture) works better than the more detailed right hand.

I think perhaps some small, brighter stars in the background around the nebula could balance the image a bit more. But then, I also just plain like shiny things. I think some bright stars in the white 'outline' bit would be good, too - perhaps make it look a bit more like a contellation, instead of an arbitrary drawing?

I think this is a really cool concept and you've got a very good start on it.
