I am in general, a digital artist. My gallery mostly consists of fractals made in the Apophysis freeware program available on, and digital paintings done in Adobe Photoshop (currently CS3) with a 21-inch Wacom Cintiq tablet.

My favorites range far and wide across DA. Themes range from just eye-catching to science-fiction and humor. Pieces come from various galleries of interest, my devwatch, or things that catch my eye.



Before Paul could answer, there came a low call and the troop swept forward into a wider chamber, carrying Paul with them. He found himself in an open space confronted by Stilgar and a strange woman wearing a flowing wraparound garment of brilliant orange and green. Her arms were bare to the shoulders, and he could see she wore no stillsuit. Her skin was a pale olive. Dark hair swept back from her high forehead, throwing emphasis on sharp cheekbones and aquiline nose between the dense darkness of her eyes.

She turned toward him, and Paul saw golden rings threaded with water tallies dangling from her ears.

This bested my Jamis?” she demanded.

“Be silent, Harah,” Stilgar said, “It was Jamis’ doing - he invoked the tahaddi al-burhan.”

                                                                                                                   - Dune, Frank Herbert, p. 342

I got as close to the book description of Harah as I could. However, I made her darker-skinned than pale olive because even with that description, she doesn’t read to me as white. So I found a nice reference for a Middle Eastern woman’s face on Google, and while glancing periodically at it to get her eyes and facial shape right, I just worked Herbert's description in with those. I kept her lean-looking, as that’s a common description of the Arrakeen natives. Not sure if I like my current pass at the all-blue spice eyes, but it’s a start. Pretty happy with the way her skin looks - don't think I've quite gotten it that soft and believable before....

Seems to me usually the major characters get portraits, but we don’t see some of the secondary characters depicted. And I felt like doing this, so.

  • Watching: My glorious 22" widescreen LCD monitor
  • Drinking: Water. Always water.
It's been entirely ENTIRELY too long since I posted a new journal.

I'm still mostly on Tumblr, so you'll find more of my art and Portal fanart on there than here. I'm very active on Tumblr, and I have an artblog I'm trying to fill with assorted pieces.

I'm now trying to creep back into fractal art, as Apophysis 7x seems to work fine with Windows 8.

I have just one problem.

I lost ALL of my old parameters from ages ago. Some computer crash, and quitting Apo. The hard-drive that even had the params was completely toasted, and I wasn't the least into fractal art at the time, so I wasn't keen on getting them back. But now, I'm just staring stupidly at my really awesome stained-glass ones and going "Oh. Shit." The ones I REALLY want most is the set I handed out in Aposhack ages ago for my piece RADIANCE, and while I managed to look up that it was made using the Lazysusan variation (which thank god, the default plugins HAS), I have completely lost almost every other fractal-making memory. :dead: To make matters worse I'm pretty sure it was a stupidly easy one to do, cause I made so many of the damn things....and I've forgotten.


If anyone happens to have those old params - I was still DeepChrome back in the day - I would be much obliged. >_>;; Just shoot 'em over in a response to this journal or in a note. Thank you.

Anyways, here's hoping I get some fractaling legs back under me. This machine's so much beefier than the old one, I have a feeling it'll probably just slam out print-quality renders in hours rather than halves or thirds of whole days. :3

I'll probably continue with the fanart, and possibly get back into digital painting when I'm feeling a little less fried. But I need a new creative venture. I saw some amazing fractal on Tumblr -looked like part ngon, part something. And it's inspired me to come back to fractaling.

Anyways, hope the holiday season finds you all well!
Chrome out.

Hey, have you seen this crossover I did called "Goggles and the Tears"? It's here on DA, but it reads better on AO3…
In a nutshell, SHODAN takes Elizabeth under her control over Tears to rule the multiverse, and starts by pretending to be an "Archangel" as an android to trick Zachary Hale Comstock. I've been meaning to draw her in that form but never found the time. She takes other forms in alternate timelines as well, like the typical Chinese Fan-hair style in a Half-Life 2 AU, and controlling this creature in the horror game SOMA.…
(If you don't know about any of these other sources, don't worry.)
