I Set the Sky on Fire

Software used: Apophysis

Somebody please put the fire out! I'm on fire! 

Probably the last tweak in these series I'm posting on DA. For more tweaks check out my May roundup at Patreon -… there's even one shaped like... yeah, don't make me say it outloud! :giggle: Anyway, it's getting serious there, I have 6 patrons already, so I'm revamping the reward system a bit and adding regular uploading schedule to give them their money's worth :nod:

Thank you for all favourites, comments, critiques and devwatches! :rose: It means a lot to me.

This is my first one, but seeing your work, I had to give it a try:

First of all, I love the composition of this piece, both colors and arrangement are exceptionally well-designed. The window created by the smoke ( I dont know, is it smoke?) plus the lonely bright star create a very dense atmosphere and also add a whole new plain to the picture.

Next, there is the randomness of the smoke figures and stars that seem placed accidentally sometimes, but the viewer can still imagine how these structures form together to something meaningful, something that you as artist didnt force on the viewer, but rather is imagined by the viewer himself.

What surprised me the most was how you added elements that one would think dont belong into the scene - like the bubbles in the foreground - yet they still manage to fit in this piece somehow.

Finally, there is just one thing I could potentially dislike: I feel like the effect would be even greater, if this window in the smoke would be completely dark apart from this one lonely star. I feel this would give it an extra touch... but that's just my personal opinion <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/>

Thank you for your feedback :hug:

The bubbles are there to throw people off balance, a viewer usually expects only one interpretation of an image and I like to play with those expectations. I made 3 artworks in these series and in all cases people couldn't decide whether it's an image from space or from underwater - I'm always glad when I manage to get people to think about what they see in the artwork :nod: 
As for the dark "window", I agree that it may look better with just the star :) I'll try to play with that part in my next tweak and see how it goes, thanks for the input! ;)

Wow. You just wiped my vocal chord out of existence. In other words, you wiped me speechless.
You're last one is amazing, and I still think about it alot, and this one... mind blown. I can't believe that you can make this kind of amazing beauty, and still have time to thank your watchers. These pics must take forever to make, because this is just too good to be made in the matter of ten minutes. I rated all of them (vision, originality, technique and impact) five stars, because this work of art, this MASTERPIECE, deserves it!
Four Fives! You Have Yet to Disappoint Me!

Thank you! :hug:
I do try to reply to every comment, sometimes I get around to it a month late but I'm doing my best. As for how long it takes to make an artwork such as this one, it's usually couple of hours or days. The process of making fractal art is rather intricate, so it's kind of difficult to quantify the exact time. In some cases it can take couple of years, like when I make an artwork I'm not quite satisfied and come back to it few years later when I've learned some new techniques and I'm finally able to finish it to my liking :)
