Octopus Dragon Camp by MANDELWERK Octopus Dragon Camp by MANDELWERK
I am now exploring the outskirts of the Octopus Dragon fractal.



I had spent all day climbing up to the top of a strange tree, and when looking down on the other side I found an abandoned dragon camp.

Seems abandoned… but WAIT, I hear something… ABOVE!

Those hints of sunlight and vegetation make this look so real ... one would not believe it's a fractal. I'm still having trouble accepting it.

What more can I say ... this is beautiful, unique, masterful work. The way it's rendered and displayed makes me feel like I am actually there, exploring those lost ancient grounds and taking photographs.

This looks like one of those places that are harmless and full of beauty during the day ... but are the source for all kinds of ominous phenomena or the concentration field for dark, malefic creatures during the night. It would be really interesting to see this piece submerged in moonlight. :)

You have my respect. :clap:

Dude you totally blow the fractal world ! This looks so much like the alien nest from the movies -- when my friend showed me this, I couldn't believe this was a fractal ! Looks like a sci fi painting !

Yes agree with you :) They would fit pretty well in here...indeed. Although i am not really sure if 3d models do really fit into Fractal scapes. Sometimes i think yes and sometimes i think it would look a little bit too different all in one image...but anyway that totally depends...keep up the good works ;)

You are probably right... would need some post work to make them blend together well.
I will. Keep up the good work youtoo! ;)

wow! the narrative fascinates - implies an entire world, but the image is simply breathtaking. I speculate that the trees of life and knowledge in the Garden of Eden may have been something like this...

Cool. Can these be output at high resolution? They'd make fantastic wall prints, but would want to be huge... like 3x2 meters huge =)

Check my Deviant ID [link] ;)
I also did this 3.3 gigapixel image: [link]

But you cannot render them that big in one render, you need to stitch several small images together...

Stunningly beautiful O.o

I like the "smoothness" despite all the rich fractally detailed patterns. It looks much more organic than other parts.
I can easily imagine a dragon mother sheltering her hatchlings there.
