Mechanical Angel

EDIT: wow! thankyou everyone for all the :+fav:s on this work over 1200 in the first 24 hours and still going I'd love to thank everyone individually but when i try dA thinks I'm a spam-bot :giggle: so i shall just say a big thankyou here to everyone who takes the time to look and to those who choose to :+fav: :heart:

my first upload of 2013 :party: ( even if i did make this piece at the end of 2012...)

this is my second entry into :iconsassy-cat-sooo-catty:s fractal manipulation contest
more details found in the journal here…

EDIT II: a pphotograph of a print of this piece framed up and on display in a small exhibition actually did get uploaded before this digital image and can be found in my gallery here

:thumb342685324: :thumb342683157:

EDIT III: my mom asked that for her birthday i create her an edit of this work but less in the copper and brown colours and more in aqua and silver colours to match her front room...


the original reference for the cogs in this can be found here… though i usually just nab them (the cog shapes that is) from my older works where i have used the same resource before.
all other textures and fractal stock are my own, some can be found in my fractal stock folder and some in my texture stock folder, some parts are even recycled from older works of mine.

Sometimes reality feels like that.

Hello, I really loved this drawing and I have been looking for a long time ago a cover that passed the idea of a book that I am writing, I would like to know if i can use the image (with the copyright) just for the cover in wattpad (a free, non-profit publishing platform for amateur writers only). I do not know when I will start posting the book, but the name is Mechanical Wing (Asa Mecânica, in Portuguese). And that's not going to be the final cover if I post to sell. If you want more details, I can send you how the cover would be and my user there :)

Hello, this is a favourite image of mine and i would be delighted if  you wanted to use it, as long as appropriate credit for the image is given, however i can't let you use the image for a final cover - but if you would want an image to use for it  I would be more than happy to create a similar image just for your project :aww:

thankyou for the compliment :aww: I love to play with lots of details and textures in my work  - or else the flip side is bold blocky shapes  - but this one was more of a 'i must include ALL the things!' :lmao: 
LostbunniesofWendy's avatar
hahahaahah! And it looks so great!

:giggle:  it was also one of those artworks that i tried in one colour, and then another, then another then mentally flailed about a lot as it seemed to work in most colourways i tried :faint: in the end i stuck with the brown and rust colours as it fitted more with the 'mechanical' element 
LostbunniesofWendy's avatar
It happens. Thats why colour sketch saves you some time :D
rockgem's avatar
:giggle: most of the time the last think i ever think of is a colour when i work, i just sort of go with the flow 
rockgem's avatar
thankyou kindly for your compliment on my work :aww:
