Art of the Goldsmith

Ultra Fractal 5.02. Full size view recommended, for the details.

This was an experiment to see if/how I could adapt the jewel making technique of N M Smith... an artist who is no longer on Deviant Art

The gold setting is a merge of three trap shapes. This image uses image import and is constructed wholly within Ultra Fractal (except for the addition of a sig afterwards); 14 layers in all.

Not bad for a first attempt, I think. :)

:bulletgreen: Later images in this jewel series that you might enjoy can be found in my Fractal Jewels gallery here: Link

We all need more time so to anyone who may 'fave and run' on this piece or any other: thank you in advance :rose:

Deviant Art is broken - the print option for this image has been trashed and I cannot correct it. DA seem unable to correct it either.
For a serious buyer I will find an alternative way to make this available as a print.

Reminds me of some of the jewelry worn by the character of Deja Thoris in 'John Carter of Mars' illustrated concept art for the comic books and movies. These are just epically beautiful. Amazing!

Hi there, I'm looking for a cool 'magical' fractal image to use as the cover art for a book I'm planning to self publish, any chance I can discuss with you mutual requirements?

Hi there evilpilch. Thanks for your interest in my fractal art. I'm afraid my work is not for sale - I am a retired lady with no interest in negotiating such matters. Art is a fun activity for me and I want it to stay that way!  I'm sorry if this is disappointing to you and hope you find what you are looking for.
