:iconinfoplz: PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED A PRINT OF THIS IMAGE
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.

:icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz::icondivider1plz:
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:

I'm delighted to hear that but do be aware that this is pretty advanced work. I studied and practised for a long time before making this.

However, please don't be put off by that. It's a fab program and produces very satisfying imagery at all levels of ability. That's down to the sheer beauty of fractals, I loved it right from the start, though my first attempts were pretty feeble! :lmao:

You might find my beginner's guide helpful if you decide to give it a try: Learning Ultra Fractal

Have fun! :wave:
