the care and feeding of creepy-crawlies by heavymetalteacup the care and feeding of creepy-crawlies by heavymetalteacup
Wow - my first DD! :) What a great way to end 2011! THANK YOU.....this is pretty awesome after a few years hanging around on DA! I appreciate your support and kindness!!

Thanks for the favs, everyone! :dance: :love:

"A hive feeds....while a new brood is born in their shadows." 1500x1500 fullsize, if you want to see the main bug's face (complete with red eyes and antennae) - and the little red babies. :D

Mandelbulb raw fractal - title/frame in PS, info on "parent" param below. I wanted to create a feeling that this was a painting instead of a fractal. Hopefully the gradient and lighting achieved a hint of that. =P

******

This piece happened spontaneously while tweaking a param someone had graciously shared online - while mine doesn't look anything like it's original (that'd be no fun), this is the link to (in her description) the param pack from which I spawned my own image: [link]

Never too late, I appreciate the kind words! I haven't been making them as much this past year, but I tend to do them more often in winter. :)

Ah well thank you so much! :)

Mandelbulb is really wonderful for lighting, and creating atmosphere - it's pretty addictive. I've not used Sterling much, but prior to Mandelbulb I used both Incendia and Apo for awhile. Mandelbulb still wins me over, every time, and there's good resources on DA to get you into it quickly! Hope to see you posting them soon!

Oh yes! Nice group and I have entered it before - just right now I have no time to make new fractals because I'm writing a book. :)

I will start making more perhaps in the winter!
