Apo Museum Gift Shop by wolfepaw Apo Museum Gift Shop by wolfepaw
Playing around with the Grand Julia 3D Cubes script by :iconmurdocsnook: found in the Super Massive Script Pack 3 by =Fractal-Resources [link] and just happened to find a great place to store some of my little Apos that I use for my collages. Sure is full. Maybe I'll have to do another one for the rest of my bits.

Anyone need to rent some space?

All items in image made using Apophysis 2.08 3D Hack and I "boxed" and "shelved" the Apo items in Photoshop CS.

Full view for detail and download is 1280x1024.

Update 08-17-09: Based on comments I received, I renamed this from a Warehouse to a Museum Gift Shop. I hope you agree with the change.

Thank you very much, Tanith!! I'm glad you enjoyed this collage! It's an oldie, but one of my favorites. It was a perfect setting to show off some individual "fractalets".

how do you get these flames to be so vibrant? I'm failing miserably in getting mine to really 'pop' like these do... absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you very much! I really appreciate the lovely comment.

The secret usually is in the Color Symmetry. You need to play with the numbers on each transform. It will vary depending on the variations and the weights on each. If I have a transform that has a heavy weight, I might give it a color symmetry between 0.975 or 0.995 and in that same flame, if I have a triangle with a very low weight or at least a lower weight, I give it a color symmetry of -1. For some reason that tends to pop out all sorts of colors, most of the time. This is not a hard and fast rule, but when I want colors to come out, I try this first. If it doesn't work, I try other symmetries and weights for the transforms. Not all flames will pop well. I'm not sure what makes the difference, but that's what I have found. Then, I also do post render processing on the flame in Apo before I save it and then I play with the light curves a bit in GIMP. I hope this info helps you find the color in your flames.

your work really is beautiful. I consider your renders as models I want to aspire to be able to do - including your gorgeous collages. thanks so much for taking the time to explain this to me. I wish there was a place that offered discussion of basic work flow... I'll have to look into downloading GIMP as I use an old Photoshop Elements program at the moment. I'll keep trying to explore the program... I've played with some things but hadn't found the part to make the flames pop. Now, at least I have something to try...

Thank you very much! I'm so pleased you like it. I had so much fun stocking the shelves and cubes with the fractalets. I have a mind to do another one with other fractal bits I have lying around. I have tons of them.

I really appreciate the view, the comment, and the :iconfavoriteplz:!!

Aww Peggi, first you don't need to credit me for the copyright, I am not even sure it's valid but at least makes a statement :D

Now this composition, as I've seen commented by someone else, really looks like a crystal souvenir shop. All the pieces look so delicate and fragile, even the "flying carpet" :D
Congratulations, it's a :+fav: of course but thought it called for a comment :D :nod:

Thank you, Martha, for your comment! I changed the name to reflect the "gift shop" feel of this. I'm so glad you liked it. It was a lot of fun filling the shelves with things.

I appreciate you letting me use your declaration. It says it all.

Gosh, every time I look at this piece I'm even more AMAZED!!!:wow:

Definitely NOT a warehouse!!

I guess it could be called a Museum "Gift Shop" (cuz that would be a nice little thing to use for other cool purposes on dA later) But honestly---to me, I'd have to say it's a "DO NOT" touch Museum SHOWCASE!!!:nod:

And while I've seen bunches and bunches of Amazing Art, this has to be one of the most pleasant. I'm not the greatest Artist but I know "Perfect" when I see it!!

So Beautiful and Creative...

Thanks for asking my opinion! :glomp"

Gosh, you're making me blush with all those nice words! I'm really very pleased that you like this. I'm never too sure when I make something if other people will like it, too. Plus I'm really into bright or rich colors and not everyone feels the same.

Maybe I rename this "Apo Museum Gift Shop" just for grins and chuckles.

Thank you for taking the time to comment and reply. I adore feedback and I think it helps me improve. :iconpounceglomp:

I'm so sorry to hear that the pain has gotten worse. Is there something they can do to help that at all? I can just imagine what you are going through and I hope it gets better soon. I wish I could do something to make the pain magically disappear.

You are welcome sweetie.

Yeah, the pain sucks, big time. Probably not the best way to describe it but then everyone knows it is significant pain. Some days it isn't too bad, but others it is awful. Yeah, I wish pain could magically disappear too. Then we could heal the whole world.
Tell me, what Sarah Brightman C D's do you have?

Yes, I see what you mean. I thought maybe a curio shop or a museum gift shop. Should I change the name?

Do you mean to I sell my work on consignment or will I sell others work from the shop and pay them a consignment?

Yes you need to change the name to something like "Peggi's Fractal Curio Shop" or "Peggi's Fractal Museum Gift Shop." :D

uhm... both! :D

Thanks, D! Yes, this one was fun to do and my first collage with all Apo elements, no photos, no PS brushes, patterns, or gradients. I loved the basic Apo image that resulted from the Grand Julia 3D Cubes script and I thought it would be perfect as a background in a new collage.

I owe you a note and I will send one soon, but I wanted to ask weren't you the one, other than me, who was having problems with your McAfee virus scan quarantining Apo all the time? If not, excuse the confusion.

I had the same problem and after reading several forums about it, I figured out what the problem was. It has to do with McAfee's Artemis project where they try to anticipate new viruses. It's part of the Active Protection. I just disabled that part of McAfee and now I don't have the problem anymore.

I take it you're using regular Apo 2.08 beta? Well, if you ever want to use 3D again, try disabling your McAfee Active Protection and you shouldn't have the difficulty anymore.
