Apo Rainbow Garden by wolfepaw Apo Rainbow Garden by wolfepaw
Well, I think this will be my submission to :iconfractaldreams: Rainbow Contest. I've taken advice, opinions, and critiques into account and put them altogether in what should be the final collage of my Apo Garden. I hope you like this final version of it.

All elements, except background (sky, clouds, grass, and frame) are fractals made in Apo 2.08 3D and all postwork done in Photoshop CS.

Full view for detail.

Update 08-08-09: This deviation won first place in the :iconfractaldreams: Rainbow Contest!!!! I'm struck speechless! What a thrill and I can't tell you what it means to me to have my peers think this was worthy of the win. I never in a million years thought this would win. What a great way to start my weekend. Thank you all, my friends, and I'm so glad you enjoy my work!

This lovely creation is breathtaking to say the least.
Busy without being cluttered, which isnt an easy thing to accomplish.
Each addition seems to be well thought out as to how it will affect the entire piece at completion. Again, a sign of a true artist.
The colors blend well and gives off an aura of cheerfulness.
Its definitely a "feel good piece" that will bring a smile on a dark day.
What i find most admirable about this artists work, and especially with this particular piece is her ability to transcend the generations, which again, is a difficult thing to do.
This piece would look wonderful hanging on the wall of a pediatricians office, but could be equally at home hanging above a desk of a Wall Street broker.
Lovely, lovely work. You truly make the world a brighter place.

I sayed one time: Art needs to be apreciated by at least one person in the world besides the artist to be called "Art",...needs to cause some impact, grow up a feeling inside us, making us sad...or happy...
The magic that transhipped with this beautiful fractal is so intense that makes us get in the master piece.
The details in the remarkble work are so diverse that let us explore freely along it, since the next fractal nature to the smooth color: Amazing and magic,... The fractal is so miscellaneos with such a fan of colors and with a wonderful rainbow that is created with beautiful tones of cold colors like cyan blue, purples and greens, that conbines on a bacchanal of Warm colors such as red, smooth colors and crazy yellows.
Without forgetting to mention about the disposal of the elements like the burterflies, the ivy bushs, the tree and then a calm and warm Sun Set.
Finishing with such an apreciation to this amazing artist, to give us such a wonderful, magical Work of Art! waking up such a joyful feeling within us.

I'm planning on getting this one next! My walls are too bare right now and they need to be filled with amazing art like this. :)

Thank you very much, Lori!!  I really enjoyed making collages with little "fractalets" as I call them.  It's been awhile since I've done any and I keep hoping for inspiration for another one.  I'm still waiting for it, though.  I really appreciate the wonderful comment!

A time ago I was encharmed of this picture, just found surfing for rainbow fractals. Also All my friends greetd me for thi wonderful find. Now I know It's your. Thank you for this joy of all my friends and me.
Now I'm afraid if I have permissins to share your pictures, to add to my collection. Could you explain to me how to be correct with you.
Also I want to ask you for advices to learn Apophysis. A know fdesign and IFS bulider of IFS fractals.
Thankls in advance for you answer :)

Thank you so much for that lovely comment!  I don't mind that you've shared this image.  The more people that see it, the more I like it.  Since you have asked me here, that's sufficient.  Just please don't try to sell it in any form.

As far as learning Apophysis, you can download the program free and there are lots of free resources for it, like tutorials, flamepacks (parameters), scripts, plug-ins (variations) and gradient packs.  A lot of them can be found in :iconfractal-resources:.  This is the link to the Tutorial collection in their gallery: fractal-resources.deviantart.c… And here is a link to additional plug-ins folder of their gallery: fractal-resources.deviantart.c…

There are other sources of tutorials etc, but this might be enough to get you started.  I currently use Apophysis 7X v14 (released 02-01-11).  I find this the most stable and compatible with params from early versions.  If you want, I can email you the zip file containing this version.  It can be a little hard to find on the web, since :iconxyrus-02: has taken it off of his website.  You can note me with your email address, if you'd like.

Let me know if I can be of further help.  Good luck!  I hope you learn to love Apo like I and so many others do!
