Thats so juicy and liquid!!!!
Reminds me of this Ben Tolman piece.
Wonder what he would do with color. All of his drawings are B&W.

Oh, WOW! :wow: Thank you for the link! I have bookmarked it. That is some amazing work! I bet it would be absolutely amazing in color. Such detail. You could look at it for hours and still find something new to see! I'm honored that this piece reminded you of his work. I really appreciate the compliment. :iconpounceglomp:

I took liberties with his stuff and colorized it as an experiment. Check out my Art on Tribe while you are there.

Those were wonderful!! It must have taken a great deal of patience to pull that off, but you did a masterful job of it! I love them. I have bookmarked that site, too. Thank you so much for sharing that amazing look at Ben Tolman's work He's a man after my own heart, except in B&W. But color really makes the images sing out loud! :sing:

I'd say each of them took around 36 hrs. Entheogens additional time because I needed to identify the plants then research for correct flower/fruit colors etc. Cognitive Transformations took forever because of all the exquisite detail Ben puts into his work. The LILITH was the first piece I did and actually worked with it a long time ago. She stars in a little mini movie (My first animation almost 3 years ago)
Lilith's Journey: [link] . I look back and am somewhat baffled by my progress over time. I would like to return to the digital collage/animation work at some point. Maybe even remaster the old stuff and put them to music. The early ones grew out of a collaborative art game. Rules: Each player selects a bunch of images and places them into a pool. Each creates a set of 10-20 rmix frames and submits them. Then each person takes the collection of frames of all others and creates another mix. Repeat until exhausted.
These in retrospect are very rough. We were working small and in constraints of ~1M total to submit to My collaborator also had a really wimpy PC so couldn't work at the same scale. In contrast my current Mac is faster with 8X the RAM as the system I was then using.
I need to dig them up and build transitions and string them together with new stuff. Most of the other stuff on my YouTube page has been done using ImageJ and IJ-Macros I wrote to deal with repetitive things like rotations and cropping scaling. Now fractals adds another whole dimension to possibilities. Can't wait to get proficient with Apo and start building some scripts!
