I remember being pretty proud of this when I made it. I never managed to do anything like it again.

2012_fractal22

This one really just looks like two different light sources, which isn’t too impressive. But, for some reason, I like it a lot.

2012_fractal23

Okay, maybe I exaggerated a bit with the first fractal on this post. I clearly did manage to do something similar, even though it’s not in a straight line.

2012_fractal24

This one would probably be a cool logo. Or design for a T-shirt.

2012_fractal25

I see a smiley face here.

2012_fractal26

Another soft one.

2012_fractal27

This one is not nearly as “smooth” as the others, but wings! I made wings! A triangular tower of wings!

This one isn’t very impressive on its own, I think. But it’s a bunch of triangles! I think it looks like a gate.

2012_fractal12

This one is definitely an eye.

2012_fractal13

I’m reminded of a succulent…or maybe a bunch of eggs.

2012_fractal14

It looks like…a spine?

2012_fractal15

Some kind of winged orb.

2012_fractal16

I’d describe this one as looking like lilypads.

2012_fractal17

I don’t know how to describe this at all, honestly.

2012_fractal18

This one is super messy, but I was happy with what I was able to get. Rings!

2012_fractal19

Just a bunch of shapes here.

2012_fractal20

It’s colorful and it’s glowing. I like that a lot.

2012 Fractal Art (part 1)

I first became interested in fractal art in early 2012. I followed a couple of artists on deviantART who used a program called Apophysis to create incredible fractal art, and I wanted to do the same thing.

As an aside, I can’t remember the name of a single one of those artists.

So I downloaded Apophysis, and got to work creating fractals. Most of what I did was mess around for a couple of minutes until I got something I liked. Surprisingly, I ended up with a lot of pieces I liked.

2012_fractal01

This has to be one of my favorites. It’s a star!

2012_fractal02

I remember thinking that this one looked like a nightmare.

2012_fractal03

Bubbles inside bubbles!

2012_fractal04

Shiny bubbles are always great.

2012_fractal05

This one mainly reminds me of lace. It also reminds me of muscles and connective tissues.

2012_fractal06

This one looks like a bunch of floating monitors.

2012_fractal07

I don’t know how to describe this one. A fancy spiderweb? A rose? It just looks cool.

2012_fractal08

This one is definitely a screaming face.

2012_fractal09

Another one I have no idea to describe. But it definitely looks cool.

2012_fractal10

I actually managed to get some blur on this one! I have no idea how. I never managed to do it again.

There are going to be three more posts of fractals. I made a lot back then, and I’ve somehow managed to find only 41 that I’d like to post here.

Animated Icons (pre-2010)

I used to make tiny, 50×50 pixel icons when I used deviantART. Some of them were even used as avatars on the website. The last three – the milky way, wolves, and propeller hat cat definitely were. I can’t remember if I ever posted the first four online. Since I posted basically everything I drew online back then, I’m sure I did.

All these icons were made in GIMP, and I had to redownload the program to upscale these icons from 50×50 to 200×200. GIMP is a program I last used in 2015-2016, and I’m glad I remembered how to do anything at all. The GUI’s definitely improved.

Unfortunately, I don’t have dates for any of these icons. The last one – the propeller hat cat – was done in 2010, at the very latest.

Nature (2018-08-20)

20180820_nature

This painting ended up getting a lot of attention on…my Mastodon account! I was honestly shocked, because up until then, I’d never received more than about 5-10 likes on any of my artwork before – and I’ve been posting art online since 2007.

This precedes my “current” digital painting style, but I was already on my way there – limited color palette & no lines.

Here is the sketch, for anyone who’s interested:
