Created with Mandelbulb 3D and Photoshop. Background image from my own stock. 
Only 1 fractal is used and manipulated a bit in PS.

another one that reminds me very much of a story by stanislav lem - "der unbesiegbare", which plays on a planet, where only the machines have survived and "live" on, killing each other, defending themselves...
the humans are eliminated by little metal flies, which are harmless as long as there are only one or two or a few - once there are many of them and they feel threatened, they build thick swarms, sort of link themselves together energetically, thus gaining a higher intelligence, surround the victim, build up a high power energy field, focus it on the brain and - knack - one flash of energy erases all thoughts and memories, leaving the human a mindless zombie, doomed to die of thirst and hunger, because he doesn't know anymore that he has to drink and eat...
hmmm, your picture looks friendlier though... :faint:

:D Hi Diet, thanks for your comment again. I still didn't read one of Lem's books, this story sounds quite horrible, compaired with my "Narrow Escape". Freddy Emoticon Icon GIF - Five Nights at Freddy's My piece reminds me more of one of the scenes in Star Wars, Darth Vader hunting Luke Skywalker in his jetplane, flying through a narrow ravin. :)

you're welcome, jan - yes, that's what i said, you don't show these horrors, and that's why i like your fractal manips so much: you bring light and air into them... :D
if lem sounds too horrible to you, but you still like to read, i can highly recommend another book, a classical - it's sort of the other side of the scale, perhaps more fantasy than sci fi, softer and a bit melancholic  - "the martian chronicles" by ray bradbury... i also read that again and found it a very fine book... :D

Thanks again, Diet. I read Ray Bradbury a long time ago...Fahrenheit something. But I'll also read Lem, I guess. And thanks for your kind words about me bringing light and air into my manips. :hug: w00t!

you're so welcome, jan... :D
in fact you are the first one i remember who used the mandelbulb technique in that enchanting "lighteous" way - the first works in MB3D that i saw, sort of scared the sh... out of me, and i found them very creepy and dark...
one of the first of your works that i saw is this one - just read my comment again, that says it, haha...

:) Yes, I understand what you mean. I called these fractal-creatures "frexels", and I even considered the possibility of writing an illustrated book about frexels, specially for children. Your Robi's have the same atmosphere, I gues. Finally I only created 5 frexel-pieces. 
For me, an artwork has to tell a story, or rise questions. A nice image is not enough. You love nature, so do I. And so it's understandable that we both love organic looking fractal images. We also both love SF, and SF stories often have a surreal, kind of alieneating atmosphere. So my artwork has organic looking, surreal, sometimes SF-like elements. :sun:

Wow!  If that butterfly were real, it would be one of the most delicate and lacy invertebrates around.
