The Ethereal Beauty Of Arsencia The Golden Setren Fractal Art Composition
The fading off blending at the top and bottom of the fractal character is achieved using a two gradient mask in front and behind the character.
Then a duplicate of the character was placed behind the main charater and a heavy blur applied. Then as before two mask were placed in front and behind this blur and adjusted until a nice fading shadow effect was achieved around the wing and bottom garment areas.
The fractals that I used in this piece were created using the opensource Fractron 9000 fractal generator and the Adobe Photo Elements 7 image editor.
