The Ethereal Beauty Of Arsencia The Golden Setren is a blending of three of my previous fractal art portraits which include “Arsencis The Golden Setren”, my Art Nouveau like piece “What Dreams Are Made Of” and “Thera The Ethereal Queen”.
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 character 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.
