Greetings One and All Fellow Artists and Friends.
Here's the next one in no particular order of creation from the Objects and Shapes Series.
Since I was into Sci-Fi mode this past couple of weeks I had decided to do something that involved a Fractal and combined the 2 together and came up with this one that I sub titled "The Last Star Fighter" for your viewing pleasure..
Once again I was playing with mirrors and this was the results from that.
Thanks for your continued support/comments/favs and for just being You!.
Created in Apophysis 7X and Bryce Pro 7 using basic objects and shapes with added post work in Photoshop Elements 8.
See you Friday with more from the Vaults of the Fractal Factory...
Some have site mailed me in regards as to why I turned off the "ratings" below my images and since it seems to concern some I decided to explain to those who follow my work that I did so because some I've been told are purposely "low" rating others images to help thin out their competition as they feel threatened by those that actually deserve said ratings and I'm not going to get caught up in some childish folks games and believe that those that do this need to get a life and grow up.
IMO if I take the time to view your work that means I like it and don't view it just to view it as some call a click for a click and if your ratings is on I have always chosen "5" as I believe that is what it deserves.
As for adding to my favorites I look at it as If I took the time to view it then it's going in my favorite folder period....So by turning off my ratings I am just one less person you can do that to and I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.Sorry if this is an issue for some but that's who I am and how I roll and those that know me know I'm not into mind games.I'm no more than a self taught artist that enjoys others art and is why I'm here and for all the wonderful friendships I have made along the way..
According to the stats I've been part of this community since 2003 and come November it will be my 10 year anniverssary and I have honorably saved artist's work 12,220 times and counting...
That's a statistic even I still have a hard time grasping...lol...

Ratings shmatings! It's the art that counts! I don't see the point of ratings anyway, that's why I've turned them off on mine too.
The Last Starfighter, huh?? Funny, this made me think more of the work of H.P Lovecraft than that classic 80's movie!
But maybe that's just how I see things.
Cool work, man!!

You can turn the ratings off? Do I get anything for high ratings.. like maybe one of those decoder rings that doubles as a whistle?.. Does someone keep a list or something?.. I personally just post art here, It took me 30 minutes to figure out how to answer a site email the other day... .... anyway... this image is like wow.. To me it kinda reminds me of Battlestar Galactica, either way, it's awesome.. in absence of a rating, since you have them off, I give you a "Happy Face Sticker" and four Gold stars... and maybe a note in the corner of the paper that says, "Good Job Jimmy!"

Stellar image my friend... and I am in total agreement with your choice. I have been hashing out the same idea for the past few days. I agree that it is a personal choice to fav or not, and shouldn't be an obligation. I don't like head games either.
Thanks for helping me decide...!

wow! looks like a cathedral Will, vast coolness in this image my friend, i enjoy the bryce series. the rating system is a pain in the butt i think, cold hearted people are doing this for exactly what you said. i have and never will rate below a 5 if they accept rates, and for ones who don't i try and let them know a 5 or better in my comment. we all work hard at our art. many have suggested to the admin that they should dump it, i agree, but they will not do anything about it.

oh no you not going to loss no sleep. hahahaha just kidding. rateing and all mean nothing. I do not put you down for all of this.
I just read yesterday in a art magazine that the judges had voted for the art works that going to get the prizes. there was a people vote box place in the art show also and the people voted came out deffer than the judges. so it do not matter.

This is beautiful, love the perspective and the kind of *water* effect~ Sweet work, my friend!
And I thank you for your opinion on ratings. I've always felt awkward whether to leave them off or turn them on, but between yourself, Mike (Faemike55) and Seth (barryjeffer) offering all your opinions, I've decided to turn ratings off, too.

Well Will you have me stumped with this one, it's kind of like an inter-dimensional, or time continuum corridor, or I don't know what. But I like it and that is all that matters.
Now your rating here that's an easy one, you get a rating of you confused the heck out of me with this one, my top rating. So Congrats Will your the first to ever get that rating.
