The Four Elements by RedundantButterfly The Four Elements by RedundantButterfly
I decided to do a fractal representation of the four archaic elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.
It's pretty much self explanatory but i actually quite like this one, and it's a nice balance. Please comment on what you think about it!
like them, Which one??


Made in Apophysis and Photoshop CS2

I liked this the fire and the water one looks awesome, the air is the right kind of wispy. I've thought that the earth one could use more color or something, make it more substantial or heave feeling.

Love the subtle colors and the flat earth versus swirling water, unpredicted air, and slender/sharp fire. <3

Haha this is funny, I've recently made a scetch for a homepage that looked almost exactly liked this :)

I'll guess that's a good thing, means you have great taste =)

One thing though I think you should consider using another font, perhaps something that doesn't draw that much attention?

thanks man, lol, yeah i've had a couple of people say that they've though tup similar things.

yeah, do you think it's too "BLaRRGHHh"?

sickeningpessimist Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2006
Not the fractals they're elegant, but the way you framed them and the font lowers the overall perspective.

Do something about that and it'll be alot better, trust me.

RedundantButterfly Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2006
what should i do about the frame then?

i'll look for a font that is less in-your-face

sickeningpessimist Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2006
Well first off I think you can make the white frame a little bit subtler by using a smaller line or giving it some opacity. When I frame my works I usually go with something about 3 px, it's not that visible but it's still quite a difference from nothing. Also when (if) you are gonna do the framing once again I would also suggest that you give your work some more space, so that your works don't look so crowded

yeah it's cool. the render didn't work out quite as nice as i'd hoped, but i didn't rerender... so it's a bit too grainy for my liking
