Silicon Hive by slobo777 Silicon Hive by slobo777
I'm going through older things and picking out favourites to re-render and upload.

Apophysis and PSP.

It's amazing what a little bit of elbow grease and work can do!Silicon Hive by =slobo777 shows us that a little bit of post processing and work with your own formulas can do for you! Awesome textures, awesome colors, and just all around great work. The whole gallery is full of the same awesome work and commitment and is definitely worth a gander! ( Featured by Platinus )

The bee is copyright to another artist, so I cannot really do that. I replied to your note, however, in case you have time to find an alternative that I would be allowed to use, then I don't mind a challenge to do something as a one-off.

Hey I just discovered this and A) looks amazing and B) I'd love to credit you in the image pic for my blog on Quora called Q Hive. but if you see the image there of the bee (I'll post it on my profile too).... I'd LOVE if you could combine them somehow! It would be beyond spectacular!

Yes, with some post-processing in PSP.

I used a variation of this to get the metallic effects: [link]

I commented already, but I have to say congrats on the DD! I like the choice of this one, it's interesting and different, yet still very nicely done, and that's reason enough to give it a DD.

No problem, and thanks for the kind comment.

I had a vacation in California, a long time ago. Not Silicon Valley of course, though I guess we passed through a few times :-)

Thank you.

The colours and texture are not 100% Apo - I ran it through some filters in PSP. There's a tutorial in ImagineFX I used to get the metallic look: [link]

The original Apo flame is based on two new variation plugins I wrote ( hexes and crackle ).
