Newest Deviations

I am in general, a digital artist. My gallery mostly consists of fractals made in the Apophysis freeware program available on, and digital paintings done in Adobe Photoshop (currently CS3) with a 21-inch Wacom Cintiq tablet.


My favorites range far and wide across DA. There's no real one theme. Pieces come from various galleries of interest, my devwatch, or the Most Popular page set at "Last 3 Days." I'm now also watching Unburried-Treasures and am finding quite a few new things for my faves. I just pick whatever strikes my fancy, be it known or unknown. I don't really care, just as long as I like the piece.



coutureSHODAN by DeepChrome
Did this on a Livestream for some friends last night. It turned out way better than expected. I'm especially happy with her clawed hands and her face.

Yet another of my android/gynoid concepts for SHODAN. It's inspired by her boss fight form in System Shock 2, and maybe those old chrome gynoid pinups - the name of the artist escapes me but the guy's known for them.

Anyways, despite the transparent dress, there's really no nudity involved - because she's not the sort to install the naughty bits into her bodies anyways. ;) That's just for insects. Not immortal machines.
LOL @ UR SWAG, INSECT by DeepChrome
I drew this image - except the T-shirt which was adjusted in Liquefy from its source image to get it onto her - in response to a "Draw your favorite character in this T-shirt" art meme post.

After seeing the design, I just had to. SHODAN would totally wear that shirt.
Someone Is Going To Die by DeepChrome
Someone Is Going To Die
I'm not sure who would have the guts to do this to SHODAN, but they'll soon be Past President of the Living Cub.

I was going for a sillier cartoony format, and this was in my earlier days of my current System Shock fandom. Still, I like it for the sheer lulz.
MicroDOS Stuck in a Donut by DeepChrome
MicroDOS Stuck in a Donut
This one and the previous were both done in two separate Livestreams. That must have something to do with my slightly sadistic notion of getting poor Micro stuck inside sweets.
MicroDOS Stuck In a Cake by DeepChrome
MicroDOS Stuck In a Cake
I'm not sure how little keychain-sized MicroDOS managed to stay stuck in a bowl of cake batter and then a cake pan long enough for it to bake before anyone realized she was in there. Maybe she was in sleep mode?
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: Whatever's on my iPod
  • Watching: My glorious 22" widescreen LCD monitor
  • Drinking: Water. Always water.
It's been entirely ENTIRELY too long since I posted a new journal.

I'm still mostly on Tumblr, so you'll find more of my art and Portal fanart on there than here. I'm very active on Tumblr, and I have an artblog I'm trying to fill with assorted pieces.

I'm now trying to creep back into fractal art, as Apophysis 7x seems to work fine with Windows 8.

I have just one problem.

I lost ALL of my old parameters from ages ago. Some computer crash, and quitting Apo. The hard-drive that even had the params was completely toasted, and I wasn't the least into fractal art at the time, so I wasn't keen on getting them back. But now, I'm just staring stupidly at my really awesome stained-glass ones and going "Oh. Shit." The ones I REALLY want most is the set I handed out in Aposhack ages ago for my piece RADIANCE, and while I managed to look up that it was made using the Lazysusan variation (which thank god, the default plugins HAS), I have completely lost almost every other fractal-making memory. :dead: To make matters worse I'm pretty sure it was a stupidly easy one to do, cause I made so many of the damn things....and I've forgotten.


If anyone happens to have those old params - I was still DeepChrome back in the day - I would be much obliged. >_>;; Just shoot 'em over in a response to this journal or in a note. Thank you.

Anyways, here's hoping I get some fractaling legs back under me. This machine's so much beefier than the old one, I have a feeling it'll probably just slam out print-quality renders in hours rather than halves or thirds of whole days. :3

I'll probably continue with the fanart, and possibly get back into digital painting when I'm feeling a little less fried. But I need a new creative venture. I saw some amazing fractal on Tumblr -looked like part ngon, part something. And it's inspired me to come back to fractaling.

Anyways, hope the holiday season finds you all well!
Chrome out.

Hey there Chrome,
being a long time reader of your Legacies series and after rereading it, I've startet to write my own little fiction.
Maybe you could give it a spin.…

What would SHODAN and GLaDOS think of AM from "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream"? I'd think they'd be unnerved at least, because if SHODAN is darker and more dangerous than GLaDOS then AM is darker and more dangerous than SHODAN.

Hey there,
do you have, by any chance, still the files for your Legacies stories?
While replaying Homeworld Remastered I would love to reread them :)
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Unfortunately the last computer crash 2 years ago wiped them out. I did have a general outline of where to take the story so if I ever decide to pick it up, I could probably pretty much pick up where left off. Except it's been five...uh, six years actually, and my writing style has changed somewhat. So I'm doubting I'll do that, but rather attempt an originalverse remix. We shall see. :)

However, I believe they're still archived in the deep depths of the RelicNews Forums' Studio, so if you go set your post viewing parameters to like, all time, they should pop up on the Studio.

Ah, found them :D
Going to reread them, cause I'm starting to write my own fiction centered upon the big red :D
