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. Themes range from just eye-catching to science-fiction and humor. Pieces come from various galleries of interest, my devwatch, or things that catch my eye.


Four Suns
I've been doing some late-night astronomy-themed Wikicrawls, and discovered a nice little site called by an astronomer (or astronomy enthusiast, but since they talked about working with a team to get time on Hubble, I'm guessing a professional in the field). This has given me all kinds of ideas based off Legit Science for my artwork.

One of these was the 4-star binary system: two cooler-than-Sun stars orbiting a common gravitational center, this planet orbiting them, and a pair of red dwarf stars orbiting a common center in an orbit about the same place as Jupiter's or a touch closer. Probably should've made the red stars a little smaller, don't think they'd actually be that big at Jupiter's distance, given small red dwarfs are Jupiter's size or smaller at times. (Just see TRAPPIST-1...)

Anyways, had lots of fun making this one! I'm a sucker for alien landscapes with multiple suns in the sky. You can blame George Lucas and that double-sunset on Tattoonie in A New Hope for that.

Next up: Probably a planet inside of a star cluster...
In the Light of Two Suns
An alien world, lit by two blazing suns - one red, one blue. Their fire illuminates the sky of this dry, hot world which lies just within what travellers call the Lucky Spot. Rarely in binary systems like this with two powerful suns, do you find a planet that sits within the habitable zones for both stars, and doesn't overheat lethally when the two suns are both on the day side. That's what they call the Lucky Spot. It's a rare, rare planet and enviable for colonists seeking to live on especially challenging frontiers.

Even so, it's not a planet for beginner colonists, let alone beginner space travellers looking to start a colony. It's rough, extremely hot, and full of violent weather instigated both by tidal forces and shifting temperatures.

I recalled some advice given to me a few years back for doing the corona of a supermassive red giant star, and decided to reuse it here. Most times I'll give the stars a nice glow, but it's said that massive or supermassive red giant stars shed their outer layers continually - which makes a very bright corona.
Mellow Nebula Night
A nice Earth-type water planet in a star system with a distant second sun in an orbit like Pluto's. The sun doesn't give too much warmth or light, but it gives some to see by. The nebula is a pleasant addition to the night scenery as the weather cools.
Haven't been on this account much lately. Been posting mostly to my artblog on Tumblr.

Decided to update the account here, clean it up a little, and add some new things. I'll submit more new art to it over the next week. I'm also working to catalogue my art into galleries as well. I've got the System Shock, Spacescapes, and Portal galleries done. It's a slog, but it's worth it in the end. Homestuck and Fractal Art galleries will be done later.

Enjoy the new stuff!

Not Amused
The Goddess SHODAN is not amused. There is a speck in her domain, annoying her.

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, hope you've been well! Sill around the neighborhood? :O
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Around-ish. I pop in periodically to clean out my notifications, send a few comments here and there on stuff I like, and sometimes search for new artwork to admire. :)
Blueoriontiger Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
That's great. :) I haven't been keeping tabs on people, but I do remember you did Homeworld stuff since I was back in college in 2008. Just wanted your opinion on the new Deserts of Kharak game they released. As a Homeworld fan, what do you think of it?
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haven't played it, but the visuals and dev commentary videos I've seen on YouTube? This thing looks stunning.

Yeah, that was...that was a while ago. Ouch, now I feel old. :P
