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.



  • 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.

How's it going?

Good. -shrugs- :)

I'm throwing a new art contest for my superheroines Fury and Justice Girl!  I'd love you to be a part of it.…

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.…

Interesting premise, and looks like characters with some potential - particularly the guy who grew up hating the adoration of S'jet. If I'm not mistaken, it's the same guy who gets turned into a wirehead at the end? (I wonder where his consent figured into the equation. As good for the story as that twist is, it feels somehow wrong - he has to agree to it first or there's no use for a wirehead, because a wirehead who doesn't want to be one sure isn't going to do anything.)

Thanks for reading :)
The consent will cover the next chapter, as he has to deal between accepting to be a wirehead or die outside the tank.
Frankly, I'm a little bit afraid of the tech things, since my sources are mainly the complex enhanced mod and they seem to have no wiki running :D

You might have better luck with the classic Homeworld manual's PDFs. Those should be available online, and are pretty much recognized as canon, except Remastered did some jiggery with the whole Far Jump Core thing when they took their pass at it. But the history behind S'jet and her neural-interface tech is in there, and that is more what you need. Hope that helps!

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.
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I could probably see GLaDOS putting up a brave face at first, then as soon as she's got a good excuse to, she'll go hide behind SHODAN. Who would much rather be elsewhere too.
Yankovic270 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2015
And I'm guessing that SHODAN would do somewhat better at hiding her discomfort at interacting with AM. He is a seriously messed-up AI. He makes both SHODAN and GLaDOS look sane in comparison. Though to be fair I don't think AM would mind being around the two of them. After all he makes it pretty clear that he hates humans. I wonder what'd he'd think of fellow AI. Though your character should stay the hell away from him. Did you know that Harlan Ellison personally voiced him for the video game?
