When Only Gold Will Do by xzendor7 When Only Gold Will Do by xzendor7
A Full Size Version Is Available On My Site Xzendor7.com - www.xzendor7.com And It's Also Available On 50+ Product As Are The Majority Of My Fractal Art Compositions.


"When Only Gold Will Do" Is A Fractal Art Composition That Is Derived From My Previous Work The "Flight Of Helios".

This Piece Focuses On The Color Gold And Variants Like Metallic Orange And Copper Tones.

At It's Center Is A Deep Metallic Orange Orb With A Nice Glowing Orange Aura, Which Is Surround By Three Layers Of Gothic Curves With Graduated Gold Tones.

Below That Is Another Glowing Orange Orb Topped Off With A Yellow Star That Sits A Top Of A Copper Orange Tone Structure That Is Enclosed In A Gold Envelope With A Lighted Loop Within It's Base.

At The Very Top Is An Golden Overlapping Linear Fractal With Dark And Light Golden Accents Which Finishes Tying The Gothic Structure Together.

With Enough Of These Color Variations And A Nice Grain Fiery Cloud Background This Fractal Composition Set Against A Black Background Really Captures The Eyes Attention.

When Only Gold Will Do Is Composed Of 9 Fractal Elements Created With The GPU Based Fractal Generator Fractron 9000 And The Photo Elements Image Editor.

Hi InfinityFractals,

I Put Together An Explanation Of How I Go About In The Creations Of These At Wikia - fractal-art-compositions.wikia…

There's Also A Video Showing A Basic Example.

The Major Aspect To My Creations Is Generating A Huge Amount Of Fractal Elements; By Properly Mixing These Elements Which Is Really What Grabs Your Eye When You Start Putting The Fractals Together One Can Come Up With All Sought's Of Things.

Since I Like Structures Most Of My Work Looks Like Some Sought Of Strange Architectural Construct.

I Forgot To Add That At My Website - [link] This Short Video Goes Over A Simple Demonstration On How I Put One Of These Together.

It Gives A Good Idea On How To Go About Creating One (Audio Not To Good).

I Need To Do Some More Once I Build A New PC With More Power And Resources So That Viewers Can See The Whole Process Which Can Take Anywhere From A Few Hours To A Few Days If Not Longer.

Tried Doing It On My Present System But The Machine Just Came To A Crawl.

Almost All Of My Fractal Art Compositions Start Off As Abstracts. I Normally Select A Fractal Element (I Create These On A Constant Basis) That Looks Interesting To Me And Then Look For Other Elements Which Would Make A Good Fit.

Once I've Added Three Or More Images And A Form Begins To Take Shape Then My Imagination (Or As I Like To Say My Minds Eye) Takes Over And I Keep Adding Elements That Form An Image That Makes Me Sit Back And Wonder.

Now It's A Process Of Tuning The Color (Mostly Saturation Work) And Working With The Light Levels To Create Depth And Color Richness.

The Fractal Space Pieces And A Few Others I Create, Generally Start Off With An Image Already In My Mind. With These I Then Have To Hit The Fractal Generator To Try And Create Elements That I Can Use In The Realization Of That Image.


These Are Examples Of Direct Creations:

The Throne Room - [link] - Based On The Majestic Thrones Of Lore

Exploration Of Space - [link] - Based On A Vintage Mars Poster

Flight Of The Corbius - [link]

Orb Of Acrellis - [link] - Based The Great Discoveries Of The Early 20th Century

The Sanctuary Of Light - [link] - Based On The Film "The Lost Horizon"

Contemplating Oz - [link] - Based On The Scene In The Wizard OF Oz When The Gang Meets The Wizard For The First Time

The Arthusian Temple - [link] - Based On A Cathedral Photograph Of Another DeviantArt Artist

The Angel Wing Sword Of Arkledious - [link] - In Response To My "Heavenly Angel Wings Cross" Piece

Heavenly Angel Wings Cross - [link] - Based On A Piece Of Winged Cross That I Saw From A Fellow Zazzle Artist

I Love How The Gold Tones Turned Out On This One.

To Find Out What Video Drivers Support You Have In Your System You Can Use The TechPowerUp GPU-Z Utility Which IS Available For Download Here: [link]

Download And Install The Utility; When You Run It At The Bottom Will Be The Drivers Your Video Card Supports Indicated With A Check Mark If The Drivers Are Installed.

Lily, If Your Video Card Supports It The Latest Drivers Will Automatically Install The CUDA, OpenCL, OpenGL And Direct X Components Like Shader Language 4 Or 5 If Your Card Is Direct X 11 Compatible.

AMD/ATI Cards From HD4300 And Up Support OpenCL And OpenGL

nVidia Cards Support CUDA, OpenCL And OpenGL. Since nVidia Had Developed CUDA Before OpenCL Went Mainstream Many Of It's Graphics Card Lineup Support It.

AMD/ATI Abandoned Their Proprietary Rendering Language In Favor Of OpenCL And Are Currently Supporting OpenCL 1.2.

In The Near Future Many Graphic Companies Will Be Supporting OpenCL Rendering And Audio Companies Will Be Supporting OpenAL, Where Just Like The Graphic Cards The Audio Card Will Be Doing The Digital Processing Taking That Load Off The System Processor.

Thanks Peter.

If You Can't Get Fractron 9000 To Work On Your System It May Be Due To The OpenCL Driver.

What I've Done Is Just Uninstall The OPenCL Driver On My System Since The AMD/ATI Implementation (Version 1.2) Just Doesn't Work And Instead I Run The Application Just On The OpenGL Drivers.

It Takes Longer, But At Least I Can Create My Fractal Elements.

Didn't understand all of this but I'll investigate. I would really like to get fractron working. I assume it runs on a windows computer, yes? I have Vista premium operating system.

:iconxzendor7:
xzendor7 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012   Digital Artist
Yes, Fractron 9000 Works On The Window Platform.

I've Tested It On Windows XP Pro And Windows 7 Home Premium.

I Know That Vista Is Problematic With A Lot Of Programs And Since Fractron 9000 Is Still In Beta There Sure Are Going To Be Problems.

There are scrap pieces that an artist makes to mediocre to master pieces. You really out did yourself on this one Rolando, I get a three image concept feel from it. A dementional gate with anticipation on what's going to happen next, a huge jewel, and some sort of deep symbolism.
