Hello, and thank you very much for you nice comment !
How I do this ? Not very difficult I must say, but not very easy too...
Begining by creating a fractal with JWildfire, than working on that fractal until you reach something that you like and render it.
And finally work again on it in Photoshop to delete what you want see, to give depth and perspective with the help of some filters (in particulary the fractalius filter from Redfield), and the finalisation of the work is done by adding some light effects and shadows to increase the realism.
Light and shadows are the key...
I'm sorry for the late response. It's been a long time I hadn't opened my account here in Shadowness because I had been busy for work.
Oh wow, so that's how you did it. Very nice, huh. I hope I could have that JWildfire you said so I could try.
But really awesome huh. Keep up.
