Portrait Of Cyiria follows in step with a few of the other fractal base portrait images I've created previously. The main emphasis of this piece was just to focus on creating a portrait that was captivating to look at which was not a trimmed down version as with several of my other fractal portraits.
To that end the face in this portrait occupies over 50% of the canvas real estate, with the surrounding fractals acting as highlights for the fractals that make up the face of Cyiria; which comprise fifty percent of the fractals used to create this portrait.
Portrait Of Cyiria has an art deco artwork look comprising 312 layers of which 95 are fractals that were created with the fractron 9000 fractal generator. The fractals were then assembled and post processed with the Photo Elements image editor into the final image that you see.
The entire image took about 5 days to complete with a great deal of attention being given to the color of the image; as the colors used affect the choice and number of fractals used but most importantly how Cyiria looks upon completion.
A good two days was spent on getting the right color balance since the colors of the fractals that you see, except for the stone and path fractals are not the actual colors of these fractals and getting the right hue mix took quite a bit of time till I was satisfied with the final look of the piece.
