Haven't done one of those funky titles in a while. :XD: Title's a pun on the words color and spectacular. :shrug: Maybe a little corny, but it fit.

The off-center composition is an homage to =silwenka. I've wanted to do one of those for a while, but I just didn't see a fractal I felt I could do that with...until now. It just happened to look right for that kind of composition. Didn't think I'd get it with a rotational, but everything just seemed to click with this kind of positioning, so off and away I rendered it.

Rendered in a composition very close to this one in Apophysis 2.03a. Cropped the edges a little--no postwork besides a subtle bit of blur in one spot--and did the border and title as well.

Enjoy.

Not bad. I'd consider making it a tad smaller so that the viewer doesn't have to scroll to see the entire piece.

:nod: You're looking at one of my older pieces. Nowadays I keep them at 1200 across max. ;) Thanks for your comment though.

You realize of course that you now must make one called "Technivision" :lmao: Nice gradient, as always :) And I like these much higher amount of renders for the rotation, it makes some cool smooth areas.

Thank you. :D

Technovision...heh, I just know that's going to come out as the right title for a fractal down the road. Thanks for the suggestion. :D

Thank you. Yeah, they do. :nod: :D

Mostly, except for darker ones. :) I've found black works well if I want to hide certain details of a fractal (ie, how circular or how not circular it is, and so on), and white works just as well if I want to emphasize all the aspects of a fractal, like the one in my avatar. :) The colors in between work if I see a very specific color scheme in the fractal, and neither black nor white highlights it well enough. :shrug:

But yeah, black's pretty useful.

Heh. I was just thinking that the off-center composition was what really pulled this together, and then I read your comment.

Also, I don't think the title is corny. I didn't catch the 'spectacular' pun (though this fractal is), I thought it was spectrum + color.

But, overall, the vibrant colors, smooth lines, and great off-center composition made me notice this one while scanning the 'browse' page. Excellent work; keep it up!

Thank you for stopping by. I'll do my best to keep this trend up, then. :) Glad you liked the piece.

Well it's mostly 2 colors, not a spectrum. But I'm a sucker for spectrum gradients in these things so sometimes it does come up. :nod:

Yeah, the name just reminded me of the word 'spectrum.' Now that you mention it, I guess it doesn't really fit. :giggle:

very nice. I would say that there's a little too much black space at the bottom of the picture, but other than that, it's very stunning.

DeepChrome Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. I kept trying to crop a little of the bottom, but not so much that I lost the composition's effect. I think next time I'll try it with less black space. Thanks again. :) Glad you liked those parts that appealed to you.
