Firstly, this is a great piece there is no arguing. The tone set gives a ominous aura (like the last breath before the waves fall). If I was to interpret from my perspective, I feel like the witness of a natural tragedy right before it begins, accepting its inevitable occurrence (as though watching a comet hurl towards you) and the blue feels like the setting that's behind the the event, a state one doesn't focus on as much. To me at least that's what the blue signifies, I could be (and most likely I am) wrong but I believe the contrasting blue has it's place in this piece.
Once again good job.

Seeing this in full view is mind-blowing. When I first saw this, I seriously thought it was a painting, not a fractal. I wish I could be like you when it comes to this. This piece is simply magnificent and I would SO hang this up on my wall!!

I love the earthy tones and the feel to it. The blue that's thrown in, isn't bad, but to me, seems out of place. It does make it interesting being in there though. I've also noticed that if you turn the fractal around, you find odd shapes and stuff. At least to me. Pretty sweet!

Overall, I definitely give this beautiful work a 10! <img src="…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart"/>

The full view of this piece is simply stunning and it is one of the best fractals I've seen done like this. I'm actually really impressed with this work of your and your works in this style lately.

However, I'm displeased with one aspect of this particular work and I feel that removing it would improve upon it as a whole.

In the center left side of the work is this glaring blue spot. There's no texture there and the blue, over all, doesn't really work with the rest of the piece. It's jarring and unattractive in an otherwise stupendous piece. My suggestion would be to put the work in a tighter crop and shift it over to cover up that garish spot.

Aside from that, I love this one, this is gorgeous.

Your inspiring work has been featured in an article written for #projecteducate, PE: I don't know what to paint.... Thank you for sharing your work with all of us :heart:

Wow, I am flattered! But just so you know, this isn't actually a painting; it's fractal art. I deliberately wanted to make it LOOK like a painting though, so perhaps that is still on the theme for your article. :)

Either way, thanks very much for the feature, and I am glad you like the piece.

Yes I am aware of that, it still served its purpose to inspire very well (:

This is amazing! I wouldn't have known this was a fractal if it didn't say you made it in Apo! You are a fractal god! =D

This is great it has a very raw emotional feel to it. Almost like a canvas work. I like it.

I've never seen a fractal that looks like a traditional paining. I'd be interested in the details of how you achieved this.

You know, I seem to get a comment like this almost every time I upload a painterly fractal. :giggle: That's okay though; for some reason this style has kind of been under the radar for a long time so not many people (besides actual fractal artists) know about it.

This particular one was done with a similar technique to this tutorial: [link]
