Breathe

Trying to breathe under water.

I feel like I just fell into water. I exhale. Bubbles all around me. I fall. I struggle. But the water is heavy on my chest. My limbs are numb. I can't swim. I need to breathe. But there is no air.

Thank you for all favourites, comments, critiques and devwatches! It means a lot to me.

This is a AMAZING piece of Art work , all the little details you put in it makes it WONDERFUL, the colours are very vibrant and eye-catching , and out of all of the other deviants , i saw this one first , because it stood out exeptionaly well to me.Your technique is smooth , and gentle , your shading is light - This just sticks out wonderfully to ME and this is just my opinion-overall this is a very good piece of work and, you ahve done a good job at EVERYTHING on this drawing, and should be put up in a art gallery where everyone can see it.

I think this is a great piece of art. It's extremely original; in fact, I don't think I've ever seen a picture like this before. That's saying a lot considering all the art out there.
The technique is well done with the bubbles and sparks of light surrounding the flower. The bubbles are amazing, every little detail showing. The only thing that could be improved for the bubbles is the shape of some of them; a few are too oval to be realistic. This can easily be fixed by expanding or reducing the shape of the bubble.

The lines of light flying from the center of the flower are well made, seeming to have a life of their own. However, around the edges of the drawing, the whole tone of the picture changes. The color and pattern of the lights abruptly change and confuse the image. I would suggest staying consistent till the end.

The flower is great, the way it opens up and layers every other petal with the previous one. The color is beautiful as well, contrasting properly against the leaves. The shaft of light in the middle of the flower isn't quite centered, the light not fully surrounding the middle of the flower.

All in all, this is a solid picture that has the potential to become a spectacular picture.

Thank you.
Well the technical things are quite tricky. It is impossible for all the bubbles to stay perfect circle, I tried ;) About the gradient, it's the same as with the bubbles. The variables have their boundaries, as well as the gradient. If I push it forward to make the edges dark green too, the red moves further from the center and the center becomes green. :shrug:

I think this piece is wonderful! Great fractal-making; I could never really make one of mine actually resemble something realistic. And the little dark stripes and bubbles just add a feeling of fragility and delicacy to it- very expressive. The one thing that that bugs me a little is the color near the edges- it seems to fade to an avocado-like shade, and that's a color that has always bothered me a little. But I do like the transition from the red to the green colors, accompanied by the broadening of the 'petals'- it conveys the idea and concept perfectly, in my opinion. Overall, a great fractal! Good job!

Thank you very much! :rose:
The color, well it's a gradient thing, sometimes it is quite impossible to make it work the way I want it to work :D
I recommend these tutorials to you: [link] and [link] *lindelokse has done an awesome job on these, teaching how to create flower-shaped fractals. These tutorials should help you to create something less-abstract and more realistic ;)

amazing! simply amazing! i was drawn into it when i first saw it. i love the green leaf piece around the flower. the rose is beautiful and i just love roses. they are symbols of true love. i love the water effects on the leaves and the light reflecting off of it. i love all of this. it shows power and love at the same time! the light around the rose shows the meaning of llove with strength and hope. this is the kind of flower i would want if i ever lost someone or if i broke up with someone. nice work!
