this looks pretty cool I know this sound creepy but when I see this I think of a temple surrounded by skulls

I often think that fractals are a mathematician's plaything that, while pretty, lack the compositional complexity of free form arts. Then I see something like this and I am awed and inspired, and I marvel at the hidden beauty in math.

That is exactly why I spend so much time on doing these images.
I am glad to inspire you :)

Aha! A 'landscape' in the truest sense of the word! This really does look like
the kind of 'environment' where creatures could be living!
Nice lighting too J! :clap: :clap::clap:

Thank you Mark! :bow: :bow: :bow:
Looked pretty abandoned, they might be living at a smaller scale... I will zoom in! :)

Actually J, did you ever see a weird old animated movie from the '70's
called 'Fantastic Planet'? This kinda reminds me of a HiRes version of it! :nerd: ;)

I might have a vague memory of it, is it this? [link]

Yep, that's the one!
Hasn't stood the test of time very well though has it?!
Still entertaining in a strange sort of way though! :O_o:
