Yes, the February Minimalism challenge proved to be quite popular - and it's been interesting to see how many people have created lots more fractal art in the minimalist style since then!  Its appeal seems to be quite contagious! :lol:

Many of you have generously shared you parameters, which is in accordance with the ethos of this group.  Thank you for doing so!  It is often so helpful for people to be able to actually see how something was done so that they can go on to experiment in their own way.  As always there is an element of trust involved, and that is that no-one will use the same parameters and pass them off as their own.  We also encourage the principle of "Pay it Forward" :nod:

Meanwhile, the Admins of the group have been taking a look to decide which contributions most merit featuring - as if there were any that didn't, but we can't really include all 53 of them!  We all have different tastes and ideas, and we have given our reasons for our choices, which we will share here for your feedback.  The full gallery folder for this challenge can be found HERE

If your work has been included in any one of our features, you are very welcome to use this badge in your artists comments:

"I really thought it was a photo of a staircase, very well done."
"Impressions of a spiral staircase as seen from above and a harmonious colour palette."
"Simple design from the basics of the internal view of a shell, enhanced beautifully by contrasting shades and palette that enable the eye to rest and enjoy the shape without distraction.  Simple and effective!"

"Intruiging..where does it point to?"
"Sometimes black and white is an enormous relief to the eyes, and the simplicity of this one totally appeals to me, enhanced by the subtle appearance of texture.  I love the concept and the title too."

"It is really like an aquarell."
"This is so much like a painting that it would be hard to know it was a fractal without seeing that category it's in!"

Winds of Mars by adrianamusettidavila
"I love the movement in this one..and it's originality"

"A subtle and visually pleasing spiral with restful colouring and perfect composition."

"A good example of a minimal piece. The simple calligraphic style lines stand out really nicely on the red background. "

Melt by FarDareisMai
" Lovely alluring shapes and subtleties in the gradient and texturing.  Most unusual and innovative, yet gives the impression of simplicity.  Nice points of light that accentuate the shapes too."

"The colours are amongst my favourites and draw my attention straight away; the design is so, so simple and the title gives it the perfect description too;  not easy to reproduce!!"
