I worked out OutsideFate's parameters a bit more and found some more fractal treasures. The hunt will most likely continue. :D
I got the base from here (though it was almost completely modified later on):


The concept behind this artwork kind of came up on its own. I thought of the many people who blindly follow their own religion without much critical thinking about how each belief should be interpreted, and lived. Even as an atheist, I do recognize the power faith exerts on the human race; but being a powerful tool, it also needs to be used correctly, and never be completely separated from consciousness and thought.
Human beings are free to choose whether they believe in God or not; but this choice becomes a constriction as soon as the individual starts being chained to pre-made rules, or fails to respect others, no matter their religious choices.

This is a beautiful piece, and about the concept my take on it is this: I am neither leader nor follower, I make my own path and live by one rule; Treat others the way I want to be treated. Thank You

The title doesn't fit, I don't think.

I thought about it for a while and actually left it as is because a friend told me he liked it. What kind of title would you have given to such an artwork? :nod:
MalcimD Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
'The Days Are Bright' or something less cheesy.

Got it. What do you see in that kind of title, by the way? How do you think it relates to the artwork?

It makes me think of a day in the middle of Spring. The white spots in the pinwheels 'are' few clouds in a light blue sky over a bright, grassy area. A sense of happiness is felt in the wafting breezes propelling the wheels and the motion of nature is all still while moving. Its just the way I see it. :hmm:
