Sometimes we just fail to understand the importance of considering the simple things... like cherishing that we're alive, healthy, and well loved.

Very obviously inspired by this super awesome artwork:

Gossamer Fragments by OutsideFate

Thanks for being such a great abstract fractals muse, Misha! :glomp:

P. S.: this is a personal challenge of mine: making a 10-layer fractal with just the Pixel formula and the Gradient colouring algorithm. It's all mappings in there! :D

This picture definitely looks like you put in a lot of effort and time! My first thought about this was water droplets, or maybe bubble wrap for some reason. The way you coloured it is a work of art in itself, you never cease to amaze me. I love all the different sizes of circles, it gives the picture the effect of movement. The swirl at the center of the picture gives the picture a look of captured movement, like all the blocks are packed together and the one at the center is trying to move them all. I've been sitting here for awhile trying to see what the pictures in the background are, the fine details are completely eye capturing. I only have one question: what's going on in the top right corner? It turns into solid yellow, very different from the varied shape and colour of the rest of the picture. In any case, a wonderful piece.
What do you think?

:nod: All fractal artists do, although you don't need to know the math behind what you do - you "just" need to know how to use a program. It's a bit like vector graphics in that regard: the mathematical principles behind it are complex, but so long as you can handle the tools and shade well, you can be a vector artist without being a mathematician.

... wow...
I love the colours and i like the way the pattern looks like square bubbles. In the center it looks like there is a set of stairs. I also get the impresion that the center is a whirlpool and the rest is froth and bubbles coming from the center.

Wow! VERY impressive!I like the squares. They really add a unique touch and appeal to the overall picture, and the way you blend all of the colors together is just awesome!

Not to mention, I like the shapes that appear within those squares - like the moon(s) and circles. And, am I imagining it, or is there a spiral in the background, most noticeable from the very center of the picture?XD

Aww, thank you so much! :glomp: Again, colour was difficult to work on, but it kind of always is for me. :lol: And you have a very good eye - the center showcases a spiral indeed!
