Said I'd shoot for something "more like my style" when I made Prismatica, and I did it! Hooray! :la:
You know when a concept title suddenly pops up in your head like a wild Pokémon and won't leave until you put it into an artwork? Well, that's what happened for me this time around. I took it as a chance to experiment with green a bit, since it's one of those colours I don't use very often on its own, and I have trouble making good green fractals without adding blue to them... This one looks quite okay though :nod:
I should definitely make a tutorial on how to do these stained glass fractals and I hope I get the time to do so very soon - they're incredibly fun to make.

This picture is really nice! This is my first critique, so...

Vision: The picture shows what to me look like leaves swirling, which obviusly represents the forest. For the leaves to swirl, a gust of wind would have blown them down, the forest murmuring. A really unique outlook on a subject which makes you think about the art.

Originality: I haven't seen any other pieces of art like this, so it is very original. It's not like fanart, it is your own idea and is not based on someone elses.

Technique: The art has a lot of detail and is neat and clear. You have blended the colours green and yellow very well to create a forest like colour scheme. It looks very proffesional.

Impact: When looking at the 'Browse art' screen, this piece of artwork stood out and I immediatly wanted to look at it and add it to my favourites. The coloours are bright; this piece of artwork stands out.

Deviousness: Overall a very good piece of art with lots of detail and originality. To me, the title makes sense and goes with the artwork, and the art itself stands out a lot. Well done!

This is absolutely amazing. I was completely blown away by the colouring, the texture and the designs. I love the way you made the shapes look like leaves and water drops at the same time. The way everything in this picture shines is really eye capturing. The way you connected things and went in to detail with the design in the background really makes the picture flow. Great job on varying the colours and shades, it's like I can't look at enough of it at once. The black outlines make a very bold contrast against the green, yellow and orange, making the picture more alive. You did an excellent job of keeping the picture from being symmetrical, it makes the entire thing exciting to try and decipher. I also like the droplets, or sort-of-circular-things (don't know what to call them) that also fill the picture. They are reminiscent of water, it gives the picture a very lush feeling. Fabulous job on the shine, its as if light is not only reflecting off the leaves, but glowing through them. All in all, it is a powerful piece of artwork, and quite unique. Your artistry is very talented, and the vision of the picture is beautiful. It leaves a huge impact, fantastic work on this!

This is just my opinion but I think all the black parts on this drawing look like the night sky with small stars in it and then all the giant green leaves are falling from this great tree in the sky that protects all the people in the gutters that look up at the stars.
