It has an odd feeling of spatial depth, probably given by the alternation between cold and warm tones. I went rather wild with experimentation (don't I always? :confused:) and pulled off something I really wasn't expecting to create from the beginning. The dark areas gave me a really hard time and it still bothers me that they're somewhat prominent, but I'm satisfied with the outcome overall. The intricate designs remind me of a benign force watching from above somehow... something like the non-religious, non-supernatural version of a guardian angel. :nod:

The first thing I thought when I looked at this was how much depth it has!  It looks very three dimensional.  It reminds me of catwalks constructed in tree branches or something along those lines, a whole world to explore.  I love it!

Oooh, thanks! :D It's a beautiful image, and I did my best to make it look like tree branches. You're not the first person who says it does, so I'm counting that as a win!

Il titolo sembra pių adatto č l'albero e non il guardiano, come diceva Spring-the-Vamphog, condivido il suo stesso pensiero. C:
Questo frattale sembra molto diversa, č pių assimetrica, non so come spiegare bene, e ben curata. Mi piace tantissimo l'atmosfera che hai creato.

Ci avevo pensato, solo che i titoli figurativi mi hanno un po' stufato e ho deciso di passare ai titoli astratti :XD:
In effetti Vamphog ha indovinato moltissimo lo spirito del frattale. Ti ringrazio :D

This image is very good because of how the different colors make it look like it is getting deeper and I think to me it looks like the inside of a tree and you're looking up at the leaves so the white and blue parts are the branches and the yellow parts are the leaves and the sun is shining through so they look yellow and I think this is just really nice too look at. Good job.

You are very spot on, once again! I did indeed want to make it look like a branching tree. :nod: I can't see leaves in it, but I'm really glad you can! Thanks for your comment :hug:
