So... I have two Daily Deviations now?
Okay Misha, you surprised me big time with this suggestion. Seriously. Lots of love for you because of it. :D

I'm very glad I got a DD on this one fractal specifically, honestly it's one of those I liked best among my own work. That makes me twice as happy! :hug:
And of course a very big thank you goes to SuicideBySafetyPin as well, for choosing and featuring my artwork!

Also, I have updated the prints with a high-resolution, high-quality .png source image and made most sizes available!
*** Prints made with a 4000x6000 size render *** For a higher-sized or higher-resolution print, please contact me ***

Thanks to everyone for adding it to favourites, commenting it, and loving it in general. Even if I can't thank you all personally, all of your love is much appreciated. :aww:

My third and last entry for the 2011 Mandelbrot Fractal Art Contest, unless I change my mind on one of my current entries and decide to make a new one before the deadline comes (which is entirely possible).

Once again, here's part of this fractal's bio:

<< The title, loosely adapted from the French for "snowy winter", actually refers to the small white snow dots scattered all over the fractal. It's a symbolic way of reminding the viewer to pay attention to details, as they are equally important than the ensemble at times - much more so for fractal artwork.
The snowfall acts as the all-embracing element of the composition, covering all different color zones equally and softening the iridescent touch. White light zones balance out the glowing rainbow for a paper-like work which, in the artist's own imaginary, would be inspired by a classical Japanese style of art, named sumi-e [...]. >>

It's kind of funny; I think it represents me somehow, like there's still snow falling on my rainbow heart.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-12-20
Hiver de Neige is by *heavenriver ( Suggested by OutsideFate and Featured by SuicideBySafetyPin )
To start this critique, this piece is a nice example of what *heavenriver can create in UltraFractal. The rainbow gradient fits in naturally, and that is a hard tash to pull off in the world of fractals wjere one colour usually finds a way to dominate the utter crap out of the rest.

The shapes in the fractal are almost petallike and add to the elegant finish of this fractal.

If I had to point out a flaw, it would be that, no surprise here since it is me writing this, I think that there are spots that are overly saturated and it kinda ruins the feel a little for me. If the colours were dimmed down a little it would be pretty much perfect! But that is just me being a snob.

In conclusion, this is a wonderful fractal. Be sure to check out the rest of her stuff!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
35 out of 35 deviants thought this was fair.

This is beautiful and amazing. And it is rainbow. Who doesn't love rainbow, right? I think it is amazing And because I try to be fair & make friends I put the fairnesss in my critiques. I was soaked in tears of joy when I saw this. It defines similarity it's not always black & white, but your heart always knows what's right. Stunning colors! They define harmony and I like that plus tomboy at heart and crush on chris wilbourn(don't tell!) And he moved away. :( for some reason I also crush on cartoon characters. Plus I have autism so yeah. :) awesome??

Very very cool fractal, what program do you use to create your work?
heavenriver Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks :D
The program I use is called Ultra Fractal.
DCatz Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014
that's really cool, I didn't know that they had a program just for fractals. It sounds like something worth checking out.

:nod: If you want something for free (since UF is paid for) you can try Apophysis too. There are many tutorials on deviantART for beginners!
DCatz Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014
cool, I will keep this in mind :)

Wow ** In generale non seguo tantissimo l'arte astratte, ma questo mi piace un sacco per l'accostamento linee e colori **
