I tried banishing blue from my palette this time around, but it didn't work. ^^; I had a golden yellow variant, but I ended up preferring this one because it had more colour and contrast, which in my opinion improves the overall rendition of this particular piece. That, and it's been a while since I last did something contrast-based.
Also, I can't believe I still feel like there is so much to discover about the KPK Wiggbarn formula. It's been months I've been using it fairly intensively now, and it never ceases to amaze me.

First thing: I enjoy viewing your work, as always :)

This piece relaxes me very much, it's got a simple colour palette, and the shapes are very unique.
It's very rallying the the eye, mind and soul <3
(Unlike some other fractals, I don't have to really focus to see what it is)

It makes a great background, wallpaper.. etc. I love it.

The one and only concern I have about this piece is the background.
The background (the rocks) looks like it's suddenly cut in several pieces.
I am not sure if this was intended.
Particularly the middle, it goes mainly from cool to warm.

I enjoy this piece never less, and I sincerely hope you will upload more like this in the future! :)

I love the butterfly shape flower structure,I always love flower and sparkles :D (Big Grin) .
This piece of art has both :) (Smile)

Me too, especially the sparkles. I can't do a thing without the sparkles now. They're addictive :lmao:

It's absolutely lovely :love:
Once I tried to do one with Apophysis but I was not able
to figure it out so I gave up. But you do it with grace :heart:

This one is made in Ultra Fractal, which is arguably much harder to use than Apophysis :P Although it is also more powerful - it's easier to get what you want from UF than Apo, though even then, you have to compromise all the time since you can never get exactly what you're looking for!
Thank you :hug:

This is marvelous, almost like two separate pieces of art work, but flow very well into each other.  Nicely done!

Thank you! I tried something different for the colouring and I'm really glad it worked out. :aww:
miincdesign Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014
It worked out very well!

I really love the contrast of the complicated background and then the very pale and almost flat 'blooms' in the foreground. it makes me think a bit of your piece 'Sumihiro's Heart' that had the white gnarl 'kelp' that stood out so fantastically against the background.

I have to grin at your mention of trying to banish blue from your palette -- it's only one colour, it can't be THAT hard, right? right?! heh.

Thank you so much! I didn't expect someone would think of Sumihiro's Heart with this piece, since they are structurally very different, but you never know. :nod:
I mostly try to banish blue because if I don't, I end up using it in nearly all my pieces... I'm heavily biased towards my favourite colour, haha. But I'm glad I kept it down to a minimum in this one (yeah, that's a minimum for me!) because the purples make it look better. :D
