Wonderful effects and colors: very 3D and graphic. I love the background you used, too.

Yeah, I'm digging that checkered backgound. Very whimsical and comocal looking

Not only that, but I also dig the shadows of the spiral shapes against the background (I think those are shadows)

The 3-D ness of the spirals help bring the piece all together

Alltogether an excellent piece of work!

VERY different from what would be considered a "normal" fractal image

That looks so rad!!

It reminds me of that pinball game from the 80s...where you had to roll it along differently leveled planes and hills and stuff...any idea what I'm talking about?

;) Just a big fractal lull I have been in for a while. I hope to break out of it soon but I must admit, it has been kind of refreshing doing different things. I'm always here lurking around in the shadows tho, you'll never get rid o me. Muhahaha!

We all go through that. Sometimes a break helps...but usually I just keep making fractals...sooner or later something jumps out at me and fires me back up.

This is really a fun piece (as the first on eto comment said). Very much like a lunatic professor as a children's movie.
You have really taken into consideration who is your primary viewer. I bet your nephew liked this, it's so like something a six year-old would like in my opinion!

The colourful shapes are truly imaginative, different and new to the fractal scene. I'm impressed how you avoided all those things one is accustomed to seeing when vieweng a fractal piece (ie. black, fragile figures, etc. you know the drill!).

Very happy piece. Wins you over with it's colourfulness and positive attitude without denying the darker shades. _VERY_ good job overall!

Hee, never admit your skills are based on a coincidence. ;)
I know what you mean. The best pieces (fractal or whatever the style) are those that aren't guided too much by ourdefinitions of what 'should' be in the image (or what it should be).
Actually this piece looks like you didn't think "notblacknotblacknotblack" (etc), but more like you didn't think "I have to add black", u know. Like you let yourself be free of the common form. Or whatever. I'm rubbish at explaining things.

And it is really fun!

Thank you so much for the kind comments.

I didn't really try to avoid anything with this piece...it's just that while we have a good degree of control over the outcome of an image, fractals have a way of taking you where THEY want to go, and this piece just screamed "fun!"...know what I mean?

That's crazy! It's great! i wouldn't have thought this was a frcatal piece at first glance! It's cool to see something very different in fractals!

Totally groovy. Love the checkered background. Must have taken many hours and layers! Superb use of colour and collage type effect - though I guess this isn't a collage but layering in UF?

:iconsharkrey:
sharkrey Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2006   Digital Artist
Thanks. And yes, this is pure UF...no post. It's 29 layers and I can send you the params if you want...

I've actually had the spiral shape for about a month. A lot of times I find a shape I like, but am not quite sure how to treat it. So I just play with it for awhile...put it up for a day or two...play with it again, etc. So not many hours really (actually about 6 when I got an idea of what I wanted to do) but I've been playing with it about a month.
