Dramatic in a subtle way, & while I'm not exactly sure how much I like the black, I gotta admit it makes your center spirals kind of sit up & say ""boo !". :lol: One thing I DO say is it's the kind of fractal you just kind of have to study...because you just can't glance at it & say awesomeness & trot off to FB.

Stunning work Janet. :)

I'm glad you voiced some constructive criticism. The black borderish effect was sort of an accident, but I kept it because it was at least different for me.

This is not a work that I'm emotionally attached to. I learned some things in making it, and I'm proud of the craftsmanship I put into it, but I don't consider it one of my best. But it's still nice to hear that it's a work that invites study.

Your FB comment is priceless. Thanks for making my day!

Very dramatic and powerful. And almost symmetric! :-P

Immediately evokes classical scenes (Titian, Michelangelo), and the contrasts of lighting are so deftly managed!

Beautiful piece! I love the earthy tones and natural textures. Do I see marble, wood and metal in there? Stunning. :clap:

But aside from these, there are no words for how much I love this piece.

Striking image. I like the earthy colors and the light and the way the main shapes seem to be coming at the viewer out of the background, like an explosion.

Thank you so much! That's a goal of mine -- especially with symmetrical shapes -- that there's a lot of new things to see everywhere you look.

I love how the image 'pops' out of the background and every time I look at it I see more details I haven't seen before. Texturing is awesome and still so subtle and of course, as always you hav a knack of getting just the right colour and tonal mix.:clap::clap::clap:
Reply
:iconinfinite-art:
infinite-art Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011
I'm not sure it's as much a knack as it is that I'm just stubborn and persistent. When an image crosses over the threshold between ick and might-be-something-in-there, I don't give up until it all works.

Thanks for the kind words!

This is such a beautiful work. The rotational symmetry balances it, and all the blades get closer to each other yet without ever meeting. It's like the second before the clash. I also love the palette.

infinite-art Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011
Thank you! The palette took much effort as I always want to include more discord and contrast. It took me some weeks of just living with the different options to decide that, in this case, less is really more!

I wish I were more friendly with palettes too, I fully understand what it means to argue with one's gradients!
I hope to find more options as I go through the masking and artistry course. Perhaps practice will do the trick.

The textures and colors give this a fresco look. And I love the lighting, especially what appears to be backlighting behind the foreground structure!

I see the fresco effects too -- they're something I worked to develop as the image progressed. Thanks!
