DAILY DEVIATION



Thank you, `SuicideBySafetyPin for making this a Daily Deviation, I'm so happy! Also, I thank ~neoshamballa for letting me use their fractal to make this, which no longer exists. I'm happy I got the award for this, and since this is only my first DD, I hope I can make something better and get another in the future! My goal is to get at least 5 Daily Deviations before I leave deviantART.

And via request by another Deviant, it is now available as a full sized, 2500 by 3750 download. For personal use only!

Also, I thank anyone that purchases this as a print, because all of the money for it will go toward my next Camera. Thanks!



ABOUT



I made this to see how well my practice with color & shape has been going in Apophysis. I must admit, this included a lot of luck [I'm the type to press random buttons until I find something decent - I've spent hours on fractals doing that]. This fractal took maybe an hour and a half to create, and I believe a couple of days to render. Thanks to ~neoshamballa's help, I was able to cut about a year off the creation of this fractal! Thank you for the views and the faves, this currently stands as my most popular fractal, most popular Deviation, and most popular work of art.

Believe it or not, the layout was inspired by `Xyrus02's fractal, WHWF: [link]

I was hoping for a DD this year too, but I suppose nobody has suggested one to ^SaTaNiA yet. Hopefully the chance arises :nod:.

You've got a lovely picture here. I won't be commenting on the fractal part of the art as I know nothing about them, but am able to tell you about the impression I got from looking at this image.

The colours of the flowers are wonderful. I love the neutral colour of the gray next to the yellow it just brings out the brilliance of the flowers. The look of the petals would suggest they are water lilies. Each of the yellow flowers do look like they've been raised off of the ground as if they were on water which adds to the wonderful simplicity of this image.

The main area my eyes are drawn to, is the center of the image with the big flower as well as up and down through the middle of the picture. This would be because the yellow flowers are the main points of interest within the entire piece.

You've done a wonderful job in creating this piece. Thankyou for the opportunity of seeing this picture :)

I'm Rick, offering a critique for the #FeedbackFrenzy contest. This is an outstanding fractal. I love the colors: the controlled use of fluorescent yellow/orange against dark gray really makes the main shapes pop, and the gently glowing brownish background with the criss-crossing lines and spotty texture provide contrast with the secondary shapes. it's a wonderful effect. The bilaterally symmetrical composition and vertical format give the piece a very formal feel, befitting the Royal Garden it depicts. There are just enough diagonal lines to add zest, but not too many to disturb the overall peaceful feeling. And the varying number of petals in the different flowers adds variety and interest.

A few possible areas of improvement: First, although the criss-crossing lines overall are very effective, they get too bright in the areas between the main shapes, which distracts from the beauty of those flowers. I'm not sure of the best way to address that; perhaps increasing the gamma or tweaking the gradient. Second, although the depth blur is very effective for the top of the fractal, it is less so for the bottom. My suggestion here is to crop out the very bottom part of the fractal, perhaps right above the two flowers at the very bottom. This would have the added effect of lowering the largest flower and getting it out of the dead center of the piece, which also adds interest.

This is a popular fractal, and deservedly so. It is engaging and very beautiful. I've enjoyed studying and commenting on it.

Thank you for the very detailed critique :D.

As far as the areas that are too bright, I'll have to look into that and move some stuff around, I'd like to see if I can make it any better. And I know what you mean by the depth blur below, that popped up in my mind as well.

I'll see if I can find the parameters for it, and I'll tweak it a bit. Thanks!

Hello, :wave: I'm here to write a critique for :iconfeedbackfrenzy: contest!
I don't know much about fractals, so I'll be short.
You combined 2 colours that work well together. The details you created look very realistic. Also, you have focused parts of it which again makes it more real.
Happy Holidays! :santa:
