Banana-tree, you rock. Did I mention that you rock? Of course you rock.
Now for critique. I like the colors and the alternating blue and yellow spirals. They are reminiscent of the small suns and styilized, pinpoint stars. They really add interest to the piece. I also like how the spirals are not the focal point of the piece, unlike most other fractals of this type. It makes it unique and interesting. There is a slight gradient change, with the top half of the piece being a bit darker than the bottom half of the piece. This is excellent, since the brighter half is where the 'suns' are and the darker half is where the 'stars' are.
The one thing I don't like about the peice is the black lines. I think they could be more well-defined, although I'm not exactly sure how to accomplish that. Well defined black lines would give it greater contrast and make the fractal 'pop' a bit more.
wow, thanks for the great critique! I've been having problems with the black lines, because the thing that reduces their contrast is the px of the first transform, and when I remove it, it loses the texture.. so it's like a price I pay for the interesting textures
thanks again, glad you like this one
Very beautyful, it strikingly resembles one of those typical patterns on senegalese shirts. You also associated it with a song that struck my heart
I would have done lighter colors, but you would have lost the amazing woving.
Hello and thank you for the . It was strange to find that notice in my messages just now, because I was browsing the newest fractals earlier and ended up studying this piece (and have had the song stuck in my head ever since lol) trying to put words exactly to why it appealed to me so much before favoriting it, but ... as usual I feel like an idiot when it comes to making comments, so I hmmmed and decided to come back later.
I can't offer any critique whatsoever; I can only echo what others have said: The symmetry is outstanding; it gives a unique look to this particular "style," and the gradient you've applied to it is the perfect warm golden glow.
I feel like an idiot when commenting too, but I think I've gotten used to writing those "great colors, lovely composition, outstanding texture" type comments because I'm usually lacking enough caffeine to go on and write something thoughtful I love it when other people do make long and thoughtful comments though, and I'm loving your comments so far, so much that I'm actually answering them (I have 262 unanswered comments in my inbox right now)
thanks for the lovely comment, glad you like the piece
