This is exquisite! It's a bit chaotic in the middle but then it's as if the pattern is trying to escape itself around the edges--I love it! You may have rendered me speechless. ;P

Very nice fractal ! I never quite understood what these were, exactly, but that looks insanely cool.

Thanks a lot for the compliment and :+fav:, glad you like it! :heart:

Fractals are mathematically based images, often with repetitive, generated shapes that get smaller and smaller as you zoom into the image (there is no end to the zooming, it is infinite - the "landscape" of this micro world changes ever so subtly as you move in but the detail remains as high as where you started - unlike a digital photograph which becomes more pixelated and blocky as you zoom in). These fractal shapes, like my flowers here, typically manifest as spiral formations. In nature too you can find obvious fractal forms like fern fronds, snail shells, snowflakes, tree branches, river deltas etc.

I must add that I am not a mathematician and do not understand much of what goes on "under the hood" of the program that I use; I work purely in a visual manner to make my art. I find this artform both fascinating and fun to work with.

you're welcome !

oh, thank you. I knew what fractal were, but I never understood how you could make them look like flowers and such. I guess it's not with complicated formulaes then ? That's a relief, ahahaha.
but thanks for your explanation, I think I get it better now !

Well, there are different formulas, which give you the basic arrangement/structure... then you apply what's called a "colouring algorithm" to give some sort of shape to this skeleton structure. These algorithms vary too, depending on what you want to do. I like to use ones that give distinct shapes like flowers, balls, stars, hearts and so on. There are various controls to manipulate and change or distort these shapes - that's mostly what I do - you pick mathematical functions from drop-down lists or enter simple numbers or fractions to change the calculations (and thus change the shapes/design). I also use many layers and masks (a bit like in Photoshop and the like) to build up the picture, add texture, make parts more subtle or prominent... and so on. That's the arty bit... putting it all together to make something pleasing. When the work is done I "render" the image to make the final .jpg picture for uploading, printing or whatever.

It's not an easy process to describe as there are so many parts to the work. But it is creative and fun for someone like me who can't draw or paint for toffee! ;)

uuuuuh okay
wow
so do you know what you're doing when you do that ?
cause I sure as hell wouldn't. ("oooh what does this do let's try it")
but I guess yeah you only need a sense of aesthetism and no hand skill to do that, so it must be really refreshing.
to me, the most important part of art is the fun afterall!
thanks for your time anyway, you really helped !
