:bug: This is 99.8% raw fractal - does not use imported images - design crafted entirely by me, by hand, with Ultra Fractal 5.04. 73 layers in all.
Minor post-production tweaks: tonal balance, sharpening, a light overall canvas texturing, addition of sig & watermark.

:bug: Time for a bit of fun! This is a re-imagining of an earlier ladybird fractal that I made almost four years ago. fav.me/d1fbjpm
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :D

This is so cute! I love the original but this one is so much better just because I like the flow of it. My eye is naturally drawn along the curving branch in the middle. This artwork reminds me of the summertime when I look out my window and just see a bunch of ladybugs crawling around the window screen. The contrast between the brown and bright pops of red is really pleasing to the eye. :squee:

:bug: Thanks for stopping by to take a closer look and leave such a thoughtful and detailed comment. I like this one better too but then there is almost four years between the two - the further development of my skills & techniques together with the introduction of a different way of making fractal art with my preferred program made quite a difference I think. :D

No problem; since you were thoughtful enough to join my group and share your artwork with me, the very least I can do is be respectful enough to comment on it. :thanks:

Yes, you definitely do have a unique style, and I can't wait to see more of your work!

Now this is a real exploit. Finding all the right shapes is fantastic. :clap: It's real fun. :D I like the leaves which are rather like ivy. perhaps that was your intention.

Is the title a reference to the police force?

How many ladybugs are there

Thanks for stopping by for a closer look. As this is a fractal the number of ladybirds is probably infinite... if you zoom in to any one of the spirals the bugs just keep on repeating... deeper and deeper, more and more of them! :wow:

Ladybugs are my special symbol. My mother and my grandmother both also loved them, and now that both beautiful ladies have left this world, during times of stress they seem to show up, these little bugs, in the most uncanny of places. You really aught to offer these as prints.

Thanks for your lovely comment, I'm happy this reminds you of your loved ones. :aww:

I'm sorry but I don't do prints. I tried it once but there's no reward in it for me, basically. I want to make art for pleasure not stress about commercial issues. :shrug:
