Drift by FarDareisMai

I'm glad that you went ahead and cropped that upper-right corner out a bit! My reasoning is that you are going from a mixture of dark/l...

Stride the corridors of one's mind by Xyrus-02

I really enjoy the atmosphere of this piece. It's slightly hazy, but it provides a feeling of warmth, which the colors do complement to...

Captivating the Ghost by Platinus

I don't think that the grain helped out here that much, besides the title. Rather, I think it's more of a disturbance. It's a little to...

Sandcastles by esintu

I absolutely love this piece. You captured what is, to me, the perfect aerial view of sandcastles on the beach below with the waves bru...




Astigmatism by TwilightAmbiance
Created with Ultra Fractal 5.04.

I never really used masking a lot in my older UF pieces, but I did try it here with some light texturing and I think it came out okay.  More time needed, though.  Let me know what you think!

Comments and critiquing greatly appreciated!
Fever Dream by TwilightAmbiance
Fever Dream
Created with Ultra Fractal 5.04.

This particular piece came out as a result of me trying to explain how I made my fractals to a friend of mine a couple days back.  She wanted me to make something sprawling, but I felt maybe some open space would be nice as well.  This was the compromise.  If a fever dream looked like something, I feel like it would take this kind of form.

Comments and critiquing greatly appreciated!
Sunken Colony by TwilightAmbiance
Sunken Colony
Created with Ultra Fractal 5.04.

I dug up an old set of UF parameters I had done years ago and started tweaking until I got this, which I was very satisfied with.  The old parameters came about from a tutorial I saw from Gurly, I believe.  She did amazing work and I don't think she's active anymore.  Amazing work from her, always.

Comments and critiquing greatly appreciated.
Retribution by TwilightAmbiance
Created with Ultra Fractal 5.04.

Shaking the rust off again after not doing fractals for yet another decent length of time.  Work really eats up at my time so it was nice to have the opportunity to just sit down for an evening and make this piece.

Hope you like it.  Comments and critiquing are greatly appreciated.

I seem to have gotten a DD...

Over 1,000 comments will tip you off to that. :lmao:

So, that's my second DD now.  I'm really interested in this, because Worn in Time has always been one of my fractals that has made me question whether or not it's gallery material.  I guess I can't just judge it from my point of view, but rather from a non-fractal artist's as well.  I see its redeeming qualities now more than I did when I first posted it.

Thanks a lot to everyone who faved, commented, or even just saw the DD.  Knowing that it even caught your eye makes me happy. :)

The Apophysis Group

In other news, I resigned from my position at Apophysis.  I just do not have the time anymore to help out the group with what it needs.  A social (and love) life have interfered. :shakefist:  That's not necessarily bad, though.  Apophysis has brought in some new admins and are back on their feet!  Please, if you don't know about the group, give them a look.  You won't be displeased.

Yngwie Malmsteen

So, I went to a Yngwie Malmsteen concert before getting on here.  For anyone who doesn't know who this guy is, he's a heavily respected shredder.  And he shreds.  A lot.  Which leads me to summing up this concert in a few ways:

- He shredded a lot.
- Everything was predictable.
- The reverberation (and the bass alone) made everything sound terrible.
- The concert sucked.

I came in with an open mind, though.  It wasn't my kind of music, that's all.  Any Malmsteen fans out there that have seen him?
