Christmas by lucid-light Christmas by lucid-light

Christmas... kind of late, I know :dummy:
Actually, this is my entry to contest Fractalize your Xmas Holidays.
I spent this Christmas in Slovakia, it was beautiful there (lots of snow, dreamy atmosphere) but really really cold, so I was glad to be back in Prague for New Year's Eve :)

I am quite satisfied with this fractal. I had a vision of it in my mind for weeks; actually since I made Frozen I've had the base of it already done but I wasn't very happy with it back then. It was very dark, silver and dark blue gradient, really a snowflake during funeral kind of atmosphere. Also the shape was kind of too flat and boring. So I tweaked it a bit, changed colours and waited because I was still missing something. Then I discovered ~zy0rg's star shaped blur and everything became just perfect :love:
It reminds me of how I really liked to use pie and flower variation back in 2010... maybe because these shapes always look a bit out of place and grab attention... and they fit my artistic whimsical taste, I like to make things weird :D


Thank you for all favourites, comments, critiques and devwatches! :rose: It means a lot to me.

I think this is absolutely stunning. I love the color, the appearance of texture, the lighting and the pattern. The angle one looks at is from is also visually appealing. Definitely get the Christmas vibe from it! Overall, it is beautiful! Whatever you are doing, it is working well, keep up this amazing work! I love looking at it! You have me interested to look at the res of the work you have done, and any work you have to publish in the future! Thank you for sharing your art with me, I think it is wonderful.

As a seasonal piece, this image contains a remarkable level of detail; it is an intricately-crafted composition with a lovely range of tones and textures. Fine work.

Great work on this. It looked very Christmas-y even before I knew it was supposed to be that way. The red designs looked like poinsettias on first glance. Great work on this. :)

The word Majic means something done without knowing how its done. This image to me, like all of your work is truly magical.
I am happy to sit and wonder how you could possibly construct pictures of such depth and complexity. The interlacing forms, shapes and colours that you achieve are mind-blowing.
I do wonderful things with brushes and paints or so I am told, yet for me, your work is utterly fascinating and absorbing.
You have my respect and admiration. :)

I think that people are bound to admire things they can't create themselves. I do admire your painting skill! When I am handed brush and paint, I paint like 5 year old :D
