Fly by lucid-light Fly by lucid-light
Software used: Apophysis

I feel like screaming, I want to fly but something's holding me.

EDIT February 15, 2012: On the concept.
Many people find the concept dull or not very original.
It "just" expresses my current state of mind. I have autoimmune thyroid disease which affects my daily life.
I say I wish to fly but actually I want a lot less. I just want to be healthy and strong again.
So the shapes basically describe the longing to be free and the illness that holds me. Colors are mix of resignation and fierce anger.


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

First, the pro's: I find the detail in this piece of art outstanding, the color pallet you chose is beautiful, the cool colors mixing the with warms in a very smooth form. Also The bold lines make this very interesting, my eyes don't stop looking around the picture, as well as the mix of light and darks.

Now, the con's: I'm failing to see the point in this picture. Though I do find the technique and time put into this astounding, I can't tell what's going on. I understand it's about flying, and I see the feathers, but I do not see the connection within this. What's going on in the picture seems a bit random, the rings and the detail inside the feathers.

What to improve on: Still, the concept of the picture is nice, I have a view bones to pick. What makes something fun to look at is the concept of the triangle, where you have one main point and two supporting points in a picture to keep the view entertained and enchanted. In this picture, I only found two, the main circle that comes at me and the white in the upper right hand corner.

Let's not forget the main focus point. Though detail is nice and entertaining, there comes a point where it can be a bit too much. For example, if you surround a fairly "plain" portion of the picture with intricate detail, that focuses on it and doesn't overwhelm the viewer.

I hope this helped, and I hope you continue to do amazing art such as this.

I was brought to your picture by how beautifull it was. It is very original. Your use of a lot of the colder colors and a few warmer colors towards the middle. It gives off the feeling of falling leaves to me personaly. I love the use of purple in this picture it gives off a very bold but also soft feeling. All the curves if the shapes bring focus on the painting not leting the viewers eyes go astray. How it gets dimmer and darker toward the edges not only brings the viewers attention to the center of the peice bt it also gives the feeling of mystery. Darkness and light if done right can be the most mystifying thing and i feel as if you have done that right. This picture leaves the viewer with pictures of fantasy and mystery, not only that but it also reflects the madness of everything always moving and changing. It is a very Very nicely done piece. Great job :)

Thank you :) I use Apophysis, it's sort of like Photoshop for fractal art, only instead of drawing with brushes I draw with mathematical functions ;)

Stunning, I'm very drawn to this picture the colours and intricate patterns are truly lovely, well done <3

p.s. I saw above that you suffer an autoimmune disease, my daughter had two  autoimmune problems crohn's and alopecia which she has successfully cured by diet and study. I think you may find her blog and videos helpful and up-lifting.
