Experiment 1 - Fractal by PomPrint Experiment 1 - Fractal by PomPrint
Produced on wet Scottish Saturday afternoon playing around in Gimp. This is my first serious attempt at producing a fractal, so I am quite pleased with the result.

I guess it looks a bit 'Alien-like', but that was totally accidental.

Hope that someone likes it.

First of all, this is my opinion. Actually is my first (and probably last because I have a one day premium) critique, so I don't know really how to write a critique. Besides of that, english is not my first language, so sorry for any mistype, wrong grammar etc...

The first time that I have seen this deviation I was stunned by the composition, you choose so well the colors and the asymetrical view makes the picture less artificial. I think that the factral effect, if it not use with care (like me), produces pieces that are very artificious. You avoid that.
Maybe I like this work more because not only for the beauty of the final composition but the concept that came to my mind when I see this deviation: rows and rows of world or parallel universes. And it can be interpreted too like an maille of an armour.
I am agree with you wih the sense of "alien" in the image but I like it.
As I use GIMP and, particulary, this effect, I know that is difficult to produce a fractal like this that have "sharp" colors and no broken parts: so the use of the color and the absence of broken parts says that you control really well GIMP :)

More: i find little strange the shape in some places of the bubble, to be like a star, but is ok.

In general, I find this deviation very original and inspirational (pictures like this are constrains a bit being a fractal), and very well done.

Vision: 3. It is because it was done by experimentation.
Originality: 4. You overcame the constrains of the fractal type images.
Technique 3.5. I think this show a really good tecnique.
Impact: 4.5. The maximum puntuation from me [always there is room for improvements]: I think that this piece is a really standout.

Greetings!

It remember me a type of macrostructure in my ficticious metauniverse called Milegu. I called them "qadena" (misstype of chain in spanish "cadena"). A Qadena it is a collection of worlds that are connected because they are very similar. So two members of a "qadena" don't have to be in the same plane or dimension of existence.
This paint remember me that.

Sounds like something from the works of Kurt Vonnegut jnr (Breakfast of champions springs to mind). Is this the same idea?
