Crossed the Delaware by ChaosFissure Crossed the Delaware by ChaosFissure
I was showing my Uncle how I go about making fractal art and created something pretty interesting; this is the result! The title is an allusion to "Washington crossing the Delaware," given the shapes of the figures near the bottom ;p

Apo+Chaotica.

There's a darkness at the heart of this piece; and the technique used is remarkable. I agree with your assessment regarding the title, too.

Although the "Washington Crossing the Delaware" is portrayed in a heroic, hopeful manner due to the lighting and posing of the characters, it's also likely the case that the crossing was all but that.

It's the middle of winter. The water is cold and frigid. You're in a war, not to mention a fairly small group so as not to draw attention to yourselves. The colors are not meant to represent the hopeful nature of the painting, but an attempt to capture a possibly more realistic and severe account of the atmosphere at the time.

I agree, there very much is darkness in the heart of this piece, but that also separates it from the original painting. I don't know what I can say about technique behind this; it's something I've been experimenting with (and still am now), and appears to have turned out incredibly well!
