For the past week, none of the fractals I've worked with have wanted to go anywhere. I got bored of that today and it finally went somewhere Once I saw that the figure shape could be isolated and colored by itself, my mental thought process was "there's a figure with some lighting effects in a cave gogogo." It might have been influenced by what I was listening to at the time, mainly due to the atmosphere of the music.
It's totally not a statement on me moving to an apartment tomorrow, as I'm not moving into a cave!
I'm greatful to my teachers for showing me different kinds of art even though I've never had an art teacher... otherwise I wouldn't appreciate this image. It's a wonderful medium that doesn't do too well in flashy advertisements, lol.
I guess it's like an everlasting gobstopper, but for sight instead of taste!
I'm sure it could serve to be a major attention-grabber as some form of advertisement, maybe for a game or something, at least somewhere online. That being said, I'd expect properly negotiated payment prior to it being used in such a way XD
For the most part, art teachers made me dislike art when I was younger because "it required patience" and because "I was too hyper for them." I forged my own way doing digital artwork, which I enjoyed due to the lack of formal structure and the ability to do things on my own terms. I had some very amazing art teachers in college though, and I did learn a lot from the few classes I took on art.
This particular form of artwork I find infinitely engaging, incredibly challenging, and sometimes very rewarding as well. It can accomplish so much, yet is highly abstract...but I do try to push the limit of what I can do with it in trying to represent emotions and concepts.
That's a very good analogy, actually. I think I'll have to keep that somewhere
