What the Eye Refuses to See by ChaosFissure What the Eye Refuses to See by ChaosFissure
I'm not digging the roughness at the top right corner, but at SL13 or so as you see there, it'll take forever to get the smoothing worked out entirely. I might keep cooking the render cooking later, but first I gotta get through exams :3

An outstanding composition; it feels like a classical abstract painting of a nightmare; or, to these eyes, the River Styx. Or a figure standing on a rock outcrop (the top right) battling some ancient evil. The open-ended nature of these pieces is what drew my eye to them; the depth of narrative is truly remarkable for a fractal. Excellent work, without doubt.

I've always been amazed by abstract paintings that I saw growing up. I always wondered what it would be like to mix colors, textures, and shapes in such a way; and recently have been able to do so to my surprise.

While I like many elements in this piece (particularly the texture at the top left, a segment at the bottom right, and the bright segment at the top right), I honestly have mixed feelings on how the flow of the entire composition works. It seems to fit one moment, and then not work the next :S

I absolutely love making these pieces and enjoy how open-ended they are as well. My mind is able to perfectly look at these without needing to know what they are; so I tend to focus on textures, colors, and feel rather than shaping it into something I need to explain.

Constructively hearing how people view my art is very much appreciated. I try to keep my more 'abstract/non-classic fractal' stuff open to more interpretation so I can hopefully engage those viewing it without forcing an evident interpretation of the art itself.

You're welcome; and yes, I prefer the open-ended approach myself.

Excellent job! There is so much in the image to keep the viewer busy. In fact, the top right corner did attract most of my attention. It appeared like a flat stone slab. The entire work has a nice traditional painting touch to it! You should re-visit it some time later.

Thank you for the constructive criticism, I really appreciate it :)

I intend to do more in this style; one of my goals is to create a tutorial for it once I get home (now that finals are over !!).

Finals??? Oh boy! A tough soul!

I always hated this education (was too systematic and I was too much un-reflexive XD) I hope you get through fine for good!

I'm not that good at finals. I have issues with comparing quality of knowledge against a known correct answer and then figuring out how incorrect you are; I prefer to be able to apply what I know to practical things. I suppose that's why computer science has always been fun for me - I can make stuff and learn things on a regular basis much more effectively.

Yes it is true. With computer, self learning and developing personal skills of almost all sorts, is excellent and fun way! I have changed a lot solely because of this.
