I took pieces of earlier doodling I've done, and created a new desktop design. I like the warm pastels of the fractal. The image has an almost oriental feel to it in my opinion - that of Zen, self reflection, self realization...
I absolutely love the centerpiece, border, and color scheme you chose!
My only negative comment is that the background, with the lines running across it, looks like it was stitched together. I get that impression because of the three dimensional quality of it all, looking like it sinks down toward the irregular, rough "stitches" and rising toward the center of the "pieces" (in some places). I think it's a very neat effect, I just don't think it goes well with the rest of this image. A more smooth, or even a fractured look might have been better with the opalescent shell color scheme.
Thanks for the compliment and the critique. I appreciate both very much. The lines were part of the fractals that were generated with Tierazon and ChaosPro. I might go into Photoshop and see what I can do about them and re-post the image. Thanks again.
