Self Reflection by nmsmith Self Reflection by nmsmith
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...

This one made me think about a chevalry symbol concept, Rusicrucian style.

It has a look of "pearl" to it also.

Like the comment before mine, I haven't seen your work in quite a while, so I thought I'd stop by to see what you'd been up to.
You continue to amaze me, and I'm still in awe.
Stunning work. :heart:

Haven't had much time to post any new stuff in a few weeks. Too many projects, I guess. I'm so glad you stopped by. Hope you're doing well, and are happy. Have a wonderful evening.

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.

I uploaded a new version that implemented your critique - however, it's not showing up. Think I'll wait a while, it's probably cached in their server. That should update in a while.

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.
