Duckies again by =dark-beam ( Featured by SaTaNiA )
I like this piece because it is simple, no it is not. This piece of art is a gem, I looked at this very closely, there are pearls in this work. What is really nice is how leaves when they get smaller turn into mushrooms or some kind of fungi. I did notice the wings they are not to be overlooked. The feathering helps diversify the differences in the work of art. All the lines for veins and feathers make a flow for this work that holds it together. This piece not only has wings it has heart. The muted colours make it perfect for the darker background colours, and that is what help raise the true work, all the colours work harmoniously together. My favorite part is on the right side it reminds me of a pearl reef. I do not understand how it is done but the picture seems to grow and have a life of its own. It is the tiniest details that have not been omitted that make this a really fun work of art.

Confessing that I know nothing about fractal art, I can only critique what I see......The play of light and dark gives a wonderful sense of lace and lightness. The colors harmonize and give a sense of dancing shapes. The movement and interaction is lively and graceful, drawing you through the picture. I found the bottom center a bit jarring, but undecided whether it's from the color intensity or the shapes. The patterning reminds me of insects wings or lace. These are my favorite colors and the pearls make me think of my Nanie's necklace. The different pattern repeats are well spaced, the changes make you want to take a close look at the details to see what it is that you might be missing. I'd love this displayed on my wall and will work on saving a bit for this lovely artwork.

Wow. Your fractal work gives a sense of complexity and simplicity simultaneously...cognitive dissonance graphically presented.

Is it okay with you if I repost some of your work on the Pen.Up site?
I would really like to have more artists exposed to your stuff.
