texture of a dream by NatalieKelsey texture of a dream by NatalieKelsey
to find out who you really are:
(the texture of a dream)
walk the stairs of your brain like an escher print
(the sound of a thought)
run your fingers down the hallways to feel the music there
(the scent of a memory)
remember where you are from
(the color of a song)
hear the rainbow wind itself around you
(the taste of an emotion)
feast on all that you are, all you will be, the 90% locked inside

Beautiful design, I really love those spiral patterns in the image on the right. It reminds me of that interesting circular pattern I found a while ago, but never managed to get anything good out of it.

I do think this flame would benefit from some brighter colors. Okay, not brighter "colors" just brighter versions of the ones in there right now. I'm thinking a slight contrast increase and a fairly big saturation increase. Stick that on a white frame and you have yourself a very print-worthy image. ;)

:giggle: Sorry, this was SO dark when I started, and this is at full saturation with the render, and then I fixed it in gimp and did FULL saturation there, as well. I just can't get it any brighter. :(

Hmm...I wonder if you put the master scale to something really high, then compensated by reducing the zoom, if that would work. :|

I never use zoom, and the master scale on this is 25.

That's what I mean, master scale increases the total value of zoom and brightness on its own. Since zooming in increases render times, by increasing master scale and zooming out, you should get the same image but brighter, and it should render at the same pace or faster.

Let me know if it works, I've never tried it, but in theory it sounds like it might.

I may have to add it to a tips & tricks tutorial for Apo.

I don't know what I love more, the wonderfully subtle color scheme or the intricate, elegant detail. Wonderful fractal!

Ooooh, this is very surreal. But where are the flying pink bunnies? Don't they randomly show up in most peoples' dreams?

Um. Never had one with flying pink bunnies. I think you've been around your mom too much. :giggle:

great job with the texture and colors of this one.. wonder how it would look with a more dramatic color scheme though (with some whites and blacks thrown in for contrast).. but it's perfectly unique and lovely as it is too :thumbsup:

:iconnataliekelsey:
NatalieKelsey Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the critique! :D I agree that something more contrasting would be great but nothing i tried pleased me until this. I'll keep playing with the style though, maybe find something that works.

Very cool! I really like the comments you added to it. I found myself studying each side, looking for the similarities between the two, instead of the differences, if that
makes any sense. It makes you stop and think and study, which is really awesome! :thumbsup:
