An artist created this. I created this. It speaks with its own language. A language of colors. Behind this work lies my failures, yet I refused to give up until it shone with my strengths and weaknesses, as apparent or invisible as they may seem. I created this to be symbolic and unique. Fractals rely on other fractals. Patterns hide within patterns. They work together. This is not a single fractal, it is many. Nature never relies on one single pattern for every creation. It has the harmony of many. I attempted to recreate just a fraction of my inspiration's flawless work.

Every artist relies on human senses to convey emotions through their talent, ingenuity, and equipment. Speaking visually relies on designing a stunning array of colors, shapes, and textures which must be craftily spun into a piece others can admire and appreciate. The style of creating must begin with a type of art, chosen between talent area and preferences. Yet, myriads of mediums exist to express every way to communicate without words. Major rifts in this area occur in choosing to be an artist of a certain sense, or of a type. The word “Artist” sparks thoughts of visual art, as is the most traditional path. This is also the path of my artistic ability.

Choosing a path towards visual mediums leans towards traditional art and recently a new dawn of digital art has emerged as technology has blossomed. This hardware is built for numerous sectors, and gives each a helping hand each year. Movies are getting more digitally edited, gamers are getting better graphics straight from their desktops, and objects can be printed from 3D models. Paints, pencils, chalks, canvas and paper are still a very valid form of visual art, yet we are giving way to a wave of digital artists. This new breed is armed with programs, tablets, math, and a more convenient way to share and communicate each and every piece through the Internet. I am amongst those in this revolutionary group. Art is shifting to meet the modern age, and I follow suit using my talents. I have chosen this path, for I am an “Artist”. I speak visual, I design digital.

At least 4 hours were put into this. Probably more like 6.

All fractals previously unused and rendered through Apophysis for use in this contest.

Its like 4-5 jumbled into one, and it was for a contest. I got a semi-finalist spot, which i was pretty happy with.
