Carme 51 by lindelokse Carme 51 by lindelokse
Ille mi par esse deo videtur
ille, si fas est, superare divos,
qui sedens adversus identitem te
spectat et audit
dulce ridentem, misero quod omnis
eripit sensus mihi: nam simul te,
Lesbia, aspexi, nihil est super mi
Vocis in ore
lingua sed torpet, tenuis sub artus
flamma demanat, sonitu suopte
tintinant aures gemina, teguntur
lumina nocte.
otium, Catulle, tibi molestum est;
otio exsultas nimiumque gestis;
otium et reges prius et beatas
perdidit urbes.

Gaius Valerius Catullus, Carme 51

Latin version of Sappho 31... the most beautiful and famous words ever written about jealousy. This has somehow inspired me while making this, since I was listening to [link] :giggle: and led me to add the red strokes ;)

Every time I look at this fractal, i can't shake the thought that someone put a little lipstick on it. :giggle: Using that shade of red in a fractal in not easy but it really works here. Even the parts where it fades into the background color look neither garish nor muddied. Very well done!

The one thing I think is out of place in this piece is the upper left-hand corner, specifically that little segment of purplish brown. The transition between it and the green next to it is way too sudden and the colors clash. It might be hard to turn that bit green, but I think you could probably do it with creative masking.

But overall that is a small thing in a very well done fractal! I know you are mostly "famous" for your apo stuff, but you should dabble in UF more imho, even if you are just tweaking. ;)
What do you think?

It's really beautifull! :-)
lovely colours, they make me think of nature :) I like the leafshapes, you don't see those that often in fractals (or at least I don't :D)
