however, this is made from blank flame ;)

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-01-21
I've seen work like The Philosopher by *lindelokse before, but, this one keeps me interested. Intriguing textures and colors, not to mention details, makes this stand out among others done in this style. Great job! ( Suggested by Jeddaka and Featured by Platinus )
First impression is outstanding piece of Apo3D - great details and technical value :)
Since I'm also an apo user - I do know, how much work goes into composing this tiled sphere style and I can truly appreciate it.
The vertical composition is very 'smart' since this type of tiles does have a tendency to fade away from the sphere center point.
The only detail, which I did notice after few minutes of admiration, needing some improvements is the curves of the 'fireworks' I think , they should be starting in the middle of the brown squares of the sphere. This is a minor detail, which has no big bearing on the overall impact of the image.

Great 3d fractal Chiara - hope you will have more !!!

In normal veiw I see so many things to look at. Not just one object or vocal point. In a way it's a way to keep the person's eyes mezmorized but could be very confusing. Like a spiral of color asking to be looked at.

In full veiw this looks like something a person interesting in outer space would keep hanging up on his or her wall. In this veiw the details are amazing especially on the base of this art. I even noticed the small lights in the background not seen by normal veiw.

I like how the ground goes off into the background too. Not many imaages that are made can do that very well. Overall this is a very well done peice with very well done details.
