I've been around dA for quite some time. Seen a lot of people come and go. It's been a fun ride and I hope that it'll continue onward. Over the years I've seen a good many fractals from some very talented artists. Below is just a smattering of these I've appreciated.
This piece is just one of many by the artist that have inspired me.
I love the shape and flow of this piece and have tried many times in Apophysis to replicate it and just can't come close enough to make me happy.
The color on this...amazing! I don't even know what to say. I admire and applaud his skills in Xenodream!
C'mon...this one is just plain fun. He was my first contact on dA. Been a huge help and inspiration to me over all these years.
Just a lovely use of little color and focus on the structure of the fractal.
My all-time favorite fractal. I love it! Never been able to make anything close. When I feel like I'm at a dead-end with fractals, I look at this piece and it really gets the creative juices flowing.
I'm still working out how to make this piece. Love it. The clarity is superb. It makes me want to go make a fractal right now! Absolutely incredible.
I could go on and on with different inspiring pieces, technically amazing fractals, and aesthetically brilliant artwork. dA is full of brilliant artists of all types and I'm happy that I've been able to be part of it for such a length of time.
