This is absolutely gorgeous. It's a pity that internet art thieves are so abundant; I'd love to see it full size without the watermark.

thankyou so much for the compliment on this - i hate watermarks myself and more often than not even those don't deter some art theives but at least putting those watermarks there at least is one precaution in place even if it at times is quite feeble. if ther were less art-thieves around i would not have watermarks - or i woudl put a more discreet mark on my work - but sadly due to certain folks the watermarks are there - sorry to spoil your viewing :(

thankyou - though the more i look at this with its subtler colours i wonder - should it be a moth? :o

I just wanted to let you know that I don't really understand fractals. I see a lot of them in my dev inbox and tend to dismiss them. Couple that with a fear of butterflies in real life I have to admit that I was suprised to find this deviation really appealing.

I love the tones and the intricate textures, you have really made something beautiful and outstanding here. Something I never would have expected to fave :giggle: I don't know how fractals are made so I cant offer you any advice or anything, just a WOW, well done. Kate x

lol you and i both - i don't really get fractals myself - I've only recently begun to dabble with them thanks to fellow deviant :iconvirginprune: suggesting i try apophysis - i relented and dabbled some. a lot of what i do is still guesswork i really am clueless with the programme to a large extent - but on occasion i produce some interesting shapes - then move to photoshop to neaten them up as such - like with this image

the tone was something i really couldn't decide on for a while i was tempted for brighter ones but opted to leave it this very earthy greenish brown so glad i did because it has received quite a few compliments! :aww:

i really am surprised that if you have a fear of the creatures that you did fave this but i am so very glad that you did and thank you for your support
thankyou for the WOW also - but i think you deserve that more for bypassing your fear of a butterfly enough to study the piece long enough to note the textures and details that you admire and thus compliment on it
a huge thankyou :hug:
