Well Oliviah, I'd like to say this one is beautiful. What I see first off though is a maze of inner city freeways - like in Hell-A (LA), albeit pretty colors... Is is hard to create this intricacy and pattern? It looks like it involved a lot of work on your part. Happy Tuesday!

I couldn't think of a title just looking at it, but when I saw the comment by tsduff, I think he is right. I want to thank you also for putting your work up in larger sizes, so much easier to see the intricacy of the fractals.

This is wonderfully worked. What does it say to you?
For me, it is symbolic of human relationships, couples close, but not indistinguishable, as they have their own indivdual identities. The road is never straight (each line looks almost like it is composed of tyre tracks, so that the road becomes the couple). And do they end? Well, forever is for as long as it lasts. Or is my imagination just running away with me?

Terry, I think I used the Weave script and then (this part I know) I used the Final Transform button and distorted the pattern. The only thing hard was trying to change the colours but that was fun, I learned a thing or two.

Mr.Chaos, I started making them larger because I read somewhere that when the versions are ended the flames can't be rendered again in the new versions. I don't know if that is true or not but I've been rendering a little larger just in case. If I had the time, (or knew how to batch render), I would make them even larger.

To everyone: I am sorry I have been so sporadic with visiting your blogs (or answering comments here). I haven't been feeling well & fretted over not being able to find words to make comments. You are precious.

Mile Stones, I love your take on this image. I worry a bit about my symmetrical fractals will strike a note with people or just look symmetrical (dzeni is really good at symmetry, they always evoke feelings of some kind rather than looking like blank precision) but I don't have her skills, so I try to distort my symmetrical work to evoke a thought or feeling.

My arms are going weak, hope I can respond to the comments on the fractal below this one.

Hugs and smoochies!!!

*correction--this wasn't made with the weave script, it's a tweak of Joel Faber parameters. I realized it wasn't the weave script when I tried using it today. :/

Here's yet another wonderful Oliviah creation. Absolutely beautiful, and intricate.
