Ultrafractal 4.03

More messing around with offset masks and textures. This one uses Peter Kubik's "KPK Mobius' Julia Barnsley" along with a couple of Toby Marshall's formulas - "Modern Jazz" and "Big Brew Julia". I tried for textures like old wood with peeling paint and plaster and gave it a sepia hue to make it look "older". (aaaugh! he said the "o" word!! lol)

Thanks for stopping by - hope y'all had a great weekend!

***(Fine art giclee' prints of most of my work are available in limited edition on archival paper or canvas - e-mail: and get busy filling that empty spot on the wall! Unique, "one-of-a-kind" (edition size = 1) prints are also available*** :-)

This is extremely impressive fractal work! Looks like etching in stone, actually, and quite old; those KPK formulas are indeed wonderful to work with, and pairing them with something like the "Big Brew Julia" is just genius (not to mention that you really do have to know what you're doing for it to work!). Absolutely amazing work that you should be proud of! BRAVO!

After quite a while this is an image of yours that really caught my eye. I like the way you combined round and straight lines and lead the observer around, from down left to right up, back to the circle line, up to the lonely spiral in the top left corner. The sepia tone goes perfect with all this and of course with the name of the image. Usually I'm not a fan of these geometric compositions, but this time you got me. The only thing I am not sure about is the distribution of very dark and very light. The very dark parts are kind of clustered together in the lower part of the image, and it takes an effort to keep the eyes there, realizing that they are not just dark masses but very beautiful structures. Maybe it would help to lighten this part partially up? Like making some of the 'beams' lighter? I don't know.
By the way, I took the image into PS to experiment with the sepia tone. When I boosted the saturation up quite a bit, I liked the effect VERY much. The old sepia photos often have a more orangy brown about them which makes them look nearly colored.
