Giuseppe Arcimboldo: Italian painter (Milano, 1527 - 1593). He was
court painter in Praga, for emperor Ferdinando I, Massimiliano II and
Rodolfo II. He created various caricatures and allegories, that can be viewed
at Vienna museum and at Johanneum of Gratz; clever artist, his imaginative
and bizarre inventions seem to precede some trend of modern surrealism.
Created in UF3 (no postwork)
483 layers was needed!!! It was an huge work, for me, but the time spent
for this finally paid off.
Dedicate to all formula writers and fractal community, that make this immage
PS. I want to say thanks to my dear PIII 1000, that has endured this work, and
has crashed 'only' a couple of times, during this work.

Extroadinary bit of artistry. I didn't know photoshop had that many layers it it!

What a spectacular looking image, the huge amount of work this must have taken deserves a big VOTE, it is an amazing work !!!!!

This is such a wonderful portrait! I had to write a paper on him last term! You have done something wonderful in tribute!

Thid is truly a remarkable and fantastic fractal - your patience, skill and artistry has really paid off! Just brilliant!

I dont no what to say, this is extraordinairy. I am impressed, hat of!!! RS

FANTASTIC WORK. I'm quite "open mouth". Neither imagined that was possible to do such a masterpiece with the use of a technicall parade of instruments...Probably is a little easier to send a rocket on Mars or Saturn...!!! INCREDIBLE IMAGE --ULTRACOMPLIMENTS--One image to remember that I put into my preferites..!!!!

brilliant work - not easy! if ever in london, do go see some of the orginals in the national gallery. interesting and as you say 400yrs ahead of their time - though to me somehow a bit creepy...

Hi Daniele, that beats everything. I never saw this before. So realistic all; so well done. And yes, Giuseppe Arcimboldo is well known. We have some posters from his paintings. This one was painted in 1573 and the title is: L'estate (summer). Tonight I try to open the UPR. Of course you're getting the vote from us. Marleen and Jos.

I think I can say with confedence that you have taken UF farther than anyone ever has. It's a masterful piece, especially with every element being your creation.
kimpe () 1:16PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
I dunno, I think you're holding something back here, lol. Just a fantastic image. Vote

han excellent work wu=ith nice drawing and colors. felicitation. have a good day
Rykk () 1:24PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
Absolutely incredible, Daniele! I'm with Keith - this is "state of the art" Ultrafractal work. An excellent fractal reproduction of Arcimboldo in all details. I think 438 layers is a record for UF - I think Maria has done around 250. I can't imagine the dogged perseverence and heart this must have taken to do on a P111. Outstanding composition using all fractals and fractal textures!

An extraordinary piece of work, Daniele. If anything fractal is deserving of being called a masterpiece, this is. You are a pioneer and an Artist. My sincere congratulations.
Asylumc3 () 1:48PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
This is a masterpiece, I'm continually suprised by what can be accomplished in UF3!! It's an amazing amount of patience and talent shown here. 438 layers??!! Maybe next week I can get my mouth to close!!
RodolfoCiminelli () 2:21PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
Questa una stupenda ricreazione di Arcimboldo, cosi 483 layers che furono necessari per la creazione di questa opera lo dice. Lo congratulo per la gran pazienza e per l'enorme tempo che gli avrportato fare questo lavoro..!! I miei auguri ed il mio voto, oltre ad essere d'ora in poi una delle mie immagini preferite.
FractaziaFractals () 2:39PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
I am 100% with fractalinda,Deagol and Rykk! Many congratulations!!!
spiegel428 () 2:39PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
Wow, I can only imagine the amount of work that went into this.

Pannyhb () 5:37PM | Sun, 25 July 2004
It's so wonderful to see you posting again - and I'm with Keith and Rick on this one, Daniele - you've taken UF far beyond anything I've ever seen! The results are magnificent, and if ever a fractal deserves to be called a "masterpiece" it is this one! Bravo!!!
