Celestial by JLarenART Celestial by JLarenART
Life can be a lot like a never-ending highway.. Always winding, twisting and turning...
You get on a ramp, you get off on another... a new city, a new town, a new home. Days pass like dreams.. then, another year of highway is gone.
And there, at the center.. something we can't quite grasp seems to drive us. We are compelled to go on.. to take an unkown path.. or return to an old one.

Every mile, every sunset, every disaster.. this force is with us. What it is.. I leave up to you.




Seeing as I like this so much and am very proud of it, logic would dictate that it'll be unpopular.. HAH. But that's okay if so.
The parameters used were similar to that of Kat's Poisoned Hourglass, but with a squeeze of lime. I was tempted to make it symmetrical.. but thought what the hell, it "fits" better this way.
Enjoy!

Really cool! For some reason, it makes me think of Metroid Prime 2.

I saw this piece in the favorites of another deviant and I have to say it really caught my eye. The very intricacies of the design are breath-taking. Not to mention I really like the gentle and muted tone of blue used, kind of like night falling. And finally, the clarity and sharpness of this piece is quite excellent. All in all, a definite fave.

(Sorry for the book of a comment! :ohmygod:)

I really liked your description of this piece, did you make it up yourself or is it from a book/song?

Hmm.. render settings will help you a lot. Gamma, between 2.25 and 2.75 in general... up the brightness a bit. But smoothness also has a lot to do with how you use a blur transform in your fractal :)

I would agree... This one does stand out from your other submissions. It's very good... I get a Giger vibe from it. Maybe the blue, or the slight face I'm seeing.

Good job.
