Thank you for your great comment!
As for making fractal art: the real fractal artists are using the formulas to make their fractals. I don't, I just use the software by sometimes pressing some buttons by luck and see what happens at random and sometimes using the parts of the software I know the meaning of ;)
But it the end it comes down to making something nice/beautiful/interesting that captures the imagination. The way it is made is not important then anymore IMHO :)
Your art is very inspirational to all of us artists and at Shadowness we like to thank our amazing artists for all they do, to show our appreciation for you, your artwork has been featured in todays Daily Inspiration #881
