Infected Strawberry by Krackers Infected Strawberry by Krackers
17 hours rendering time in apophysis 3d, a special shout out goes to :icontrente: on this one for hooking me up with a apoph tutorial that taught me more about 3d values and Julian.

"... You're saying it spoke to you?"

Honestly I mostly only understand photography and post processing for photography. However, I felt like I would critique my fav from your gallery as you did that for me. This almost looks like a painting as the colors, when I look closely, are so smooth and at places and rough at others. The concept is very original, and I like the light fruity colors. On first glance it actually makes me think of a red ball dropping into a pool of strawberry yogurt or something. Also, if you look at the ball its the only place that has yellow which can also be taken as a reflection of something that is out of the shot. There is a lot to this piece and I think its very eye catching and done very well.
What do you think?

Like the comment before mine, I'll easily admit that I know very little about the process of making Fractal Art. I just enjoy looking at it and browsing through the gallery.

The first thing that sets this apart from the fractal art I'm used to seeing around the site is the soft scatter-quality about it. Rather than being distinct shapes building upon one another, this is more wind-swept, so to speak. Different, odd. Not a bad thing, I'm thinking. I like it.

The main critique I can offer (for lack of knowing the actual process that went into making this) is that I'm not sure if the title is really working for or with the image. Usually, I like the title to add something to my perception of the image - for me to go "Oh! I see it now. That's so cool!". Here, however, I squinted this way and that, and I can only see the "infected" part of the "infected strawberry" title. I don't really see this image as a strawberry. The only similarities in my mind is the color.

Maybe a red blueberry. Or a melting, rosy eyeball, or a droplet of water falling into a fogged up waste lake...

Of course, the final call is up to you, but thought I'd mention it. =]

Thank you for sharing this and good luck with your art!

Thanks! I was just wondering...
Apo 3d always has a way of not smoothing out quality...

My only suggestion would be to sharpen the main focus and the julian splatters around it while trying to smooth out the back a little bit more.

Awesome work :D
