More perlin noise based stuff for the challenge.

Thinking of the title quite possibly took more time than making the fractal.

Edit: So, I changed the image significantly. I just like this crop a lot better. Sorry if you miss the old version...

This is going be a trip for Friedrich to get a good description of the wild visuals I'm just dawning myself in here. I have seen perlin used in many ways, but this seems to be the most fun & vivacious one. I like the new crop it centers & tames the wildness of colors going in the center. I would love to see, some more fine tuned 'little shapes' at the top & bottom in dark areas, but I bet Jess did everything she could for the color mixes to bring out the most out of this piece. As for the title I'm almost tempted to change it to "If fried rich liked cypresses and summer" - what a thinker that would have been. Enjoy and bask & flourish like I do of those intense colors !!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
5 out of 7 deviants thought this was fair.

Firstly the colours in this are amazingly eye-catching. As I look into it, I see shapes of all kings of life-forms, from birds and frogs to suggestive forms of larger animals, and the souls of people - not humans as such, but their souls in an after life. There seems to be a great struggle going on; maybe there is a tempest and just maybe this strange disruption occurs every time a new soul enters into this dimension... It only vaguely depicts anything we can recognise in our present life, but is an utter expression of something beyond our comprehension, or our ability to put into actual words.

Another superbly composed piece of fractal art!

I'm fairly sure this is the prettiest fractal I've ever seen. Fabulous work.
Congratulations! Well deserved!

truly fantastic, love it
Wow! That is awesome! I played with the formula for a week and never saw anything like this. I love these challenges, I'm still new at this and everyday is a new surprise. I'm heading back to visit Mr. Perlin Noise again! :)

Part of the reason for the unusual shapes is that i was also using the perlin noise mapping on top of the perlin noise formula. But then again, I have some equally unusual mapping-free perlins coming up, so it is definitely a flexible formula on its own!

I am glad you like the image! :)
