Thanks to you I got to know about this contest - great. I wouldn't advise Toshiba laptops though, since the Qosmio series was a huge flop and they insist on working with nVidia, the most bugged video card productor I've seen (all of my problems were with nVidia graphics cards)... At any rate, nice mandie. It really does give an autumnal atmosphere.
Thank you for your comment; I do appreciate the input. My other entry definitely has more color so with this one I wanted it to be a bit more neutral but I certainly don't want it be boring. I thought adding the marble/sphere would give it the needed boost.
So, I looked through the entries. I saw a lot of talented artists and some equally talented skins. However, your skin made me come back to it over and over. I love the stone-like feel of this fractal. It gives off a feel of elegance and strength. Well done, I hope you do well in the contest.
The pattern it reminds me of a seahorse in a way but the blacks remind me of outer space... but the browns tell me that its autumn so what you have are autumn seahorses in space... if i had to pick it would be the other one with the because its so much brighter but this... its got a style... No i know it it is... Guylian Chocolate Seashells... sorry i will shut up... its just so strange... normally i see something and know what it is... Fractal art seriously messes with the mind... autumn Guylian Chocolate Seashells in space maybe...
