To be honest... i am really not a huge fan of "abstract" art. But here's my jaw just drop on the floor.
First the vision : The overall aspect is just wonderful. Warm colors which really contrast with the dominant white. The shapes are eye catching and attractive. The texture give a real depth and life to the flame.
The originality : To be honest as i'm not a huge fan, and I'm not use to watch a lot's of those kind of word, this seem to be very original and unique.
The overall impact is just awesome. simply by watching the thumb I know it was an instant fav ! The flame has a real impact, and by looking even more carefully I can't stop finding more details and thinking this flame has a unique style !
I really love it, thanks for this artwork and of course keep it up !
I don't think it's too much...It's the combination of great composition, colours, and texture that give this a real traditional painting feel to it. And to me, digital art (and fractal art) that can do this belongs in a gallery!
