    A beauty David. Fantastic work with very good colors

  • Thank you, Thea! These are much more difficult for me still than fractals in other programs, but I am learning great new techniques each time I try.

    Wickedly bright and beautiful. Give a person warning we need sunglasses so as not to burn our retinas.

    Really magnificent work my friend. :o)

  • Thanks, Bunny, for that great comment! Sunglasses might be needed, but 3-D glasses will have these popping off the screen at you, so do be careful! Best, David

    Congratulations on your March 2, 2011 feature in Fractal Abstracts! This is awesome!

  • Thanks so much, Kathleen! In a bloom tutorial group with mostly women’s creations, I worried that my “Man Flowers” might be somehow lacking…

    You’re very welcome and if you remember, you also got a feature last week on a bloom. Stop being so hard on youself you did fabulous! :)

  • Thanks, Coach, I still like the JuliaN outlines better, but I can tell I better shut up, because I have lived long enough to learn that when a lady likes her blooms, just give her the damn flowers :o))) (or more than wet noodles may be coming my way lol) Thanks, David

    I like the Julian outlines too. Seems very spacey. But enjoyable. lmfao David, you are smart enough to know when to give up, I like that! :) lol

    Love the striking colors!

  • Thank you, Sheryl!! This was the hardest of the 12 tutorials we’ve done in this group for me…I finally went back to it during Easter and made a few decent blooms with a lot of other digital tricks, but this was probably my best effort from the purely Apophysis images…
