Just a reminder that this challenge is still on-going and we look forward to seeing many more entries over the next couple of months
ALSO: Keep your eyes peeled for a brand new challenge about to be held at
We are looking for beautiful fractals made with Ultra Fractal
depicting the Summer Season and in particular, the Colours of Nature in Summer.
These are open to individual interpretation depending on whereabouts in the globe you are living. You may produce a scene, or you can go conceptual and use the style you feel suits you best.
Here's an example of a scenario you might like to imagine:
You are walking up the side of a Swiss mountain in the early evening of a Summer's day, and all around you are pretty little wild flowers in full bloom, some peeking through the short grass, others growing tall and strong. The views are extraordinarily beautiful, and you see the chalet where you are staying not too far above you. In the distance you hear the gentle sound of cow bells, and close by you hear the evensong of a myriad of birds, some flying overhead, others hidden in the grasslands. The fragrance from the flowers comes to you in wafts of a gentle breeze and you sit down to drink it all in. You close your eyes... A fractalized image starts to form in your mind...
We do have one rule specifically for this challenge though, and that is that you use at least some of the colours in this chart www.florianiaustralia.com/medi…
within your gradient, and they need to be clearly seen in the image you produce.
Tutorials about how to include colours from other images into your gradient can be found here fav.me/d5fusz2
and here fav.me/d8vl6pf
