I actually finished this before I left this weekend, but didn't have time to render it. :P

Please FULL-VIEW and enjoy :flame:

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-04-23
The Suggester Writes: "There are numerous positives to this piece, but what strikes me, rather overwhelmingly, is that it looks more like what you see in the Abstract categories rather than the Fractal Art gallery. It has an uncomfortable aura about it, with the smoke and black lines. But, what I like most is the actual 'wildfire' itself. Normally, color clash looks really bad in a fractal, but it has been put to really good use here. The perspective is brilliant. It makes the viewer seem like they're viewing the wildfire from above. I can't recommend this fantastic fractal enough." ~ Wildfire by `Nestalgica ( Suggested by TwilightAmbiance and Featured by Sophquest )

This reminds me oddly of Hellboy when the demons god things or whatever they were started coming out of the clouds.

It's almost like an above view of them crawling out into out world.

Haha awesome work.

Congrats on your "daily deviation" notice :clap:

This astounded me! Every which way I tried to look at it, straight up, on my side, or on my head, I just couldn't find a ground; as if a tear or rift in space had opened up to engulf this earth in a burning hellfire ^^ Sadly, what I think are palm trees will be disintegrated. They looked so illusionary, like when you're slightly tipsy, but still cognative enough to stand (probably not the best way to put that ^^';). Agh... Better stop typing upside-down... Anyways, this was spectacular, and I hope to see some more fractal art from you ^^

The ripple effect reminds me of sound waves, as if this is a visual representation of sound.

Looks like a biohazard symbol if you ask me.

Hella awesome. Which variation(s) did you use?

Desert Rift.

In a place without time,
I give your fire and you give me mine.
Aloud we speak of the sand,
and I feel as you want to touch my hand.
But in this rift, in this space,
both of us are there, but in a different place.

Just something that your picture inspired!
I took the liberty of renaming.

Cool design, especially since I caught something after staring at it for a while. While I think that fire effect is really well done, the thing that strikes me is the intentional or not intentional bio-hazard sign that you managed to make -- that is so cool! :o

Great colors as well, nice and smoky, with the signature touch of fire. :)

:iconnestalgica:
Nestalgica Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe, the bio-hazard symbol pretty much comes with the technique. :giggle: Or some variant that makes it look similar. ;p

:) I'm glad someone caught the smokiness -- that's exactly what I was going for. :D Thanks, Matt!

I think this is one of your best pieces, at least for me.. the first thing I thought was spiders, a fight between two perhaps.. I love the color choice and I love the overall movement of the piece. it's exciting piece to look at for me, thanks for sharing it :)
