Daily Deviation

Given 2010-07-05
The suggester says of Fossil by ~j-diche, "A simple flame but with a strong contrast in the flame and gradient. A real smooth piece." I very much agree; the parchment-look background and wonderfully delicate spiral bring a sense of age to an otherwise modern piece. ( Suggested by SaTaNiA and Featured by NatalieKelsey )

I love the nature colours used in this picture, and how it provides an interesting contrast with the soft background. I'd like to see some of the finer details though, and the left corner feels a little empty. And I'd like to ask why the extending lines go only in one direction?

It's also somewhat peculiar to see it die off at the top. I'm sure you have your reasons as the artist as to why you didn't add on to it. Maybe the picture would be killed...?

Has more potential that can be exploited, but I'm not sure whether it would spoil the pic, since you're the artist. Overall, very gentle, very beautiful, and relaxing. Lovely :)

Sorry for the long comment, just curious on the artwork :)

its in the shape that it is cause I was making a desktop for myself. Also, I was going off a memory of a single fossil in a piece of shale and wanted to stick to it. glad you like it

What a lovely photograph. Reminds me of a leaf that one holds up to the sun to see the delicate vains. But this looks less leaf-life when viewed more carefully. It kind of looks like a snowflake with the little details one first over looks. I like it...it looks dreamy and like a snowflake should...it looks unique.
