A Postcard from Moontown by quartertime A Postcard from Moontown by quartertime
Incendia EX V and Paint Shop Pro.

I had a lot of fun with this Pagoda fractal. It contains 68 baseshapes. The Incendia maximum is 64 baseshapes per buffer file, so I had to borrow four of the interior baseshapes from the first fractal (the solid layer) to form the glass rings (the transparent layer).

I used a version of this fractal in a collaboration with Doriano Benaglia here: [link]

Thank you, Cyndi.

BTW, I love your Dec 9 Journal entry. I may be old, but I'm not dead, and a woman with curves can still make me write bad checks.

You're quite welcome!

And thanks. :D I'm decidedly in the camp of "real women have curves".

Whoa-ho-ho. This is excellent. I'm very jealous of artists who are able to create things like this. :)

Thank you, Kelly.

When I was young, I was jealous of more accomplished artists, too. Now that I'm old (REALLY old) and I've had years to develop some style and technique, I'm jealous of young artists like yourself.

You have so much energy and vision, and all of that discovery ahead of you. Please keep drawing.

Wow. Thank you. I really, really appreciate you dropping some wisdom on me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I think this is exactly what I needed. Thank you.

(Your work really is outstanding. :3)

PS Sorry for the incredibly late reply. ._.

Thank you, SparrowDove.

The title wasn't meant to be anything clever; it just popped into my head when I looked at the finished render. Maybe those are the best kind.

"Nathan" appears under your DA name in the upper left corner of your Profile page. It's a cool, distinctive name, good in any century.

This reminds me of a pixelated story called To the Moon. :D I like the colors you've made in this one. It's certainly been a while since I've been on deviantART... so I'm just here to comment on the first piece of awesomeness that I happen to come across on the Daily Deviations. ;) Well done on this one. But I wonder what's at the top...

Thanks, Ely!

You wonder what's at the top? I'm not sure... but it could be the coffee shop where Nathan first met Angela.

...........O_O.............The Nathan and Angela series? I haven't done that one in SO long. Do you think I should get to work on it again?
Reply
:iconquartertime:
quartertime Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013
Yes.

For every fractal image that I eventually submit to DA, I've discarded about ten earlier versions. It takes trial & error to develop a promising fractal.

Seems to me that creative writing is a similar (but far more challenging) process. Nat & Angela are interesting characters, and I think they're worth developing.

..Hmm.... Perhaps... Thank you for the words of inspiration, but... I don't think that people enjoy reading my books. Not everybody, at least... My purpose for creating this account on deviantART is to entertain the public. Not everyone wants to be entertained, because in their opinion reading is a chore more than anything... So I created a YouTube account instead, to try and communicate to the audience visually, rather than mentally.
