Gruesome, but even fractals need to eat. Goldeen couldn't believe his luck when a fractal fairy flittered by.

Chaotica and Photoshop CS5.

Render time: 12h 58m
SL 15.10
Painted in Photoshop; no third party resources used.

When this came up in Chaotica, I saw in the swirling shadows a black shape with horns and golden eyes. I thought, "You can't go around saving every random fractal just because it's kind of cool, Tootles. It's time you started doing REAL fractals. Leave it alone!"

But those golden eyes gazed out at me and wouldn't let me go.

The fairy's face looks distorted (perhaps by terror) but I made an attempt to fit it to the underlying shapes in the fractal. She is as she is, really.

I called this I'm No Angel because of a Dido song playing at the time. I nearly changed it to Bug Squash, but... (1) she's not a bug and wouldn't thank you for calling her one; (2) the song was partly the inspiration.

Happy Fractoleen, all. :-)

love this one! no you can't save them all, Tootles...sorry. so why not have some fun. just one thing i cant help but ponder, did the fractal fairy that flittered by become a fried fritter? :) yeah its offical, Ive been at the screen too long.

all kiddin aside, this is Really Really Good! Talent i wish i had.

I did Enjoy the song. at first i thought Allman Brothers. you did list Dido, so no disappointment there.

What happens if you get scared half to death... twice?

Fried Flitter... I never thought of that. :-) Possibly he only eats wings, and her wings will grow back, but I don't know. Just a fleeting glimpse into the murky underside of Chaotica...

"yeah its offical, Ive been at the screen too long."

You're far from being the only one!

Thank you, Bruce. :-) It was a shorter render than usual... I wasn't sure if anything would come of it, then realized I had no choice. (Spooky music)....
