Madmaven created a fractal and asked if I'd take on the challenge of creating something different out of it. Although the original is not on the Caedes site anymore, you can see her fractal in the background of the jeweled piece running through the image by the butterfly.

Great work Nathan. You managed to keep the tribal spirit of Terri's fractal. This is exciting that you responded to her challenge. Love the banner and the butterfly.

Such a gentle wallpaper. I love the 3D butterfly, which seems to be drawn to Terri's inlaid pattern as well. A great collaboration you two!

I am almost speechless, though of course I knew you could knock everyone's socks off with whatever you would do! Thank you Nathan....VERY much, for the beautiful creation you made from my shabby lil apop render! It really means a lot to me...and I don't think anybody here disagrees that you are the King of Caedes...as far as art! All that...and a good and decent heart too! Terri


PS: I am even more excited at the title and theme....as nothing is more beautiful to me than woodlands!

I have a passion for butterflies and the contrasting colours are just a delight. Awesome :-)
