I not necessarily agree with the fractal effect idea, but this is a
matter of taste. Regarding the idea with the CoF I agree.

However, consider that a fractal effect easily could become like a
tutorial video were the talked explanations become a melody by using

The fractal effect represents some kind of incense stick Goa techno
culture. Were is the skater street style, the Bauhaus
Mondrian Ikea middle-class style, the youngster Manga cosplay style,

For art I don't dislike the fractal effect per se, but I dislike the
idea of a biased representation of a tool for all arts.

If the fractal effect doesn't repeat a picture of pencil 10,000 times,
but instead the fractal would show category related art of incense stick
Goa techno culture + skater street style + Bauhaus Mondrian Ikea
middle-class style + youngster Manga cosplay style + foo and bar
fashion, this might be better. 10,000 different pictures inside a
fractal, yes, perhaps. 10,000 times repeating 1 picture, no.

Those suggestions are very good. Perhaps the artist could provide
something with a fractal effect. If I would be the artist, I would do
something based on those suggestions without fractal effect.

This seems to work without issues, due to the colouration.

>AI'm not sure it is a good idea to start moving the colors

I agree, you should stay with the colouration.
