This is a breakdown I like to do from time to time. At the top is a new design, and below are a few of the steps I took along the way to get to it. This isn't a tutorial, just a look behind the scenes. A big part of being a fractal artist is finding the balance between recognizing beauty and knowing how to refine it. If you stop as soon as you find something kind of cool, you'll miss the really great stuff that you can get to if you push the design further. At the same time, you have to learn when to stop. Tinker for too long and you'll get stuck in endless indecision and never feel finished.
