Ascension, Everything Connected by Rick-Lilley Ascension, Everything Connected by Rick-Lilley
Everything and Everyone is Interconnected.

In this atomic soup we call reality infinite forms are conjured from the same materials,
like a self perpetuating fractal of varying calculations. Life takes on its myriad of forms, cycling and recycling through the same pattern of Generation, Operation and Destruction.

This evolutionary process of creation and recreation is necessary for adaption to an ever changing environment and to achieve perfect symbiosis, connecting everything together.

Evolution is simply the fractal in action, making the adjustment it needs to refine and redefine itself, in conjunction with itself.

at first when i saw the thumbnail i was like "oh cool some butterflies and a flower thats nice" but then when i zoomed in to see the details i was like "whaaaaaaat"

from a technical standpoint i am in awe in the amount of detail and patterning you put into this. this is incredible. my eye keeps  moving all over the place trying to take up everything in! i could spend hours getting lost in all of the movements of the lines.

and from a symbolic standpoint i gotta smile at your choice in the butterflies for your theme of evolution. monarch's are definitely a top pick for an evolutionary species. i only recently learned that they evolved to migrate around a certain area in north america due to remembering a mountain range which now no longer exists. its cute!

but back to your work, everything is awesome! nice job on all of this! >u<
