    I love the stock but it seems kinda empty in my opinion. Couldn't find any fractals so I made my own. What do you guys think?

    I like it but its too simple, the flow is good. Sharpen the fractal up and add the same fractal on screen above the render/focal, maybe? IDK. Either way, I'd just spruce it up a bit :) KIU

    It's not cut off, it's the flame in front of her, maybe I should move it to the left more?

    To you. :p Here are both new versions, I just touched up her face, I didn't like her jawbone on the right, and I shrunk her nose and mouth a little.
