It started as a fractal leaf. Fractal leaves fascinate me. I don't know why, they just do. After working on lighting and colors, I started to hunt for textures. First came the marble texture, then I found the bricks, so that theme matched.
The name I had a hard time with, probably because I kept thinking "Welcome to the Jungle," by Guns and Roses.
Anyway, one of the lines from Jurassic Park that still hangs with me is when one of the scientists states that nature will find a way, right after they had discovered the dinosaurs had changed their sex in order to not die off. Add to that I remembered watching a show on Inca and Mayan societies that had become overrun with trees to the point they were completely hidden. Like ivy clinging to a brick wall...
And this still isn't what I wanted to do with this image. Really frustrating formula, and I've been working on this way too long with only this to show. Time to move on.
