3D artwork and fractals are fields I am unfamiliar with; that being said I am unable to accurately judge on the techniques you used to render this piece. However it is without saying that I find this piece alluring but in a very limited way. This is partly due to the title to which, upon being read, I would expect some extravagant artwork depicting a jewel with much more of an impact; the theme of presenting the jewel would involve numerous references to a marine environment such as seaweed, sea life, colorful coral, etc all formed in a way that would help to gradually draw the attention to the jewel (which in this case is a pearl) without detracting too much attention at the same time.

Instead I find a pearl situated upon sponge-like forms completely unfamiliar surrounded by bio-luminescent lights that, to me, detracts more attention from the somewhat dullness of the pearl which completely contradicts the supposed impact of the title and the jewel itself. I love Love LOVE the idea of bio-luminescence used to grab the attention and create an impact but again it nearly takes too much of my attention away; there is no flow that drags the attention to the pearl.

The lack of marine life/setting that I would expect to see when reading "Jewel of the Sea" leaves the art practically lifeless. Of course marine life isn't the focus of the art but I would be one to assume, when I read "Jewel of the Sea", that the art itself would present relevance to the title. Instead of "Jewel of the Sea" I just think of "Jewel of the "Glowing Sponges"" because I can't make out any relevance to the original title other than the pearl.

The Good:

-Your use of colors (the black gives great depth and makes the lights stand out)
-Vision of Bio-luminescence sticks with the title and creates wonder and mystery!

The Bad:

-Art in general does not adhere to the title...
-Lack of flow with/divided attention

As a suggestion: Stick with the bio-luminescence but use it as flow for attention to the pearl, downsize pearl and offset its position closer to a corner so as to not make it seem to compensate for lack of capturing attention due to other components in the art (or lack thereof), add some marine life strategically in places to draw attention to the pearl (ie. circular motion, swimming towards jewel), and make the jewel stand out with a bit more reflective sheen (Jewels should shine when jewels come to mind!)!

I believe this is a great concept that just needs a little fine tuning to appeal more and become relevant! If ever you do plan on re-editing this PLEASE let me know of the finished product, I really love this concept and can't wait to see its improvements!
