The interior lights reflected along the window as I gazed between the twin planets.  The re-entry was delayed yet again due to unexpected flight patterns of the behemoths soaring through my homeworld's atmosphere, which did nothing to quell my anxiety of remaining on this ship for longer than was absolutely necessary.

Congratulations Sam!! Nearly missed this one cause I didn't think it was a fractal! :D

They look close enough together to make me wonder why gravity doesn't pull them together.

One of the planets could be monstrously large and far away, while the other is an orbiting moon flying near the viewer.  They could be binary planets that are indeed being pulled together, but not at a substantially fast rate.  It could be magic in the universe keeping them aligned.  Who knows, any of those solutions sound perfectly valid to me XD

Fair enough!

(I'm getting more scatterbrained from age & mini-strokes; just roll your eyes if I forget and ask this again!)

Are you serious? This is only Apo and Chaotica!? I read your other comment here and I still can't believe it.

The vast majority of my artwork is only edited in post to add a watermark.  In some sense, I take pride that I can do mostly everything with fractals, but recognize that I'm limiting what I could creatively accomplish by using and learning how to do postwork.  Crazy things with fractals are certainly possible [The Fun], and every now and then try to push what I do to the limits of both my own patience and ability when I'm really driven to do something.

After all this time watching what the community does, what you do, in these programs I wouldn't say you're limiting yourself. Of course you can do extra stuff in post but to be honest the number of things you can make with the hundreds of variations at our disposal is so colosal the only fair word to describe it is "infinite'. So nah, I doubt you need postwork. :p

Now if only one of the softwares decided to add a basic function to add text / watermarks / frames, that would be great. Ok, text function is a lot to ask, maybe just an a white or black frame and the watermark.

Eeh, in the capacity of pushing forward more coherent designs and bound structure, there certainly are limits to what fractals alone can accomplish given my skill level. That doesn't mean I wouldn't do postwork if I had confidence in it.  I just don't know what I would use it for, and have no real motivation to use it most of the time anyway.

For all conventional purposes, yeah there's the possibility of infinite exploration (thought in all technicality it's finite given there's probably a maximum transform count (2^32 or 2^64 or far less, I'm sure 1000 transforms would break many things), that double precision has a distinct number of values it can represent [1023*2^52 according to a stackoverflow post for 64bit doubles], and that only a limited number of variations / plugins have ever been created).


I do happen to have a python script I use to align and watermark my stuff, which can invert colors or do other random stuff.  If you're interested, I'd be happy to share it and how to use it.

Bless me, baby Jesus, is this one fractal? Or did you make the planet, the whooshy lights, and then paste the planets on a starry background? Whatever your technique, the result is amazing!

Indeed it is!  It uses xaos to layer multiple structures together in the same fractal, but aside from the watermark, it's an entirely unedited fractal render.  There's 15 iterators in it, which granted is more than I usually use, but not as much as some of the things like my avatar haha XD

When working on this, I did debate if I should add in a starfield in the background, but decided against it: a few effect transforms and massaging xaos and weights seemed to be enough!

I just found that. "Observer". Even zoomed in I can't tell it's a fractal. Looks like an extreme closeup of Godzilla. That is one spicy meatball, let me tell ya.
