FRACTALBRUSHED by DeepChrome FRACTALBRUSHED by DeepChrome
Another of my no-script experiments that turned out looking pretty nice. For a while I thought it looked like a bow and ribbon, then thought it made me think of abstract-art-style brushstrokes. Took some time to find a gradient that worked right with it, but at least it looks nice enough for me to consider rendering. :D

Enjoy. Apophysis 2.03. Postwork consists only of cropping, border, and text. :D

Cool effect... one I haven't seen before :sherlock:

I like the gradient, though the middle of the "strokes" seems a bit over-bright (or, over-white)... not sure what could be done with that though, and it all works out together very well anyway :)

Thank you. Oh, I try a bazillion gradients before I settle on one, so it was as good as it was gonna get. ;)

Heh, don't worry about it. I usually prefer dark magentas versus PINK pink. :D I have a dislike for pastel pink... >_>

Hmm, it probably would. I still have the high-res version floating about my puter...I think. :) I should try to make some wallpapers or something one of these days. :XD: Thanks.

:nod: Thank you. I thought it did...I wasn't sure if anyone else would see it that way, since the "bow" could easily be taken as a take on a 3-point star or some such. ;)

Thanks. Yeah it came out looking like a ribbon around an invisible box, so I just cropped it at the edges of the fractal, and turned the image into the wrapped box. :nod:

Awesome! You do such great work with non-black backgrounds. I dont think its easy to get fractals to look that great on much apart from black, you do it perfectly. Love it!:bow:

Thank you. :bow: Practice makes perfect. I made a habit early on of testing at least a white background and one color before settling on the background. That way if a fractal looks better in front of a lighter color, I'll find out rather than guesstimate. :D
