This is another collaboration with Alastair Temple aka Smiling-Demon for theluminarium's Depth: theluminarium.net/v3/exhibits.…
He came up with a Mandelbulb render and asked me to create a portal for it that allows jumps through space. Postwork was done by us both in two steps. You can find his version here:

thank you, glad you like it!
I have to say those types of straight/blocky pink lens flairs at the bottom are really inspiring and cool.

Never saw them before; I have to try something like that out.

Hey! I think my collaborator did this with Adobe Aftereffects, and it's a plugin called 'optical flares'. You can also find prerendered ressources on deviantart with that search term. www.deviantart.com/popular-all…
Thanks a lot for the comment!
I already made something like that in pure Photoshop I guess.

Yeah it works in PS as well. After effects has a few more variations and you don't have to do everything manually, so it's a bit more convenient to use. But it's good for practice ro create these from scratch. :nod:
