Phoenix Heart -Be Reborn-

By fanficbug
May your heart rise from the ashes and be reborn again this Valentine's Day.


EDIT: Parameters are at the bottom. :eyes:

:winner: My entry to the Apophysis Weekly Theme Challenge #7 ([link]) is finally finished! :excited:

This render (as some already know) took me a long time of tweaking to finish--originally, it had been one lackluster fractal, but then the render crashed, so I tweaked it again. I spent over seventeen hours in Apophysis getting the shape right, all told. And this is a pure render (except for the frame and text, lol), so I had to torture it out of Apo. :lol:

I'm excited about this piece, and I hope you guys will be too. :love:

Tools used: Apophysis 2.05 beta 2, Photoshop for frame and text

Hope you guys enjoy!


I give permission for ~ChipNoir to use this in an animation. :)


EDIT 4/13/13: As promised, parameters. :D Please make substantive changes before submitting any images made with them--i.e. don't just zoom in/change color and render. Tweak it! Please also let me know when you've used the params by linking to your work in a comment on this piece. Further wishes re: commercial use can be found here: [link]

Wow!!!! :jawdrop: This is the way to do fractal art. Very dramatic and detailed.
Hey, I know it probably means nothing to you but I really like this.

Artists this good always leave me in awe

Keep doin' what you're doing! :>

:no: It definitely means something to me and I really appreciate the time you took to drop by and tell me what you thought. :hug:

I noticed that you're new to deviantART; I hope you have a good time here. :) This is really a great place for improving on what you've already learned in your chosen form, though it takes a long time to receive recognition so don't get discouraged. :aww: Your hard work will pay off.
Haha, I'm glad :)

And thanks for the advice, but it's too late :P

I get no recognition anywhere anyways, so I'm pretty much just bummed out about it.

Ah well, I'm not surprised I don't have talents in art :P

I am most uncreative.

But you're not, so keep doin' what your doing! :>
