It really reminds me a Tool (the music band) artwork, where these shapes were eyes. Did you ever see it? Really nice piece by the way!

I don't listen to Tool. Is this what you're talking about? [link]

They look kinda like bugs trapped in silk. Which gives this an interesting but kinda freaky feel. well done :)

Nice gradient and shading going on here.

I have to say AmorinaAshton said it: It reminds me of cockroaches...and other creepy-crawlies I'd rather not see. It also looks like larvae gestating too.

Either way, cool job with getting Apo to do that. :O_o:

8-) cool! Like everyone else, I see larvae gestating in some kind of matrix.

The shape is very unusual and i like it but it does kinda remind me of cocoons or even worse cockroaches :fear: :giggle:

:lol: lots of people seem to be seeing bugs or worse here too. It reminded me of the metal "biots" in Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke (or maybe Rama II by Clarke and Gentry Lee :confused:)

Excellent piece! Is it Glynn function world?
Reply
:iconjoelfaber:
JoelFaber Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2008
Thank you! I'm glad you like it :)

This is a flame fractal -- I don't think Glynn fractals can be generated in this type of fractal.
