Melting Candies

©2015 katdesignstudio All Rights Reserved.

A delicious Apophysis loonie. Rendered, framed square and brightened in Chaotica (otherwise, all construction in Apophysis). 

Postwork in Photoshop, bottom layers to top:
Base fractal
Gradient, white to transparent top to halfway down of the image on Overlay blending mode
Invert adjustment layer
Levels adjustment layer (0, .28 and 216 with some masking to recover dimension and texture in the shadows)

This image was worked from some of my resulting params from a fractal pong session where I also created Pongalong by katdesignstudio, credit for original params for that session goes to :iconpiethein21: piethein21.

why the post processing?

Thank you! :D Oh, I know there is probably a way to do it in Chaotica by reversing the curves and all, but messing with selective color adds additional depth and dimension and brings out colors that aren't really naturally in the gradient. Especially with the photo filter. Also, I'm rebuilding my collection of gradients so my colors are limited in Apophysis, and the actual palette editor in Chaotica is still broken for me, so I'm stuck with the randomness of Shaders or Palette buttons.
